    Vultures by Delta Mainline


    Please please me

    Initially seeming so fey that irony must have been the true motivation for their song “Vultures” , Delta Mainline then neatly sidestep accusations of insubstantiality with a robust take it to the bridge and make those lighters wave in the air finale. Delta Mainline are the designer dress that you simply have to wear to all those festivals.

    Getting Outta Here by The Burnt Bridges


    West coast minstrels

    “Getting Outta Here” shows that Glasgow band The Burnt Bridges have the fighting spirit in them and, despite an obvious adoration for the three chord mantra of indie rock, they manage to punch above their weight and credit is duly given to the casually aggressive style of singer Mark O’Neil.

    My Friends by MaryLeigh Roohan


    Reflections

    Adrift in the currents of her own personal sea of melancholy, MaryLeigh Roohan once again makes the confessional melodic and, whilst perhaps not a song with immediate appeal, “My Friends” nonetheless provides all the proof you need that she is a performer possessed of both insight and intelligence.

    Marionette by The Division Men


    Shadows

    The Division Men turn up the acoustic atmosphere and inject “Marionette” with just enough of the shadows necessary to put Caroline Rippy Portillo’s voice into the spotlight. Indeed they ramble but it is a good thing that they do.

    Breathless by Roslyn Moore


    Young at heart

    Endearingly naturalistic in her approach, Roslyn Moore transcends the awkward electro pop foundations of “Breathless” and makes the song a matter of the heart. All good songs start there.

    Lucy by Sunshine & The Blue Moon


    Sunset strollers

    Kind of old fashioned yet still convincing, Sunshine and The Blue Moon roll with the flow all the way through their song “Lucy”. They’re not quite lava lamp but the good time rock vibe of the past is present and correct for all to hear.

    Listen To Me by Sacre Noir


    Gothic voices

    Formerly purveyors of lo-fi bedsit electronica, Edinburgh’s Sacre Noir maintain their links to both the shadows and the sequencer whilst injecting enough in the way of riffs and robust female vocals into “Listen To Me” to take their appeal all the way into the bleaker end of the rock pantheon. A mascara anthem if I ever heard one.

    Come With Me by Pat Nicholson


    Homegrown

    Despite claiming to be British folk rock, Pat Nicholson’s song “Come With Me” seems more akin to old school Nashville style country music with all that is musical being efficiently painted in shades of mellow. A song, therefore, that is easy as easy can be on the ear
