Elika – “Always The Light”


Record Label: Saint Marie Records
Genre: Ambient/Lo-Fi
Band Link: elikamusic.com
Buy on Amazon.com

Slowly and calmly unraveling soundscapes, “Always The Light” is great accompaniment to reading, office work, or zonking out. While it straddles singer/songwriter and indie lo-fi realms, the unwaveringly unhurried pace are firmly ambient.

Record Label: S/R
Genre: Lo-Fi
Band Link: www.myspace.com/stripmallarchitecture
Buy on Amazon.com

Yay, the second part to this album is out! I loved the first five-song installment (see review: http://www.readjunk.com/reviews/cdreviews/stripmall-architecture-feathersongs-for-factory-girls/). Be warned, shoegazers: Part Two is a more upbeat affair.

Record Label: S/R
Genre: Lo-Fi
Band Link: www.myspace.com/stripmallarchitecture
Buy on Amazon.com

Atlantic Manor – “Slow Drugs And Other Sorrows”


Record Label: Do Too Records
Genre: Lo-Fi

Another slow, inconsequential album from these unpretentious sadsacks. Turtle-paced, looping instrumentation, minimal vocals, and some seriously long durations make this a very hard album to slog through.

No Bunny – “Love Visions”


Record Label: 1234 Go Records
Genre: Garage Rock
Buy on Amazon.com

Who would have thought I would be ending up reviewing a CD by a guy who wears a rabbit mask and dresses up like the Ramones? How very Easter-ish. No Bunny delivers lo-fi, loud, raucous, garage & punk rock music that will make you dance like Elvis. Or it will make you want to takes lots of drugs and die on the shitter like Elvis. Depends on how much you can tolerate of No Bunny.
