Good Thymes

The Thyme Machine From: Lancaster, England The Amateur Taxidremist from Lancaster's The Thyme Machine is the sound rattling around Karl Pilkington's head as he wanders around a museum of taxidermy. It's the northern wit of the Lovely...Show More Summary

Too Pool for School

Girlpool From: Los Angeles, United States Since featuring LA duo Girlpool in May this year (Pool Party) they've been getting mentions in all the best music places on the planet.

Animal Magic

Animal Noise From: Colchester, England Earlier this year I introduced Colchester trio Animal Noise on the back of their rollicking single Bag of Bones (Animal Passions) They're back with another track, the less rollicking, more serious, downbeat Alright which sounds like a slowed down Bag of Bones with clinical depression.

Flying High

We Were Promised Jetpacks From: Edinburgh, Scotland Listen to Unravelling, We Were Promised Jetpacks third album, and you can see why U2 had to force their album on anyone unfortunate enough to have an iTunes account. Unravelling pisses all over U2 from a great height. Show More Summary

Beach Boys and Girls

Menace Beach From: Leeds, England With a name taken from an old Nintendo game where the player controls a skateboarding hero whose girlfriend Bunny has been kidnapped by Demon Dan you'd expect Menace Beach to be a cutesy pop band with electronic leanings. Show More Summary

Demob Rule

Demob Happy From: Brighton, England The rumbling, grumbling Succubus from Brighton foursome Demob Happy sounds like Song 2 era Blur slowed down and wrapped in grime caked gauze. It's sleazier than a Tory politician's snapchat history and will surely be accorded the adjective influential when the history of 2014 is written. Listen Visit Demob Happy - Facebook : Website

Shed 7

Chimpshed A.D. From: Dorset, England Was I There from the bafflingly named Dorset duo Chimpshed A.D. (first featured on the blog in August, New Stuff 3rd August 2014) sounds like Tame Impala if they'd been born in Syd Barret's wardrobe. Listen Visit Chimpshed A.D. - Facebook : Website

Furs Fur

London quartet FURS have been filling chez Devil with their psych lite pop since the first chords of the Just Kids found their way into my ears. So on Tuesday 7th November I made the short walk from my hotel at St Pancras to The Lexington to catch them live for the second time this year. Show More Summary

Sharp Memories

The Sharp Tongues Based: London, England Yesterday's trip to the Toronto underground set of a wave of nostalgia for the time I spent living in the city and the bands I met and saw while I was there. One of the most memorable nights of my short time in Toronto was a gig from a duo called The Sharp Tongues in the Smiling Buddha (read review here). Show More Summary

Taking the Michael

Electro Sensitive Behaviour featuring Perry Blake From: Ireland Irish singer/songwriter Perry Blake's new synthpop project Electro Sensitive Behaviour (ESB) blows the pop world's bloody doors off. Michael Caine, the first product off the ESB assembly line, sounds like a Luke Haines offcut covered by Bowie. Show More Summary

Colt Figures

Lola Colt From: London, England I've been banging on about the wonders of London psychonauts Lola Colt for over 3 years and the rest of the world are, far too slowly if you ask me, catching on. Their newest release Driving Mr Johnny is another in a long line of soon to be classics tumbling from the Lola Colt conveyer belt. Show More Summary

Franklys Mr Shankly

The Franklys From: London, England London garage punkers The Franklys make a fine old racket that sounds like the result of a furtive coupling between The Runaways and The Hives. Their new single What You Said burns slowly at first before exploding in your ears like a molotov cocktail thrown into a firework factory. Show More Summary
