Flowerheads – Demo 2008 (Jamendo)

Ah 2008, I remember it so well, you could leave your doors open and no one would burgle you, children knew their place and the labouring classes always doffed their hats when you passed them on the street. Halcyon days. And apparently a Surf Rock band released a demo album around that time too, so there y’go, it really was the best we’d ever had it. Read the rest of this entry »

The Art Punk Band – Zeno And The Happy Cats (Jamendo)

A very definite example of an aquired taste today in the form of a short album release from American trio The Art Punk Band, who appear to have thrown themselves back in time a few decades to an era when musical perfection lagged far behind a self-convinced ‘good’ idea and a couple of friends.

nobonus NoBonus – No Code

 A thoroughly Doors-esque single here from the Psychedelic, whirling wastelands of  France. Surprisingly good quality for a live recording but not exactly the most  original effort, still, it’s an entertaining enough listen and at 15 minutes it’s well worth  the money you’re not paying for this nicely crafted effort.  Click on the picture to head  over and download.

Antropy – Dirty Little Mind

A fairly polished little dose of Indie Pop, not particularly inspired and a bit of an audio mash up of a fairly predictable list of influences but it does what it does better than most and is more than listenable enough to have somewhere on a Summer play list.

Electric Sheep Blowjob – One Beat Sessions

If you’re going to choose a name like that you really should produce music to match it rather than fairly generic Electronica, but that aside… A dose of small and well crafted Electronica from Finland (Electric Sheep Blowjob – would have worked far better on a Death Metal band but ho hum), not all that exciting but in the vast ocean of online bedroom DJ releases this holds its own somewhere just above the middle.





The Wagner Logic – Easiest to Grab

The Wagner Logic – Easiest to Grab (Jamendo)

The normal habit for people posting their work on Jamendo is to say ‘we can’t define ourselves by a genre’, which is annoying and usually completely untrue but such is life I suppose. A rather more bizarre habit though is to list genres which you clearly have nothing to do with, which I can only assume The Wagner Logic did by accident when they typed ‘Punk’ in the little box given that, in the words of Bill Bailey, they’re about ‘as Punk as Enya’. Now I hope it was a typo on their behalf but it could just be that in the wilds of Alaska anyone who manages to stir themselves from their hibernation long enough to cobble together an album of rather dull Indie is rated as a radical free spirit, raging against the system and fighting the machine, or polar bears, or whatever it is Alaskans do.

Atomic Suplex distort the universe…

14 01 2009

A few free tracks from Atomic Suplex, masters of ‘ROCK’ of the sort that was always meant to be. If you can get through the insane amount of distortion and start playing air guitar it’s not too bad at all. Plus their lead singer wears a helmet, which is always good.
