The Buddy System
Application

And finally from for the week there's the debut CD album by The Buddy System on U Cover recs called Application. You may remember them having a track on a split single on Awkward Silence. This is interesting electronica with some very good bits in but also a fair few noodly bits in. Well worth a listen ...view item »

Yuppie Flu
Food For The Ants

Yuppie Flu have a new single out on Homesleep and it's unmistakably them. They do the whole catchy Pavement(y) pop as good as the next Joe Schmo. Another fine example of how to make decent indie guitar tunes. Food For The Ants is CD only tigers.......view item »

Hillyer
Dancing Pig Song

Dancing Pig Song by Hillyer. This is crazy fucked up noise featuring cows, trumpets, chainsaw's and wind turbines. File under: avant garde noise. Limited to 100 copies on 3" CD. For fans of VVM, scraping noises., etc........view item »

Sammo Hung
Stand Up & Swear

Brian really likes  the new Sammo Hung CD on No Danger but he's too busy tapping away on his keyboard over there to write anything so his words are coming through me....I hear the words Yeah Yeah Yeah's. ....Pretty Girls Make Graves....and Siouxie and the Banshees....hope that help...view item »

Gerard Collier
Breakin' Down

Gerald Collier is simply a great singer-songwriter. His lyrics are just as brutally honest as they get - very disturbing actually. A line like, "I was up thinking to myself last night/ how much better I'd be if I'd have shot her on sight/ how much warmer I'd be between my sheets/ with the blood of her body washed all over me", really separates itse...view item »

The Gay
You Know The Rules

What happens when you put together folks from Maow, Superconductor, Vancouver Nights, The Tennessee Twin, Kreviss, and others? You get The Gay, a five-piece co-ed fun-pop outfit high on harmonies and bliss (and probably drugs too); especially as the band features an accordion (and someone playing it) Produced and re...view item »

Bizz Circuits
The Very Best Of..

The Very Best Of.. boasts a humongous list of musical artists -- although you have to wonder how many of them truly influenced this collection. Certainly, the minimalists and the microtonal experimentalists show their hand here (listen to the cool bleeps and dub beats on "Gilles Deleuze Meets Rockers Downtown" or the slow, skittering percussion on ...view item »

Black Nielson
The Human Strain

Black Nielson also have a dead limited release, this time a 3" CD on Oxford's Truck label. Limited to 250 & mail order only. Here's 4 tracks of swirling, anthemic indie & dreamy acoustic introspection which I think Truck do best. Think along the lines of Goldrush & the like. Track 4...view item »

Kruton
World Of Bauxite

12" by Kruton. It has drums on it and wibbly sounds.The drums are playing a fairly regimented beat, very well disciplined. The wibbly bits are also well disciplined. They haven't made an audible error yet and we're about 3 and a half minutes in. On the second track the drums are more staccato and are joined ...view item »

The 55's
Before The Judge Turned Us To Shadow

The 55's are a new band from Scotland I think.  Anyway they have quite a lively 4 track CD out which recalls bits of The Clash and the singer sounds not unlike Johnny Rotten on the first track. Catchy punky pop with harmonies, maybe a bit like Idlewild or an REM that never esc...view item »

Skanfrom
Hand Picked Fragments

In on Suction is a new Skanfrom LP which is a hybrid of Kraftwerk/ Boards Of Canada with a vulgar 80's pop twist. Bits sound like early Depeche Mode (the music that is) and it's all very melodic but I can't do with the 80's sounds. Hand Picked Fragments is all very tuneful and probably ...view item »

The Speaking Canaries
Get Out Alive The Last Type Short

The Speaking Canaries are a steel city supergroup, boasting members of the best bands from the 90's indie circuit. Their songwriting has taken such a huge leap forward from Songs for the Terrestrially Challenged that at times it doesn't even sound like the same band. Whereas the former spends a lot of time showcasing musical chops, "Get Out Aliv...view item »

Total Shutdown
The Album

Total Shutdown. Bet  you've never heard of 'em? They're on Tigerbeat 6 and Load Records. This particular release is on Tigerbeat 6 (as it's a CD) and the vinyl comes out on the fucking noisy Load label. This is mental type thrash metal gear in yr Extreme Noise Terror vein. O...view item »

The Singles
Better Than Before

More Detroit rockers with a certain Livepudlian fixation. But don't mistake The Singles for The Forty-Fives or The Sights, even though they share a producer in Detroit 'scenester' Jim Diamond. This motor-city four-piece stand out by imagining garage rock as being solely inspired by the George songs on the early Beatles albums. It is hardly impor...view item »

E*Rock
Conscious

After being turned on to Portland's Audio Dregs label, I had to check this guy out. Meet Eric Mast aka E-rock, older brother of Evan Mast aka E-vax who you may know as one half of the popular electronic rock duo, Ratatat (lord only knows what those guys are doing these days). It took me a...view item »

Funeral For A Friend
She Drove Me To Daytime Television

Funeral For A Friend... new single on Infectious... 2 CD's and a 7". Kind of Emo ish. Don't do it for me but it sounds pretty polished and probably right up someone's street. Am just not young or spotty enough.... She Drove Me To Daytime Television is out now released on a plethora of formats..... ...view item »

Bugz In The Attic
Fabriclive 12

Hands down, this Bugz collection has to be one of the nicest mixes I've heard in a long time. When you put the chilled breakbeats, percussive rap, house, and funked up remixes together the flow is unbelievable. Some of the standout tracks are "Focus - Having your Fun", "Seiji ft. Lyric L - Loose Lips", and the re-edit of "N'dambi's - Call Me". T...view item »

Children's Hour
SOS JFK

More niceness from The Childrens Hour on Rough Trade. A lady singing, just guitar and a few assorted odds and ends. Very quiet..... Sos Jerk is CD only...view item »

Jetplane Landing
Calculate The Risk

Jetplane Landing return with a shouty , noisy CD single called 'Calculate The Risk'. I remember these guys sounding like Pavement but these days they're a lot tauter & rockier, like they've been listening to Fugazi or summat. Jolly fine stuff chaps!...view item »

Tim Burgess
I Believe

Tim Burgess is the man from The Charlatans who is now an American. He's teamed up with Linus From Hollywood (made a couple of average power pop records a few years ago). This record soaks up the California west coast vibe even going as far as to employ pony tailed coke addled session  musicians....view item »

DJ Broken Window
Parallel Universe #2

Who loved that last DJ Brokenwindow  CD, 'Parallel Universe'? Well we have Volume 2 in now! A most intriguing collection of layered and mixed hip hop, funk, eighties electro/pop with splashes of jazz & easy listening & allsorts! It even explains how he did it all in the inlay! It looks a right pain in...view item »

The Grim Northern Social
Urban Pressure

Grim Northern Social have a fair enough stadium indie tune out on One Little Indian this week called 'Urban Pressure' which sounds like a cross between prime time Pulp & The Verve or summat. No prizes for originality but it's a well crafted song with a bit of character. Awful na...view item »

Bitmap
Alpha Beta Gamma

Sometimes we're a bit slow at the towers. Yep we're honest as the day is long as well. A CD will come in and will sell like crazy yet it has slipped us by. A good example is the Bitmap which has been selling in droves. Its a guy from Salako and a collaborator of Fonda 500 apparently. I thought this...view item »

Mikrofisch
Gleichstrom Wechelstrom

Next on Keplar a funny CD by Mikrofisch. This is fairly impressive also but falls somewhere towards the Kanda bracket of girl boy tweeness and guitars mixed with electronics into an unfathomable pie. They do covers of that old timer Morrissey. I'm not a musical snob (are you sure? -Fats...view item »

Viza-Noir
No Record

First up Viza Noir. We have a full length and a CDEP by this group. They provide us with an excellent brand of post-hardcore, tight, angular catchy rock. Hints of Q and not U and Paper Chase but with the sleight of hand of an Interpol or a (insert post rock type band like Unwed Sailor or ...view item »

Ancient Greeks
The Song Is You

Ancient Greeks. Cue man with high voice singing jazz tinged opus's in the manner of Sea and Cake dilly dallying with Brit hopefuls Athlete. (Brian's comparison not mine). The Song Is You is on CD and LP...view item »

Various
Brutal Police Menace

Now for a load of NOISE! Firstly, I'll tell you about the Brooklyn Beats compilation, 'Brutal Police Menace' which is a project reacting to the more inhuman, renegade elements of the NYPD. Compelling, intriguing and quite possibly insane, this is breakcore & experimMENTAL electronics NY style. Includes Net...view item »

Fruit Bats
Mouthfuls

Fruit Bats released the gloriously melodic folk rock album “Mouthfuls” in 2003. Eric D. Johnson’s nasal voice is reminiscent of antipodean acts such as Tall Drawfs and Grant McLennan of The Go-Betweens. “Rainbo...view item »

Paradise Island
Lines Are Indefinitely Fine

Paradise Island is Jenny from Erase Errata. This is her side project,.'Lines Are Infinitely Fine' is her lp & it sounds like mesmerising lo-fi electro folk noise to me. It's really nice to see where a superb band like EE get a quarter of thier ideas from & I can see where the inspiration...view item »

Ash
Goldfinger

When I was teenager and britpop was riding high, 1977 by Ash was one of those must-have albums. It was full of classic hits, like Girl From Mars, Oh Yeah and Angel Interceptor. Goldfinger was the best though, full of teen angst and future hopes - a timeless classic that takes me back everytime I hear it. The song itself to me is abour being lock...view item »

Tahiti 80
Wallpaper For The Soul

I've always considered Tahiti 80 to be a kind soft power pop band. Brilliant songs like “Hey Joe” from their “Puzzle” LP certainly fit into that category. “Wallpaper For The Soul” is the follow-up to “Puzzle” and after the first couple of tracks I didn’t really...view item »

Cabrini
Show Offs Get Hurt

Lastly back to the increasingly fine Red Square, who bring forth a CD by Cabrini, entitled 'Show offs get hurt' More lovely old skool indie of The Go-Between's/Field Mice variety. Not as twee as expected but still as pretty as you like. 11 tracks of cheery, summery pop to brighten up thos...view item »

The Tall Boy
Goes On

555/Red Square Records of wherever it is the boy Anderson has settled himself and wife Jen (Flagstaff, Arizona!) have a batch of lovely new CDs ready for sale from the good ship Norman! Firstly Red Square release The Tall Boy's 'Goes On' long player which combines pretty summery pop with ...view item »

Papa November
From The Start Line

Papa November seems to be fairly poor trip hop lite and something resembling a bad version of the last Goldfrapp album. From The Start Line is CD only on Bearos....view item »

You Am I
'No After You Sir..' An Introduction To -

If you're going to put time and effort into becoming a fan, 'No, After You Sir...' really is the place to start. This is a fine collection of You Am I's songs, and a pretty good representation of what they are about. The only complaints I can offer are that the song 'Damage' is missing (a truly beautiful song) and that the band's first album "So...view item »

Mos Eisley
The Get Up Set

Mos Eisley sounds like a rapper but it's an indie tune of the quality Byrds/60s variety so it must be a band. The get Up Set is chocca full of great tunes and pop hits and Id like to think they'd get quite popular but it's just not gonna happen.... shame! It's CD only on Beautiful Pigeon Records and it's wel...view item »

Royal City
Alone At The Microphone

This is a Canadian indie-folk group with some very catchy songs and occasionally morbid and interesting lyrics - the guitar and banjo are prevalent - the songs are familiar sounding yet original - the vocalist doesn't have the prettiest voice, it's rather flat sounding actually, but he carries off the songs well with a grace and deadpan type of hum...view item »

S Prcss
MMNL

S Process is reminiscent of that late 70s art-punk sound but they aren't trying to be Wire or Gang of Four, they definitely have their own sound. S Process KNOWS how to incorporate the disco/synth stuff, unlike the Gang of Four. Riffs, beats, lines and vocals are all hot, simultaneously stimulating your brain and your feet. The production on this a...view item »

Radio Vago
Black & White Photo Enterpirse

More cool Yank rock in this week with a mini album by the badly monikered Radio Vago who look terrible, have a sulky looking girl singer who sounds like Hazel O'Connor and the music is strange new wave rock. Think Siouxie & The Banshees crossed with Toyah having bricks hurled a...view item »

Various
Channel 2

Another well good CD sampler in this week is the 2nd Output records 'Channel' comp. The Output roster is even more trendy & cool these days (Not that we give a cats arse about being cool! Leave that to the mullet headed idiots erm...elsewhere!) so you get the likes of LCD Soundsystem, The...view item »

Kumo And Friends
Later Than You Think

Kumo and Friends, limited 12" on Electric Tones. Bangy drummy stuff. No idea how to descibe this so I won't bother. Later Than You Think is limited to 300 and numbered....view item »

Vero
Preghiere

Another Disasters By Choice release is by Vero. Title of this is 'Preghiere' and conjures up images of a sleepy Red Snapper being fed through a stuttering laptop full of small, furry mammals. Once again. this is dead pretty with nice trumpet and double bass splashes, a spot of piano and a soupco...view item »

Martin Grech
Push

Martin Grech the feller who scored that hit last year on the car advert has a new single out a big label.Hmm. Its ok-ish grand progressive rock with nods towards Radiohead and erm everyone who sounds like Radiohead. The B side finds him wailing away over big swarthes of synthy sounds then...view item »

The Faint
Danse Macabre

Unfortunately the bubble has burst because along from the 80's have stumbled The Faint. Again the NME are banging on about these. They sound like they've emerged from a Gary Numan B-side circa 1985 (just as his fame was fading). Features lots of horrible squelchy 80's noises. The first song isn'...view item »

Hell Is For Heroes
You Drove Me To It

Hell is for Heroes are a band who could be great if they didn't sound so baz nu-metal half the time. Well accomplished tunes wiv loads of energy. Symposium fans can be smug that members of that band are making a far more distracting racket in HIFH than in that previous dodgy indie band. Still la...view item »

Mum And Dad
Easy Peasy

Mum and Dad have a new CDs/7" out on Twisted Nerve. Its loads more listenable and enjoyable than anything I've heard by them before. Usually they scare me rigid. Its strange trippy pop with a dark sinister edge. Easy Peasy it be called... Wa-hey!!!...view item »

The Jeevas
Ghost

The Jeevas are a band that have one scuzzy, mucky and dark skeleton in their line up closet. Most folks are already aware of this ghoulish nightmare that goes by the name of Crispin Mills. I mean, what the fuck were Kula Shater all about then? Called 'Ghost; this is marginally more bearable yet ...view item »

Venue
Mmhm!

If you enjoy the music of the British invasion you'll love Venue. Combining Beatlesque harmonies, thrashing guitar riffs reminiscent of the Kinks, and beats from the Keith Moon School of Drumming, this brotherly band manages to create their own new sound that sounds old (if that makes sense). From the slightly surf sounding title track, "Mmhm!" ...view item »

Denzel And Huhn
Time Is A Good Thing

Denzel And Huhn are on City Centre Offices (not to mixed up with Dalziel and Pascoe rom the famous TV program) and they have a new album out of bleepy electronica. Mainly ambient and floaty tracks which are all minimal sounding. It's a very bleak sparse sounding album of experimental electronica...view item »

Truck Festival 2002- Major Trucking Incident

First up we have a Truck CD and program which was a festival victim of our Lord's Floods. Its got some kool bands on like Brian Jonestown Massacre, Pull Tiger Tail and Euros Childs and then other bands like Idlewild. 19 tracks of festivals fun that happened promoters imaginations and were just halted by the rains....shame shame.....view item »

Swayzak
Dirty Dancing

Sometimes thing are really hard to label, Swayzak is hard to label, it's not techno, it's certainly not house, it's not ambient, it's not electro it's whatever. It is however very minimal clear cut tech, with a hint of electro (80's) and even goth (track #3). I have to be honest, I never was a big Swayzak fan but this album it just excellent, ev...view item »
