Cantaloupe
Splish / Wet Dog

My hometown of Nottingham occasionally knocks out a great band and Cantaloupe are definitely one of those, mixing synth-pop, kraut, electro, post-rock with great results, ‘Splish/Wet Dog’ is a superb catchy plonkathon of a single out on Hello Thor Records on 12” vinyl and digital download, Can...view item »

Gauntlet Hair
Stills

Denver Duo Craig Nice and Andy Rauworth aka Gauntlet Hair release their second studio album for the Dead Oceans label. It seems the pair have dispelled the myth of the “difficult” second album, ‘Stills’ is a massive leap forward in terms o...view item »

Paula
Relaxed Fit

Picked this one up as the sleeve is fully vibing and I get the impression they’ll be blissful Cyndi Lauper-esque ‘80s pop gems nestled comfortably in the grooves. I might be wrong but here goes... Yeah, I was a bit wrong about that but this is sounding cool. Super lo-fi poppy oddness is definitely the order of the day. It kin...view item »

Part Time
PDA

I was rather taken by Part Time’s previous album ‘What Would You Say’, which presented a kind of modern bedroom take on classic uplifting ‘80s soft pop and yet somehow avoided the cloying and cheesy pitfalls thanks to a great ear for a hook and some well chosen chord changes. Now he...view item »

Diamond Terrifier
The Subtle Body Wears A Shadow

Diamond Terrifier aka Sam Hillmer here with his latest effort on Terrible Records. DJ, artist, curator, Sam it seems is a man of many talents and here we see him living in a world where the saxophone isn’t just an instrument but a completely new way of thinking and creating music that exists bey...view item »

17 Pygmies
Isabel

Interesting how these four lads from Liverpool manage to capture the essence of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Tom Jones and Nancy Sinatra simultaneously while playing the sitar. Fooking amazing!...view item »

Fair Ohs
Jungle Cats

Despite being quite good at the information thing, the internet doesn’t tell you everything. Its just taken me 10 minutes to try to find out where this raucous band are from. Why in ears' sake do I need to know? Does it matter? Well, the fact that they are from the grimy street of England's London headquarters provides just the fai...view item »

TE Morris
And You Were The Hunter

And You Were the Hunter is the debut album from TE Morris. Tom (TE) Morris is the front man of Her Name Is Calla and although relatively new to releasing solo material, he has already amassed a healthy back catalogue of 5 self-released EP’s and one full length over the course of the last 18 months. 'And You Were The Hunter' sees...view item »

Corporal Machine And The Bombers
Richard Feaver In Goal

One in and gone! Corporal Machine And The Bombers first and last hit 'Richard Feaver In Goal' scores! Sadly it also marks the band's hiatus before splitting up. Essex finest sons Euan, Matt, David, Liam, Tony, Sean’s street punk is now available on vinyl! And it even manages to capture some of the raw, scruf...view item »

The Music Tapes
Mary's Voice

You will note our new reviewing system where we now have marks out of ten. This is a good thing for picky reviewers such as myself. A large percentage of records get lumped into the four-out-of-five region and as you can imagine there is a huge difference in quality between them. Take this Music Tape...view item »

Fat History Month
Bad History Month

Here’s the latest LP from are-they-serious?/aren’t-they-serious? indie rockers Fat History Month, who peddle a style of slightly folk-influenced indie rock which will remind you of Three Mile Pilot, Archers of Loaf ...view item »

Jesse Ruins
A Film

Romantic and wide-eyed electronica gets breathed in and out in A Film, the debut record from trio Jesse Ruins who have expanded from their origins, incorporating stunning shoegaze inclinations. There are even drums. The sound of a quietened IDM record getting thrown into the wide open. ...view item »

Chester Endersby Gwazda
Shroud

Chester Endersby Gwazda is a new name to me but he’s a household name back in his native Baltimore, with a history of performing with and producing records for all the Wham City elite as well as touring with the likes of Dan Deacon. On &ls...view item »

Pan Aurora
Fragment#6

Another part of our Monopsone - Fragments triple bill (see also Darko and The Declining Winter), here are Pan Aurora whose sound is a very European style electronic pop which sits ...view item »

Spanish Dance Troupe
La Muerte Del Amor En Andalucia

Spanish Dance Troupe (named after an album by Welsh rockers Gorky's Zygotic Mynci) is the alter-ego of half-south American, half-Japanese musician Ricardo. Now residing in Cardiff, Ricardo has, as you would expect, picked up a lot of international flavours. La Muerte Del Amor En Andalucia is a conc...view item »

Ignatz
Can I Go Home Now

Named after a violent brick-throwing mouse in the comic Krazy Katz, Ignatz is the alter-ego of Belgian acoustic singer-songwriter and artist Bram Devens. Can I Go Home Now is his fifth home-recorded album (the previous four being self-released). Acoustic, effect-driven songs recorded on a four-track and computer. On vin...view item »

Sonny & The Sunsets
Antenna To The Afterworld

Restless soul Sonny Smith is back with another outing for Polyvinyl. Antenna To The Afterworld chronicles the writer’s time spent reflecting on the afterlife - from the perspective of alien visiting earth. This is charmingly homespun stuff as usual, but with added flashes of colour and odd...view item »

Ralfe Band
Son Be Wise

Ralfe Band’s warm and evocative soundtrack to quirky Boosh-related surreal comedy ‘Bunny & The Bull’ was my introduction to the band and still gets pretty regular spins at my house, although I’m sorry...view item »

The Occasional Orchestra
22 Arches

Ex Home and Abroad frontman Darrell Mitchell's current ensemble The Occasional Orchestra release their third album '22 Arches' on Big Untidy records. Indie folk with an array of unusual stringed instruments, expertly handled by guitarist Jon Taylor. A vinyl release is in the offing, allegedly. Get the CD here now though. ...view item »

Muuy Biien
This Is What Your Mind Imagines

I thought Happy Happy Birthday To Me pretty much exclusively dealt in upbeat and sometimes twee indie pop business, so imagine my surprise when I bung this Muuy Biien LP on the stereo to discover that actually this lot specialise in &lsq...view item »

GRMLN
Empire

More fuzzy guitar pop music, certainly more in a 90s style. You’d think from the sleeve that this was some kind of synth/horror music. If that’s what you want then you will be disappointed by that flat out West Coast punk pop on show. It’s as commercial as a clown's red nose. ‘Hand Pistol’ recalls ...view item »

Noah And The Whale
Heart Of Nowhere

I tend to hate it when bands change their sound too dramatically from when I first fell in love with them. Noah and the Whale have definitely changed, but in a way that still reflects all the aspects for which I first came to be a fan. This album is like a perfect blend of the others, though definitely resonating more with The First Days of Spri...view item »

Coyote Clean Up
2 Hot 2 Wait

I used to listen to SiriusXM's "Chill" channel a lot, and "Awesome Luv" popped up. I liked it enough to sit in the parking lot until it finished, and wrote down the name of the artist. Going online, I was happy to discover that this entire album is excellent deep house, with complex textures and very danceable rhythms, which did not become tirin...view item »

The Pigeon Detectives
We Met At Sea

Leeds quintet The Pigeon Detectives are back with their fourth studio album: We Met At Sea. This record sees the band go back to basics, in a search for the simple indie sound that defined their earlier success. An upbeat sound paves the way on this record; it sees the popular noughties band reach new heights. ...view item »

Lansing-Dreiden
The Incomplete Triangle

I love this group, and I say "group" loosely because they're not really a band. It's a striking album that's both metal and shoegaze-ish and Latin Miami Freestyle. If all these styles have came across your path in the past years and you've dug it, check this out. The Incomplete Triangle is not entirely original, but that's obviously on purpose. ...view item »

Lansing-Dreiden
A Sectioned Beam

In theory, it's a good idea -- mixing bits of metal, dreampop, space-rock and one driving guitar. But Lansing-Dreiden never lives up to its promise in "Sectioned Beam." It feels like a good experimental album that hasn't decided if it wants to be the Beach Boys or a quirky ambient-pop group. This offbeat musical collective sounds like a...view item »

Animal City
See You In The Funny Pages

As well as getting copies of the first Giving Up album and the ace new 7” of blazing garage pop from Last Year’s Men, this week Sophomore Lounge have sent us this varied album of indie pop from Chicago qu...view item »

Solyst
Lead

Thomas Klein, as well as being the drummer in the excellent Kreidler, is the main man in Solyst and must still dine out on the fact that he got awarded our coveted Album of the Week with his previous self titled offering. From the looks of things this album carries on from where the last one left off. Natura...view item »

Rich Ristagno
What Would It Be Like To Be Rich

This guy is totally rockin’ a strong moustache and mullet combo in the photo on the inner sleeve. This record was an autobiographical concept album recorded in 1981 in from a Detroit ex-garage-rocker-cum-accidental-no-wave-tourist. The record just oozes an extremely endearing non-pretentious, humble almost naive vibe. Not a single ...view item »

Red Stars Over Tokyo
Crossing A Frozen Sea

Here’s a 12” single which is longer than most albums, featuring an “extended all night version” of Red Stars Over Tokyo’s ‘Crossing A Frozen Sea’ on one side, and a 20-plus minute remix by the German collective Magazine...view item »

Vulgar Fashion
Vulgar Fashion

Ok, outta Denton, Texas (home of Havergal!), I have no idea who these people are. If that is them on their facebook page then they look kind of like Peaking Lights gone feral. They produce a dirty, gritty, grimy electronic dirgey stew full of terrifying synths, one part ...view item »

Young Galaxy
Ultramarine

Earlier this week I was temporarily put in charge of a child. Amazingly I got through the whole 30 seconds unscathed and didn’t manage to make any mistakes. I think I’ve finally grown up. From the sounds of their fourth album (fourth? who let that happen?) Young Galaxy are closer to the type...view item »

Vietnam
an A.merican D.ream

I put this CD on the stereo gingerly, keeping my fingers crossed that Vietnam were not attempting the literal with their album title and dropping an Americanised version of D:Ream’s signature ‘90s pop sound. It’s quickly clear from the droney opening and enormous personne...view item »

Ra Ra Riot
Beta Love

I've loved Ra Ra Riot since the first time I heard Too Too Too Fast off The Rhumb Line and The Orchard was one of my fave albums of 2010 so I was extremely excited about getting a new album in 2013. Unfortunately this time around they took a more dance-y, electronic vibe with Beta Love and it falls a bit flat. Not sure if this has to do with the...view item »

The Virgins
Strike Gently

There was some debate in our office as to what this record was going to sound like, with a mysterious female hand holding a burning matchbook on the front cover, and the band name not really suggesting any genre in particular. We discussed how it might be gnarly garage, or maybe some kind of gothy coldwave, maybe some kind of hair metal or sleek...view item »

The Saint James Society
Bab(a/y)lon Rising

Here’s an LP from a Texan “psych rock gang” (quoth the press release) who play a self-described “Pentecostal Desert Glam” (caps their own). In case you’re wondering, this means some kind of cross between Echo & The Bunnymen, Kin...view item »

STRFKR
Miracle Mile

This lot a from Portland, Oregon and seem very happy chappies. Well you would be wouldn’t you? I’m sure it’s better living there than grim old West Yorkshire. They perform a kind of fluffy electronic danceable pop that puts me in mind of people like Phoenix and ...view item »

Heaven's Jail Band
ANGELMAKER

Brooklyn’s Heaven’s Jail Band are back after a 2011 debut I didn’t hear, playing some bluesy indiemericana with some high-pedigree buddies from bands like Phosphorescent and Dept of Eagles dropping by to help out. It’s quite dark...view item »

Acteurs
Acteurs

We’ve had a few interesting debuts this week and this mini-LP from Chicago duo Acteurs is no exception, harnessing a hypnotic technoid pulse and some classy production touches for a fried slice of dystopian cyberpunk synth-(anti)pop. Repetition is the name of the game here, with a relentless mechanical throb and a dense sub-bass pulse are ...view item »

Bandshell
Caustic View

Opening track on this 12” by Bandshell on Mute imprint Liberation Technologies annoys the hell out of me but if you like thumping bass oriented dance breaks then this is the thing for you, second track ‘Perc’ is a little more interesting...view item »

Doldrums
Lesser Evil

Wherein the artist known as Doldrums zaps their enemies thusly and shoots electronica in the bullseye of targets. Lesser Evil takes on dance jams you'd "listen" to (more like, intuitively absorb) in clubs with the noise music you go see to be scared by. The result is a mess, but one you don't wa...view item »

Beer Damage
Hobo On The Face of Music

You all like weird records, right? Well here’s one of them now. My second of the day that falls into that “bonkers unclassifiable esoterica” bracket after I already had to try to wrap my head around that mammoth Ghedalia Tazartes reissue this morning. We’ve not been sent a p...view item »

The Switchblade Kid
The Switchblade Kid

This debut album of garage rock/indie noise pop by The Switchblade Kid is full of JAMC/Stooges cliches and this genre is sounding all too done to death by now but I guess everything these days has been done before so why not stick to what you know. Tracks like &...view item »

Dog Bite
Velvet Changes

I’m not sure if you are aware dear readers that we have a policy of writing little post-it notes on promos to ‘help’ us remember what they sound like. Brian is extremely prolific at this, typical descriptions include ‘generic lame indie toss’, ‘hideous Chris Rea/Paul Weller...view item »

Apache Dropout
Magnetic Heads

This is a lot of fun! What we have here isn’t exactly a “new” Apache Dropout album, but a rummage through their early self-released tapes, made between 2008 and 2009. Great stuff it is too! Murky lo-fi noise scuzz and tape murk do little to diminish the foot-stompin’ country-gara...view item »

Indians
Somewhere Else

I was curling my top lip out five minutes ago in frustration, trying to think who the second track here reminded me of. It was then that the dreadful image of Peter Cetera singing a ballad by Foreigner came floating sinisterly into the vacuous and hideously-lit main arena of my mind and I realised this is where the post-...view item »

The Ruby Suns
Christopher

I’ve had better nights’ sleep. Not a wink ‘til about 2am then a dream about being stabbed to death. Nice, eh? But even with a full night’s glorious shuteye, I would still hate this record with every fibre of my being. From the opening track it’s clear that its horrid vapid pop. I don’t know what it’s aim...view item »

The Children’s Hour
SOS JFK

After finding out The Children's Hour opened for Zwan, I immediately explored their self-titled EP. Their first full-length, SOS JFK, is the perfect album for those times when you just need to mellow out, or need good study music. From the amazing harmonies of "Wyoming" to the soft sadness of "Adoption Day", the Children's Hour have this folk ro...view item »

Esther Maria
The Abyss

Starting with a slow, swoonsome melodica-led instrumental, this second album from the British born, Denmark based singer songwriter kicks into life with a descending acoustic guitar figure and her impressive voice, an octave-defying thing that swoops in all the right places. It’s hard th...view item »

Vallens (DVVLLXNS)
Lxtvny

Well I’m not sure how to pronounce this record’s name, although the opening track is called ‘Litany’...so I suppose it would follow that the artist would be pronounced ‘Daallins’. Nothing to do with indie tweesters Allo ...view item »

Ben Nash
The Mineral Victim

After a lengthy silence, Chora’s Ben Nash came back recently with an album made entirely on his computer, and now here’s another one which seems to have been made with a combination of computer and guitar, c...view item »

Star Slinger (featuring Teki Latex)
Ladies In The Back

“Pretty girl shake that ass for me, not too fast that’s a blast for me do that bump and grind right in front of my face, slow and sexy what’s the race?” Not my words believe it or not although that’s sort of the stuff I tend to say on a Saturday n...view item »

Phil said that these lot are supposed to sound like Spacemen 3 but come across a bit more REM. I see what he’s saying. The opening track sounds like the type of bands who, in the late ‘80s, heard the REM ...view item »

Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X
Zulu Guru

The production is as always with these two simply amazing. The lyrics are poetic, alive and full of emotion. Plus JBIII does his usual great singing and MeLo-X adds his usual honest and deep lyrics. One thing though, this doesn't feel like a 'collab album', it feels like a Jesse Boykins album with some great verses from "MeLo-X" I love both of t...view item »

Josh Mason

I can’t find any info out about this dude anywhere. I’m guessing he’s American as this was recorded in Florida and it’s a personal lament about US TV being a bit shit. I guess if he was from anywhere else in the world then he wouldn’t care. I do like Breaking Bad ...view item »
