Listen intently to the music of James Bentley

And now to the border-country of Cavan, a place I know and love well, having worked there for a few years back in the mists of time. We find 20-year-old singer/songwriter James Bentley releasing his first EP, and a pretty promising debut it is too. James has a warm, heartfelt voice and knows his way…

SAMT – I wue Di / Geh Schleich Di Top bloke Ronnie Pinkau, from the beautiful and musically sizzling town of Augsburg, contacted us this week about a new release on his small but perfectly-formed label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten. “I Wü Di” is a pretty direct lustful get over here now siren call. And who…

Super World Interview Time: Örvar Smárason hits another home run.

Örvar Smárason’s debut solo LP “Light Is Liquid” (Morr Music) is something special indeed, but that is hardly surprising, given he has been a central figure of the Icelandic music scene for more than 20 years.

The Barbiturates

The Barbiturates – Pots N Pans – Look See Fire Rising They’re back, have they ever been away? Not bloody likely. Derry’s arch enigma returns with “Pots N Pans – Look See Fire Rising”, displaying as ever a Joycean lack of respect for both grammar and good taste. It’s like the chant of the ever-circling…

SWIT Premiere: Tom Wu – All You Want

Tom Wu – All You Want We are delighted to premiere the stream of professional provocateur Tom Wu’s new LP. “All You Want” (Cut Surface) is a frenetic, tantalizing trip through the dark underworld of Wu.

I’d buy a round of drinks for the geezers from Lynx

LYNX – Marcas de Fuego EP Here are 2 new tracks from Lynx – “Cicatrices” (Scars) and “Sombras de mi libertad” (The Shadows Of My Freedom). As we have said before the band hail from La Plata, Argentina and they make a pretty cool sound. “Cicatrices” is a low-key, melodic, guitar-driven beauty. Flip-side “Sombras de…

Moods, etudes and attitudes, I love Lonesome Hot Dudes

Lonesome Hot Dudes – Books/Obey (Cut Surface) Agitpop blooms in the fields of Graz. Here is the new double A-side by in your face, anti-capitalism, anti-fascist, pro-tune, pro-noise, super pro-saxophone BAND OF RESISTERS that go by the name Lonesome Hot Dudes. Sounding wonderfully untamed, discordant, caustic, direct and downright funny – this is music made…
