    After Me by Misun


    Holding back

    Although somewhat sluggish in the rhythm department and heavy handed in the guitar department, Misun – from Washington DC – have just enough oddball charm to get “After Me” to the finish line. The underlying appeal, however, is in the edgy paranoia of the lo-fi female vocals.

    King William by The Beautiful Game

    Whilst never straying far from what you might expect of proficient indie rockers, London’s The Beautiful Game nevertheless show plenty of energy and that, with a spirited vocal performance from Jason Crowley, powers “King William” right through to the end.

    Take It Back by Liza Anne


    Latté lady

    The cynical amongst you might regard “Take It Back” as an attempt at attaining indie credibility but is it wrong that Liza Anne has crossed the road and made it to the coffee shop? I hazard a guess that fans of Sara Bareilles will think not. Two sugars in mine, please.

    Blood On Your Hands by Chinese Missy


    Raucous rockers

    Whilst the song is basic four on the floor rock, London band Chinese Missy, with “Blood On Your Hands”, nonetheless show that they are capable of both a spirited performance and going large on those guitars. That works for me.

    Black Swan by Astrid’s Tea Party


    Downbeat

    “Black Swan” takes a bit too long to get going but there is enough dramatic swagger in the lady’s voice to suggest a better arrangement would transform the potential of Astrid’s Tea Party brand of moody and downbeat electro pop.

    Sick of this Shit by Cause of Accident


    Punk power

    A gloriously anarchic song that revels in its guitar thrashing punk roots, “Sick Of This Shit” kicks the man mercilessly in such an infectious way that you want to put on your best Doc Marten boots and join in the fun. We should have more elections so that we can all sing along to their tune. I would vote for that.

    Tory Scum by Not Right


    Ranters

    I’m sure they would really like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony but perhaps not today as Not Right have taken to stage instead with a, lyrically economical, post punk political rant called “Tory Scum”. You can, no doubt, guess their musical direction but at least they have stood up and been counted.
