Features, interviews, album, track and live reviews on Clickmusic.

  1. Luxembourg - Front

    Luxembourg - Front

    Luxembourg are a band who aim to make suave, intelligent pop like Pulp but on their debut album they usually end up sounding like long forgotten purveyors of overblown Britpop nonsense My Life Story.

  2. My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade

    My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade

    'The Black Parade' is dark, dramatic and oh so, delicious... the album moves from anthem to anthem, not dwelling on one idea for more than a fraction of a second.

  3. Hot Chip - Over And Over

    Hot Chip - Over And Over

    With the repetition of key phrase 'over and over' over and over again, creating an alliteration for the senses, if nothing else they're adept at reinforcing the idea of the track.

  4. Mumm-Ra - Out Of The Question

    Mumm-Ra - Out Of The Question

    'Out Of The Question' is not merely just another ready-to-be-hyped single, instead it's a new song for the bridge between indie and pop.

  5. Patrick Wolf - Accident & Emergency

    Patrick Wolf - Accident & Emergency

    Who was it that said 'less is more'? We've no idea, but in this instance it rings true: 'Accident & Emergency' is a piece of pie without a succulent enough filling.

  6. SixNationState - Fire

    SixNationState - Fire

    A fantastic mix of rock, punk and ska, 'Fire!' certainly lives up to expectations. The raw vocals wouldn't be out of place in a Dublin pub, and are simple enough to incite a sing along on the first play.

  7. Klaxons - Magick

    Klaxons - Magick

    'Magick' is definitely more indie anthem than Prodigy-esque tabloid-teaser, but it's probably way past questioning all that: what we do know is that it's a sure-fire hit.

  8. Various - Live Lounge

    Various - Live Lounge

    It seems like a good idea; Radio 1's Live Lounge has provided some memorable cover versions in the recent past: 'Naive' as sung by Lily Allen made her latest single 'LDN' as a B-side.

  9. Bauer - EP

    Bauer - EP

    It remains to be seen if Bauer can stand out from the crowd, but it's a decent debut that should cement their fanbase.

  10. Luxembourg - Sick Of DIY

    Luxembourg - Sick Of DIY

    The only question is whether we've heard it all before from Luxembourg, but we're too busy enjoying it to care.

  11. Switches

    On The Buses: October 2006

    We might well know what the music they play sounds like, but what do they listen to between gigs? Clickmusic asked some of our favourite acts right now.

  12. Wolfmother - Love Train

    Wolfmother - Love Train

    Although initially your rock dreams have all been answered at once, the honeymoon period is soon over and you'll be longing for something a bit different.

  13. The Bluetones - The Bluetones

    The Bluetones - The Bluetones

    This eponymous record is such a fantastic collection of genuine, heart-swelling songs, devoid of hidden agenda or pretence, that it would be a loss to the human race if it were to go unnoticed.

  14. Psapp - Hi

    Psapp - Hi

    The melody itself is quite pleasant despite the little connection with the aforementioned Disney film. Singer Galicat Durrant has a pretty nice voice that compliments the tune well.

  15. Milburn - Well Well Well

    Milburn - Well Well Well

    It's not a bad album but it suffers from being hit and miss - the next track could be great, or a bland indie-by-numbers.
