Vocalist Manuela Gernedel teams up with ex-Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy for a self titled full length of gentle, left-of-centre pop songs. Enlisting the help of some guest appearances from members of The Mystery Jets, Django Django, and Veronica Falls. Catchy and sublime. On vinyl from Lost Map.

Austrian vocalist Manuela Gernedel has just released her debut album on Lost Map records and a little gem it is too. Manuela breezily wafts her gentle vocals atop melodic indie-pop, complemented by Nick McCarthy -- ex of Franz Ferdinand -- on lazy, summery guitar. Rumour has it there are members of Django Django and Mystery Jets contributing to the record, but please don’t let that put you off.
There are a shedload of seductively catchy songs on this record -- plenty of ‘70s touchstones here too, I’m thinking the Carpenters often as I listen. While ‘Silent Dome’ has a woozy Flaming Lips-like quality to it. For the most part though, it’s refreshing tunes galore. Like a real cool lemonade on a humid July afternoon.
