Teleman – Skeleton Dance

Thomas Saunders specialises in zippy indie numbers, the type that normally don’t require several plays before you’re in raptures. The danger in this kind of tuneage of course is that when you get to half a dozen listens it is […] 

Luluc – Winter Is Passing

If you haven’t heard of Melbourne’s Luluc just yet you can be sure they will tripping the light fantastic by year’s end such is the downright gorgeousness of their new LP ‘Passerby’. Perhaps they’ll arrive at your door via word […] 

Junip – Walking Lightly

At first I thought this was David Kitt and his eventual return to the sort of form that so illuminated his first couple of LP’s. Sadly ‘Walking Lightly’ is instead the work of a pair of men from much farther […] 

Tilbury – Great Expectations

If you are looking for something to wake you from your Sunday afternoon slumber then look no further than Tilbury’s ‘Great Expectations’. It comes from the Icelandic band’s second LP ‘Northern Comfort’ which has the unusual trick of housing tracks […] 

Jack and Eliza – Hold The Line

They didn’t even need to search for each other as the tinder was set as they met as kids a while back (they’re both still in college). And it is that natural coming together that has lent their voices time […] 

Kalle Mattson – The Moon Is Gold

At the close of a bank holiday weekend the emotions that well up from deep inside tend to be ones of the raw variety rather than feelings of expectancy and excitement. Who wouldn’t rather be kicking a football, squelching on […] 

Lord Huron – Last Night You Were A Dream

Not that he was ever close to irrelevant but 2014 has seen Beck Hanson’s reinvention and may yet prove to be his best year yet. He’s already bagged a winning ‘traditional’ album called ‘Morning Phase’ but it could be his […] 

Archie Bronson Outfit – In White Relief

Beards, check; ever so disheveled yet neatly sequenced audio, check; superiorly cool and signed to generally on the money label, check; obliquely presented with miniscule media profile, check; overtly talented and not just when it comes to music, check; so […] 

The Proper Ornaments – Don’t You Want to Know (What You’re Going to Be)

You know we are all about the art of the jangle, a cul-de-sac indie offshoot that we’ve travelled down many a time and always find something new to salivate over. It’s not always about the destination you see and when […] 

Man Meets Bear – Waabgonii Giizis

For some this might sound like a recording of the moment the alien craft hit the surface of the earth but personally this provides a glimmer of hope that perhaps there is hope. Hope that something in 2014 can sound […] 

Hunter Hunted – Keep Together

Not earth shattering in the original department but there is always something to be said for a song that is true to its exuberant heart and plays it completely for fun. Hardly surprising then that ‘Keep Together’ has snagged the […] 

Gypsy & The Cat – It’s A Fine Line

The World Cup has been on so long I’ve almost forgotten how it feels not to be in awe of 22 men running around after a spherical leather object. The concept is almost daft when you think about it, how […]
