Wild Nothing – Golden Haze EP (Captured Tracks) 05/10/2010

“Golden Haze” doesn’t really offer anything too different from what was heard on Wild Nothing’s debut “Gemini”; however it is still a satisfying and rewarding listen.

Summer Camp – Young EP (Moshi Moshi) 06/09/2010

Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey have a quirky charm that makes their EP ‘Young’ begin with warmth and romance to push you through…if only just.

With ‘Your Four Limbs’ Kurran and The Wolfnotes have produced a much needed twist on a genre that is often considered too derivative.

Nine Ninety Nines – Dirty Little Secret/Put it Politely 06/09/2010

As far as début singles go, the Nine Ninety Nines’ is as good as you’ll find this side of the post-apocalyptic synth movement.

Gallops – Gallops EP (Holy Roar) 30/08/2010

It’s clear Gallops really know how to concoct a crescendo of Pop influences and avant garde electronica.

Bouncy surf garage and fuzzy indie/rock are all to commonplace these days. So what makes the bouncy surf garage and fuzzy indie/rock of Harlem so appealing?

Hotly tipped by many, this plucky Scot Iain Campbell is picking up legions of fans on the small stages on this years festival slog.

Othello Woolf – Doorstep/’Deep Water (Young and Lost Club)

Sophisticated funk pop and an obvious love of Prince are evident in young London lad Othello Woolf’s sound

Washed Out – Life Of Leisure EP (Mexican Summer) 14/06/2010

The EP is a dreamy affair, with fuzzed out filtered vocals and bedroom production, but it’s also surprisingly upbeat

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – Round & Round (4AD)

A catchy lo-fi disco song that will fit nicely into the surge of Chillwave that will be hitting the UK this summer.
