"Give It Up" is the opening salvo from the forthcoming new Datarock album, "Red". It's typical Datarock - a brilliant slice of 80s-inspired disco-not-disco / punk-funk pop (complete with typically witty and surreal lyrics) that hooks you in on first listen. It's a short sharp shock that is reminiscent of the post-punk musicality of acts such as The Associates and achieves the fine balancing act of sounding both current and retro. Remixes on this 12" come from Kissy Sell Out (funky discoid electro), Fan Death (speedy indie-electrodisco collision) and Chateau Marmont (electrohouse). I copy found!


... For The Whole World To See

    "… For The Whole World To See", a fresh and inspired early entry in the category of punk rock, is the first full-length release ever for Death. The band only released one 7" single, "Politicians In My Eyes"/"Keep On Knocking", which now sells for $1000 a copy. Inspired by some of classic rock's heroes, Death riff-rocked with minimal leads at maximum heat, a la Fred 'Sonic' Smith or MC5. Following their 1974 demo Death were given an audition with Don Davis, whose chart-topping work with Stax acts Johnnie Taylor and The Dramatics had made him a local celebrity. Davis booked the band into his United Sound Recording Studio, one of Detroit's main destinations for aspiring blues, R&B and soul musicians, and they recorded the tracks that make up this album with engineer Jim Vitti, whose work with Parliament / Funkadelic seemed to inform his decision to record Death in raw fashion with little polish, showcasing the organic power relationships within the trio.

    Death Cab For Cutie

    Something About Airplanes

      Broken Hymns, Limbs And Skin

      New York quintet O'Death's third album, "Broken Hymns, Limbs And Skin", feels like a giddy junkyard hoedown, from the panicked fiddle screeches of opener "Lowtide" to the celebratory gallop of closer "Lean-To". At times it sounds morose or contemplative, but underneath the melancholy is a gospel fervour — bashed from paint buckets, banjos, guitars and anything else in kicking distance — that defines their sound. Since 2007's "Head Home", the band have evolved the possessed Americana-meets-gypsy-punk of recent years into a more urgent, unrelenting celebration of life, death and everything in between. They've grown up a little, but haven't lost the underlying longing or the unruly jubilation in their songs.

      Death Cab For Cutie

      Narrow Stairs

        "Narrow Stairs" follows 2005's Grammy Award-nominated Platinum album "Plans". It is produced by the band's own Chris Walla, who has produced Death Cab's past five albums.


        Sex Death Cassette

          Inspired by influences as diverse as Guided By Voices, R Stevie Moore, Fela Kuti, Lightning Bolt, Fushitsusha, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Cody Chestnutt, "Sex Death Cassette" is an album full of hope, determination and chaos. It'll leave you with sweat dripping down your face onto your swelled lip; fresh, liquid salt, the quintessential flavour of late night post-disco parties and booty slinging good times. After dancing to this album, you're heavy with it, like too much cough syrup on a stomach full of hi-quality sushi. Rafter executes the helter-skelter boogie-down production so gracefully that it is no mystery why those in-the-know recruit him, including the likes of Fiery Furnaces, The Rapture, Arab on Radar, The Album Leaf, Rocket from the Crypt, Danielson, Black Heart Procession, The Peppermints, Hot Snakes, his own band Bunky, and fellow Asthmatic Kitty artists (Castanets, Liz Janes, and Sufjan Stevens).

          Death Of London / Dobermann

          Split 7"

            Death of London – So you want to know about the sceptic's phenomenon know as Death of London eh? Well, they still are mighty young in band terms. Initially conceived at a Methodist Centre gig in September 2006, the tangible form transpired in February 2007 to unleash the dreamt about potential and here it now is. Wow! Aren't figures and facts great? Five or six practices later they only went and recorded "a pound. a bite." at dub:rek studios in derby. Not only did it sound good, field records wanted to put it out on the streets. Dobermann – A fissiped mammal with non-retractable claws squeezed into a 3 piece rock beat combo, have pinned firmly to the mast their riff based wizardry. No spell to difficult cast, no voyage too treacherous to undertake, these men are hell bent on delivering the finest quality riffage this fair and pleasant land can offer. With an unlikely background in Martial arts and Military service, Dobermann create what can be described as 'rock' music, the way it should be, without a can of hairspray, or sniff of spandex in sight. Beware you have been warned.

                Billy Ruffian

                Death Of A Band

                  Debut EP from this Manchester based five piece who've been peddling their own brand of dandy-rock across the city since the start of 2006. The EP features four tracks: the title track is an insight into the chaos of a band hurtling towards destruction, "Preensters" rails against the shallowness and desperation of figures that writhe in the darkness around them, "Leaving Soon" is a heartfelt plea from a character who is trapped in the daily grind of 9 to 5, and the EP finishes with the leftfield pop of "(My Girlfriend Is Like A) Trojan Horse".
