Dennis Hopper Choopers1 (6) DENNIS HOPPER CHOPPERS – GIRL WALKED OUT OF TOWN –

D WINK

Another fine slice of dusk til dawn Americana. Lifted from their excellent LP Be Ready.

 

2 (4) THE TRAVELLING BAND – SUNDIAL XXMI – COOKING VINYL

Now a festival anthem and set for a well deserved re-release. Inspiring.

 

3 (9) DJANGO DJANGO – WAVEFORMS – BECAUSE

Modern groovy psychedelia that brings The Stone Roses, The Beta Band and Low era David Bowie to mind.

 

4 (10) RICHARD WARREN – THE LONESOME SINGER…- TV

Dark country blues with a 50’s twilight twang. Comes backed with the beautiful “Wasteland”, sort of Richard Hawley meets Timber Timbre.

 

5 (13) AMBASSADEURS – COME A LITTLE CLOSER EP – JALAPENO

A sunny afternoon in Toon Town, followed by soulful trip hop and rounded off with an off kilter version of Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Perculiar”.

 

6 (25) LE VOLUME COURBE – THEODAURUS REX EP – PICKPOCKET

Charlotte Marionneau’s sedutive yet innocent vocals totally compliment the beautiful and fragile Kevin Shield’s song I Love The Living You.

 

7 (18) THE FIELD – LOOPING STATE OF MIND – KOMPAKT

Modern atmospheric electronics swirl around old school Balearic rhythms building into various states of euphoria. Get right on one matey!

 

8 (16) SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA – ALWAYS – EXCEPTIONAL BLUE

Soulful, exhilarating, genre defying and in a class of its own. Laxx skanks it up nice.

 

9 (7) THE JAPANESE POPSTARS – TAKE FOREVER – VIRGIN

The lipstick king Robert Smith soars over pulsing gothic disco. Attaque comes up trumps on the remix front, delivering wall climbing take no prisoners techno.

 

10 (NEW) KURT VILE – SO OUTTA REACH EP – MATADOR

Five outstanding brand new songs from the “Smoke Ring For My Halo” sessions, plus a take on Bruce Springsteen’s “Downbound Train”. What more could you ask for.

 

11 (NEW) WE WERE PROMISSED JETPACKS – IN THE PIT OF THE STOMACH – FAT CAT

Their second LP sees them brimming with confidence as they take it up a few notches. Energy fuelled anthems & wigouts are the order of the day.

 

12 (14) CLOCK OPERA – LESSON No.7 – MOSHI MOSHI / ISLAND

Coming on like a 50’s teen idol before going for the sky is the limit with driving drums, fast guitars and ascending keys.

 

13 (24) THE GOLDEN FILTER – SYNDROMES – PERFECTLY ISOLATED

The New York duo have made a short film and accompanying soundtrack about a girl with mysterious talents. Deliciously spooky.

 

14 (27) THE LOVELY EGGS – PANIC PLANTS – CHERRYADE

A psychedelic sing a long about OCD in the village hall after a hard days graft on the allotment.

 

15 (26) K-X-P – EASY – MELODIC

Glam rock, Balearic beat, post punk, kraut rock and The Banana Splits all get a look in.

 

16 (NEW) CHRIS COCO – HOLIDAY – MELODICA

Like watching old Super 8 films to a dreamy soundtrack featuring Samantha Whates creating a fantastic 60’s sophisticated European vibe. Lovely.

 

17 (NEW) THE BROKEN VINYL CLUB – THE BROKEN VINYL CLUB – ACID JAZZ

Debut LP of swinging 60’s influenced pop, complete with well thought out harmonies and all those very important details & licks that make this a worthy nostalgic trip.

 

18 (17) TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS – GARDEN REMIXES –

POLYDOR

Luisa from Lulu & The Lampshades shares the vocals and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard leads the remix onslaught. Soul Clap and Hackman do the do.

 

19 (NEW) JASMINE KARA – BLUES AIN’T NOTHING BUT A GOOD WOMAN GONE BAD – ACID JAZZ

A soulful pop star in the making and on the rise with the Chess Records seal of approval.

 

20 (NEW) CONNAN MOCKASIN – FAKING JAZZ TOGETHER – BECAUSE / PHANTASY

Tom Furse of The Horrors fame takes this to another level, cooking up percussive rhythms, a dubby bassline and far out electronics. A bit like an early Andrew Weatherall production.

 

21 (23) TEEN DAZE – A SILENT PLANET – LEFSE

Six tracks of floaty blissed out loveliness to immerse yourself in.

 

22 (28) BRIOSKI – RADIOACTIVITY – NANG

21st Century Italo disco. The Emperor Machine Stretched Version takes it into orbit.

 

23 (NEW) RADICAL MAJIK – MENTAL HEALTH – THE BOARDROOM PRESENTS

The Boardroom Collective have set up their own label and the debut release is 3 cuts of deep house, off kilter techno and mutant disco with all manner of influences & subtleties. Nice.

 

24 (30) MUSTANG – SHOOTING LOVE – DIFFERENT

Contemporary synth pop with 80’s big hair, fake tan & shoulder pads. Black Strobe and Jeremy Glen take it to the disco.

 

25 (NEW) HEADMAN – BE LOVED – RELISH

Daniel Avery ventures into the dark side of old school Chicago with his Divided Love Remix.
