Sex Cult – ‘Errand Boy’ 7″

July 12, 2012


  Despite its radicality, the major pitfall in calling your band Sex Cult is the fact that, regardless of what you do, the music will never, ever top the name. And so it was with a heavy heart that I first started listening to the eponymous track off their Errand Boy 7″, only to be met with […]

Mozart Parties – ‘Memory Thunderstorm’ EP

December 3, 2011


I only discovered this band yesterday, but I’m already in love with Mozart Parties‘ (aka James Bennett) newly released Memory Thunderstorm EP. The guy takes a sun-soaked, poppy approach to shoegaze that should appeal to fans of Youth Lagoon or Whirr, and I already know I’ll be playing the hazy, mesmerising dream pop of ‘Where Has Everybody […]

Fag Cop – ‘Whimpers From the Pantheon’ Side A

November 6, 2011


As I mentioned when we posted (almost all of) jizzwave/shitgaze legends Fag Cop‘s discography, the band was planning on releasing an LP, Whimpers From the Pantheon in 2011. Although Side A of that very full-length has been available for listening for while, it was only in the form of one track, with all five of the […]

Thee Oh Sees – ‘Carrion Crawler/The Dream’

November 2, 2011


I was never really a fan of California-based (duh) garage rockers Thee Oh Sees, but that changed when I heard ‘The Dream’, a cut off Carrion Crawler/The Dream, their second full-length of this year. Nearing seven minutes of driving, swaggering groove, the song bridges the gap between 70’s-ish psych rock and lo-fi punk, with its […]

Women – ‘Service Animal’ 7″

October 23, 2011


It’s unfortunate but, after their messy break earlier this year, it’s looking like Canadian noise-poppers Women will never record again. Last year’s full-length, Public Strain, was wonderful and they certainly went out on a high with their contribution (‘Bullfight’) to a four-way split with Fair Ohs, Friendo and Cold Pumas, but it’s a pretty significant […]

arch m – ‘Cples’ EP

October 10, 2011


I’ve had a fair bit of reading and studying to do of late, and this, arch m‘s gorgeous Cples EP, has been invaluable to me during the process. The guy makes hazy, sun-soaked bedroom tunes perfect for working late into the night or for a contemplative fifteen minutes on the train. The songs are short […]

Elvis Depressedly – ‘Goner’

October 4, 2011


I’ve been on a Coma Cinema kick as of late, if you hadn’t already seen my post from the other day, and while it seems that for the time being Mat Cothran will not be recording under that name (the guy seems to be in a very bad place right now), he recently put out […]
