1. Help She Can't Swim - Kite Eating Tree (Fantastic Plastic) From the new album "The Death Of Nightlife". The band have loads of dates coming up. Check www.myspace.com/helpshecantswim for details.
2. Darren Hayman - Table For One (Track & Field) I was saying just the other day to a friend of mine, "It's a long time since we heard anything from Darren Hayman" He replied "Well apart from The Table For One album at the back end of last year and the Table For One-Dessert Menu EP last month and the new Eastbourne Lights 7" EP I suppose he has". My reply cannot be re-produced here as it would give the more sensitive amongst you nightmares but I did persuade him to lend me his copies until I can get my own and they should be winging their way to my door as we speak. I do like Amazon. This is the title track from the "Table For One-Dessert Menu" EP.
3. Duloks - Bad Vegetarian (Art Goes Pop) 7" EP.
4. Liechenstien - Stalking Skills (Fraction Discs) 7" EP. Perfect pop from Goteborg, Sweden.
5. The Piskie Sits - Lotta Bad Things (Wrath) From the debut album "A Secret Sickliness"
6. Tiger Force - Beat This (Marquis Cha Cha) I've got high hopes for this lot. The debut album "A Wasp In A Jar" will be released on 9th April and this comes from that. The band have a few dates coming up and I think I'll have to make an effort to catch up with them although the closest they come to me appears to be Wakefield. www.myspace.com/tigerforce
7. The Clientele - I Hope I Know You (Merge) I'm tempted to say this is the best Clientele album yet. It's called "God Save The Clientele" and is out 8th May. Perfect summer listning
8. Spacemen 3 - Come Down Softly To My Soul (Fire) Don't know why, I just felt like throwing this one in. I was listening to their"Playing With Fire" album earlier in the week and it still sounds bloody awsome. Every home should have one.
9. Foals - Hummer (Transgressive) New Single. Out 16th April.
10. The Scarlot Harlots - Cats Eyes (Demo) Great name, Great demo.
11. The Maccabees - Tissue Soldiers (Fiction) From the album "Colour It In". Not sure as to the release date but I'll keep you posted.
12. Black Francis - Threshold Apprehension (Cooking Vinyl) I'm sure I'm not alone in being of the opinion that Black Francis or Frank Black or whatever you want to call him had seen better days. Some may even go as far as to call him a spent force. Well here's the news!! Black Francis is back on top form. This is the best album he's recorded in a decade. It's called "Bluefinger" and apparently isn't out until September but surely that can't be right.
13. Dogs - This Stone Is A Bullet (Weekender) New Single.
14. Hadouken - Dance Lesson (?)
15. Bromheads Jacket - What Ifs And Maybes (Marquis Cha Cha) New Single.
