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: Telepathe – Can’t Stand It

mp3: Telepathe – Can’t Stand It

This Telepathe track is best listened to on a bright morning like the ones we’ve just started to get again, and preferably when still in a bit of a sleepy daze. The song is a perfect combination of dreamy synth, crashing cymbals, programmed beats and the irresistible vocals of the bizarrely named Busy Gangnes. Easy to see why David Sitek (TV On The Radio) decided to produce their excellent debut Dance Mother.

Buy Dance Mother from Rough Trade / 7 Digital

The Soft Pack – Nightlife

The Soft Pack used to be called The Muslims, yes it was a better name but it’s gone, let it go!

Their music is great, laid back and dance inducing all at the same time. They’re from San Diego and you can practically taste the sunshine in their music. They evidently like The Stooges a bit. I can’t stop playing Nightlife and it’s b-side Beside Myself, buy the 7-Inch and it’s beautifully embossed sleeve from Pure Groove and come to see them with me at Hoxton Bar and Grill this Thursday.

This song is epic. What a great guitar line and the guy’s voice is amazing. He’s called Dougy by the way. I don’t know a lot else at this stage apart from The Temper Trap are from Melbourne and they’ve just recorded their debut album with renowned UK producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, DJ Shadow, Bjork, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp, Kasabian). They’re also not tour shy so I’m looking forward to featuring them on musicmule sometime soon.

‘Sweet Disposition’ is the first snippet of the album they’ve released to whet our appetites for the rest of the record due out ‘in early 2009’.

Moreish like crack.
