    Milk & Honey by Kerchief


    Integrity Bound

    Clearly possessed of lyrical integrity, Kerchief takes emotional confusion and reflections on life asset acquisition as the fuel for her song “Milk & Honey”. Her musical influences are more urban than, say, Ani DiFranco but she has the same strength of character. One to watch, perhaps.

    Every Cloud by Aubrey Whitfield


    Identikit

    Suitably intense and sincere, Aubrey Whitfield does what singer songwriters do when they get a band behind them and “Every Cloud” is therefore stamped with confidence and calculated mainstream appeal. The song, however, fails to match the effort that has gone into making it acceptable to the masses.

    Oh Josephine by Vienna Ditto


    Electro smart

    Pleasingly skewed towards the house of art, Vienna Ditto show that there is more to electro pop than just locking it to the beat with singer Hatty Taylor sparking the match that sets “Oh Josephine” on fire and sends it off to burn the nightclub down to the ground.

    Cry Baby by Phone Joan


    Norwegian good

    Surprisingly robust and driven inexorably forward by a sleazy combination of keyboards and guitar, “Cry Baby” is the kind of song that would likely make a band’s name. The band’s name - and you should be interested in them - is Phone Joan, they are from Norway and Carina Moen’s powerhouse voice is clearly capable of leading a good man astray. A big thumbs up to this one.

    Riot Canal by Axis/Orbit


    That's entertainment

    Determinedly time travelling, Axis/Orbit right click on the past and send their song “Riot Canal” meandering off on a journey through the land of the psychedelic instrumental with only a short visit to krautrock city diverting them from guitar solo nirvana. Alternatively, they could just get their collective hair cut and join the army.

    Carry On by Couer De Pirate


    Commercial

    Rather more modern in style than her previous releases, “Carry On” neatly illustrates that Coeur De Pirate knows what success in the American market demands. She even sings in English to make this very commercial, if somewhat anodyne, electro pop song enticing to the download capable masses.

    Who Needs Love? by Sinny


    Heart and soul

    Throwing her all into the atmosphere, Sinny uses her voice and piano to inject the necessary emotional anguish straight into her song “Who Needs Love?” with the result being a confident walk down the road that once led Sia to stardom.

    Slow Motion Love Affair by Lola Lamour


    Class act

    “Slow Motion Love Affair” is the kind of song that could only be associated with haute couture and the good life and, harking as she does back to the days when a lady was just that, Lola Lamour proves that style, as always, is where it is at.
