Chris Cohen – Caller No. 99

Chris Cohen had existed up to 2012 in the fringes but his solo record on Captured Tracks that year proved that while he was an able foil in bands such as Deerhoof, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and Danielson his talent […] 

Landlady – Above My Ground

This is the equivalent of spotting some artwork and buying the CD based on that aesthetic prompt alone. For once I clapped eyes on this band with the name Landlady I knew for sure that the goods within would be […] 

Cap Pas Cap – Friends

With barely enough time to consume the audio mountain these days I rarely get to watch visuals but the promo video for this one did leave some residue that required further inspection. In what is probably a tragic reflection of […] 

Indie Basslines From Heaven

This list of great basslines could never be exhaustive but we’ve tried to pick out our favourites – it’s up to you to let us know (in the comments below) about the ones we’ve missed. What has surprised us is […] 

Damien Jurado – Silver Timothy

11 albums in and still pumping out the goods Seattle artist Damien Jurado must surely be in line for a break or two. Not that being signed to Secretly Canadian can be anything else but a good thing but with […] 

Jimi Goodwin – Terracotta Warrior

Jimi Goodwin had to make this album just to prove to himself that he didn’t need anyone else (apart from Guy Garvey of Elbow who co-wrote two of the tracks). If nothing else there goes his fear because as debut […] 

Yuck – Memorial Fields

The sophomore slump has truly set in for London band Yuck with critics who had earlier praised their nascent grasp of the best the 90’s now bemoaning the lack of Daniel Blumberg on album number two ‘Glow & Behold’. With […]

Skirting between a long line of interesting bands including Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls and Frankie Roses & the Outs the self-same Frankie Rose has now teamed up with Drew Citron on Beverly. The pair’s debut album ‘Careers’ […] 

Youth Mass – Dream On

Where to start with the driving, propulsive Galáctico that is Youth Mass’ debut LP? From a band who’ve rarely popped their head above the precipice release wise (apart from a couple of well received singles and an unheralded football song) […] 

The Harvest Ministers – Tombstone Eyes

Will Merriman is the institution that propels the good ship Harvest Ministers, an act that has been releasing fine records since 1993 (formed way back in 1987). His faithful may have remained undeniably small throughout the years but this is […] 

Still Parade – Health

If you thought that most modern music had lost its pulse then ‘Health’ from Berlin’s Still Parade should be a shot in the arm. Niklas Kramer is at the controls pushing his innerspace into the outer regions of the internet […] 

The Soft Hills – Golden Hour

You’ll probably know that ‘Golden Hour’ resonates with us but only once the song has slipped into a subtle flow that is defined by the shiniest of jangle. It comes courtesy of a band from Seattle, led by Garrett Hobba, […]
