Incendiary interview Tunng

Well it's going to interesting with our next record because we are a six piece band now and it's going to mean a new way of working.

Incendiary interview The Siege

Lincolnshire, it's big and shit and I hate it.

The Julie Mittens, Stiff River, Uw Hypotheekadvies - “Blue” EP

Three small cut and paste low-resolution photocopied sheets of paper give minimal information on the bands. We learn only that Uw Hypotheekadvies have "great legs".

Jukebox Buddha

A word of explanation: Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian came up with the idea of selling a version of the machine used in Buddhist temples to assist prayer.

John Fahey - Sea Changes and Coelacanths (A Young Person's Guide to John Fahey)

Fahey playing an electric guitar might not have caused the sensation that Dylan did when he went electric, but in the smaller waters of Fahey's world there was still a great deal of disapproval.

Yo La Tengo - I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass

So – I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Kick Your Ass is clearly too long and a couple of tracks could have been ditched to drag it in under the hour mark. Having said that, the tracks to be chucked would still be bloody great.

Songs of Green Pheasant - Aerial Days

It's not easy to put this album into words, but perhaps cosmic folk pop might give some indication of the sounds contained within.

Joanna Newsom - Ys

Utterly unlike anything else you'll hear, it is a brave, barking mad and beautiful album.

F.S. Blumm - Summer Kling

I just wish there was still a bit of the anarchism evident in his early work

Oxford Collapse - Remember the Night Parties

I suspect that fun power pop/rock is something they want to expand upon. On the evidence of this rather prosaic workout I'm not sure they should bother

Wolf Eyes - Human Animal

This is extreme music; certainly as extreme as anything that has been reviewed on Incendiary before.

Sunn0))) & Boris - Altar

Play their music quietly and what should be the sound of the gates of hell opening becomes that of a mis-firing vacuum cleaner
