The Fortuna POP! All-Stars
You Can Hide Your Love Forever

Dubbed twee pop's answer to Live Aid, this 7" served as a final farewell to the good ship Fortuna Pop!, offering one last tick of the feelings-felt checklist. It's a cover of Comet Gain's lovely, whiny, shambly, romantic, ever-so-sad "You Can Hide Your Love Forever", arguably their greatest ever song. In a semi-starstudded version, this cover fe...view item »

Martha
Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart

Produced by MJ from Leeds psychedelic noise Gods Hookworms, this is Durham-spawned power pop outfit Martha's second album. Comprising J. Cairns and Daniel Ellis on guitars, Naomi Griffin on bass and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums), with all four members providing the vocals and song writing, Martha (which is none of their names) do upbeat pop wi...view item »

Joanna Gruesome
Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All)

The first release from Welsh group Joanna Gruesome since the departure of their vocalist, Pretty Fucking Sick (Of it All) brings in a new vocalist and keys. The tune is about being pursued by intelligence operatives and set in Llangrannog in Wales (which is a lovely place actually). Some more good ol’ shou...view item »

Martha
The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues

Martha use their DIY punk stylings to take a swipe at the Tory government and the austerity cuts with The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues on what will be the final release on the Fortuna Pop! Label. It is backed with Fix My Brain, a cover, originally by Texan punks The Marked Men...view item »

Karl Smith
Kites

The voice of Sodastream releases his first solo album. No matter how hard I try, I can recall Sodastream though they were apparently popular on the John Peel programme some time ago. Solo, he does a kind of quirky singer songwritery thing, part Go Betweens solo album territory, p...view item »

September Girls
Veneer

Five shoegazers on a mission to find some melodies in a glorious sea of shitty feedback, September Girls are the noise act to follow, making the kind of No Age ruckus that actually has light (or pop songs) at the end of the tunnel. Their new 12", 'Veneer', boasts four well-doused tunes, each performed by a different member of the outfit....view item »

Flowers
Say 123

London trio Flowers I'm sure are happy to contribute one more single to Fortuna Pop before the label calls it a day. Instead of recording new tracks the band picked out a couple of demos and previously unheard recordings including 'Rhodes' which was recorded in one take while they were waiting for the van to turn up. Wholesome i...view item »

Cinema Red and Blue
Come Back To The City, Babyface

As Fortuna Pop takes itself off this mortal coil it finishes with a flourish, bidding farewell with a series of releases including this one -- it's by a supergroup which contains members of Comet Gain, Crystal Stilts and Pale Lights. They 'farted out' (their words) these songs which have a West ...view item »

Joanna Gruesome
Peanut Butter 

‘Peanut Butter’ is twenty five minutes of hyperactive, violently melodic, aggressive, economic pop that’s packed full of tasty hooks and screams from highly acclaimed Cardiff based pop punk ensemble Joanna Gruesome. Recorded in Leeds at Hookworms frontman M.J’s Suburban Homes Studios, the album comes with the following wa...view item »

Martha
Courting Strong

Bit of lively and highly melodic indie pop here from Martha, a band not a person. It's on FortunaPOP! and it's produced by Hookworms wunderkind MJ so my expectations are high. It's fast-paced and has a chunky late '90s power pop sound to the guitars. The songs are all quite wordy with boldly delivered boy/girl v...view item »

Shrag
On The Spines Of Old Cathedrals

Limited edition single taken from Shrag’s third album Canines. Joyful harmonies and influences including New Order and Chic make for an upbeat track which brings to mind hot summer’s days and the feeling that you get when you feel unstoppable. Lyrically brilliant from Helen King. 7” vinyl....view item »

The Spook School
I'll Be Honest / Will You Always Be My Friend?

I haven’t heard the Spook School before but I have to admit this record doesn’t sound quite as spooky as I had hoped. It’s actually some kind of ramshackle C86ish indie pop with a bit of a twee thing going on. There’s a lady singing in a broad Scottish accent, some “aah-ah” b...view item »

Allo Darlin'
Europe

Allo Darlin' don't really suit my musical sensibilities and there's probably better people out there to review this record so apologies in advance. As you're probably aware, Allo Darlin' are the darlings of the UK indie-pop scene. Formed and fronted by Austr...view item »

The Proper Ornaments
Wooden Head

Here we have a Veronica Falls bloke and his new album with The Proper Ornaments From the get go ‘Wooden Head’ is drenched in breezy Velvet Underground summer pop with a little Byrdsian jangle thrown in, with a gentle and lazy...view item »

Allo Darlin'
Allo Darlin'

Allo Darlin' is ex pat Aussie Elizabeth Morris and various cohorts who conspire to produce honest-to-goodness rattly twee guitar pop & atmospheric indie that succeeds on many levels. After the daft smasheroonie 'Henry Rollins Don't Dance', I wasn't expecting such a well rounded album from these peeps, more a shambling whimsical novelty hit '...view item »

Darren Hayman and Papernut Cambridge
I've Been a Bad Bad Boy

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner) has most recently been performing with Papernut Cambridge, a project run by former Death In Vegas guitarist Ian Button. Here Darren leads the ensemble in 2 tracks of lovely old-fashioned widescreen pop, present...view item »

Various
Continental Drift

This release is totally a team effort, with the Fortuna POP! and Slumberland pairing up to release a four-way split between Mercury Girls, Wildhoney, The Spook School and Tigercats. So that’s four different spins on the lively indie-pop sound, dosed with more or less punk,...view item »

Evans The Death
Vanilla

Evans The Death have always been an intense blast of a listen, but their previous albums have tended to be grounded in pop songs. Not so on Vanilla, which is dark, jagged, and more than a little sonically weird. Needless to say, this is a positive development, setting ...view item »

September Girls
Age of Indignation

Dublin band September Girls make a jittery art-rock built from ghostly vocals and atmospheric guitar playing. Age of Indignation is their second studio album and channels their interest in Irish politics and feminism into a wall of distortion and effects. Fortuna POP! release the album...view item »

Flowers
Everybody’s Dying To Meet You

Flowers follow up their Bernard Butler produced debut with Dying to Meet You, on vinyl LP and CD. Their dreamy shoegaze-inspired sound reminds us of the golden-age of 4AD records, when guitars were chilled and vocals hushed. The fuzzy, slightly melancholy sound of this three-piece strike a perfect balance of pun...view item »

Pete Astor
Spilt Milk

You’ll know Pete Astor from his work with The Weather Prophets and The Loft. Here on Spilt Milk though he strikes out solo, letting his kitchen-sink indie pop songs play out exactly as he wants them to (although he is supported by members of Male Bonding, ...view item »

Steven James Adams
Old Magick

Steven James Adams made his name in Broken Family Band, but now singer-songwriters solo. Old Magick is his second solo record, a melodic and thoughtful outing. Personnel on the record includes members of The Drink, but Old Magick finds Adams stripping things do...view item »

The Spook School
Binary

The Spook School are a gang of pop-punk enthusiasts making enthusiastic pop-punk. They’ve been making waves since their debut album Dress Up, released a couple of years ago, but they still sound grounded and direct. Binary addresses the nonsense of rigid gender norms, embracing genderqueer and non-binary ...view item »

Mammoth Penguins
Hide and Seek

‘Hide And Seek’ is the debut album from indie rock/pop outfit Mammoth Penguins, the new band fronted by Emma Kupa (Standard Fare). Having switched from bass/vocals in Standard Fare to lead guitar in Mammoth Penguins, Kupa has given herself more room to maneuver and expand the dimensions of her trademark, powerhouse vocals and Weezer ...view item »

Let's Wrestle
Let's Wrestle

The Let's Wrestles return this week with a new album on FortunaPOP!. They seem to have matured from their obnoxious early shamblepop into a more polished kind of indie-pop, tightly delivered and full of falsetto vocal harmonies. I'm eating tacos with my housemate and he just said it sounds like the Kaiser Chiefs...view item »

Chorusgirl
Chorusgirl

Chorusgirl (apparently named in reference to frontwoman Silvi Wersing’s experiences of playing supporting roles in other bands) are a noise pop band heavy on the pop. The songs are tuneful and bouncy, with that breezy vibe that the best of this kind of material always has (but with heavy lyrical content). ...view item »

The Spook School
Try To Be Hopeful

Another joyous queer punk outing from The Spook School. Following their critically acclaimed debut, Try To Be Hopeful is a high-quality blend of lo-fi guitar crunch, sizzling pop melodies and intelligent lyrics about sexuality, identity and having a good time. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Fortuna POP!...view item »

Simon Love
The New Adam And Eve

Here we have the lead single from Simon Love’s new album It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time. The song, titled The New Adam And Eve, is a tale of a jealous lover longing to attack and brutalise anyone he perceives as competition, told over a jaunty indie-chamber-pop tune. An Oasis cove...view item »

Mammoth Penguins
Propped Up / Thinking Of You

The first single from debut album Hide And Seek, Propped Up sees Cambridge indie-pop three-piece Mammoth Penguins embrace the punk style of The Slits with the pop songwriting sensibilities of Superchunk. Big choruses for small, sweaty stages. Altogether now! Out on limited blue vinyl 7" on Fortuna POP!...view item »

Simon Love
It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time

Simon Love used to make music with his band, The Loves, but now he loves alone. It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time is a homage to seventies-soft-rock-pop records, and consequently is slightly epic. Guests include DJ Emperor Rosko, A Little Orchestra and none other t...view item »

Pete Astor
Mr. Music

Singer/songwriter and Creation records trailblazer Pete Astor (The Loft, The Weather Prophets, Ellis Island Sound and Wisdom of Harry) has also worked as an A&R manager for the likes of Hefner, Cornershop and Republica. The single ‘Mr. Music’ is the first in a series of releases for Fortuna Pop with Veronica Falls/ Proper Ornamen...view item »

Allo Darlin'
My Heart Is A Drummer

More from the EU indie pop mountain. Can anyone say the words Allo Darlin' NOT in a leering cockney accent? None of us here can. Having sat through their recent album, parts of which made me want to hurl myself into the River Aire at the earliest opportunity, I was pleased to see that this is one of their more impressive offerings. It bounds alo...view item »

Tigercats are a party band comprised of singer/guitarist Duncan Barrett, his brother Giles on bass, Laura Kovic on keyboards and vocals, Jonny Evans on drums and Paul Rains (Allo Darlin’) on guitar. ‘Sleeping In The Backseat’ is a lovingly crafted, record of sophisticated pop songs with contagious hooks and danceable rhythms, e...view item »

Evans The Death
Enabler

Limited Edition 7" single "Enabler" taken from Evans The Death's forthcoming LP Expected Delays due for release in March 2015. Coalescing feedback and fuzz with their usual discordant melodies, singer Katherine Whitaker's dual vocals are a gorgeously distinctive aspect.

Milky Wimpshake
Encore, Un Effort!

Milky Wimpshake were formed in 1993 and have been through a number of lineup changes with songwriter Pete Dale being the only constant.

These catchy-song producing kids have undergone some line-up changes, but the songs still retain their qualities.

Expect Delays is almost here, and apart...view item »

Tigercats

Comet Gain
Fingerprint Ritual

Comet Gain return and pour us a shot of twee with Fingerprint Ritual, an EP of four new tracks, including the overwrought epic "Breaking Open The Head Part 2 (The Eye-Shaped Room)", which runs at eleven minutes and continues the narrative weaved in the song's first part.

The Chemistry Experiment
Gongs Played By Voice

Pastoral prog from Nottingham-based quintet The Chemistry Experiment. Rather than literally enacting its title, Gongs Played By Voices adheres to the British prog tradition of discussing nature and the seasons with liberal use of fantastical lyrics and surreal storytelling. Actual gongs played by voices would’ve b...view item »

Flowers
Joanna

Wierdly the titles on this records by these modern day twee-poppers both (almost) reference the names of recent lady companions of mine....most possibly to rub in my uselessness in such matters. On the A side ‘Joanna’ is a tale of someones deep depression over a kinda perky sorta shambolic strummy shamble. The lady’s voice is s...view item »

Comet Gain
Paperback Ghosts

COMET GAIN return with their seventh album “Paperback Ghosts” on July 7th, their first since 2011’s critically acclaimed “Howl of The Lonely Crowd”.

Allo Darlin'
We Come From The Same Place

Anglo-Aussie indie-poppers Allo Darlin’ are back with their third full-length and a lot has changed since 2012’s ‘Europe’: coalescing the enthusiastic urgency of their 2010 self-titled debut with the introspective sophistication of its follow-up, ‘We Come From The Same Place’ combines the best of both worlds. ...view item »

September Girls
Cursing The Sea

The process of doling out reviews to our various staff is more fraught than you may think.

Allo Darlin'
Bright Eyes

Twee indiepop favourites Allo Darlin' are back with a brand new 7", and it's not a cover of Art Garfunkel's much-loved rabbit-themed weepie. 'Bright Eyes' is in fact a song of their own creation, which sees singer Elizabeth Morris duetting for the first time with guitarist Paul Rains in a sweet little ditty with a nice overdriven rock out at the...view item »

Flowers
Do What You Want To, Its What You Should Do

Flowers are a trio from London who make sparse and often noisy songs that usually follow the golden twee pop rule: a song over three minutes is a song too long. Fronted by Rachel Kenedy's vocals -- which resemble the belted and intentioned performance of London Grammar's Hannah Reid -- Flowers' debut record mixes un...view item »

John Sims
Palomino

John Sims is actually not a person named John Sims, but a band of people who just happen to think it sounds nice and will be awesomely confusing. Their new record, 'Palomino', is released on Fortuna Pop!, and shows off a twee application of hazy kraut-influenced sounds. It comes with a Silver Apples cover, so you know -- nice experiments only....view item »

Let's Wrestle
Rain Ruins Revolution

I struggled with the new Lets Wrestle album when it came around on my review pile last time round.

Weirdly, though, in this smaller dose I'm actually enjoying them very much. 'Rain Ruins Revoluti...view item »
