Tennis Bafra have been active, in the sense that they’ve been playing together, ever since the 1990’s. And yet they didn’t release their debut album until 2012. All that experience means that they sound like the distilled ideal of what you want from noisy, messy indie rock, and second album Bummer delivers that in spades. On Nomethod.
De Montevert is the minimal indie-pop solo project of Ellinor Nilsson. This self-titled release, following 2012’s Friends and Enemies, showcases a sound that has been stripped back and refined. Nilsson’s emotive voice dominates, framed by jagged, almost post-punk, bass and guitar. Available on CD and vinyl LP from Nomethod.
