Anticipated follow-up from London indie rockers econoline whose début album, “Music Is Stupid“, garnered plaudits far and wide from Kerrang! to The Independent, Germany to Japan.

Resulting in this 11 tracker that shows an exploitative, more developed, sophisticated and mature econoline, that can still take you to the rock.

Following praised debut “Metacomet” (“Laconic and beautiful” – [Q Magazine]), our Boston boys have cranked the dial for their long awaited follow-up to produce a more up tempo, high energy and in your face sound. Recorded in part by Dave Auchenbach at his Pain & Pleasure studios (Lightning Bolt, Black Dice), it’s time to remember what all the fuss was about.
Follow-up single to the fantastically poppy “Donnie” and taken from the uniquely beautiful “Micropolitan” album. “Death Song” takes a melancholic turn as the band continue to charm with their lilting vocals and ethereal guitars. RCA graduate Ebba Erikzon, whose recent works includes 2 short films for Radiohead, animated the eclectic video promoting this post pop gem from these Norwegian lovelies. Now an enhanced CD, this extended play single features “Death Song“, 3 additional new and exclusive tracks, plus the aforementioned video; and is all packaged up in a lovely printed cardboard wallet.

Both elegant and warm, and evoking a feeling of youthful innocence. Caroline Nesbø’s voice is haunting and emotive, backed to the hilt with care-free pop tunes and quiet melodies, which caress the listener’s eardrums. “Slickly cool yet frail and delicate” [The Fly], “Micropolitan” is jam-packed with songs that could make a hardened criminal hark back to childhood days of riding a new bike through the park; includes recent single “Donnie“, an outstanding slice of quirk-pop perfection.
One of the first albums produced by ‘super producer’ Paul Epworth, whose production credits include many successful UK acts, including Bloc Party, The Futureheads, Babyshambles, Maxïmo Park, The Rakes and Kate Nash.
Arriving just in time for ice cream, days in the park, and the rest of summer, “Donnie“is a stunning pop paean to teenage yearning, young imagination and fan worship (of Donny Osmond!).
With its punchy indie pop dynamism, sweetly shimmering melodies and lilting vocals, “Donnie” is likely to land it in many critics’ singles of the year charts. A worthy addition to any playlist, or record collection and previews the band’s debut album “Micropolitan“.

“Music Is Stupid” is the long awaited, much anticipated debut album of London based alt indie rockers econoline. “Lovers of classic pop songs, but with a hardcore heart beating not so secretly underneath“. The album marks econoline‘s third release for Seriously Groovy, and follows the success of their singles “Breakfast Of Champions” (NME and Kerrang! reviews, BBC Radio 1 play) and “I’m Plagued” (Xfm‘s John Kennedy and BBC Radio 1‘s Steve Lamacq & John Peel play).
“econoline threaten to explode into something more ramshackle or noisy, but the gentle flow of emotion holds sway with wonderful warm vocal harmonies, sometimes breaking into a burst of tense muscular riffage“. Quiet, loud, quiet. Think Braid, Built to Spill and The Get Up Kids. “Music Is Stupid” features 10 tracks including new single “Full Tar” and a whole bunch of other top tunes. Music IS stupid unless it’s this good.
“Full Tar“? Full on more like. Taken from the band’s imminent debut album “Music Is Stupid“, this single follows up the highly acclaimed “I’m Plagued“. econoline also appeared alongside Kids Near Water, JimmyEatWorld, Hundred Reasons and Jetplane Landing on Fierce Panda’s “Mosh & Go” ep. Having notched up some 70 UK gigs so far and countless other split indie releases, they have a loyal fanbase eager to champion the band’s official releases. Unstoppable!

Yet another stonking slice of yanker lo fidelity that will continue to establish Boston outfit Emetrex as the stars and stripes of the Sparklehorse, Grandaddy, Lambchop stable. Emetrex deliver a radio friendly plastic platter on CD single, after a recent UK trip, which saw the band appear all over the country to massive acclaim and media support. Following-up their beautiful debut long player “Metacomet” and previewing a new batch of material leading to a second album later this year. Whilst you can’t stand taller than the Curve of the Earth, Emetrex prove you can fly!

The contentious Mother Goose produce their first album for Seriously Groovy, resplendent in it’s digipack cover. A hysterical, fantastic, artsy, noisy, snow-shoed, crazed, and anticipated, very Finnish long player. Following on from last years “Little Richard” mini-album, “bears a resemblance to the creations of Nick Cave during the more bizarre and freakishly surreal moments” – [Rock Sound]. It’s dark, sombre and sweet as molasses, and also contains the latest single “Village“. Close friend, Jimi Tenor, is rumoured to be working on future recordings.
“I’m Plagued” marks Econoline‘s second release for the Seriously Groovy label Infur, and follows the success of their single “Breakfast Of Champions” (NME and Kerrang reviews, BBC Radio 1 play). Econoline proudly wear their influences on their sleeves with “I’m Plagued“, although this time the title track has a slightly more grunge feel about it, bringing to mind groups like Dinosaur Jr and Mudhoney, which compliments their other comparisons Husker Du, Pavement, The Get Up Kids and The Cure. This single comes on a 3-track CD with “Too Much Sleep” and “YourName“, and has already picked airplay from Xfm‘s John Kennedy and BBC Radio 1‘s Steve Lamacq. “Investigate now” – [Kerrang!]

“Whispered emotions and slow burning guitars dominate this inspired debut from the heart warming Emetrex” – [RockSound]. A captivating album, Emetrex‘s enchanting eclectism melds droning guitars, simple drum licks, booming bass & samples to a pleasing hypnotic slant that the fey lonely kid at the back of the class would have loved. A beautifully-controlled piece of yank psychedelia on the wavelength of Mercury Rev, Grandaddy, Wheat & all those other bands your mates have never heard of. Following-on from “The Birds Your Brothers” EP, it includes the singles “King of Animals” and “Staring at the Stone“.
“Sounding like Dinosaur Jr, Get-Up Kids and The Cure swiping at swarms of bees” NME, “Breakfast Of champions” is the first Seriously Groovy release for Econoline, who only formed a year earlier. Having already toured alongside everyone worth mentioning, they have been likened by Sleazenation, the pied piper of national lifestyle magazines, to the god like Husker Du. “…and they’ve certainly got the guitar pummelling dynamics to go with such a comparison” – [Kerrang!]
On this release we are treated to the first of many records that fly the flag originally carried by the likes of Built To Spill,Pavement and Codeine.
Launched as a hint to the forthcoming debut album from which it’s taken, 3 beautiful songs take you on a hypnotic journey into the sublime hallucinogenic dreamscape that is Emetrex.
It picked up rave reviews in NME & Melody Maker and was playlisted by Xfm, BBC London Live & Student Broadcast Network, who all recorded live sessions with them during their UK trip early 2001.
Forget fellow pond-hoppers Lambchop, Grandaddy, & Sparklehorse, “Emetrex operate on a deeper level, burrowing into layers of loops & fuzzy effects to emerge with something both richly sonorous & gravely sad” – April Long, NME.
A brave single from Helsinki’s artnoise 3 piece Mother Goose that follows-up their “Little Richard” EP. “We think Village is a powerful song that will open the ears of the listener and the Radio DJ” they tell us – and we agree! Not content with the normal ‘poppy’ single formula, the band continue to stretch your perceptions and deliver three tunes, with a crushingly beautiful ballad as the title track and the bands Christmas anthem “Born Kind, Christmas Time” to play you out. Cracked, for sure – but complete genius you will admit.
Originally released October 2000, Emetrex followed-up their widely acclaimed debut EP “The Birds Your Brothers” with an incredibly catchy single entitled “King of Animals“. Immediately picking up airplay notably on Xfm and BBC regional radio, the single received rave reviews in the week of release from both the NME and also the Melody Maker, who went on to feature the record in it’s “This Issue’s Soundtrack” section for an unprecedented second week!
On this record Emetrex turn up the bpm on the drum tracks and toughen up their samples and guitars, to deliver a song that sticks in your brain like glue. Get this one out of your head if you can pop pickers. The single was re-released in November 2001 as it seemed too good a single to let go by quietly.

Why does the title track bear no relation to its namesake? You may well ask! But asking is the point. The enigmatic Mother Goose, ex Blast First, strike out with their first solo release for some time. And they want you to question. The title track is a slow and dark Nordic romp that picks up pace into the highly acclaimed “Cocaine Mirror“. Each track is a classic, but then any band whose recordings were released alongside one time label mates Sonic Youth, would be expected to produce classics! Check out top tune “Nag” as played by Steve Lamacq at BBC Radio 1′s Evening Session and John Kennedy at Xfm.
Of whisperings, alienation, lesser moments, murmurings and rumours. Of scratching, falling sound, love, wire, work, worry and effort. Mastered by Jeff Lipton in Boston, who also did Wheat‘s recent success ‘Hope and Adams‘. Emetrex produce mellow waves of sound, forced together with cracked lyrics of wire, birds and bondage. Samples, guitars, basic drum rhythms and effects carry you on a dreamlike journey of irritatingly catchy melodies.This debut record brought Emetrex their first NME press, thanks to the then Kitty Empire‘s ‘ON’section.

This is undeniably the most power packed, sex, drugs and rock n roll unit this side of “Pappa’s Got A Brand New Bag“. The 1min 20sec title track kicks straight in. At just over 1min, there is no time to waste. It features a classic Ramones style guitar intro overpinned with the immortal words Uuuh… Come On… to finish on a throat ripping Aaaaaaaaah! The last track “Right On” is a classic, features real Masey Horn style brass and really is as Funky as Funk …

He has a spangley silver suit and a direct line plugged into those that like Sebadoh, Pavement, Scott 4, Beck or Dinosaur Jr. The ship he arrives in will have No Wings Fins or Fuselage and the means of transmision will be by “Electris“.
Featuring some exclusive tracks, it’s a taster of the second No Wings… album entitled “The Other Side Of The Sky” released at the start of 2000, it’s a space odyssey. “Electris” brought No Wings… to the attention of John Peel at BBC Radio 1, who continued to play it for the next 8 months!

A phenomenal follow-up to their remarkable debut “Volume“. This record takes a giant leap forward. Crashing Big Beat Elecronica Industrial that bangs out of your woofers and shunts you about the dance floor like a demented arse. Bold, pioneering and totally teeth shattering. INHALER are set to build on their already faithful following. “Chang” is sure to please …
**Stop Press!!** “Chang” was voted 27th best album of 1999 by the respected Rock Sound national glossy music magazine beating Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Metallica, Deus, Suicidal Tendencies, Atari Teenage Riot, Underworld and Travis, making “Chang” an all time classic record.

Totally charming and of it’s time, this record is collectable…

Here’s an album that’s totally out of this world. It’s got a Lo-Fi sound that will make your oh-so expensive Hi-Fi crackle. It’s that energy that makes it so cool. It’s sort of like the Frank Black crossed with Dinosaur Jr. Be warned, this album contains those type of songs that stay in your head!
No Wings… initially attracted double page colour interviews in national UK, German and US press on the strength of preview cassettes! So sit back and enjoy the sound of heart felt naked love for everything green, slimy and from another planet.
1. Go Team!
A lovely shiny piece of wax, “Go Team!” is taken from the album “This Band Isn’t Funny Anymore” and backed with “29/10/02“. Also released as a download single, this super limited edition 7″ (only 300 copies) was only previously available at the bands gigs. We’ve managed to get hold of some for you here. Perhaps uncharacteristically of the band, “Go Team!” starts out with an acoustic guitar and an accordion! It breaks into a peeling, church chiming melody – bitter sweet, yet filled with hope – before finally building to more familiar econoline territory. “Go Team!” proves that their album “This Band Isn’t Funny Anymore” offers more than a few surprises.

It’s who you know not what you know, you know. Think Royal Trux, The Sex Pistols, Primal Scream and Nirvana in one… Lo-Fi… forget that, this is No-Fi… and it’s f**kin great …

A monster of a debut from the UK’s guitar techno pioneers, who complement their bass, drums, guitar / vocals line up with an excessive use of samples and drum loops. They have a sound which could be compared to a cross between Korn, early Therapy? and the Chemical Brothers. Inhaler’s “Volume” is superb …
