Ty Segall – Goodbye Bread (Drag City)

My immediate reaction was The Three Bs: Boring. Blokey. Beards. But it’s not that simple.

Com Truise – Galactic Melt (Ghostly International)

Ultimately, it’s too edgy to be a narcotic, too moody to use as background music, and frequently too beautiful to be ignored.

Song of the day – 379: Pony (a mini-review)

If this was 1978, the melodica would be the main instrument.

THE ALTERNATE REVIEW: Fucked Up – David Comes To Life (Matador)

Fucked Up is the kind of band that makes me wish I were in their band.

Chrome – Red Exposure (Cherry Red)

You can almost lick the penguins.

 Tom Randall

Iceage – New Brigade (What’s Your Rupture?)

Iceage have the wisdom to be brief: what they evoke is too much to bear for too long.

 Wallace Wylie

R.E.M. – Lifes Rich Pageant (25th Anniversary Edition) (Capitol)

If you ever find me dying in the street don’t give me mouth to mouth (I don’t know where your filthy lips have been), just play me ”These Days’

 Scott Creney

Wet Hair – In Vogue Spirit (De Stijl)

Our heartbeats are fluttering erractically.

 Tom Randall

Fucked Up – David Comes To Life (Matador)

Woah, what the? Fucked Up? Monochrome?
