    Bedsit by The Rusbies

    Have you ever?

    A back to basics song, “Bedsit” proceeds with determination along the post punk trail pausing only at Pete Shelley’s house to load up with some lyrical inspiration. That wry humour serves The Rusbies well however and their beer drinking honesty also shines through. “Bedsit” is, without a doubt, a Friday night song.

    Silence Myself by Fable

    Click cool

    “Silence Myself” is a song made up of little more than minimalist electro and attitude. That said, Fable’s emotive approach to the art of singing subsumes the hypnotic simplicity of the song into the conventions of cabaret leaving your ears duly filled with melancholy.

    How Long Blues by Sheila K Cameron

    Enigma

    On the surface of it, “How Long Blues” is a traditional blues song but, guided by the voice of the ever enigmatic Sheila K Cameron, it is freed of the dead weight of conventionality and turned instead into the song of a siren. Class is where it is at. The song is available from Bandcamp.

    Obviously by The Black Denims

    Exam revision

    Throwing themselves, with some vigour, backwards into the time of rock ‘n’ roll, Glasgow’s The Black Denims snap their style fingers, slick back their hair and swagger through “Obviously” like a band on a mission. Unless my ears deceive me, they are made of all natural ingredients too with a right on the money horn section keeping these tired ears interested. May the force be with them and, should the force also be with you, the song is available from Bandcamp.

    Blood Mirage by Crown Larks

    Further up

    If you have six minutes of your time going spare then you could do worse that spend it in the company of Chicago’s Crown Larks. “Blood Mirage” rambles with merciless magnificence, a flagrant disregard for fashion and insolent untidiness on a journey down Manzarek drive towards the inevitable car crash ending. My head hurts like Beefheart and its not even sunrise.
