The Molochs
Flowers In The Spring

Now, now, look at you now, Flowers In The Spring-do. The Molochs aren’t Travis - who is? - but the Californian group certainly share an ear for melody with the Glaswegian group (‘Sing’ is an anthem and if you think otherwise then you’re wrong). This is an LP of laid back, '60s-inspired college rock that would have shifted serious units in the early ‘90s. The Molochs probably won’t like it if we point out the similarities between ‘Too Lost In Love’ and Hanson’s ‘MMMbop’, but if you’re going to write songs that sound like Hanson’s ‘MMMBop’ then we’re afraid that we have no choice but to compare them to Hanson’s ‘MMMBop’. (Hanson, it should be reiterated, are no Travis.)

The Molochs
America's Velvet Glory

Out on Innovative Leisure (BadBadNotGood, Nosaj Thing, Holy Fuck), this release pushes the envelope rather less than the aforementioned, sticking as it does to Jonathan Richman-style proto-punk and skittering skiffle. America’s Velvet Glory (indeed, indeed) is in the same school as early Parquet Courts or Ultimate Painting - not looking to reinvent the wheel, simply looking to write good songs good. Single ‘You and Me’ sounds like a track called ‘You and Me’ and is dead pleasant.
