The BV’s – Every Story Is A Ghost Story

The BV’s are one of the bands whose output I either love (Ray) or loathe (most of the Interpunktion EP) and they are a bit like The Catherines for me in that respect. However I thought the two recent demos were a step forward and that view is further enhanced with forthcoming single Every Story … Continue reading

Ending 2017 #5

No Vacation – Intermission Dreamy, laid-back music from Californian’s No Vacation. It’s easy to drift off and daydream to these tracks especially on opener Yam Yam which sets the tone for the EP. If indiepop clubs had chill out rooms this could well be the soundtrack. Available on vinyl, cassette and digital formats from here. … Continue reading

Pale Spectres – Pale Spectres

More excellent indiepop from Parisians Pale Spectres who musically transport the listener back to the 1980’s. If they were around in those days they could well have been signed to a certain Bristol based label. There are four songs spread across this EP and they all delight in equal measure. The jangling guitars and the … Continue reading

Clearing The Decks

I have bookmarked a lot of music to mention but time prevents me from writing about them all individually so this post is a round up of them all serving as my must buy list too! Note: if you want to listen to a companion playlist to this post head over here. The Hundredth Anniversary … Continue reading

It’s very C86 influenced as are most things I have heard coming out of Japan these days. Those in the UK can order it from Rough Trade. You can download a mp3 of … Continue reading

The Occasional Flickers – Capitalism Begins at Home

I must admit that the Occasional Flickers had fallen off my radar since 2007’s “When The Sky Looks So Gray” single. The band were founded by Greek born Giorgos Bouras and are now based in Edinburgh. You can hear some of Scotlands musical influences here. I am not gonna mention any bands as that will … Continue reading

The Secret History – Americans Singing In The Dark

I previously mentioned the release of this album last month and now it has appeared for ordering digitally via bandcamp. You can also now order a physical copy from Cloudberry Records. The NYC based band are over in the UK next month and play Colour Me Pop with Comet Gain and The Pale Spectres on … Continue reading

They have also made available some demos form their “early days”. This set features Cut and Run which appeared as a limited … Continue reading

Flowers – Cut & Run

The first post I wrote about Flowers seem to be consistently popular on this site. Since then we (Sleeping Today) have put the band on and I also managed to get my mitts on the Cloudberry 7″ release which is still available if you can afford the US postage charges which make ours look pretty … Continue reading
