I’m Indie Nile, innit, and my knowledge of the current indie scene is every bit as boom ting as the goals I score for Newcastle United. I’m well up on all the latest releases, you get me, so when I’m not being the official bad man of the Magpies attack I’m like always reviewing albums an’ ting, you know what I mean bruv? I’m the football Zane Lowe, innit blud.
This week I’ll be getting mash-up with new LPs from Madness, Clinic, Jason Lytle and Benjamin Gibbard. Check me now!
Clinic – Free Reign
Clinic are bare weird, you get me? Bare weird. And they all wear like masks an’ ting when they play liiive. I don’t even know what these mans must be on, you get me – they must be all laaahk well stoned, bruv. Their last LP was bare more accessible, but this one’s like all scary and weird, man. In a good way though, innit.

Madness – Oui Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da Da
Whereas Clinic are bare weird, Madness are bare old. Okay, not like bare old like in their eighties or anyfink, but they did some boom ting songs in the ’80s. I love that one that’s all like “our yard, in the middle of the street” – or is it “our drum”? I can’t remember, blaaahd. This has got some good tunes, innit.

Benjamin Gibbard – Former Lives
He was that man from Death Cab For Cutie, innit? And The Postal Service, yeah? That’s proper white man music, know what I mean, bruv? Don’t tell any mans, laaahk, but I quite like it. Those harmonies, blud, they’re well sumptious. You get me?
Indie Nile says… Three Boooooo!s out of Five!
Grandaddy were weird man, they had all these, laaahk, spaceship sounds an’ ting. This kind of sounds a bit like them, you know what I mean? He’s the singer, yeah? Okay, that makes sense then. This is well lush, vibin’ with the strings an’ all that ting, but if I was him I’d put a donk on it. DONK!
Indie Nile says… Two and a Half Shut Up, Yeah?s out of Five!
