Leave Me Alone
Leave Me Alone (clear vinyl 7")
Cat: SVSV 777187. Rel: 06 Nov 20
  1. Leave Me Alone! (3:00)
  2. Be With Me (4:10)
Review: Boy Pablo continues his mission to make us all nostalgic for our younger years with a track taken from this year's bubblegum album, Wachito Rico. 'Leave Me Alone' is enough to tell newcomers what they can expect from the full length release. Uptempo, melodic and polished to a fault, it's a timeless, chart-friendly, indie pop sound that has won over a huge following with its unabashed positivity, albeit the sentiments are apparently tied to the feeling disappointment when his parents suddenly making him leave a birthday party early.

Flip it and you find the laidback, smooth, R&B vibes of 'Be With Me', a song that didn't make it onto the LP itself but certainly would not have sounded out of place if it had. Cascading guitar harmonies and a stepping, shuffling beat, it owes plenty to the lo-fi electronic sexiness that has been pervading downtempo beats for years, but is far from a cheap knock-off.

Review: Given the amount of energy he's put into his "Tim's Twitter Party" online listening events this year, it's perhaps surprising that Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess has found time to record new music. Ascent of the Ascended, his new EP, follows on from May's well-received solo album, I Love The New Sky, and lands on orange translucent vinyl. Fans will find plenty to cheer, including two songs recorded with, and produced by, Charles Heywood: the effervescent title track and 'Yours To Be', a deliciously jangling, life-affirming affair built around multi-tracked acoustic guitars, soft-touch percussion and lilting horn lines. The set's four other tracks, including a rather lovely new version of Charlatans classic 'The Only One I Know', were recorded "in session" during a Paste Magazine event in New York.

Review: Just when you thought Record Store Day 2020 was over out comes another release, this time in the form of some remixes of Metronomy. These are the best of the bunch from the Metronome Forever Campaign and include Idles take on 'Wedding Bells', which is the Bristol band's first official remix for another artist. Kompakt label head and long time grown up techno champ Michael Meyer then comes through with a What IZ Love remix of 'Insecurity' that is all about widescreen electronic exploration. Interdisciplinary audio-visual artist Anna Lann and much vaunted Domino talent Georgia then steps up and the whole thing is shut down with a rework from Running Back boss Gerd Jansen in collaboration with Shan.

Review: A reminder of the days when liking Morrissey was a less contentious matter than it is today, 'Honey You Know Where To Find Me' is one of his more jubilant moments musically and lyrically finds the Moz in typically defiant form. The song dates back to the recording sessions for the classic Vauxhall & I album, although the original recording was shelved, only to be re-recorded a year later. You can't keep a good song down, it seems, and here it is again in glorious 10" -- and strictly limited - orm.

Review: We should have known New Order were the outfit to deliver one of 2020's biggest nostalgia-hued and euphorically-reflective indie-dance tracks. Manchester party spirit-cliches aside, their work has consistently straddled the two camps, from early output like 'Blue Monday' through remixes such as late-90s progressive breaks favourite 'Crystal' and onto the pop bounce of 2015's 'Tutti Frutti'.

The quality has varied, but their story is anything but a simple case of becoming outdated or outgunned. Be A Rebel is proof of their ability to still pull out the monsters, with frontman Bernard Sumner offering up his own take on this huge track, and Stephen Morris adding a T34 edit to boot. As big and bold as all that sounds, you'll be lucky to get the limited grey vinyl through the door.

  1. Mork N Mindy (feat Billy Nomates) (3:29)
  2. Little Bits (3:25)
Review: Britain's finest working class poets return with a tune named after the 1970s-80s extraterrestrial sitcom starring Robin Williams and Pam Dawber, which frontman Jason Williamson has himself described as "the sound of the central heating and the dying smells of Sunday dinner in a house on an estate in 1982". Fittingly the same year said TV show was cancelled.

It's not hard to hear what he means, providing your mind works that way. A sweeping, hypnotic, mechanical hook, the heavy atmosphere that seems to hang in the air long after the very UK, very deprecating rhymes end. Even Billy Nomates' beautiful, soulful vocals can't save it from drowning in delightful scuzz. Backed with the smoky breaks instrumental 'Little Bits', it bodes well for a new album in January, Spare Ribs, which is apparently based on the idea that elites place no value in the lives of everyday people. How apt.

  3. Shine (5:22)
  4. Albatross (5:15)
Review: It's 1991 and all looks alarming right with the world - little did we know what was coming a few decades later. Nevertheless, the Berlin Wall has already fallen, uniting East and West, and Slowdive have been drumming up some serious support by way of that self-titled EP and sequel, Morningrise. Then they dropped Just For A Day, the debut album, and cemented their place in shoegaze ambient rock 'n' roll history.

Holding Our Breath is both a collector's item reissue, which originally arrived slightly ahead of that first full album, and an exceptional example of how newcomers can be blown away by the euphoria and strange opiate intensity of this band after hearing only a handful of tracks. Comprising 'Catch The Breeze', 'Golden Hair', 'Shine' and 'Albatross', everything soars, glides, ebbs and flows its way through stunning, epic soundscapes that are somehow loud and quiet.

Review: Delightfully distorted, heavy footed and prone to putting the pedal down, SUUNS drop a new coloured vinyl EP that's just as vivid on the ears - next level, call it what you like stuff that gives about as much of a shit about genre lines as you do. What counts is it sounds exceptionally good, and rather unique, which is saying something for our era, albeit typical for the band in question.

From the white noise textures of 'Look' to the punk rage and menacing voice over of 'Trouble Every Day' it's a wise idea to buckle up from the get go. Whether it's the strange post punk-cum-acid disco of 'Pray', 'Breathe''s gypsy punk stylings or the frozen, twisted harmonies of 'Death', there's more happening in six tracks here than you could normally reasonably expect from ten.

Review: Ultraista put out a highly acclaimed album in March and now it gets remixed by some superb underground electronic artists. Floating Points ditches his intricate prog and synth work of recent times to turn in a nice glitchy garage mix. American FaltyDL then soars up to the heavens on nice soulful vocal and shimmering drums and Zero 7 goes for a slower, more downtempo vibe for chilled home sessions. After a flurry of jungle percussion and drums from Crate Classics, Leifur James closes things down with intricate electronics and pensive synths. No two tunes here are alike, and all are essential.

Review: There's a slight disconnect between British Sea Power the sound and British Sea Power up close and personal. Theirs is a rock 'n' roll style that's more mainstream and open-armed than edgy and obtuse, but they more than make up for that universal appeal with on-stage antics that have health and safety crews hitting the panic button.

Which isn't to say their guitar noises can't incite riots. As the uptempo, rousing, riff-heavy opener 'It Ended On An Oily Stage' proves. Even the day-to-day commentary, rolling bass and rhythms of 'How Will I Ever Find My Way Home' has a way of making you feel battle ready. Now reissued for its 15th birthday, coming packed with a ton of sessions for BBC 6Music deities Mark Radcliffe and Gideon Coe, alongside remasters, its impact has not waned since we first found each other.

Review: The Cribs have a lot riding on this one, having hit a career-plateau with 2017's just-decent-enough 24-7 Rock Star Shit and spent several years soul searching amid management disputes. It's also the record they made in California after being invited out by Dave Grohl, who recognised a band in dire need of escaping from the industrial side of the music business. So the strength of this record, and its reception, could do wonders or cause more damage.

Thankfully it's a big step in the right direction, and opening track 'Goodbye' can even be read as a final farewell to difficult days gone by. It's hard not to buy into the idea, too, given the song is a curveball wave of surf pop nobody was expecting. Freshness that certainly sets the tone, although with wholly Cribs-ian work like 'Running Into You' and 'The Weather Sparks Your Name' militant fans shouldn't worry, either.

Review: Mark 'E' Everett has rarely sounded so elegantly weather-beaten, self-assured and poignant as he does on this 15th album under his melancholic moniker, Eels. Like a poetic, almost-childlike retelling of one adult's abusive relationship with life itself, everything here is musically perfect and almost playful, while the fables and tales are anything but kid-friendly.

Then again, we probably don't need to point that out with track titles like 'Are You Fucking Your Ex', a tragi-comedy as reliant on lilting guitars as it is the wordsmith's sharp pen. Similarly brokenhearted, but far more sombre, 'Of Unsent Letters' takes us into fireside folk-blues territory, while the late night romantic blues rock scuzz of 'Baby Let's Make It Real' sets things up perfectly for closer 'Waking Up', an intimate and reflective tome that comes with subtle prangs of optimism, despite the teary six string scales.

Review: Presenting the fifth album from Mica Levi and his Shapes cohorts, now renamed (rebranded?) as Good Bad Happy Sad. Their experience is evident in its quality, but there's also an innocence at play here that often comes with debut records, positioning this release as the start of a new era for the outfit.

If anything, the band seem so keen to get the fresh music out they are happy with imperfections - and all should be forgiven when a tape captures the pure energy and vibrance driving this album, which often sounds like the crew are still toying stylistically. 'Believe It''s arty sax hooks and loose guitar riffs contrast its tight and very basic melody. The title number does more than flirt with surf rock, while 'Honey' brings in grungier, scuzzier tones. A particularly flavoursome recipe.

Review: Whereas Joji's acclaimed 2018 debut album was an evocative and atmospheric concoction that sat somewhere between lo-fi trip-hop, experimental R&B and bubbly electronica, this hotly anticipated follow-up is a much bolder and more musically advanced affair. That means that the Japanese-Australian artist's evocative, eyes-closed vocals come cloaked in sweeping strings, crunchy guitars and twinkling pianos, while resting on booming basslines and punchy, tweaked hip-hop and R&B beats. It's a formula that only enhances his already impressive songs, while the presence of some high-profile collaborators - Diplo and Yves Tumor included - only emphasizes the top-tier circles he's now moving in.

Review: These seven tracks of scuzzy, lo-fi indie are ingrained with the sound of London streets. The trio of musicians behind it - guitarist Barrie Cadogan, bassist Lewis Wharton and drummer Malcolm Catto - draw on all their 25-year plus experiences of working in multiple genres to serve up blues and rock collisions, psyched-out indie trips, gauzy, summer of love sonics and breakbeat and jazz fusions. The tracks were recorded with minimal overdubs making for an expansive and all consuming sound where the driving rhythm sections do the heavy lifting while the swirling sonics up top take things to a higher level. It might be deeper and darker than you'd expect of this band, but what else would you expect of a record made during this most weird of years.

The second slab of wax boasts no less than ten bonus tracks, including previously unreleased song 'Wherefore Are You Not There', the sought after 'Red Version' of 'Dark Design, and a fine Mogwai remix of 'Why Are You Looking Grave'.

Review: Rip it up and start again seems to be the mantra of Micko Westmoreland, the Leeds-born, London-based Micko in the Micko & The Mellotronics equation. He's had a succession of interesting careers already, firstly acting in cult 90s imaginary glam biopic Velvet Goldmine, then making sampladelic electronica as The Bowling Green before becoming a solo artist. This latest incarnation clocks in somewhere between punk and rock - you'll notice almost but not quite actionable appropriations of well-known Kinks, Beatles and early Floyd trademarks nestling in between harsher-edged echoes of Magazine, Jam and Buzzcocks. There are impressive guests from Specials bassist Horace Panter to Neil Innes, making one of his last appearances here, but the real power is in the observational lyrics and catchy songs, and the well drilled power of the Mellotronics themselves, with the unrelentingly shitkicking drum style of Nicholas Mackay deserving of specific singling out.

Review: Last year, celebrated experimental rock band Mr Bungle got back together after 19 years in order to return to their mid-80s roots as a thrash metal band. They headed out on tour, performing sets based on their mythical and near legendary 1986 demo-only album The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny. Now they've gone one further and re-recorded the album, this time in a professional studio, with the assistance of former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax guitarist Ian Scott. Now finally released, the set is raucous, insanely energetic and ludicrously heavy, with original mic man Mike Patton (now better known for being part of Faith No More) growling aggressively atop fuzzy, head-banging riffs, booming bass and some seriously loose-limbed, high-octane drumming by Lombardo.

Review: When is a bonafide heavy metal classic not a bonafide heavy metal classic? How about when the recording is of such poor quality many find it unlistenable, so very few heard the album. Such is the case with The Raging Wrath..., the 1986 debut LP from cult guitar experimenters Mr. Bungle, which is now getting a re-release to mark a reactivation of the outfit after 20 years of dormancy.

Returning to those early, raw tapes, the record remains pretty much untouched save for one significant difference - here the work is polished and primed for even the most discerning 21st Century ears, thanks to original members Mike Patton, Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn, alongside ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax's Scott Ian. If polished is really the right word. It's loud, chaotic, and impossible to predict, it's blood, sweat and tears spilled from the bowels of thrash before thrash was really a subgenre.

Review: It has been a bumper year for any PJ Harvey fans somehow still missing her classic records from their collection, with the 20 year anniversary of Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea catalysing a slew of re-releases. This is probably one of the most important, her debut collaboration with fellow English alt-rocker John Parrish - a truly seminal recording.

At the time it was such a meeting of minds it's often difficult to know where one artist starts and the other stops, they're so musically in tune. It might be grubbily rolling around in grungy operatics ('Urn With Dead Flowers In A Drained Pool'), dominated by a weirdly uplifting, shrill blues discordance ('Rope Bridge Crossing'), or feel like a funeral service for lo-fi keyboardists ('Is That All There Is'). Either way, it was all incredibly different and is all still genuinely incredible.

Review: The Smashing Pumpkins' transformation from melodic alt-rock deities to synth-driven electronic boppers is complete. Well, almost. The titular single certainly fits that easy narrative, laser beam chords and string refrains bursting from behind a track that bounces with a light disco punk energy. In truth, of course, there has always been far more to Bill Corgan et al than the alternative rock tag often implies, and even right back to their formative years the crew were toying with expectations.

2018's Rick Rubin-produced Shine And Oh So Bright... album may have emphasised their rock roots, but now we're given their creative juices in full flow on their poppiest outing yet, partly inspired by the roster of seminal Chicago label Wax Trax!, the US home to Underworld and The KLF among others. Needless to say, though, the Pumpkins make it sound like they've lived here all along; testament to their unwavering dedication to trying new ideas and knack at pulling them off.

Review: Long-serving experimental folk band Tunng reportedly put a lot of thought into the subject matter and lyrics behind their new album, Dead Club. According to their label, the set is part of a wider project the band have started in order to spark wider conversations about death and grief. Given all that has happened in 2020, it's arguably more relevant than ever, and the fact that the London band is able to tackle the subject is a surprisingly positive and musically ear-catching way is particularly impressive. As usual, the album delivers a blend of traditional, acoustic, electric and electronic instrumentation, with vibrant vocals providing the ear-catching focal point atop an attractive and imaginative musical mixture. We can't decide whether it's their best album to date, but it's certainly hugely enjoyable.

Review: Somebody left the gate open... The Wytches' label describe them as 'swampy', and there's something in that term. Known to those who know as a rock band that lunge, wobble and ooze in equal measure, it's easy to picture some beast or other slowly emerging from the quagmire whenever you're tuning in, and Three Mile Ditch is doing that reputation no disservice.

Scuzzy, slimy and frequently screaming hard rock 'n' roll that sounds like it's about to bust a gut before descending into an even sleazier and deeper version of itself, so much of what's here could be dubbed an earworm by the time the halfway point arrives it's hard to know which way you came in, let alone where the exit is. Don't worry though, getting lost amongst the grooves and grind is a joy in itself.
