    Beneath The Shadow of the King by Steps of Doe

    Folk fawns

    Eerily conventional, “Beneath The Shadow of the King” easily demonstrates that, with their eminently aurally pleasing female vocals, Steps of Doe have what it takes to uplift the spirits of any folk festival audience attendee. It is, therefore, a song with heart. Available as a free download from Soundcloud.

    Ivory Tower by Cook Doo

    Northern rock

    Rough and energetic, Aberdeen’s Cook Doo draw on all the best bluesy influences to give “Ivory Tower” its beer soaked impact. Not subtle but their collective musical heart undoubtedly beats like that of a lion.

    You Don't Deserve Me by BLKMGK

    Hands out

    Balancing their appeal somewhere between the street and the dancefloor, Sweden’s BLKMGK neatly wrap their song “You Don’t Deserve Me” in rap and reggae decorated wrapping paper. They are probably the most exciting band to come out of Sweden since Alcazar.

    Tokyo by Warehouse Eyes

    Urban chic

    An amiably drifting soundtrack to those nights alone with your headphones, Warehouse Eyes quietly convince with their mix of electronic ambience, masculine guitars and sugary vocals. “Tokyo” will, if you are so inclined, make you scratch that goatee beard that you so carefully grew and ponder the wonders of the relationship you no longer have.

    Get It Together by Starfire Rainbow Jellybean

    Disco done down

    I’m not sure quite what to make of “Get It Together” as Starfire Rainbow Jellybean’s combination of west coast pop influences and their recreation of the sound of the heyday of disco seems less a homage to either than a deftly executed pastiche of both. That said, the lounge revival has made such efforts respectable even to critical ears.
