The third single to be lifted from their Favourite Worst Nightmare LP, Arctic Monkeys' 'Teddy Picker' lacks the fury of 'Brianstorm' and the eloquence of 'Fluorescent Adolescent' but nonetheless makes for a superior three minutes of guitar pop, featuring Alex Turner's magnificently precocious turn of phrase launching barbed comments toward the industry and plenty of high quality jerk-rock riffing to wash it down. The B-sides are especially noteworthy here; you get a cover of Pat Farrell & The Believers' 'Bad Woman', featuring fellow Sheffielder Richard Hawley on vocals, plus further r… Read more

'Tomorrow' is released to coincide with their Planetarium Of The Soul tour, a project launched in conjunction with animator Clemens Habicht, designed to merge live music and animation into a single strange performance. 'Tomorrow' finds the band on top form, with a hooky verse melody that's really capitalized upon by the superb DFA remix, which throws clavinets, moogs and all manner of other additional elements in the direction of the song, concocting a lo-fi, slow disco track that's pretty hard not to fall for.

Lucky this is a Franz Ferdinand side-project because I was just about to call it out for ripping of the Glaswegian art-rockers for everything they've got, but since they share a drummer I guess it's not important any more. Correcto also features a bloke from now disbanded punkers The Royal We, but to be honest this is likely to sell on the fact that Correcto know how to put together some very convincing indie dancefloor hits, just like their more widely known brethren. With tracks as arresting as the opening hit 'Inuit' and 'Joni' they've likely found what they're good at, but I can't help thin… Read more

Is it just us, or do the Arctic Monkeys sound suspiciously like a modern version of George Formby...? Fit to burst with glottal stops and South Yorkshire idiolect, the Monkey boys have seemingly hit it big without subjecting themselves to the standard industry-schematic; a situation which has engendered them to the nation's youth and prompted a lexical-masturbation session on the part of the broadsheets to rival a new bout of Tory sleaze. Taut, frenetic and with a keen sense of wit, songs like 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' and 'Mardy Bum' have… Read more

With their forthcoming album garnering a full-fat 10/10 in this week's NME, it's a real challenge not to hate Arctic Monkeys on moral grounds before even hearing a note of 'When The Sun Goes Down'. But such pettiness leads one way and one way only; headfirst into a Mojo subscription... In possession of a Sheffield accent thicker than a breadcake, the taut guitars pepper the lead vocals with jerkiness galore; sounding much like last single 'Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor', but with a polemical bite that lends proceedings a far darker hue. Whilst the gentrification of … Read more

A taster of his first full-length for Domino (the forthcoming Dropping The Writ), Cass McCombs' 'That's That' is an eloquent '80s-style affair with African-influenced electric guitar parts a la Paul Simon's Graceland and a spacious production held together by an upbeat, rubbery bassline. The spotlight belongs to McComb's effortlessly beguiling vocals however, which cruise along on an ocean of reverb and multitracked layers. On the B-side you get 'Healing (Piano Version)' an incredibly simple ballad on which McCombs' delivery conjures up images of a less showy Rufus Wainwright.

A perfectly paced, perfectly structured album that feels like a first masterpiece - mood, melodic, soundtrack, jazz music for the new millennium with the ghosts of Duke Ellington and Miles Davis. Wells collaborates with Stephen and Katrina of Pastels fame, showing his love for a great avant pop tune. Belle and Sebastian revere Bill Wells after numerous live performances together.

Unveiling their latest signing, Domino presents the first single from Los Angeles quartet Chief. 'Breaking Walls' is a lightly melancholic slice of summery, West Coast pop. At first, all this seems fairly unassuming - from the monosyllabic band name to the disarmingly gimmick-free arrangement, Chief are just a sweet sounding soft-rock band. Calling upon great vocal harmonies and crystalline guitar melodies, both the A-side itself and B-side 'Your Direction' prove to be classy, if pretty trad, showcases for Chief's talents.
