It's coffee this morning for me. The coffee link becomes apparent when I pick up The Wave Pictures CD 'Instant Coffee Baby' which is a lively old skool indie collection of uncluttered romantic & humorous jingles weighing in (initially) somewhere between The Brilliant Corners & Milky Wimpshake. There's definitely a touch of genuine soul & drama within these songs. Sparse trad instrumentation, jangly guitars, chatty bass & clean, uncomplicated drums render these tracks quite timeless. David Tattersal the singer has one of those wholesome, yearning & slightly effeminate voices that is full of pathos & poetry, he stretches his charm all over these fragile songs, sometimes rattling along like a less bedroomy & gloomy Lodger, at other times echoing the strummy kitchen sink majesty of The Broken Family Band (with some gorgeous rustic violin snaking all over the shop on track 9!) or even mid period B&S! I can see any genuine fans of the twee-er end of indie getting on down to these rather charming & passionately assembled toe wagglers. A really pleasant surprise! On Moshi Moshi.
