MICHAEL FORREST – SINGLE REVIEW

Michael Forrest – Infinite London (Good To Hear)

Release Date: 10th February 2014

Now this is immediately interesting and appetite whetting to me. I don’t have a lot of info on Michale Forrest – he’s a London based producer who classes his music as unmarketable pop – but I do have a lot of love for his brand of skitchy, jerky, dark electro-pop.

ALGIERS – ALBUM REVIEW

Algiers – You’re The Captain (Xtra Mile Recordings)

Release Date: 27th January 2014

Right, I need to declare a conflict of interests  before I start here. I spent three glorious years in Sheffield gorging myself on a burgeoning music scene that erupted in between Pulp and Arctic Monkeys. As a result, every time I hear of a new band coming along from Sheffield I get all nostalgic and misty eyed before even hearing a note.

THE RIFLES – ALBUM REVIEW

The Rifles – None The Wiser (Cooking Vinyl)

The Rifles – None The Wiser

Release Date: 20th January 2014

I’m not a fan of guns on the whole. If we could at least all go back to swords and axes that would even things out a bit and make American High Schools a whole lot safer – seriously, have you ever tried to lift a broad sword, let alone wield one?

The Rifles, however, are a different prospect however as their main weapon is bouncy, jaunty, indie-pop with a very English sensibility.

Album opener ‘Minute Mile’ is a blend of Franz Ferdinand’s attitude and Maximo Park’s guitars although the vocals seem a little bit low in the mix for an opening statement of intent.
‘Heebie Jeebies’ is more in the vein of the Fratellis in that it’s a step up from McFly but still a bit indie-lite for my liking. The rumbling drums that herald the beginning of ‘Go Lucky’ are a thing of beauty and the song that then unfolds is a quintessentially English indie tune pitched somewhere between the House Martins and the Libertines, no easy feat.
Taking a more relaxed approach on ‘All I Need’, the Rifles do their best Kooks impression whilst forthcoming single ‘You Win Some’ is a more slick, Radio 2 friendly track that could see the band supporting James Morrison before the year is out.
