    Tonight by Acapulco Lips


    Retro cool

    Guitars on reverb, girlish lead vocals and that retro sound might well be the trademark of many an indie pop band with intentions of making a pilgrimage to the beach but Seattle’s Acapulco Lips have more spirit and charm than most with their song “Tonight” easily making the world seem a better place.

    Blonde American Girl by Alex Bent & The Emptiness


    Bleak

    “Blonde American Girl” lasts a lot longer than you would expect of a song with such a title. It is also relentlessly downbeat with Alex Bent & The Emptiness spending his six minutes of fame milking the electronic melancholy for all it is worth.

    All In Line by Firewoodisland


    Laidback

    As a song, “All In Line” is about as far from any kind of controversy as you can get these days and, duly, Firewoodisland show that their reputation as the festival friendly Ovalteenies of choice for rucksackers and urban warriors is well deserved.

    Your Girl by Violet Days


    Euro electro

    A slick slice of classy Euro electro pop, “Your Girl” shows what the normally wistful Lina Hansson can really do as she leads Violet Days confidently on a sequenced march towards stardom.

    Dynamo by Carly Jamison


    Retro

    Ploughing the mainstream of the nineties is Carly Jamison but, underneath the riffs and sing along chorus that moves “Dynamo” forward, there beats a heart made of something other than gold. One to watch.

    Pathway by She Brought Me Gasoline


    Americana

    “Pathway” provides all the proof that you might need that Americana is a worldwide phenomenon and all credit to Croatian band She Brought Me Gasoline for managing to sound like they hail from the good old US of A. This is the kind of band that should do well at roots festivals throughout Europe.

    Smokid All Stars by Smokey Joe & The Kid


    Stylish

    Athough, on the face of it, this is just a rambling run through the hierarchy of European hip-hop, “Smokid All Stars” is from the distinctly oddball French outfit Smokey Joe & The Kid and is therefore blessed with a style so often missing from the genre. This song is smoking hot and refrigerator cold all at the same time. How do they do it?

    Fabula Spatium by Mitya


    Inventive

    They love their rock in Russia and Mitya takes a slinky, bordered by both the sixties and seventies, west coast of the USA approach with “Fabula Spatium” adding in all sorts of electronic inconsistencies to update it for today’s more cynical ears.
