Segueness III

[Segueness is a curious random occurrence where two tunes ultimately beat as one] Lovebabies were signed to Richard Branson’s V2 label for a short time in the late nineties. I bought their ‘Blue Earth Angel’ EP cause I liked their […] 

My Dad vs. Yours – Grand Law Of Unintended Consequences

Another post-rock outfit to steal your heart, My Dad vs. Yours have a colourful history that saw them first entering the creative arena as puppeteers. An acid tongued critic put paid to the fledgling string merchants aspirations and they soon […] 

The ME Band – TV Show

The ME band wouldn’t have been possible 15 years ago. They conduct much of their creative business on the internet you see, so when Jon Seneger is busy knocking off bit parts in Sweden his counterpart Mark Wilkinson in England […] 

Human Television – In Front Of The House

I’m not sure guitars have been jangled this tenderly since the Field Mice decided to call it a day. Human Television rank Rocketship among their influences (they may be young but they’ve done their research) and with a debut album […] 

Michael Knight – I Did It Biff's Way

You can now buy this song and the rest of the album on our record label Indiecater Records here! In some ways ‘I Did It Biff’s Way’ is an new avenue of wonkatainment for Michael Knight but as a curtain […] 

Viva Voce – We Do Not Fuck Around

We’ve already have a clutch of endearing boy/girl duo’s, Meg and Jack (White), Eleanor and Matt (Friedberger), Bonnie and Clyde (cough). You can now add a pair of Robinson’s to the list as the Kevin Husband and Anite Wife duo […] 

Viva L'American Death Ray Music – Needle To The Heart Of The Matter

Get your retro jeans on because this is going to trigger some memories. Right now I am hearing And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and Lou Reed but there is a smorgasbord of influences seeping through. […] 

Segueness II

[Segueness is a curious random occurrence where two tunes ultimately beat as one] Not very obvious this one but I can’t listen to either song without thinking of the other. Witness seemed to have the critics in their pockets but […] 

Delakota – C'mon Cincinnati

Kasabian have cleverly nailed their intentions to the Manchester flag. Occasionally they can be kinda stirring but tune longevity is the one trick that have yet to master. ‘Club Foot’, so immensely off its rocker initially soon sags like a […] 

Darker My Love – Fall

The Serena Maneesh album is proof positive that shoegazing is enjoying a fruitful second coming. Even more fresh off the press is the debut album from California’s Darker My Love which came out a couple of days ago. If MBV, […] 

James Blunt – Round And Round

This is a real exclusive for the site! A while back James Blunt sent me a message through myspace asking whether we’d be interested in giving his forthcoming album a push by posting a track. Naturally I was horrified at […] 

The Arcade Fire – No Winter For A Year

Speaking of works in progress (or works that never progressed in this case) here is a clip of the Arcade Fire before they bloomed into their current multi-membered incarnation. ‘Winter For A Year’ is taken from a demo recorded in […]
