    Give A Little Love by Lunchbox

    Fluffy sweets

    The lightweight end of the indie pop musical spectrum has never been afraid of the sun and Lunchbox bask in the warmth of the California sunshine with “Give A Little Love” reminding these ears of no less than the pop perfection of early period Marshall Crenshaw. All that lo-fi candy floss may well rot your teeth but their emotional attachment to melody is to be commended.

    Calon Peiriant by Gwenno

    Welsh wonder woman

    A handy Welsh dictionary translated “Calon Peiriant” into “Robot Heart” so it is perhaps unsurprising that Gwenno has given us a song supported on a platform of minimalist electronics. This is a downbeat song but Gwenno’s voice is so full of wistful warmth that she will make you believe that you can actually find happiness in those few moments of freedom left amongst the urban oppression.

    Grow Down by Kate in the Kettle

    Grown up folk

    “Grow Down” is the kind of folk song that starts off sounding so fragile that it gains a near devotional quality but Kate in the Kettle quickly whips some passion into it before a delicate fade into the musical equivalent of a sunset finally puts the song in your pocket. I am charmed indeed.

    Taped Off The Radio by The Ragamuffins

    England's finest

    The Ragamuffins never fail to disappoint as one of the last practitioners of right down the line pop music to survive in Englandshire and “Taped Off The Radio” decorates their song writing talents with a dash of funk just like they used to do back in the days when there was a music industry. Time, fellow believers, to sing along.

    Drunken Blues by The Beautiful Game

    Trendy Londoners

    A thoroughly polite piece of indie pop from London’s The Beautiful Game, “Drunken Blues” has prominent hints of The Smiths and Glasgow guitar pop from the good old days in its musical motivations. That, I would imagine, will put a smile on the face of many a trendy young man.

    Arrival by Tetra

    Alternative rock

    “Arrival” proves to be a rather restrained song that hides the musical talents of Glasgow alternative rock band Tetra under the proverbial bushel. That may, of course, have been the plan all along but I think it is time for someone to let them play with matches. Guitar abuse is, after all, not a crime as long as you turn up the heat while you do it.
