    Hush by Hawk

    Melodic minstrels

    Mixing the ethereal with the primitive may not be unusual in the world of folk music but it is in the post rock world so “Hush” therefore demonstrates that Hawk do not lack courage in their musical endeavours and, like so many things classed as beautiful, this fragile song crumbles into nothing at the end.

    Trouble by Banana Beach

    Maudlin

    “Trouble” is a mid-paced and inoffensive example of Scandinavian style electro pop that looks inward for musical energy and finds that someone forgot to charge the battery.

    Bed On Fire by Butch Walker

    Looking skywards

    Laidback soft rock is still a soft spot in the affections of many people and it is they who will best appreciate the emotional drama that Butch Walker brings to “Bed On Fire”. So if they are you, pull up the collar on your battered leather jacket for it is cold outside.

    For We Are Born by Jim Byrne

    Sentimental soldier

    It is the time of year for sentimentality and Jim Byrne is the man to serve it up between slices of wholemeal bread. “For We Are Born” is, however, a song rather darker than you might expect with the underlying message more akin to Leonard Cohen than Bing Crosby. No doubt about it though, Val Doonican would have appreciated the irony in that and taken this song as his own. The song is available for download from Bandcamp.

    Saint-Tropez by Duplodeck

    Summer song

    Duplodeck serve up a song of fuzzy lazy summer indie pop goodness that will likely make you think you are on a beach somewhere. “Saint-Tropez” is the name of the song and it is infused with both sunshine and lo-fi grooviness. The sunglasses are on.

    Heroin For My heart by In All Honesty

    Still waters

    Although outwardly lightweight indie folksters, In All Honesty are the proud possessors of altogether weightier lyrics with “Heroin For My Heart” embracing obsession in a manner that would suggest a world view more appropriate to the streets of New York.
