More indie shenanigans this time from The Proctors on a split 7” with Apple Orchard. Both terrible names in my eyes, one of my first friends had that P surname and he was a total doylum who preferred Erasure to the far superior Pet Shop Boys so we naturally fell out. Now these guys and gals do jangly, joyous twee and epic old-skool indie carved out of a piece of musical rock from the ‘80s, very Sarah Records with bad nasally singing and a gorgeous wistful atmosphere. The first tune is the more punchy anthemic one, the second sweeter, tentative, ponderous and jangly.

Apple Orchard are noisier but more unique-sounding with lovely fluid bass playing anchoring a bizarrely produced maelstrom of fuzzy alien guitar and a dreamy high-noted keyboard refrain. The singer sounds a bit like Chris from Hood, his tender voice has gentle charm and character. The song ‘Not This Time’ is a beautiful resounding success when given the sum of its ingredients it should really sound a bloody mess. Their other offering is quite different with a slightly baggy beat, that swaying old '80s daydream of a cheap synthline and a buoyant bassline that is quite possibly inspired by the Field Mice or The Wake. The guitar is less virulent and the vocals buried more in the mix here, It’s quite a different song but plainly by the same band. This is what I mean by identity...yes, you at the back there, The Raveonettes.
