Review: RECOMMENDED
We're struggling for many ways to describe Free Advice, aside from 'a genuinely wonderful listen'. The second record from San Francisco-based gems Cindy, it's an outing that remains understated from beginning to end, and yet somehow manages to deliver gritty, gruelling rock 'n' roll, euphoric day-tripping anthems, honest love songs and more.

At the most sedate, 'Seeing Double' sounds like it could almost frighten itself, a cute but damaged, delicate and loose arrangement. 'Wrong Answer' is more like a slap in the face but through a wall of static, fuzzy guitars and a thick layer of white noise helping keep what could be a runaway train in check. Just about. 'Fixed Idea' is bound to make you feel like there's still so much hope to cling to, and is among the most quietly empowering things to sound a bit like Velvet Underground we've had the pleasure of hearing in quite some time.

Review: RECOMMENDED
Often the most apt quotes come from unexpected places. The Great Spans of Muddy Time isn't just a great album title, it's reference to depression, originating from TV gardening legend Monty Don. It has now been re-used for the name of William Doyle's latest album in his post-East India Youth years, which have thus far been marked by a series of blissful instrumental LPs and the excellent, song-focussed Your Wilderness Revisited in 2017.

Things look to combine both here, with The Great Spans of Muddy Time an exceptional example of lo-fi folk-electronica, at times epic and monumental - huge, expansive synth builds - in other moods there's a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone quality to the more rhythmic tracks. An accomplished addition to an already exceptional oeuvre.

Review: It's not without good reason that people have been likening Peel Dream Magazine to My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab and Yo La Tengo. Helmed by Joe Stevens, one of New York's finest contemporary players, the outfit makes music that's tender but savage, powerful but delicate and packed with beautiful discordance hiding its sumptuous melodies. 'Agitprop Alterna' is their second full-length release and it certainly adds fuel to the argument that people need to take this lot very seriously. In addition to the aforementioned, here it nods to Velvet Underground (notice the tripped out, opiate-hazed interludes throughout the album) and krautrock-leaning art pop. The record drones, drives, grooves and perplexes on its course, but most of all it unarguably impresses. Or at least that's what we've got to say on the matter.

Review: RECOMMENDED
It's fitting that The Reds, Pinks & Purples are likely to have flown just under the radar of many rock 'n' rollers. There's a calm, unassuming confidence to everything about the band led by Glenn Donaldson. He's not going to drag you in by the scruff of the neck, sit you down, stick noise cancelling headphones on your bonce, hit play and then watch for a reaction. But he also knows you won't look back after discovering him.

On this, the third Purples album, that feeling couldn't be more pronounced. Melodic vocals feel light enough to bounce off the uptempo numbers like 'A Kick In The Face (That's Life)' and title number 'Uncommon Weather', but then with poetry and proverbial songwriting that can't help but resonate, there's an unmistakable power here too, all wrapped up in joyously jangly, DIY action.

Review: The gold standard Big Crown label excels at heartbreaking Americana, blue-eyed soul and downbeat pop. A 116th release of such sounds now comes from Holy Hive who are back with a new bunch of songs after their 2020 debut album, Float Back To You, won widespread acclaim. Their trademark folk-soul sound is in full view once more here with falsetto vocals bring real heart aching over slow, downbeat drums. It's beautiful stuff that takes the form of two only subtle different singles here. Both wallow in their own sadness and delicateness but leaving a lasting impression.

Review: Another psych-rock album from Toy, one of the few remaining genre acts that haven't faded into obscurity since the revival almost a decade ago? Well, not quite. What they warned us about with "Happy In The Hollow" - the track that preceded this long form - is now inescapable. A band that have discovered a sharper, less forgiving edge wield this powerful, streamlined pop sword and do some real damage. The fact "Songs Of Consumption" is a covers album only makes the stylistic direction more pronounced. If you've heard the originals of tracks like the Stooges' "Down On The Street" or the almost-unknown Nico bomb "Sixty/Forty" you appreciate what's been done here even more. Respectively dancefloor electronica and exotic, dreamy soundscapes in those two cases. Reinventions by the reinvented.

Review: With the mass of TOY material out there we have London label Heavenly to thank, however this latest expedition sees the Brighton act land on Tough Love for the first time, a label straight outta their hometown. Happy In The Hollow presents the band's fourth LP overall and it's an album painting dystopic visions, however inspired to no end. Across the LP we are graced with synths that swoon and chime in unison to ghostly backing chorals, to the more ambient, end of the world strolls through darkened forests ("The Wilo). There are some more traditional UK jangly guitar moments, like "Jolt Awake", or beat down punk trappings of "Energy". Punk meets ends of the earth is here.

Review: RECOMMENDED
It's usually a pretty reassuring sentiment when a band declares that they "never really wanted to sound like this". It tells us everything we need to know about how the end product, stylistically, found them as much as they found it. And how the songs they make are natural and entirely of them. White Flowers' Katie Drew made a similar statement ahead of this, the debut album from a duo comprising her and fellow Prestonian Joey Cobb.

Having discovered London's psyche scene while studying at arts college in the capital, the pair returned north to the bleak wastelands half of England frequently forgets exists. Evidently a good move, as the resulting record doesn't sound like most of London's psyche scene. Instead, it's somewhere between the opiate seduction of Goldfrapp, the understated but intense emotions of Cocteau Twins, and the dark undercurrent of Nadine Shah. You might not agree, but either way give it a play.
