    All The Money by Elvira Stitt

    Glasgow songbird

    Keyboard heavy as an emotive big ballad should be, “All The Money” provides more than enough evidence of Elvira Stitt’s ability to take her diminutive voice and, through musical prestidigitation, make it fill your heart.

    This Town's Too Big by Sunken Monkey


    A raucous and rowdy rock threesome from Lancashire, Sunken Money sound like the kind of band that would make an excellent soundtrack to a drunken Friday night and “This Town’s Too Big (For The Both Of Us)” is the proof of the pudding (or, more likely, the sauce on the kebab).

    Dear Sara by Emma Forman


    A Scottish singer songwriter with a heart? It would appear so and Emma Forman keeps it honest and, most likely personal, throughout the few minutes of acoustic fragility that lead her song “Dear Sara” out into the land of moonlight and things that could have been.

    Walk Alone by Lizzie and the Yes Men

    Fine wine

    Melodious, mid paced and obviously mature, “Walk Alone” highlights the deep and meaningful vibe that characterises London’s Lizzie and the Yes Men. The song is perhaps an unwise choice for a single, but makes for a fine album track for, in the final assessment, Lizzie and the Yes Men always were more of a relationship than a one night stand.

    Empty Room by Ash Code

    Electro shadows

    “Empty Room” is nothing if not a convincing attempt at resurrecting the relentless robot electro of the eighties with the dark and distant male vocals doing an equally convincing homage to the bleakness of Joy Division. Ash Code may therefore sound like they are on an old train but at least they are on the right track.

    Ewar Woowar by Jamie Flett

    Best foot forward

    Endearing casual in his approach, Jamie Flett meanders through “Ewar Woowar” like a man so enamoured with west coast psychedelic rock that a marriage proposal has to be on the cards. As always though, Mr Flett’s proper manly voice and those ever present hints of quirkiness provide all the evidence needed for a conviction.
