I found these whilst looking at Talulah Gosh things on Youtube. They do a cover of 'Don't Go Away' live, as well as a Rocketship song, and their drummer stands up and sings at the front of the stage. What can I say, I was hooked!

So I went and had a look and uncovered this EP, which I've just had a bit of a listen to and that's rather good as well.

They sound like I expected them to sound. They sound good.

Tonieee played us this round at humblebee's house earlier. They're so lovely!

They are aren't they? Downloaded them to listen to on a work to the shop on a miserable New Years Eve morning when I was feeling a bit down and by the time I got to the shop they'd cheered me up. Thanks Andy for pointing them out. Also Junk are great too.

I just found Shy Boys. I think I'm going to be listening to them a lot. I'm half way through their album and it sounds pretty good.

Returning to the international theme, Little Whirls - lazy lo-fi pop from Germany

Something else, something other

Carriages from Bristol



I like the mystery of it, that it teeters on the edge of daft but falls heroically into the realms of wonder and beauty... you'll either feel it or you won't

The other songs on the EP deserve your attention too: https://carriagescarriages.bandcamp.com ... averal-e-p

Gentle Brontosaurus from Madison, Wisconsin

Boy-girl vocals and songs tagged "dystopia", "apocalyptic" and "dinopop"... I like these guys a lot

This one reminds me of Owl + Mouse a bit:


This one's a bit more upbeat, with synths and time travel:

I came across this punky band while listening to a linux podcast:

https://bridgesplosion.bandcamp.com/

That never happens - the music's normally terrible.

The third track, But Your Kids Will Write Songs About Me, has the top three ingredients for a great song:

- less than a minute long

- terrible recording quality

- cool title

I heard something else off of her album on the radio today and was immediately rather taken with it. This is really lovely, sort of a laid back '70s power-pop thing. The record's out at the end of the month.

I enjoy Soft Science, female-fronted guitar pop out of Sacramento, CA.

(warning: the first video is seriously ugly)

Not indie pop, more like poppy progressive rock, but there's this:



A friend of mine is in the band, and the spoken word parts are done by a professor I've worked with at the Evergreen State College.

Not new, but new to me, I saw The Living End play last night and they were lovely and ramshackle and charming, which is as you'd expect from a band who feature Anna from the Middle Ones. Bandcamp here.

John T Angle and The Spirit Levels also played and it was the first time I'd seen the full band line up. They were more indiepop than I was expecting.

Rather taken with this. All the way from Philly and with members of Literature (though I like these better I think), MERCURY GIRLS!
