Honey Bucket - Devo Hat
I felt sure we'd had these on before, but apparently not. From Portland, Oregon, the LP Magical World is out next month.
Happy Accidents - Facts And Figures
Definitely had these on before. Off the album You Might Be Right which is out now.
Matt Berry - Obsessed And So Obscure
Yes, that Matt Berry. As well as acting, being funny and all that, he can belt out a tune too. The git. The new album The Small Hours is out in September.
Featured Album: Fabriclive 07 John Peel
Maloko - In The Midnight Hour
The Datsuns - In Love
From the series of live mix LPs from Fabric, John Peel's was notable for his admission that he can't mix. It matters not. What it is is a typically eclectic compilation from the noted taste-maker. Maloko are a pan-African band who covered a number of American classics in a soukou style. The Datsuns are proper New Zealand rock band. Suffice to say that without Peel, I wouldn't be doing this here now.
Hannah Lou Clark - It's Your Love
The Foe singer and guitarist goes solo. This is the title track from her new EP which is out now.
Blaney - Poison Fishes feat. Mark E Smith
Salfordian Ed Blaney teams up with long-time pal Smith on his debut album Urban Nature which came out in May.
Haley Bonar - Kismet Kill
Inventive and unusual stuff from the Minnesota native. Off Impossible Dream which is out on August 5.
Pillow Person - Go Ahead
Sarah Jones is the drummer from Hot Chip and other bands, but goes solo as Pillow Person, this being her first single.
Kingsley Chapman and The Murder - Into The Dark
Middlesbrough's finest chanteur and his band are back with another tremendous single. See them love for a dazzling array of suits.
Loose Meat - Octopus
Beginning to obsess over the self-titled LP. I think that's four tracks we've played off it now.
Featured album: Fabriclive 07 John Peel
Elementz Of Noize - Clock
Drum and bass formed a big part of Peel's show in the latter years. And this one is a belter.
DJ Shadow - The Sideshow feat. Ernie Fresh
A fifth LP from the turntablist arrives in a couple of weeks time. The Mountain Will Fall is the title.
Factory Floor - Ya
More cracking floor-fillers from the LP 25 25 which is out next month.
Muslimgauze - Untitled 1985
More gems from the legacy of Bryn Jones, as prolific 17 years after his death as he ever was alive. This is off a split EP with Italian band Underspreche.
