Dog, Paper, Submarine : TROUBLE ON EARTH [none]

“Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Martin Månsson Sjöstrand (vocals and guitar), Emil Engblom (bass) and Carolina Carlbom (drums and vocals), Dog, Paper, Submarine’s third Small Bear release may be their catchiest and most immediate yet. Recalling the sound of indie-rock’s golden era, the band have been favourably compared to the likes of Guided By Voices, Pavement and Sebadoh, whilst retaining a recognisable sonic identity of their own. Packing 8 songs into 20 minutes, Trouble On Earth veers from propulsive, fuzzed-up rock to janglier, sometimes more downbeat fare, making unexpected detours but always packed with inviting melodies. Existing fans of the band (and frontman Martin’s lo-fi side project This Heel) will not be disappointed, as everything that has made previous releases great is present here, with enough fresh twists and turns to make this record a vital addition to their catalogue.”

Reptilians From Andromeda : Sonic Rabbit Hole [Small Bear Records]

“Formed by Aybike Çelik Özbey (Vocals) and Tolga Özbey (Guitar/Bass) in Istanbul, Turkey and joined by Johnny the Tramp (Drums), the band describe their music as No-Wave/Garage/Post-Punk, recorded and produced with a do-it-yourself attitude. Released just in time to soundtrack the return of spring, the EP will be perfect for listening to as the weather improves, or for taking your mind off the rain if the sun is reluctant to return! Five tracks of upbeat and melodic (not to mention sometimes downright strange) indie-rock akin to the likes of The Raveonettes (but with more animal noises!), give ‘Sonic Rabbit Hole’ a chance and we think you might just find yourself with a new favourite record, and band.”

Tigerberry : Spirit Kit [SCL143]

“The first band’s full-length album was compiled from the original songs captured between 2009 and 2012. It depicts the development of their distinctive sound and the starting point. The title Spirit Kit shows the idea behind the recording: each song itself is a key to a particular spiritual mood. The soundscape was designed in a very spontaneous and natural way. Nobody planned to release this record, and yet it became the organic 8 track statement that had been gathered from a vast band’s catalogue of singles, outtakes and demos. Serious changes and re-recordings were excluded on purpose to deliver the purest feel and tension behind the music. Remastered by the wizard from Binomial Records. The beauty of layering and reserved power reveals itself in an unexpected way through repeated listening.”
