    I Won't Cry by Mia Milan


    Classic pop

    As bright and breezy as you like, Australia’s Mia Milan easily evokes the perfectly formed pop music of the Brill Building with “I Won’t Cry”. It’s a singalong summer song, without a doubt.

    My Favourite by Danny Darko


    DJ pop

    Danny Darko does not stray far from his dance floor roots with “My Favourite” sounding more like a remix of an original than an actual original song and it is Jova Radevska’s girlish, yet worldly, voice that actually gives the song its sonic appeal

    Little Fun by Theo Altieri


    Cheeky chappie

    A middle of the road pop song, “Little Fun” shows that Theo Altieri lacks neither energy nor clean living charm and I wouldn’t be surprised if the song found a home on what is left of daytime radio.

    Get It Right by Palumbo and the Funk


    Get down

    You can’t keep a good funk rock band down and London’s Palumbo and the Funk duly get down on it with “Get It Right”. The playing is in the groove, right enough, but the song needs a more distinctive lead voice if it is ever to escape the wedding reception dance floor.

    A Little Of What You Fancy by Lola Lamour


    Glamour gal

    Immaculately presented, as we have come to expect of Miss Lola Lamour, “A Little Of What You Fancy” takes us so far back in time that any gentleman would feel obliged to remove his hat in deference to this spirited three minute revival of fifties glamour. The lady is a star.

    Equinox by Girobabies


    Smarties

    One of the few bands in Glasgow to look forwards rather than backwards, the Girobabies hit another one into the back of the net with “Equinox” and, when you think about it, you can’t really go wrong when you have lyrics that are sharp and intelligent, jagged guitars and a manic beat that just calls out to your feet. In fact that fact is so obvious that you have to wonder why more bands don’t follow the same path. Most bands aren’t the Girobabies though.

    Dance With Anyone by I Am Harlequin


    Dancing shoes

    Nicely retro in outlook, as any good dance song seems to be these days, London’s I Am Harlequin puts her electro heart into “Dance With Anyone” just like Whitney Houston would have done back in the day and, if I had a handbag, my feet would be shuffling round it right now. Whatever happened to Stacey Q anyway?

    Somehow by Smokey Joe & The Kid


    French hip hoppers

    They would have to be French. What other explanation could there be for successfully adding vintage style to hip hop without actually appearing contrived? “Somehow” shows that Smokey Joe and The Kid know that being lyrically street wise doesn’t necessarily stop you from being high on life.
