Newer Sounds

Inoffensive, danceable alterna-pop? The kind that seems to be popular with the kids these days. And adults I suppose.

For fans of Empire of the Sun, Capital Cities and the like.

Fenech-Soler - Last Forever. iTunes.

On Break

For a band formed during a "break" of another band, they have a pretty large body of work.

Cinerama - Torino. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

This release isn't particularly new. But the band is new to me.

And they are very, very good.

Slant 6 meets Siouxsie? Not sure if that comparison works for everyone, but it works for me.

PINS - Luvu4lyf. iTunes.

Like most music from Iceland this is interesting. It is worth checking out. One part Mum. One part pop vocals.

It should be noted I'm pretty obsessed with Beyonce's "Halo." And this cover does not disappoint.

Hjaltalin - Crack In a Stone. iTunes.

Newer Sounds

I'm instantly reminded of The Smiths. But at the same time they don't sound like The Smiths. High Hazels take me back. Like so many other current acts. But they are certainly modern and stand on their own.

High Hazels - Hearts Are Breaking. iTunes.

Missed Opportunity

Bold played last week. I should have seen them. But I didn't. I never have. Even though they've been playing out on and off for a few years.

Bold - Looking Back. Used.
