Cinerama – Because I’m Beautiful

I won’t have a word said against Spotify because for one thing it helps me put off the day when I head loftwards and deboxify every one of the several thousand CD’s I bought during a time when free music […] 

Woman’s Hour – Her Ghost

The only trouble with ‘Her Ghost’ is that it doesn’t stay around for long enough, spiriting itself away until you return once more. Working really well as soothing background music this little St. Etienne recaller has more than enough to […] 

Soko – We Might Be Dead Tomorrow

Although positively ancient in the context of these internet times (it was first released in 2012) Soko’s ‘We Might Be Dead Tomorrow’ has still stirred a decent amount of interest thanks to its promo video and Soko herself Stéphanie Sokolinski’s […] 

Blunda – Messages

It’s safe to say Andy Blunda has been around the block a few times (he played in 90’s bands Fastball/ Paloalto and has written award winning music for TV shows such as ‘Storage Wars and ‘After the Catch’) but rather […] 

Alvvays – Archie, Marry Me

The omens were good, several nods from reputable sources and a single soundcloud tag that went by the name of ‘bandwagonesque’. That and the fact that several months earlier they had played a festival that wears its heart on its […] 

Elephant – Elusive Youth

Although it is quite obvious that London duo are mining Camera Obscura territory that doesn’t make ‘Elusive Youth’ any less attractive. There a couple of reasons for this, first and foremost this song has a chorus that will sweep you […] 

Chalk and Numbers – In The Dark

Might be tempting fate with this one given the storm that is a brewing outside but even if the lights go we’ll still be able to bask in the sunshine rays of Chalk and Numbers. The NYC duo have been […] 

Mutual Benefit – Advanced Falconry

I’ve written about this act on a couple of occasions previously without ever getting to the kernel of who they are. In many ways there is so much beauty in the music it might somehow tar the experience to find […] 

Summer Aviation – Magic Night

Old school indie ain’t what it used to be so when a glimmer of former glories hooves into view I am on it in super quick time. Summer Aviation’s ‘Magic Night’ certainly coaxed warmed fuzzy feelings from deep inside, an […] 

The Very Most – Idaho, America in 2049

So at last we’ve reached The Very Most’s 1000th effort at being crowned the kings of indie pop. The Idaho’s band frenetic release schedule is a joy for anyone with a penchant for soft melodies, chiming chords and harmonies from […] 

Summer Twins – Forget Me

What else for sunny days like this than an indie pop pair of girly siblings from California? A potent mix and if you are in need of car stereo sustenance then Chelsea and Justine Brown’s new ‘Forget Me Not’ EP […] 

Houndstooth – Canary Island

Not that it ever reaches what you’d call a crescendo but Houndstooth’s ‘Canary Island’ graduates from those tiny waves lapping at your lobes to a more forceful yet undeniably gentle caress. It is a lovely achievement for the Portland troupe […]
