Aphex Twin – Donkey Rhubarb

As if 13 years between releases wasn’t enough Limerick man Richard D. James has just marked his return with a classic slice of accessible electronica in ‘Minipops’ (and assorted codes with digits) which will form part of his comeback ‘Syro’ […] 

Shoes – Do I Get So Shy

Because the internet wasn’t around in the mid 1970’s Illinois band Shoes never stood a chance. Without an army of spotty bloggers in their corner it was always likely that songs as delicate and demo-sounding as ‘Do I Get So […] 

Max Jury – Christian Eyes

At first I couldn’t even figure if it was a male or female singing. Not that it mattered a whole lot but now it’s clear that Max Jury is a 21-year-old lad from Des Moines. His voice certainly resonates with […] 

Courtney Barnett – Avant Gardener

This is just beautiful slacker rock from the Melbourne based artist Courtney Barnett that rings true from the word go. Included in the woozy dynamics are Barnett’s trademark slide guitars and her near spoken word stream of consciousness singing. While […] 

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 […]
