    Murdered Out by Kim Gordon


    Solid

    Still knocking out songs that are more a soundtrack to unarmed combat than anything else, Kim Gordon lets “Murdered Out” cruise the dystopian urban environment in search of something shiny (like a knife?). She’s still got it and got it good.

    Weetabix & Wine by Harri Larkin


    Ironic

    I’m pretty sure that “Weetabix & Wine” is meant to be ironic yet Harri Larkin perform it with all the niceness of well brought up boys and girls. That may well be the true irony as making things seem what they are not is the sign of true talent.

    Brother Jonathan by Glenn Meling


    Smooth

    Although the intro to “Brother Jonathan” would suggest that discord is on the menu, Glenn Meling instead provides evidence that he is a downbeat crooner at heart. One for your Auntie Joan, perhaps?

    The Blue by Cocoa Futures


    Persistent

    “The Blue” is pervaded with kind of oblique rhythms that once were the trademark of the Paisley Park pop machine and this three minutes of potential fame uses, with inherent irony, the power of sequenced insistence to get inside your head. That’s enough to make me think Cocoa Futures have a future. Oh dear, I have punned myself into a corner again.

    Gone For The Weekend by Computer Magic


    Lo-fi

    There is no shortage of lo-fi electronica about these days yet Computer Magic manages to add enough wistful urban charm to her looped up song “Gone for the Weekend” to distinguish it from the crowd. I liked this more than I thought I would.

    Best Friends by Allie & Ivy


    Upbeat

    Ever endearing, Allie & Ivy stays in the sunshine with her song “Best Friends” and the positive vibes radiate from every sequenced note of this fresh little pop song.

    Hollywood by The Magnettes


    Electro poppy

    Manic pop from The Magnettes with “Hollywood” being easily comparable with the best songs of the sequenced pop princesses of the past like the Pipettes. This is one song that deserves to be released on vinyl.
