Locust Toybox
Powdered Brethrens EP

Here is a CD by Locust Toybox. The similarity though is that both artists have undoubtedly been listening to Aphex Twin. This time the chirpy upbeat 'Richard D James' album springs to mind. Lots of skittery beats and  tuneful upbeat electronics. We all enjoyed this one a lot. Its the kind of record that makes everything in ...view item »

The Kull
Tic Tac Toe

Remember Earth The Californian Love Dream? Those bright sparks at Random Records (The label who's fault it was...) have seen fit to launch another 'The' band on us this week. The Kull are here to kull us with their wicked musicianry, songwriting and other such skills involved in being in a band and making records. It's l...view item »

Lucky Pierre & Notes
I Hate T Shirts

Lucky Pierre and Notes 12" picture disc and CD on Melodic. Lucky Pierre has gone a bit disco and it reminds me of the Hart To Hart theme tune jazzed up. Nice strings...... The rapping on the lead track is done by Notes apparently. The packaging is totally inspired as it looks like a CDR to the tee. Even t...view item »

Bauri/ Novel 23
Split

Also on the same label is a Bauri/ Novel 23. Again more quality and this is yr regulation decent electronica you've come to expect from the label and the artists themselves. Bauri winning hands down with a killer track. Lovely....view item »

Pellumair
Summer Storm

Pellumair. What a crap name. They sound like a dreamy Aussie indie band, rather wistful & passionate. Sodastream have been barked at me by my two growling rottweiler colleagues so, shaking in my keks as I am, I'll say that shall I? On Rough trade records CD only....view item »

Parisman
A Place that Glows

There is a new CD's/7" out on Leeds label 48 Crash. Its by Parisman. I'm sure someone has used that name before though I may well be thinking of the Paris Angels. Anyway this is ethereal rock music that hints at  U2,  Hope of the States, Doves and anyone else with anthemic songs and layers of guitar ef...view item »

Mando Diao
Down In The Past

Similar to Kasabian, Mando Diao has proclaimed that their music is just as good if not better than anyone they have drawn their influences from. While some might see this as pretentious, such as I, it actually really really works for them. Without that type of attitude, I'm not entirely sure that they could have made their albums as good as they ar...view item »

Hell
Grobenwahn (Best of)

I have to give Hell a lot of credit for invigorating the German techno scene with a good bit of hardness. However, with Grohenwahn 1992-2005, I lost a good amount of respect for him from the very first track, "Definition of House." Why? Because the track is completely plagiarized from the A. R. Kane remix of David Byrne's "Forestry," with some a...view item »

Ian Beef/ Alan Lamb
Spit Roast

Ian Beef and Alan Lamb are both meat obsessed. There's meat in the song titles, their names and you'd be hoping for a free steak with each copy... alas not.... Daft meat obsessed words over some light hip hop scratchy type gear and not a million miles away from Kid Acne, Pitman and Goldie Lookin' Chain. On 7" an...view item »

Hoggboy
400 Boys

Hoggboy are back as well... Wow with the return of all these great bands you're really spoiling us Mr Ambassador (say in slightly sarcastic Spanish voice...). Apparently this is the theme to some film released next year called 400 Boys.....mmm. This rocks in a glam kind of way. Think of Placebo doing 20th Century Boy and th...view item »

Tribes of Neurot
Meidian

When the five members of Neurosis aren't cranking out their usual pummeling prog-sludge output, they're either doing rather interesting psychedelic folk records (like Scott Kelly on his own or Steve Von Till's Harvestman), or they're creating experimental material as the ambitious side-project, the mysterious Tribes of Neurot. To explain Meridia...view item »

Neotropic
White Rabbits

For her fourth album, Neotropic moves to the under-the-radar, but excellent, American label Mush. With "New Cross," she drifts into a quiet space, emphasising the folk elements, with a touch of rhythm to ground it. "Inch Inch" picks up the pace some, making the drum patterns more noticeable, though it disintegrates halfway through into an ambian...view item »

Amsterdam
Takin' On the World

I love Amsterdam. It's one of my favourite cities. I've lost count how many times I've been. I've always had some great times and last time I was there I was off my trolley in the red light district with the wife.... ah great great memories. I've just realised I painted a 'Brit abroad' picture of myself but I'm really rather timid and wouldn't ...view item »

Tussle
Kling Klang

Reminiscent of the junkyard percussion of Liquid Liquid, the reverby textural guitar builds of Do Make Say Think, and the organic dance beats and handclaps of LCD Soundsystem and !!!, Tussle creates i...view item »

Brakes (British Sea Power)
Ring A Ding Ding

Brand new 7" and CDs by The Brakes on Rough Trade called Ring A Ding Ding which at first I thought was dreadful but after a few listens it really gets under your skin. Think somewhere between the stompin' tunes of Roxy Music and early Pixies. Am reasonably impressed.... The B sides (On the CD) are all covers tho...view item »

Desert City Soundtrack
Perfect Addiction

Pensive, melancholic, and grey, Desert City Soundtrack's slow brewing piano-led rock will cause you to go into hiding from human contact. Well, there's definitely nothing wrong with escaping life to spend a little alone time with your troubled thoughts. Perfect Addiction is definitely a choice soundtrack for that contemplative mind. With a name ...view item »

The Life And Times
Suburban Hymns

We really liked this new CD by The Life and Times. This is fantastically produced blast of noisy pop music with nods to Idaho, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Dismemberment Plan. The kind of swirling almost anthemic breed of emo-ish  rock music that at best recalls a more noisy Mew and Death Cab for Cutie and at wors...view item »

Rosie Thomas
Pretty Dress

"Pretty Dress" is the single by Rosie Thomas taken from her 2005 album, "If Songs Can Be Held". It starts with her doing an impression of Tori Amos, for some reason, not that I have anything against Tori Amos, I just don't understand why Rosie Thomas would copy her so obviously. The voice, the melody and the piano...view item »

The Dead 60's
The Dead 60's

The Dead 60's are one of those bands I were convinced were gonna be huge but maybe I'm totally deaf. The 1st 2 singles should have been tearing up the airwaves on every radio in the land, being a scintillating blend of the Clash & the Specials compressed into a tidy ball for consumption in these fast moving disposable ages. So...view item »

Tracy & The Plastics
Culture For Pigeon

Wasn't at all sure what to expect from a Tracy & The Plastics album. Was expecting screechy electro-kitch & petulant fem-angst set to grrrrrrl aggro rhythms! But instead I get an incredibly intriguing blend of minimal electronics, wired tribalism & wonderful organ, squiggly stripped-down dancehall & pulsing electro bass. ...view item »

Doves
Sky Starts Falling

Doves have a new single out. You've heard one Doves single and you've heard 'em all. They've lost some of that sparkle and magic for me though you crazy folks still buy 'em in their droves. This is a bit more raucous for them and they sound less like a bunch of pussies than they normally do. Good on them I say....view item »

The Bravery
Unconditional

Has anyone seen The Bravery? What a bunch of panda bear eyed, Morrissey quiffed MUPPETS. Debut single 'Unconditional' has been re-issued. Big fat hairy deal as fat ginger cartoon cat Garfield used to quip. I really couldn't care less if this band spontaneously combusted on stage or something. I'm tired of all these hopeles...view item »

August Born
August Born

OK then. Obscure stuff courtesy of Drag City comes in the form of August Born who is Ben Chasny (Six Organs Of Admittance) and Hiroyuki Usui (no idea as I wasn't paying attention to the sales notes...). Here we have some pretty serious psyche folk. I could waffle on about it for a while but you probably wouldn...view item »

The Chicharones
When Pigs Fly

The Chicharones is Sleep of Oldominion and Josh Martinez. Both very talented artists that are well known among the underground hip-hop scene. This record from start to end will keep you entertained and the lyrics will give you goosebumps. This is a must buy for true underground hip-hop fans. Check out the other album's by Josh Martinez (Buck up Pri...view item »

Greenhouse Effect
Columbus or Bust

We need more artists like this that constantly put out classic albums rather than letting their style morph into what they think will bring them more cash money. It is so funny when I talk to people and ask if they have heard any Blueprint albums and they always say "Oh you mean the Jay-Z album" (also called Blueprint) and I sadly shake my head. If...view item »

Kid606
Resilience

New CD and double vinyl in on Wichita by none other than Kid 606. Boy does the kid get about, he's been on more labels than erm, prices or something else you get a lot of on labels. 12 Tracks in all and pretty decent it is too. There's a definite dub/reggae influence on some of these tracks, melodic electronics and general nicene...view item »

Louis XIV
The Best Little Secrets Are Kept

When a band is named after the Sun King, you'd expect a less than humble approach. But these guys don't seem to consider themselves the next best thing to God, just a rough-edged, sexy garage band. Some songs end with murmured conversations, random strums and footsteps. It sounds like they forgot to turn the mic off -- and that lack of polish and p...view item »

Lesser
Gearhound

Former label mates and pals Matmos and Kid606 may get to tour with Bjork and be on the cover of magazines, but Lesser's the one in their crew with truly talented digiscrewizardy, and a genuine sense of humor. Forget all those other dull pretenders and stiff-lipped eyes-down laptop geeks that have decided they're going to ride the (nonexistant) "gli...view item »

Leaves
The Angela Test

Leaves, a five-piece band that is labeled tear-jerking and worth the experience. The title track will fail at having you find a more upbeat energetic song, because the song has a more Beach Boys meets Doves feel that will get you wondering if you are listening to a polar opposite of Muse's Absolution right in the middle. Additionally, bits and piec...view item »

The Electric Soft Parade
Holes In The Wall

This is one of the better, if not the best, post-Britpop albums. I was never a fan of Britpop but bands like The Electric Soft Parade (AKA Alex and Thomas White), purposefully or otherwise, were riding its coat-tails when this was released in 2002. Due to their penchant for a catchy melody, there&rs...view item »

Marbles
Expo

Rob Schneider can do it all, and he seems to be determined to. As well as fronting psych-pop band the Apples In Stereo, Schneider has also managed to perform solo in two side bands. One is the ultrastark Ulyssess, while the other is whimsical odds-and-ends band the Marbles....view item »

Tramp Attack, Hokum Clones, Various
21st Liverpool Unearthed

For all you lovers of all music scouse then there's a top comp of new-ish tunes called 21st Century Liverpool Underground on Viper featuring a number of tracks by The Big Kids, The Hokum Clones and Tramp Attack. 18 tracks in total by all 3 bands and Double Decker Bus by Tramp Attack is superb. Not really heard much b...view item »

Wellwater Conspiracy
Wellwater Conspiracy

I generally like music that is in the but I'm not sure what this is. The vocals are not clean enough. Either the singer is not very strong or there is too much emphasis on effects. Either way, the vocals strike me wrong. I also think the music is all over the place. There's definitely some interesting songs and quality music, but it seems to lac...view item »

The Stands
Horse Fabulous

I'd previously heard of The Stands before but never took much notice of them, needless to say after hearing five tracks one of them being their single "When the night falls in" I found myself looking into their sophomore effort, Horse Fabulous. The Stands aren't just another group from Liverpool. Each song is unique, and each song has a lot of meat...view item »

Racebannon
First There Was The Emptiness

Racebannon have the ability to combine different stylings of music to create aggression, angst and dark energy all at the same time; what's more I must add that I enjoy how far back in the mix the vocals have been put giving it a 'poor production punk feel'...which works amazingly. However, Tracks like "Yr test scores don't speak for themselves" s...view item »

Tetrix
Tetirx

Right that does it. My gaffer has been enthusing over downloading odd tracks by more obscure artists in an attempt to unearth some exclusive magnificence we can all roll around in smugly & say we were first in the world to stock it. So he comes in & proudly pulls his latest discovery from Belgium out of a box  & goes "fuck...view item »

The Peppermints
Jesus Chryst

Oh I like some twangy lo-fi voodoo scuzz rock I do. The Peppermints seem to have got that particular avenue sewn up actually. The good book burning sentiments of 'Jesus Chryst' amuse but not as much as a track called 'Rabid Frogs'. This is psychotic stuff indeed. The kind of discordant, muffled primal shit that the US underground thrives...view item »

S.E.V.A. (Mumbles)
S.E.V.A. (Mumbles)

This third eye opening gem was discovered completely by accident and quickly became one of my favourite albums in 2005. I still pull it out of collection and listen to it on occasion. The vocal tracks are unfortunately kind of awful, but are short and can easily be deleted from a digital set of the tracks. Regardless of these minor speed-bumps on t...view item »

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 »

The Bandits
And They Walked Away

The Bandits on B-Unique are another new band from Liverpool and they've got that Liverpool sound which seems to be doing the rounds currently. More honest to goodness indie rock. The vocal melodies remind me of the La's though it doesn't sound like them. Much rockier and garageylike. And ...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 »

Crooked Fingers
Dignity & Shame

Crooked Fingers are led by Eric Bachmann from classic North American indie band Archers of Loaf. Their music is quite different from anything Archers of Loaf did, generally strummy, acoustic guitar-led melodic indie pop. “Dignity & Shame” opens with a mar...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 »

Fred Schneider
Just Fred

This is an exciting, highly entertaining and beautifully produced (Steve Albini) powerhouse of a slam dance album. Fred delivers at 100% throughout. The opener "Whip" will have you hooked and the first half of the album is particularly strong. You really wouldn't know that Fred works with several different backing bands here - it's produced to s...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 »
