    Bleed It Out by Angus Munro


    Mover

    OK, so the boy writes thinly disguised, if acidic, show tunes but our very own Angus Munro knows that it is all about the ending and he duly takes his song “Bleed It Out” right through the repeat-repeat-repeat-chorus barrier into a rather splendid big finish that made my day. I even felt an urge to sing along but I am, of course, too cool to do that.

    Four by Dhruv Visvanath


    Easy

    It’s always nice to hear some proper musicianship and Dhruv Visvanath does not disappoint with his guitar skills and easy going vocal style making his song “Four” an easy on the ear choice for summer evenings.

    Black Dog by Michael P Cullen


    Unimpressive

    A live track, it would seem, from Australian musician Michael P Cullen but, despite the courage that such an approach entails, “Black Dog” still seems a less than impressive performance of a characterless song.

    Falling by Tiny Eyes


    Downtrodden

    Much as you would expect of a modern day musician outing his inner sensitivity, Tiny Eyes looks at the world through piano chords and downbeat lyrics with “Falling” being about as accurate description as you could get of my mood as I listened to this song.

    Release Me To The Sea by SIORE


    Downbeat

    Even in the sunshine that blesses Australia downbeat electropop survives with “Release Me To The Sea” allowing singer Jessica Evans the opportunity to overdose on dramatic melancholy. The hipsters here and out there will like this one.

    Tear World by Wooing


    Quirky

    There’s nothing in this world that an excess of roughshod guitar riffs mixed with sweet female vocals can’t solve as Wooing demonstrate with their quirky song “Tear World”. It’s not your standard fare but it's none the worse for that.

    T.R.O.U.B.L.E, by Miracle Glass Company


    Quality

    There are times when you get to thinking that all Edinburgh bands are unadventurous to the point of self-parody then along comes one like Miracle Glass Company with an offbeat and appealing seventies style pop confection called “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” and I am, once more, dancing in the street.

    Something Bad by Pangea


    Singalong

    Funny how a name bring backs memories for Pangea was also – a coincidence I’m sure – an Indian restaurant that sold me a curry of doom. You know what I mean… however, Liverpool band Pangea are a rather more uplifting proposition with their song “Something Bad” echoing better times for all its three minutes and ten seconds.
