Interview: They’re Talking About You Again, Erland & The Carnival.

…o make ends meet – as most labels do these days – but they’ve always been very supportive, and very eager. Which makes it very easy for the bands on the label to do what they want to do. Were we to go to a bigger independent label – never mind a major label – there would be so much more pressure [put upon us] to look, or sound a certain way; but with Full Time Hobby, we’ve been completely left to our own devices, allowing us to do whatever we…So on & so forth…

Interview: Changing Faces, Craft Spells.

…perlink me to other bands, were gonna happen. I was prepared for it, and I’m OK where it is now. I’m really happy, actually.” However, on the topic of Captured Tracks, and having spoken to a number of Vallesteros’ so-called ‘labelmates’, all of whom have always been not only happy, but also keen to commend the efforts of Mike Sniper et al., the reality that the Brooklyn indie is not only ready, but also willing to take chances is made manifest…So on & so forth…

Interview: Babblin, Celebration.

…in the end, was indeed Bella Union. But even when a suitable nest had at last been located, the album’s incubation took “a while,” and it was then that the whole process first began to frustrate. “Bella Union is a very busy label – they’re putting stuff out all the time – but when they said, ‘Yeah, we’d love to put out this record’, we were like, ‘Awesome!’ Then they were like, ‘But… it’ll be next summer…’ And we were like, ‘[Long,…So on & so forth…

Review: Merchandise, After The End.

…irst began to make waves on this side of the pond, it became apparent that we were dealing with a good band. However, with After The End – their first full-length effort to have been released in cahoots with seminal UK indie label, 4AD – it would appear we’re contending with what is an incontrovertibly very good, if not a great one. ‘The project’ may be ‘equal parts punk misanthropy, maudlin balladeering, fine art, low humor, classical study,…So on & so forth…

Review: Ariel Pink, pom pom.

…f indie credibility – the fabled tale of Animal Collective’s initial discovery of a CD-R containing early recordings in their tour van is now the stuff of low-fidelity legend. But now, with a substantial number of albums and label changes behind him, Pink is beginning to lose his lustre… pom pom is his third release on 4AD, and by now, Pink is an infamous fixture in the music press. As of last week, coverage of Mark Kozelek’s pointless…So on & so forth…

Review: Caribou, Our Love.

…gh release of 2010. Of course, the London-dwelling Canadian has never been one to rest on his laurels, and has toured incessantly, reconfigured the similarly celebrated Caribou Vibration Ensemble and inaugurated his very own label, Jiaolong, since. He’s also – and this point is imperative within the context of this latest endeavour – released a record of that same name under the Daphni pseudonym, shuffling into a more dance-orientated realm in…So on & so forth…

…before. “The more they tell me what feminine pop music should look like, the more I want to fuck shit up!” she then roars in a mood demonic enough to scare both RiRi and Katy Perry at once, before she’ll lazily revile major label advisors and the like in one of an innumerable number of anti-industry diatribes. As she does so, she tears out her (artificial) hair and hurls lager over the baying throng – a Stella Artois, unapologetically pilfered…So on & so forth…

Interview: Pleasant Hearts, Ought.

…le. And we don’t consider ourselves a ‘genre band’, anyway; I don’t think we feel like we have to make a certain sort of music for the next record. We have a sound, based on playing together, but Constellation is not a genre label anyway, and that leaves us a lot of room to do what we want to do; to be that bit more open with creative pursuits, or whatever.” Among the more creative of quips that Beeler has committed to record, however, is one…So on & so forth…

Review: Super Furry Animals, O2 Academy Brixton.

…ason left to smile.” Indeed, at the end of a week in which the British public royally botched up yet another General Election, with there seemingly being rather more ‘dark days’ than ‘light years’ now headed our way upon the horizon, tonight is as meet and right a time as any to escape the precarity of reality – whether this should be political or otherwise – to instead celebrate one of the bands that have made, and will hopefully continue to…So on & so forth…

Review: Thursday, Primavera Sound 2014.

…ldwide allure – that if it continues at this same exponential rate of expansion, then its Heineken and Sony-endorsed stages could soon make Glastonbury’s iconic Pyramid Stage out to look like an insignificant blip on a boggy horizon. There are no bogs – neither quagmire nor grotty toilet – to be seen nor smelt here, although the air is thick with the ambrosial whimsies of Real Estate come Thursday’s early evening. Their blasé soft-rock shtick is…So on & so forth…
