    Better Off Alone by Callum Baird

    Loud and proud

    Once you get over the novelty of a Scottish singer tackling anything remotely topical, “Better Off Alone (A Love Song to Scottish Independence)” remains plenty good enough to mark Callum Baird out as a smart lyricist with a knowing smile on his face. Neatly namechecking his way through everything that you might, metaphorically or otherwise, associate with the Scotland of today, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this turns out to be the national anthem of a certain soon to be created independent state.

    Dust by Love For Zero

    Mainstream Manchester

    Deep and intense, Manchester band Love For Zero walk their way through “Dust” at a middling pace that is suggestive of a near devotional reverence to stadium bands like Coldplay. As you might expect, there’s a big chorus to encourage you to wave your lighter in the air and the song is nothing if not polished.

    Road to Recovery by Double Score

    Double DJ

    “Road To Recovery”, by San Diego’s Double Score, has the mark of a DJ stamped all over it so I wouldn’t be surprised if it exists in any number of remixed versions. There’s not a lot of song to hold the dance floor beats together in this version however and, to tell the truth, a more impassioned vocal wouldn’t go amiss either.

    Monday's Guide by Roger Gomez

    Middle of the road

    There will always be musicians out to impress the mainstream and Roger Gomez seems to be one of those people. His single “Monday’s Guide” therefore aims for the middle of the road and gets there without fuss, flair or fanfare.

    One For My Daddy'O by Udi Levy

    Solid as a rock

    Revving up the engine of talent, Udi Levy races through his rock instrumental called “One For My Daddy’O” with so much fret board fleetness and flair that you will have no option other than to persuade him, by fair means or foul, to join your band.

    This Love by Memory in Plant

    Going deep

    Complex and no doubt proud possessors of unfinished beards, Israeli band Memory in Plant infuse their song “This Love” with a well selected set of musical influences that lift them into the realm between post rock and electronically induced psychedelia. Mind expanding is clearly the way to go.
