Singles of the Week

Rather than a shared effort, one of the minions at TMF towers will cast their ears over the week’s offering. First up you have me and, in a break from recent tradition, the winner is right up here at the top.<p><b><u><center>Single of the Week</b></u></center><p><b>Nina Nesbitt</b> -<i> Selfies</i><br>An ever so slightly self-referential ‘Selfies’ from TMF fave <b>Nina Nesbitt</b>. A bitter sweet take on the modern day obsessions with taking a photograph of oneself. (Personally, I get a friend or lackey to use my old reliable box brownie, but hey, I’m old). <b>Nesbitt’s</b> dulcet tones soothe you in to submission as the perky pop beat pulls you along for the ride. Lovely stuff and with her excellent debut album <i>Peroxide</i> also upon us this could be <b>Nina’s</b> year.<br><center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/fXh8B4yWVKk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><p><b><u><center>The Rest</b></u></center><p><b>Matsuki Ayumu</b> - <i>Cold Kills You</i><br>I haven’t got a clue what his saying but it really doesn’t matter as ‘Cold Will You’ is a quirky and thoroughly enjoyable piece of ramshackle Japanese alt-pop that takes that can’t fail to make you smile. More like this please.<br><center><iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/119608075&color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_artwork=true"></iframe><p></center><b>Will Varley </b>–<i>Wedding and Wars</i><br>The quality from singer-songwritery folkie types can be really hit and miss but the latest from <b>Will Varley</b> is a wonderfully dark and humorous run through of the history of the world in a mere four minutes and is accompanied by a fantastically retro 8 bit gaming video that will find fans among geeks and folkies alike. <p><center><iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/jlAm40MvlcA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><p><b>Holy Esque</b> – <i>Silences</i><br>Normally you can’t beat a nice bit of fuzzed up 80s style jangly guitar indie pop but this latest effort from Glaswegians <b>Holy Esque</b> has a strangely muted arrangement and production that doesn’t let their talents shine through. Better luck next time.<br><center><iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/129392030&color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_artwork=true"></iframe></center><p><b>David E. Sugar</b> - <i>Pushing To Be First</i><br>What could have been a soothing slice of glacial, gently melodic synth pop is mangled by the hideously over produced vocals. Don’t forget kids, less sometimes really can be more.<br><center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/dT5sIcDXtTY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><p><b>The Twang</b> – <i>Larry Lizard</i><br>Last, and definitely least, we have the latest opus from 3rd division indie lad rockers <b>The Twang</b> who are still pitching their inexplicably popular wares to a loyal audience. Deathly dull, derivative and utterly forgettable.<br><center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/NFB0L7iXTU0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center><p>That’s your lot for this week, plaudits and brickbats to the usual address.
