This Week’s Records


It’s a good week for singles, but there’s a cracking album out too. Here’s the new releases.

Night Noise Team – You Won (single) Touched on this one in the round up reviews the other week. It’s a big disco dancefloor monster, and gets a large Aye Tunes stamp of approval. Released today through all the usual download places, and Bandcamp.
French Wives – Me Vs Me (single) We like this one a lot too. New single from the band that make me sing songs on the night bus, available on CD and download. Why not go along to LOVEmusic later today to see the band do an instore performance and buy the single there?
Camera Obscura – The Nights Are Cold (single) Twee pop loveliness, as usual. The A-side is a cover of the Richard Hawley song, while the flip side has a remix of The Sweetest Thing by Hawley himself. Out on 7″ and download.
The Whisky Works – Electric (single) Ahead of the (re)release of their debut mini album next week, here’s a new single. This is the song I didn’t like until it turned out all the things I disliked about it were due to a faulty mp3 file, and the song is pretty good, really.
Silver Columns – Cavalier (single) Another teaser for the upcoming Silver Columns album, with a couple of remixes thrown in for good measure. Out on 12″ and download.
Crow Road – What Your Hand Can’t Hold (single) Available from Wednesday, when there’s also a launch gig for the single.
The Red Show – EP (EP, obviously) Not actually a new release, but this is as good a time and place to mention it as any. Over on their (very swanky) website The Red Show are offering a chance to buy their next EP in advance of it being recorded. In return you’ll get the new EP as soon as it is done and a download of their last EP, along with some other unspecified goodies.
The Kays Lavelle – Be Still This Gentle Morning (album) Oops, I’ve still not written my review of this, have I? Short version then – it is really very good. Should be available from record shops across the land on CD, and a download option is on the way too, keep an eye on Wiseblood Industries for more info and buying options.
Maxwell Panther – Lovers reBEL (album) Another album from the prolific and endearingly lo-fi Mr Panther. Available as a pay what you like download on Bandcamp.
I think that’s the lot for this week, tell me if I missed anything.
