Twitter-style catch ups from the November reviewathon featuring anything from tropical safari, woozy ambience, Rubber Soul-style grooves and a band that leave no stone unturned in their search for everything.



Dangermouse and Sparklehorse: Dark Night of the Soul
Double Six/Domino
Extremes collide. In tender & soulful slowies beauty abounds. Raging angst fast ‘uns bomb. Flaming Lips opener worth ticket price alone.
6.5/10

Glasser: Ring
True Panther/On The Shelf Records
Like Fever Ray on safari, all tropical tribal percussion engulfed by soaring Bjorky vocal. Grandiose but not nearly as memorable as its ilk.
6.5/10

Jónsi: Go
Polydor
Sigur Rós chief makes distinctly Sigur Rós-sounding album. Still lovely but injected with English & added POP. Further info: Maximum Balloon.
6.5/10

Everything Everything: Man Alive
Geffen UK
Aptly-named everything & anything jostle for attention amid scattershot yelps, Foals-plinks & catchy hooks. Too many honks but obv promise.
7/10

Peter Broderick: How They Are
Bella Union
Guitar, piano & voice combine to make one of 2010’s most heart-shattering records. Just try getting through this without shedding a tear.
7.5/10
Getintothis label feature on Bella Union featuring Peter Broderick

The Orb vs Dave Gilmour: Metallic Spheres
Columbia
Slow-burning woozy ambience as Gilmour acts as stylistic cameo weaving great little flicks over two tracks & 50ish minutes of fluffy delight
6.5/10

Kelley Stoltz: To Dreamers
Sub Pop
Unexpectedly upbeat cheery pop not unlike Rubber Soul but with a splosh more glam & psychedelia. Perfect for windows-down car journeys.
6.5/10
