Kitchen’s Floor – Battle Of Brisbane
BACK IN STOCK (limited supply)
10 tracks of uncompromisingly nihilistic outsider RnR. Inspired by the indifference of the city the band calls home and the sad events that can happen to the characters within it, Battle Of Brisbane is a bitter ode to existential dread battered through a minimalist punk facade. Recorded by Luke Walsh (Blank Realm) and mastered by Marly Luske, Battle of Brisbane is a uniquely fucked oddity in the modern rock landscape. “Battle Of Brisbane proves there is no-one as fervently potent in producing personal disenfranchisement and disgust.” (The Quietus)
Mamitori Ulithi Empress Yonaguni San – 25/12/2013
Mamitori hides a form of twee pop unwittingly battered by no wave, and whose every chord could be a blank bullet. You could be mistaken for thinking you were hearing My Bloody Valentine pranged by the Shaggs, the Pastels bullyraged by Mars, Pere Ubu holding paws with Swell Maps. Is a new No Tokyo emerging 35 years after No New York ? This live set in front of a ghost-like public serves as a hint of this Japanese band’s profound peculiarity. “The six songs here speak to the mysticism of another Japanese ensemble with as large a reputation as a body of work, Les Rallizes Denudes, but while that group built themselves up over long tracks, Mamitori (the preferred abbreviation) confines itself mostly to 4-5 minute stretches, quickly establishing a melody and a beat, and getting colorful over top.” (Still SIngle)

Wonderfuls – Only Shadows Now
Robert Vagg (Meat Thump, Kitchen's Floor) delivers ten confessionals that drift around tragedies, hopelessness, failed systems, nonconformity, and physical/psychological experiences. Set to the minimalist sparse compositions of Dan McGirr and Natasha Buchanan, whose guitar and synthesizer lines entwine around the bleak lyrics and help paint Robert's world of despair and loneliness. Only more downer, time hasn't healed the wounds, they've only become deeper. The Durutti Column meets Lou Reed's Berlin on this Australian band's second LP, far from their shambolic debut single on Negative Guest List. “Tracks like the stunning “Thieves Who Dream” playing like Flying Saucer Attack shot through a kaleidoscope, pushing all the right buttons over here at SSHQ, and the overall somber Alastair Galbraith/Chan Marshall-esque intonations at stake here are bettered by these rare glimpses of sunlight.” (Still Single)
The Frightening Lights
Soft, caressing and subtly disturbing, Frightening Lights’ songs move like menace through fog. Singer Elizabeth Downey says she first envisioned the songs as a kind of deathbed confession, their violence is carefully suppressed, modulated perhaps through long penitence. Shreds of instrumental sound – a funeral organ, an offkilter accordion, discordant bowing on a borrowed danbo – flit in and out of the peripheries, creating eerie, flickery landscapes around Downey’s sleepy murmurs. “It’s a strong mix of a contemporary sound offset in traces of the avant-garde, and though the comparisons to Mazzy Star and Opal are strong, they don’t detract from what this duo has to offer.” (Still Single)
Sky Needle – Debased Shapes
Fresh from the post office's this bizzaraty that was recorded by a group that actually made all of their own instruments! If you think that this act is something like those wacky early-sixties instrumental groups whose members actually crafted their guitars and drums in their high school woodshop class you are mistaken, because Sky Needle's wares are what you would call extremely “unconventional” electronics, string things and percussives that have a rather non-traditional clank to 'em. They even make the Junkyard Band on FAT ALBERT sound like Miles. Top that off with a femme vocalist who sing-songs around the resultant spew like that gal on the boffo LEAD SHOES soundtrack and you'll be halfway there. Nothing that really grabs hold of my attention the way similar home-made electronic or outsider recordings might have over the past few decades, but you gotta admit it's one that will separate the true lovers of pure grating sound from the pretenders!

La Ligne Claire – Chéri
Now defunct parisian band with a distinct funky crazy sound that meshes them in a time warp to No New York twangs. La ligne claire were Charlene Darling, Ines Di Folco, Alexandre Kouklia and Fifi (11eme etage).
“There's some seriously throwaway craziness on this mini-lp. Punk is obviously the background for this music, though La Ligne Claire were not born when French hardcore punkers Lucrate Milk were wrapping sellotape around their heads in early 1980s videos. Chéri's ramshackle beats are drawn more from African music than Amphetamines. ” (The Wire)
