Hooton Tennis Club - Kathleen Sat On The Arm Of Her Favourite Chair
From the Wirral and sounding a bit Pavement and a bit Teenage Fanclub. And that's a very good thing. This is the latest single from the acclaimed album Highest Point In Cliff Town.
Dog, Paper, Submarine - Ms Moonlet
Now sounding more Dinosaur Jr, some Swedes. This is off a 7-track EP/mini-album called Signal From Kepler-22B
Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures - Berlin
Another collaboration between house favourites The Wave Pictures and French chanteur Stanley Brinks. Their new LP is called My Ass and is out in a couple of weeks.
The Fall - Auto Chip 2014-2016
Here's your ten minutes of The Fall. Uniquely British, more uniquely Manchester. If it's possible to be more unique... Anyway, this is off their last LP, Sub-Lingual Tablet, which came out in May. Their 31st.
Lush Rimbaud - G Spot
To Italy now, Ancona more precisely, for something genial and pleasant. This is off L/R which is out on October 1.
The Iain Duncan Smiths - What Difference Does It Make (If All Our Testimonies Are Fake)
Off the album The Devil's Songs: The Very Worst Of The Iain Duncan Smiths, a four-piece take Smiths songs and turn them into satire on the DWP. I spoke to them for a piece on IBWM which should tell you all you need to know.
Los and The Deadlines - Feel At Ease
A multi-national four-piece based in London off their LP Perfect Holiday. Not easily categorisable, just jolly good.
Bicep - Just
Belfast now for some electronica. Off an EP of the same name which came out in May.
The Reverse Cowgirls - Cry Cry
And now some filthy garage rock from Glasgow. Outskirts came out in July.
The Fall - Dedication Not Medication
And if you thought the previous record sounded like The Fall, here's The Fall. Probably my favourite track off Sub-Lingual Tablet, and it's up against some strong competition. It's one of their best.
Tellison - Tact Is Dead
Back to London now for this which I like a lot. Hope Fading Lightly comes out on Friday.
Kagoule - Made Of Concrete
Highly-rated Nottingham band whose album Urth came out in July. You'll be hearing these a lot. Not just here - everywhere.
Kryten - Upping Doses
Yes I was intrigued by the name and yes it is. They're from Aberfeldy, out Perth way in Scotland, a 2-piece and the album is Soda Jerk and it's out now.
Astro - Druida
And finally, some electronica from Chile. Chicos De La Luz - Boys of the light - came out in July.
Here's that on YouTube:
Hoping for more inspiration next week.
