    Welcome by Amo


    Electronica

    Oddly uneven for something electronic in concept and creation, “Welcome”, at very least, shows that Amo, who are from Israel, can escape the limitations of the genre and thus produce music that can actually generate atmosphere.

    One More Time by Cape Snow


    Black clouds

    Downbeat to the point of melancholy, Cape Snow show a splash of class with their song “One More Time”. It is Bree Scanlon’s voice that tempts the band into the shadows despite said band’s apparent eagerness to please the middle of the road audience that will surely be the purchasers of this song.

    Mountains Speak by Blackheart Honeymoon


    Americana

    Wholesome and entirely reverential to the expectations of the Americana genre, Blackheart Honeymoon wrap up “Mountains Speak” in west coast ribbons and sent it out to the worthy audiences who attend roots festivals who, I expect, will welcome it with open arms.

    Love Me Badder by Elliphant


    Attitude

    It’s a love song of sorts but “Love Me Badder” from Elliphant, despite her Swedish origin, is a rather brutal stylistic reinterpretation of the American urban style. She’s got attitude, without a doubt, and that easily sells the song.

    Lazy Daze by Venus Rising


    On the straight and narrow

    Easy on the ear, Venus Rising casually roll further down the well-trodden folk rock road with their song “Lazy Daze”. The sound may not be new but the feel is definitely that of the good old days with singer Sheena Bratt keeping things securely on the sentimental track.

    Better Find a Church by JD & The Straight Shot


    Lighters in the air

    Running straight as the proverbial Americana arrow, JD & The Straight Shot play a stylish safety shot with their song “Better Find A Church” and duly hit that middle of the road target right in the bullseye. Let it be so, let it be slick and let those festival booking come rolling in.

    Good Enough Girl by Dianas


    Going up

    Indie pop has its rules and Australian band Dianas know when to follow them and when to add in their own particular brand of quirkiness. “Good Enough Girl” has the requisite fey female harmonies but is actually driven forever onwards by the kind of insistent guitar that you would expect of bad boy indie rockers. Easy when you know how and Dianas do.

    Golden Dream by Stonefield


    Sunshine

    Four sisters from Australia, Stonefield drift through rock music’s past in search of their muse. “Golden Dream” ticks all the boxes for San Francisco in the early seventies and adds a deliciously determined vocal. Girl power at its best, I would say.
