Beach House singer Victoria Legrand must be bored rigid with reviewers continually mentioning that her music sounds like the ethereal lovechild of gauzy indie forebears Galaxie 500 and Mazzy Star. Granted, reiterating the platitude won’t help, but consider this a valediction; a way of drawing a line in the...

In 1966 Brian Wilson almost single handedly created Pet Sounds , an ambitious and groundbreaking piece of work a long way from the Beach Boys successful surf songs. His reward was a response from his bandmate and general bete noir Mike Love that he shouldn't “f*** with the formula”. The...

Four years since his last album – 2003's critically acclaimed Volume 4 – Joe Jackson returns with arguably his most consistent collection yet. Recorded in his adopted hometown of Berlin, Rain represents a career culmination of work – shifting effortlessly between styles, and underpinned by the highest calibre...

The Sensual World is unmistakeably of the eighties, but thankfully, due to the inventiveness and sophistication of the sound, it’s aged a thousand times better than either shell suits or Bros. Kate Bush’s ethereal, unmistakeable voice equally enchants and divides audiences, but its uniqueness, and the daunting ambition of...

Any fan of Love (and Arthur Lee), and a fan of vinyl and all the sonic possibilities that it provides, could agree that the best experience of Arthur Lee’s original line-up would have been the third and seminal Forever Changes on your turntable, fresh out of the plastic of a...

What an utterly unpredictable career Mike Patton has enjoyed. Plucked from obscurity in 1989 to front Faith No More, his first album with the group, The Real Thing, scored commercial success with its hook-laden, brashly absurd rap-rock. Several years of touring later, however, and formerly...

Want a record to make your hi-fi sing? Easy to get? Cheap? Pick up this one. It turns up in every 2nd hand record shop here for a few euro. That's on the European side of the Atlantic. I don't know how ubiquitous it is on the US side. But...

Sarah seems to be pretty huge in the US but apart from the dance track which was a huge hit here with Delerium, I didn't know anything about her and didn't know what to expect. Based on this album, and Fumbling towards ecstasy/Freedom Sessions I love her. ...
