    Demon! Beast! We fear you going away - but in the meantime, when will you leave? Maybe we don't even CARE what we’ll stand on if you're not there. But......ffffffffffffffffff.....until then, we're here. You're here. The world exists. With its billions. We're not a world-denier. There are many facts and truths and commonly-held beliefs, many pleasant realities that we're ready to argue over. There are totally things that we know better about than everyone else out there. We know, however, that you won't go away. This explains our stance - stooped, besweated, without sleep, matted, eyes pinned, a spade in our hands. We will stay your maw! As long as you are there and we are here, we will sacrifice throw after throw of our offering to your hunger - our butterflies to grease your wheels! We aren't any more a part of the problem…

  • bitter’s kiss – “Love Won’t Make You Cry”

    Based out of Weehawken, NJ, bitter’s kiss is the vehicle of young singer/songwriter Chloe Baker, whose voice is reminiscent of various excellent chanteuses — from the diosyncratic folk stylings of Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor to Neko Case’s penchant for bluesy/country twangs. Emphasizing human hardship and the melancholic monotony of suburban life, Baker flexes her […]

  • Indiana: No Romeo review – moody and fascinating electro

    This Nottingham mother’s minimalist songs are an island of restraint amid current overblown mainstream pop. And she’s a dab hand at a masturbation metaphor

    You might have heard Indiana’s single Solo Dancing last year. It made the top 20 and got played on BBC Radio 1. Moreover, it stood out by dint of being understated in an era when most mainstream pop stars seem to think subtlety is a village in Languedoc that’s had a lot of one-star reviews on TripAdvisor – I might have heard of it, but I’m certainly never going there. While the rest of the singles chart was either frantically grinning and doing jazz hands inches away from your face, or theatrically boo-hooing its way through ballads, Solo Dancing glowered in the shadows.

  • stream Jonny Greenwood's 'Inherent Vice' soundtrack

    As mentioned, the Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood did the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice which is in theaters now. It includes "Spooks," which was originally to be a Radiohead song and never finished, here performed by Greenwood and Supergrass' Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey with some of Joanna Newsom's narration laid overtop. The rest of Greenwood's score is more traditional orchestration, with lots of strings and wind instruments. The official soundtrack mixes Greenwood's contribution with songs used in the movie, like Can's "Vitamin C," Minnie Ripperton's "Les Fleur" and Neil Young's "Journey Through the Past." You can stream the whole Inherent Vice soundtrack, via Spotify, below...
