    Cold Heart by Franklin

    More of less

    Seemingly driven by a desire to create atmosphere, Franklin, from deepest Englandshire, fail to notice that they are struggling with a barely serviceable song and yet I feel they deserve credit for gamely stretching “Cold Heart” out to the six minute mark. There’s persistence for you.

    Room by Liza Anne

    Shadows

    Beset with both melancholy and reverb, Liza Anne nevertheless shakes off her downbeat sonic afflictions to make “Room” the kind of song that gets you the second time around. She’s from Nashville so she was never really going to stray very far from the mainstream but, that said, there is no doubting she has got the heart to go places.

    It's a Hollow World by White Birches

    J'accuse!

    Being a moody synth pop duo from Sweden, it is perhaps no surprise that White Birches tackle weightier subjects in their words than most. Jenny Gabrielsson’s solemn vocals decorate “It’s A Hollow World” as if to accuse us all of guilt which, in the context of the song, seems like the right course of action.

    Bedsit by The Rusbies

    Have you ever?

    A back to basics song, “Bedsit” proceeds with determination along the post punk trail pausing only at Pete Shelley’s house to load up with some lyrical inspiration. That wry humour serves The Rusbies well however and their beer drinking honesty also shines through. “Bedsit” is, without a doubt, a Friday night song.

    Silence Myself by Fable

    Click cool

    “Silence Myself” is a song made up of little more than minimalist electro and attitude. That said, Fable’s emotive approach to the art of singing subsumes the hypnotic simplicity of the song into the conventions of cabaret leaving your ears duly filled with melancholy.
