    Soldier of Love by Amazon Blonde

    Moving on up

    With an oddly appealing mix of rawk chick vocals and uncommonly fluent guitar, Amazon Blonde keep their collective head above the water all the way through “Soldier of Love”. The song doesn’t quite realise the promise of this band but I’m certain they have bigger guns in their armoury.

    The Way You Do by Nikki J

    Urban Britannia

    Nikki J has, without a doubt, a voice but the lacklustre laptop style beats steer “The Way You Do” way too close to the competition to help her fly the flag for the glory of things urban and British.

    Let It Die Away by Burntfield

    Finnish rock

    “Let It Die Away” is a fine example of mature melodic rock from Burntfield that sounds like it was conceived in the much larger space that is the USA rather than the more compact living space that is Finland. If you have classic rock in your underpants then this song will do it for you and, although the synths draw you into the song, it is the guitar that is, as always, the king.

    Checking Out by Alan Smithee featuring Marklar

    Hippie chaps

    “Checking Out” is an eerily drifting, almost to the point of carelessness, song that highlights the ability of Livingston’s Alan Smithee to turn casual into causal with the end result being almost as hypnotic as one of those vintage lava lamps.

    Higher by Cajsa Siik

    Swedish star

    “Higher” allows Cajsa Siik to take us on a journey into a minimalist electronic wonderland and also shows her as a more than capable alternative to Lykke Li especially if poetry is your preference. She does what she does well.

    Chasing the Stars by Katie Raven

    Solid voice

    Katie Raven takes the big ballad style to heart and duly gives “Chasing The Stars” enough drama and restrained emotion to carry the song into the mainstream. The mainstream is a busy place, however, but I like to think that there is always room for one more on top.
