The Pocketbooks – Cross The Line (Atomic Beat Records)

Sister Vanilla goes Chemikal 

The Manhattan Love Suicides 

As the year draws to a close I always start to review the musical releases and discoveries I have made – the best LP, the best new band, the most exciting gig etc. And as is known to happen – there is always a late comer. A gate crasher. And this year that award goes […]

Ella Glockenspiel 

…she’s quite possibly the coolest girl in Malmo As you’re all aware of my obsession with all things Scandinavian, I hold my hands up to another one. Except she’s Swedish.

Found Lost Music 

The mood is dreamy and hopeful but there’s always room for Mr Holman’s trademark cynicism: “everyone’s for sale at some point, nothing’s built to last”. If that’s good, flip it over for best. ‘After the Ice Storm’ has the sort of despairing, introspective beauty that the last Tompaulin album (the ace-to-the-power-of-infinity ‘Into the Black’) possessed. It’s a claustrophobic kitchen sink drama, a story of bitter unfaithfulness, twisting and turning from reason to pleading to loathing in the course of three perfectly weighted minutes, and with a splendid c-word sign-off. If you love Darren Hayman, David Gedge and the acidic side of Bob Dylan, you’ll love this. This is a defiant, verging on the arrogant, assertion of the new band’s existence and it’s more than justified.

Celestial – Dream O 

Hailing from Sweden – Celestial is one man, Andreas Hagman, and on his debut LP – ‘Dream On’ he’s been helped by assorted friends. I believe he now has got a band together. Fingers crossed that this band makes it to London for a gig or three.

The Sailplanes are a three piece band that appear to be from or at least based in London. They make a fine brand of guitar noise. I have been meaning to do a brief little review for ages. And now it seems is the time.
