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


    Quality

    There are times when you get to thinking that all Glasgow 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.

    Cut You Loose by Anya Marina


    Classy

    As always a fine example of how to do big city power pop, Anya Marina fingersnaps her way through her song “Cut You Loose” with all the poise and emotional precision that your heart and ears need.

    15 Years by High Tropics


    Australian

    If you like your Australian bands big on volume and low on subtlety then High Tropics might just be your thing with just enough of the indie ghost haunting “15 Years” to make you wish for summer.

    Weekend by Lines


    Retro

    Once more in the retro-electro groove, Lines stamp their sequenced feet to the beat of their song “Weekend” as if time has stood still. That said, there’s enough in the chorus to get you in the groove too.

    Habits by Softspot


    Thoughtful

    When it comes to setting the mood, Softspot hits the - ahem – spot with “Habits”. Cue Sarah Kinlaw’s wistful voice drifting over the kind of minimalist song that cries out for recognition by the intelligentsia.

    Like What I Like by Tokyo


    Yesterday

    Not quite the sound of revolution, Tokyo keep it simple and familiar all the way through “Like What I Like” and will therefore undoubtedly achieve just what they deserve to achieve.

    Boufou Safou by Amadou & Mariam


    Catchy

    Distinctly hypnotic in the way that afro-beat is, Amadou & Mariam nevertheless stamp some class on to their song “Boufou Safou” with the curiously familiar riff driving the song back on to the dancefloor for one more spin.
