Singles of the Week

Calvin Harris feat. Tinie Tempah

Ridiculous tune, with a ridiculous video (which is NSFW if you're reading this on Monday morning) from an album which has already sold 16 million (it sez here) singles internationally. Stick that in your limited edition of 250 7"s and smoke it.

Don Broco
Public service announcement: here's a new video from melodic rockers Don Broco. (I hate this stuff - I mean, the bass player even finger-picks!)

John Wheeler
How someone as musically astute as Hayseed Dixie frontman John Wheeler could inflict this dismal effort on the world is staggering. From the terrible, noodling piano through the kind of guitar breaks that have been irritating hotel lounge bar customers for decades, this is utterly woeful. Avoid.

Karl Bartos
Being one quarter of the classic Kraftwerk line-up gives you a certain kudos. 'Atomium' has a slightly anachronistic air, suggesting a sense of robotic modernism that never really came to pass - and one which already seems dated. Fans of this kind of European aesthetic will lap this up.


Do we really need another alternative synth pop/rock act? THUMPERS certainly think so if their debut single 'Dancing's Done' is anything to go by. It's sharply done and no doubt will get taken to immediately by fans of the genre but, for us, it's all a bit a case of been there, done that.

Single of the Week

Marc Carroll

This lead off single from Irish singer-songwriter Marc Carroll's latest album Stone Beads & Silver is a hauntingly beautiful slice of sweeping Americana with Carroll's gruff delivery adding the kind of gravitas that the thoughtful lyrics deserve. Mean, moody, majestic and marvellous.
