Carl Barat
Under The Influence

Interestingly, before Carl Barat met Pete Doherty, he didn't even know who The Smiths were. They introduced each other to different music and, consequently, influenced each other's musical style. Some of these selections on this compilation aren't surprising to anyone who's followed his career; The Mamas and the Papas' "Dream a Little Dream" has be...view item »

Sugarshack
Persepolis Will Burn Again EP

More spillage from the Canadian post rock mountain. This time from Sugarshack on Cellar Records. More of the same. For fans of Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Detwije, The Workhouse, Explosions in the Sky, My Education blah blah blah blah blah. Pretty, everything's-ok post rock. All songs guaranteed to start quietly and get no...view item »

Mek Obaam
You & I

Mek Oabaam CD in on Earsugar. I played this yesterday and it totally blew me away. Though I couldn't decide if it was everything else we heard was dreadful, so it just sounded good, or if it actually was good. I asked Clinton and he couldn't help me. So fresh ears, fresh day, it's sunny we're happy, and it still sounds good. His p...view item »

Diefenbach
Favourite Friend

I did release a record by Diefenbach once and am still utterly amazed to hear that they've changed in the way they have in such a short time. So much so it regularly comes up in conversation here and at some point in the next week Clinton will rip my mouth off and pull his own ears off in case I can still make noise. They started off sou...view item »

Les Georges Leningrad
Soopa Doopa

Canadian mentalists Les Georges Leningrad have a remix 12" of 'Soopa Doopa' out for the more discerning post punka DJ out there! The ace gollywog sleeve is enough to have you scratching yer perplexed bonce for one! The psychotic worry-inducing lyrics are reminiscent of a complete mental breakdown whilst the re-jigs by Soutien G...view item »

Disco Drive
What's Wrong With You People?

Disco Drive CD on Unhip... Sounds rather a lot like Les Savy Fav. Not bad at all....view item »

Oasis
Don't Believe The Truth

The difference between 4 and 5 stars for me is this: The lyrics are uniformly strong, but don't really take it to the next level. The biggest example is the use of the phrase "Blowin' my mind." Three songs in a row use this phrase: Mucky Fingers ("All the phoneys blowin my mind"), Lyla "I waited for a thousand years for you to come and blow me o...view item »

Nine Black Alps
Not Everyone

Nine Black Alps have been garnering rather a lot of fuss recently with their debut 7" on Melodic causing a frenzy,leading to being signed to Island. Well, they're a rather unoriginal yet hugely enjoyable mass of freewheeling energy, time changes & catchy dynamics. Totally old skool indie moshpit rock that won't set...view item »

Prosaics
Aghast Agape

First up a hilarious record by Prosaics on Dim Mak via Matador called 'Aghast Agape' well I was 'Aghast and Agape' (ha ha ha) when I put the needle on this record to find that I was immediately thrust back once again into the dark days of  the early 80's when  bands all wanted to sound like Joy Division/ The Cu...view item »

GoGo Goddess
Pearl Necklace

The undeniably mental Kool Pop label has gone on release schedule overdrive in the last couple of weeks. Last week we had a superb E.P. by Din-ST which I didn't have time to review. 6 tracks of unabashed dubraggagabba insanity with some mischeiovous scamps pictured on the label. If you liked the...view item »

Mcsleazy
Franzie Boys

The Franzie Boys 12" on the Half Inch Label FB- Domino are gonna be pissed at this DB- poorly executed, amateurly spliced dodgy cash in C- put together in 5 seconds.... FB- This is a bootleg thing of 4 Franz Ferdinand songs spliced with 4 Beastie Boys songs. And it's shockingly...view item »

Patrick Wolf, Various
Bjork (Army Of Me Remixes)

This album is a mixed bag from artists over the world -- France, UK, Canada, US, Sweden-- and the results range from wonderful (track 2) to kitschy (tracks 7 & 20) to just plain awful (tracks 1,4,5,18). In essence, this album has something for everyone, and with all the money going to charity, remember it's after Christmas yes, but Santa Cla...view item »

The Duke Spirit
Love Is An Unfamiliar Name

Now The Duke Spirit. Some of their tracks have gone right below my radar in the tune stakes but 'Love Is An Unfamiliar Name' is a fine number indeed, on a par with the excellent 'Dark Is Light Enough'. A compulsive, voodoo mantra that builds up, then twists & snakes it's way into yr brain. The other side of the PJ Harvey rip o...view item »

Idlewild
I Understand It

Brand new Idlewild single on 2 x CD and numbered 7". I don't really like Idlewild and I always get every new release to review. I don't see the point of me reviewing this so I'm not gonna bother. I don't like cheese, (the food..... which I'm told I'm wierd for not liking) yet you wouldn't give me a plate of it and ask me to s...view item »

Persil
Tune Up

I've never heard anything by Persil before despite them having 2 albums out I've managed to avoid 'em somehow. They're how I thought it would be after checking out this new CD single. Jangly indie affair with a slight wobbly disconcerting thing happening. It's kind of old school with a modern twist and Brian likes the ladies vocals whic...view item »

Howard Hello
EP

Also in on the same label is a CD by Howard Hello which is a chap from Tarentel/ Rumah Sakit, someone from Dilute and a lady from The Court and Spark. This is a sobering affair. With breathey lady vocals, twangly guitars, swirly keyboard sounds and genuinely interesting music what ...view item »

3 Inches Of Blood
Advance And Vanquish

3 Inches of Blood are about as self-consciously `old-school' as any modern North American metal band that you're likely to find. In fact, they're so Maiden and Priest-esque that some have supposed them to be parody. They say they aren't, and either way, they rock like hell if you're into this sorta thing. On the down side, all of their songs on Adv...view item »

Kathryn Williams
Shop Window

I can cope with Kathryn Williams much better. It sits nicely on my ageing ears  Though I didn't really know what to say about it so I had a quick peek on Google to see what other folks were saying and lo and behold every single review of it was the same. How appalling is that. Obviously cut and pasted from some press sheet. They all...view item »

The Broken Blackbird Ensemble
Gadzooks!

New on Early Winter Recordings  - a new CD by The Broken Blackbird Ensemble. This is improvised music with things squeaking and being plucked at irregular intervals. The main man is James Green who is in Big Eyes. It also has several former  Big Eyes staff in attendance. Fits neatly  into th...view item »

Chok Rock
Big City Loser

Perhaps deliberately I didn't notice the Chok Rock CD/12" (on Warp) lying in the box of new stuff we rifle through to pick our review choices. Perhaps I thought It looked a bit....well....shit. It's filtered French judder funk with added aroma. Annoying in that cut up soulful vox way that Super Collider had but then ...view item »

Rusuden
Formulae Remixes

That Rusuden fella who had a CD out on Sonic Terror ages ago (which I frankly can't remember a thing about) returns with a set of remixes on Terminal Dusk. 8 trax reworked from 'Formulae' by the likes of Wisp, Ochre, Multiplex, Line 47, The Gasman, Enduser,  Rusuden & ferchrissakes DOOFGOBLIN! Starts ...view item »

Silver Sun
Disappear Here

Silver Sun’s eponymous debut from 1997 had some genuinely great power-pop songs on it. What came after wasn’t quite as good, their songs seem to lack the urgency and melodic punch of their debut. “Disappear Here” was their third album and came after a seven-year hiatus. Whilst you can tell that it’s the same band th...view item »

10,000 Things
10,000 Things

I once saw 10,000 Things live and I quite enjoyed them. I can't promise what sort of state I was in but I'd guess I was reasonably muntered. I did enjoy them though. They were really full of energy like they'd just eaten a whole box of Ready Brek washed down with a dozen cans of red bull. On record though they sound like someone standing...view item »

Tears of Abraham
Sacrificing The Text

Am bored of pretty now. I fancy something dark. Something evil... perhaps something evil and dark? I know. I'll stick on this Tears Of Abraham CD which we just got in from Distraction Records. Numbered of 100 copies in an evil oversized case complete with evil insert.... Dark experimental ambience for the evil masses.  One to...view item »

Fans of Kate
I Don't Know What To Do With My Hands

More of that Moshi Moshi guff. This time a CD only release by Fans of Kate. It starts off sounding like Ultravox and Yellow Pearl by Phil Lynott and then goes more trad guitarry indie. It's quite mainsteam actually and I don't   know what else to say about it cos it's horrible. Oh it's a got a Simian Mob...view item »

Pedro
Early Pedro

Something a little more soothing now. We like Pedro here and Melodic have seen fit to compile all of his out of print 12"'s plus the Pedro V Kathryn Williams EP all on one small but compact shiny disc. So now you can throw away all your 12"'s which take up loads of space and replace with this nice CD. This ...view item »

Supersystem
Born In To The World/ Defcon

Ok now a great 12" by Supersystem on Touch and Go. Well...the A side is great. It sounds like it was made in 1984....its a strange concoction. There's a bit of the retro 80's sound of Zoot Woman but don't let that put you off. The tight angles of a band likb e Q and not U spring to mind and the vocals tell a str...view item »

Queen Adreena
FM Doll

Oh Fats you've saved the best til last. Queen Adreena who is the lady out of Daisy Chainsaw. Metal riffs and terrifying crazy lady vocals. Not happy at all. Maybe its the dreadful guitar solo that got her so angry. Second song is all bluesy and a bit of an improvement. On One Little Indian on 7" and CD....view item »

Super Furry Animals
Under The Influences

If you're the kind of person who loves music and are always on the lookout for exposure to new artists and sounds, compilation series like "Under the Influence," "DJ Kicks," and "Late Night Tales" are a godsend. The Super Furry Animal's entry is no exception. Great stuff is all over this disc, songs you'd never hope to find elsewhere, all collec...view item »

The Franciscan Hobbies
Walls Are Stuck

Don't really know too much about this lo-fi neo-psychedelic band. I do know that I liked what I am hearing from this album. Tunes here that definitely make this CD worth checking out are the opener under-a-minute droning "The Modern Revival", "Elijah The Stone", "Goat With A Dolphin Face", the nine-minute "Asmodeus", the beautiful-sounding (almo...view item »

The Perceptionists
Black Dialogue

Chances are that if you're looking into buying this, then you know who Mr Lif, Akrobatik, and DJ Fakts One are already. So there's no need to get into how tight these Boston cats are. The album itself is very well put together and has guest appearances from Humpty Hump (aka Shock G), Guru, Phonte (of Little Brother), and Camutao. Very few albums...view item »

Parallel Cat
Parallel Cat E.P.

Graaaagh. Whilst I were off B4 Crimbo, the boys were sent this 12" by Parallel Cat which appears to be one of those delightfully strange compilations by loads of unknown folk. So, enigmatic it is, but when faced with the intriguing spill out I've just experienced from the speakers after digging it out from a mountain of promos, I ha...view item »

Decoder Ring
Somersault OST

Somersault is very minimal in execution, beautifully capturing the vulnerability and youthful naivety of the film's star, Heidi, and Decoder Ring have done a wonderful job. Despite the title, one of the most exquisitely lovely tracks here is `Rough Sex', others including `Alpine Way' and the Eno-esque `Electrocution (Hydro mix). It's sometimes t...view item »

Idlewild
Warnings/Promises

Does anyone set out to make an average record? There's two ways of doing it; either release ten or eleven plain and unmemorable songs or create a group of songs that veer back and forth between great to awful. The first actually sounds easiest, but it's the second that we usually get. So how does it happen? Surely if the dross were written first...view item »

Dis*ka
We Only Have Music

Dunno who Dis*ka are but that asterix is gonna fuck off a lot of folk. But not Frank Ferdinand for 'We Only Have Music' is their fave album of the moment according to the man @ the distributor. This is catchy, propulsive retro new wave electro pop squelch, spilling with robotic hooks & euphoric synth mayhem, sinister electro...view item »

The Sights
The Sights

Like a lot of rock bands from Detroit, from the MC5 and The Stooges and down to the White Stripes, The Sights favour loud, hard and fast. This record is a blazing throwback that could have been released in 1968. It would have sounded as good then ...view item »

Phantom Buffalo
Shisimumu

There is a heavy Byrds element in most of the songs, from the jangle (on almost all the tracks) to the use of pedal steel (`Anywhere With Oxygen'). This coupled with frontman Jonathan Balzano-Brookes Fran Healyesque vocals make this a special record indeed. By far my favourite track is Wimp Souffle'. With a sound that's as catchy as chicken pox,...view item »

Stephen Fretwell
Run

Another northerner doing ok for himself is Stephen Fretwell. His recent 10" sold millions apparently. Here's a new single which although the tune is ok, leans rather too far into the middle of the road David Gray, Shack, singer songwriter territory for these tired ears....view item »

Doves
Black & White Town

I quite like Doves but I find them rather boring at the same time. It's a funny old relationship I have with 'em (not that I've ever met them..) I usually find everything I hear by them boring on first listen and within time the tune grows on me. I suspect this is the case with the new single which sounds really very tedious indeed. But ...view item »

Bitmap
Micro/ Macro

'm far too tired to do this after a night out for a mates birthday last night. I am so rubbish with booze... Anyhoo I have to write some stuff for yers. Bitmap are a band I believe and they have a new album out on  Gentle Electric for your disturbination. Lush bedroom pop in an Eric Matthews/ Moles wispy vocals kind of...view item »

Moving Units
Dangerous Dreams

I heard about these guys from them opening for Nine Inch Nails. I figured, hey, Trent has a good ear for musical talent, so how could he go wrong with Moving Units? What an unusual pick, if you ask me. This band seems like a new wave ska band that was somehow transported to the present time from the eighties. Not that that is a bad thing. They hav...view item »

The Beat Up
Black Rays Defence

Alas, I follow that with the Beat Up's debut LP, 'Black Rays Defence' . I played this loud whilst Clint was at the shops buying me the wrong sandwich from the wrong shop (cos he hated the single with a passion) & truth be told, It ain't all that bad. The amped-up primal fuzziness I demand from this blues punk retro gara...view item »

Matt Sharp
Matt Sharp

Matt's solo stuff is a lot different than Weezer and The Rentals. For more instant gratification, head for the Puckett's EP, which is probably a more satisfying first listen. Still, there's some amazing tracks on this album -- I'm especially fond of the opening track, as well as "Thoughts from a slow train." Calling it "sunday morning music" is pro...view item »

Mercury Rev
The Secret Migration

This is music that should be taken on its own merits and not compared with previous Mercury Rev albums. If one can get past the differences between this effort and earlier efforts by Mercury Rev, the high quality of this musical experience will transport the listener to a place of optimism, magic and light. For me, this album evokes more emotion...view item »

David Kitt
Dancing In The Moonlight

David Kitt returns with 'Dancing In the Moonlight' a cover of Thin Lizzy's wretched pile of cack that Toploader ruined everyone's life with. This is inoffensive, pointless & bland but mercifully won't win him the hand of Gail Porter. No longer a...view item »

Adam Green
Gemstones

Adam Green is annoying for several reasons  - mainly the fact that he can't pose for a photo without having his mouth drooping open. Last years magnificent single 'Jessica' was a reason to give him the benefit of the doubt  - a magnificent melodic gem that suggested that Green could be a Neil Diamond for the new milleniu...view item »

The Casanovas
Keep It Hot

Here's a new CD by The Casanovas who really wish they were The Datsuns. You should have hopped on the bandwagon earlier lads and you might have had a minor hit with this grubby slice of 1970's rock. ...view item »

Urban Myth & Steve Beresford
Live At The Friends Meeting House

First up today is a new CD on the esteemed Planet Mu label by Urban Myth & Steve Beresford entitled 'Live At The Friends Meeting House' Now on the surface, this sounds like a load of atmospheric & spooky lo-fi neo-classical gubbins played by a load of pissed mice & their drugged up mo...view item »

Kylian
Lappi Inzoo

New on Toytronic a 12" full to the brim with electronica. Its by Kylian and its as crunchy as putting a load of gravel in your mouth and chewing it. Plenty of tunes a bit like Kettle or anything on AI. It's called Lappi Inzoo ...view item »

Roots Manuva
Colossal Insight

One of UK hip-hop's most revered treasures is Roots Manuva & I'm thrilled to report the cheeky school sports day trophy blagging scamp returns on form with a soulful whirlwind of electronic pop wizardry entitled 'Colossal Insight' It's about as gangsta as Richard Whiteley but infectious, fresh & warmly original all the sam...view item »

Artanker Convoy
Mature Fantasy

Never heard of The Social Registry label B4 but in our box from our lovely US distributor we have a new CD by 'em. First up is by Artanker Convoy. The first track sounds like David Holmes funking up Tortoise which is no bad thang, dude. In fact the whole 4 tracker is on a funky, jazzy post roc...view item »

Earth The Californian Love Dream
Girls Fighting

Earth The Californian Love Dream return with their third single, this on CD only, called 'Girls Fighting' which blends a glammy rock stomp with some QOTSA style flourishes. Unfortunately the end result sounds like a dogfight in a Halifax pub between some bad mullet sporting hair metal tossers. Expect them supporting The Darkn...view item »

The French
Local Information

Seeing as though I've just come back from France I thought I'd review the new French album called Local Information. That and the fact that the boys got lumbered with the last 2 releases so it seemed fair that I had my two pennies worth. If you don't know by now it's that sodding fella from Hefner. This is ...view item »
