This week’s selection comes from sunny Wiltshire where I am spending some of my half term. Happy Sunday
Teenage – Veronica Falls
Despite the obvious cliches I’m all for girl-boy indie pop. While Veronica Falls probably won’t win any points for originality, this song is catchy and well produced. The two vocalists remind me a bit of The Pastels which is definitely a compliment.
Tugboat – Galaxie 500
Having been alerted to the fact that the Frankie Cosmos song Art School sounds an awful lot like like Listen The Snow Is Falling, I then decided to listen to some other stuff by this band and I liked them. This is the most popular Galaxie 500 song according to YouTube therefore the first song I listened to by them. I really like what I have heard and will definitely be finding some more songs to listen to by them.
Fade – Sleater-Kinney
As the last track off their most recent release No Cities To Love, this song provides a slightly different sound that perfectly finishes off the album. The heavily modulated guitar and vocals make the song stand out and the drums are powerful and build with the song.
