Hullo, you pilfering pilchards o’ Pimlico, this is our always late EP round up, where we trawl through the titanic troves of tinnitus-inducing music and bring you the best of what’s around. Or at least what WE think it’s the best of what’s around.

Remember: don’t adjust your opinion. We are just a shithole of a website (TM)

Review : Shellac – Dude Incredible

shellac

shellac

It’s been seven barren years since Shellac bothered to release an album and some of us have waited season in, year out since Excellent Italian Greyhound hit the shelves/files sharing/general internet (delete as you use) in 2007.

It has to be said that in that time we’ve endured a lot of industry hurly-burly. The frugal yet fragile Michael Jackson attempted to book a one venue tour and died. Soni…

4 hours. How can a flight be delayed for almost 4 hours? #FuckVolaris and #VolarisdeMierda indeed. Anyways, a late flight became a red-eye flight but after 2 years I finally met again with Janine Doe Jr., who came to this smog cappuccino we…

With a title like this and given Mr. Ghedi’s previous recordings, I was expecting a passionate outpouring of meaningful and inspiring spiritual jazzfolk but surprisingly, Jim’s
having none of it.

An artist never afraid to follow his heart, Jim Ghedi neatly sidesteps all our preconceptions on this newest recording to be released…

Review: alt-j @alt_J – This Is All Yours (by @mandapen)

altjtri

alt-J was propelled from emerging indie band status to a national news story last year when the band’s debut An Awesome Wave won the Mercury Music Prize. Such a meteoric rise puts pressure on a group, especially when it comes to the traditionally “difficult” second album. But even with the departure of bassist Gwil Sainsbury, which trimmed the original line-up to a three piece, alt-Jhas returned…

Reseña: Robert Plant @RobertPlant - Lullaby and… the ceaseless roar (por @florenfermiza)

rplant

rplant

No es fácil reinventarse después de 30 años. Existen artistas, que ya sea por autocomplacencia, por falta de talento o por necedad de los fans, siguen regodeándose en el mismo estilo y las viejas glorias.

Existen, por otro lado, artistas como Robert Plant, que pudiendo “dormir en sus laureles” y dedicarse a vivir de los recuerdos, nunca han caído en la tentación de la nostalgia, y han logrado…

Review: Karen O @kareno - Crush Songs by @keefyh

Holy Moly this is good. A really No-Fi aesthetic is the order of the day. Karen baring her soul in a forlorn heartbroken manner. Nearly all the “tunes” clock in at under 2 minutes. Crush Songsis not in the slightest bit tedious, the lovely seemingly unfinished recordings gives the feel that we are sitting outside her bedroom door…
