The Eye Jab
Who Still Believe In Love

The latest ltd Salvia 7" is by Newcastle 4 piece The Eye Jab. 'Who Still Believe In Love' is an accomplished slice of dreamy alternative pop. I'm ever so slightly reminded of Sigur Ros with that dreamy element although not as epic and pompous sounding. This really wears its heart on its sleeve. Brian has just hovered over to me to mention that...view item »

Everything Everything
Suffragette Suffragette

Everything Everything, so Bloc Party they named them twice. At the end of this it sounds like the guy's singing 'Whosa gonna sit on your face when I'm gone?' like some sort of fetishistic Super Mario. Coincidentally, did you know that Mario and Luigi's surname is supposed to be Mario? So Mario's called Mario Mario. Like Phil and Gary Neville's dad,...view item »

Theoretical Girl
Another Fight

'Another Fight' is the new single from Theoretical Girl & it's a perky, poppy thing with some really lovely touches & a perfect female vocal under a subtle chugger of a song. There's a real sense of sadness about this tune and it totally wins my heart over as this is where the boundaries between quality indie guitar & perfect pop are lo...view item »

Theoretical Girl
The Hypocrite

Theoretical Girl: 'The Hypocrite' (Salvia) 7" If the vocals were more urgent and angry then this Disco/pop/rock hybrid would come close to aping Chicks On Speed's version of Delta Five's 'Mind Your Own Business'. Maybe it's in the beats. The flip gets on a bit of a lullabye tip with a toned down backing and quaint vocals. Second relaese on the...view item »

Blue Roses
Doubtful Comforts

'Doubtful Comforts' is Blue Roses' debut single and it's really very nice, setting their stall out as classy contenders for the crown of something or other I don't know I can't be arsed thinking of something imaginative. Set to a twinkling music box backing, all dead minimal and delicate, the falsetto female vocals get across a real sense of sadnes...view item »

Laura Groves
I Am Leaving

Gently does it. Laura Groves is a singer songwritery lady who makes a pleasing noise on 'I Am Leaving' which reminds me a bit of Joanna Newsom but more kooky and twee indie sounding. It has a high twinkle factor despite it being largely played on acoustic guitar.... Very nice sounding record though and it will appeal to folks who like Nancy Elizabe...view item »

Kwes
Hearts In Home

Late arrival of the week is a 7" by Kwes called 'Hearts in Home', a post modernist slice of delicious ambient pop with this looming Meat Beat Manifesto/PIL bassline and what sounds like one of those mad thumb pianos that the congotronics folks endorse - that creaky noise is just so cool, like a rusty/wonky squawk! His voice is calmly measured,...view item »

Dead Kids
Fear And Fluoride

Dead Kids: 'Fear and Fluoride' (Salvia) Hot on the heals of the Laura Groves 7" comes something totally contrasting. Rollicking, thrashy punk-pop as opposed to the fashionable folk genre. Coming on like a version of Bloc Party with a sloganeering agenda, it's a prime time slice of pop that'll get the kids up on the floor betwixt yer nu-grave w...view item »
