  1. Communication Is Key
    by Wholewheat
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Camouflage the Mirage Camouflage the Mirage
    An infectious lo-fi pop album, with dreamy vocals & solid rythmn sensibility, harbouring some background melancholia & tinged with a slight psychedelic tone. Wholewheat has established his own sound & identity, but is confident enough to experiment with various genres. There's tunes which subtly navigate different paths to one another without compromising the flow of the album. From the Beck meets Pet Sounds style of 'Powder Keg' to the grungy folky blues of 'I'm so Alone' or the Air colliding with the Moody Blues feel of 'Communication is Key' there is no deviation from the sound or style. The grainy lo-fi DIY aesthetic only enhances the album, making it honest & credible. Although the songs are spacious & unrushed the album is just about the right length & is full of character & charm
  2. I'm So Alone (The Ballad of Mudflap Williams)
    by Wholewheat
    track 00:00/00:00
    Slightly more downbeat (but good downbeat!) than previous releases. A sweet, folksy slice of Americana, lo-fi style!

  3. Battery Point
    by Battery Point
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Violet Dream Violet Dream
    Accidentally stumbled across this band while checking out San Francisco's Free Paintings.(Ironically Battery Point is of one of my own albums & a lighthouse near me!) This band identify with the C86 Indie scene- they certainly have elements of that bit of alternative music history- jangly guitars, pounding bass & drums, finished with a poppy vocal style & sensibility. However, this band take those elements further, creating their own sonic identity which can only be described as C86 plus!!
  4. goodbye
    by free paintings
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    goodbye goodbye
    What can I say- anything with super-duper art-nik, Whorhaigh K in is fantastic in my opinion! A great couple of psychedelic tinged tunes, reminiscent of the sort of records 4ad were treating us to about 25 years ago. Infectious jangle-pop & effing impressive production!
  5. Powder Keg
    by Wholewheat
    track 00:00/00:00
    This tune has plenty of space to grow and form, nice & unhurried. It has a spacy, dreamlike feel with it's slightly slowcore-style drum patterns and ethereal vocals-not unlike the experimental nuances of bands such as Mercury Rev & the Flaming Lips. There's a subtle melancholy here too, in the lyrics & their delivery-Reminds me of old school Americana-tinged indie, bands like Galaxie 500 and Saturnine 60. A hook filled killer chorus is one of this song's main draws; plus, the effective, economic and simplistic guitar strumming proves that you don't have to go all widdly-diddly with your guitar work to nail a fantastic tune
  6. Erudite Stoner
    by Erudite Stoner
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Waiting for the storm Waiting for the storm
    Beautifully crafted, atmospheric acoustic tunes
  7. Benjamin Blue EP
    by Benjamin Blue
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Coral Coral
    The very foundations of songwriting are challenged in these impressive bunch of tunes, be it from the rich vocal work, the highly original guitar lines or the experiments with time signatures & song construction. To my ears, I wouldn't be able to compare this band to anyone else. Just listen to the pop hooks at odds with sonic experimentation in a song like 'Eliot' & how effective they are. This is truly individual music
  8. À POIL DIGITAL 006

  9. Demo
    by Almost Aimless
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Tonight Tonight
    I downloaded this because it reminded me straight away of lo-fi punk bands that have been an inspiration for my own tunes, namely Gaunt, Black Flag & Minor Threat. These two tracks are a nice, short, sharp shock!
  10. Out Of Step
    by Minor Threat
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Betray Betray
  11. Don't Piss On Me, I'm Already Dead
    by Crywank
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Love Love
    Crywank are constantly evolving. With this new album they retain the DIY feel & all the emotional clout of the previous recordings. However, something mighty is happening with this band that sets them apart from other lo-fi bands- the unashamed soul-baring, the effortless creativity, the hooks and ideas which make you think, 'I wish I'd thought of that!' This recording, I think, is their best- the production is spacious and atmospheric & has ambience and depth. Just listen, ok?!
