mp3: The Horrors – Scarlet Fields

The new album ‘Primary Colours’ by The Horrors is out today and it is an absolute cracker. They’ve shaken things up a lot from their last offering ‘Strange House’ in 2006. I’ve chosen the track ‘Scarlet Fields’ as an example of what the album has to give. Gorgeous guitar effects, euphoric keys, driving bass and drums and dark echoed vocals offering up the winning couplet:

‘see yourself, your image in the eyes of someone else
see yourself, your fears as they appear to someone else’

For Fans Of: Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain.

Buy: Primary Colours   CD / DLoad

Live: Electric Ballroom, Camden June 5th.

On Repeat: Everything Everything – Photoshop Handsome.

everything-everythingmp3: Everything Everything – Photoshop Handsome

This lucky guy caught Everything Everything of Manchester at Camden Crawl the other day and was impressed with their upfront, harmony heavy, math rock meets infectious guitar pop style. On further inspection the songs stand up just as well on record. It was a hard pick between this forthcoming single, the wonderfully titled, ‘Photoshop Handsome’ and their debut offering ‘Suffragette Suffragette’ but I’ve gone with the fresh out the oven one. Be warned it will get inside your head!

For Fans Of: Foals, Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Radiohead, Kate Bush, I could go on!

On Repeat: The Wave Pictures – Now You Are Preganant

mp3: The Wave Pictures – Now You Are Pregnant

Another on Repeat today comes from cheeky Northerners The Wave Pictures and their excellent track ‘Now You Are Pregnant’. I’m a big Johnny Cash fan so for me to overlook the J.C. bashing chorus takes a lot but this song is worth it and it’s a pretty funny analogy even if I don’t agree with it. I’m talking about the line ‘Johnny Cash died today and you’d say it’s not like Elvis, it’s not like Elvis though is it and you would be right’. Look out for new album ‘Leave It Alone’ coming soon and preceded by a single of the same name out today.

For Fans Of: The Smiths, Jeffrey Lewis, Jeremy Warmsley.

Go See: The Wave Pictures @ ICA, April 15th.

Micachu - Jewellery

mp3: Micachu – Curly Teeth

‘Curly Teeth’ is taken from little Londoner’s Micahcu’s stunning debut album ‘Jewellery’. It’s got a dirty bass line, some far Eastern sounding acoustic guitar and understated vocals. Just the right combination of sloppy and spot on.

For Fans Of: The Beta Band, Kid Carpet, Metronomy.

Choir Of Young Believers

mp3: Choir Of Young Believers – Action/Reaction

So I’ve already posted this  Choir Of Young Believers song up in my review of SXSW 2009 but this song has me hooked so much that I want to wave it in your faces one more time to make sure you don’t miss it! Gorgeous vocals, hypnotic drums. A beautiful warm noise.

A little bit of background – the band are from Copenhagen and in their full glory they are: Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, Anders Rhedin, Jakob Milung, Cæcilie Trier, Lasse Herbst, Casper Henning Hansen, Bo Rande, Mette Sand Hersoug, Nicolai Kleinerman and Sonja Labianca. Wowzers! They recently won Best New Act at the Danish equivalent to the Brits. I’m keeping eagle eyed for any UK tour dates that come up so watch this space.

For Fans Of: Fleet Foxes, Peter Bjorn & John, Midlake, Fleetwood Mac.

buy: Action/Reaction 7″

On Repeat: Amanda Palmer – Leeds United

mp3: Amanda Palmer – Leeds United

Amanda Palmer used to be one half of Punk/German Cabaret duo the Dresden Dolls who were pretty big back in the early 90’s. She’s now going solo and this is an offering from her album ‘Who Killed Amanda Palmer’. This lady has a big voice, it won’t be for everyone but I can’t get enough of this song – loud horns, loud vocals, lyrics like ‘who needs love when there’s Southern Comfort?’ = A lot of fun.

Oh she dated a musician (?) from Leeds and got thrown into being a Leeds supporter for a while apparently!
