    Left Right Left by 12KO

    Soul step

    Downright old school in its funkiness, New York’s 12KO have the horns and full on female vocals to make you wish it was 1975 again with “Left, Right Left” being all the proof that you need that soul is where it is at. That’s true now, then and forever.

    Stars Fall Down by Ernie Jackson

    Bubbly wubbly

    Ernie Jackson has perfected his manufactured sound with “Stars Fall Down” and undoubtedly what is left of mainstream radio will joyously lap this song up before delivering it on to the hairdressers of the world. In other words, it’s pop music as they used to make it.

    Salvation by Milton Star

    Route 92

    With the confidence to once more walk the well-worn path from Scotland to the land of downbeat Americana, Fife’s Milton Star use “Salvation” as their off peak ticket to musical redemption. I’m sure the Fates will smile upon them but the rest is destiny.

    Treta Yuga by Jibóia


    Mixing robotic indifference with pan European musical influences, Jibóia casts the kind of spell with “Treta Yuga” that makes you question whether your enjoyment of psychedelic substances has reached saturation point but it matters not for the female vocals had you from the start anyway. Hypnotic.

    Halfway to Anywhere by Timshel

    Shiny shiny

    So shiny and clean that they could only be from somewhere in Scandinavia, Timshel nevertheless sound like the kind of American indie pop band that should have a cult following and “Halfway To Anywhere”, unsurprisingly, makes for the perfect soundtrack to brightly coloured knitwear.

    Simon by Firewoodisland

    Flighty folk

    Lightweight, fey and folk flavoured, “Simon” shows that Firewoodisland have what it takes to storm the stage of any family friendly festival that you might attend of a summer. Fans of bands like the Fleet Foxes should take note of these new kids on the block.
