The third Maps 10" sees us catch the Northampton wunderkind just as everyone else seems to have decided his is a good bandwagon to jump on. Is it for the right reasons?
This no-longer-so-fledging Brighton duo have now released a grand total of nine songs. How does their last single before double digit tracklistings are possible see them shape up?
Do you like good music? Music you can dance to, with a bit of passion? How about if that music makes your ears bleed a little. Still interested?
We could mention Sigur Rós or, I dunno, múm or something, there's probably some connection there but they probably get it all the time. So. Instead. Here's Einóma.
Not an ode to the retail arm of the world's orangest mobile phone network. At least we don't think so.
The second single from Sheffield's super sharp six-strong renegades from the Ministry Of Education. Playground violence expected.
Do you still have those 3D glasses you used to get in packets of Frosties? Cuz We Are The PHYSICS are about to throw red and green shapes all over your screen..
The song webmasters dread having to refer to being as it has the longest title in the world, yet no spaces. Maybe we should veto it completely, what do you think?
Free to download singles by bands that are bound to be bigger than Jesus Jones can only be a good thing, right?
Post rock meets art rock in a cinematic battle between passion and cynicism. With not a high insurance premium or scratched chassis in sight.
Simian may have seemed like a nice, polite band but Simian Mobile Disco are here to pimp slap your dad and put your mother on the game. What is the world coming to?
The sullen Norwegian noiseniks with enough members to invade Denmark are unleashed on a suspicious British public with their first widely available UK single.
The third 7" from Brighton's boy/girl drum/guitar duo and after the pace of their previous two you'd probably forgive them for taking their foot off the accelerator. Have they, though?
Hard to buy in shops but nigh impossible to avoid - presumably a bit like the bubonic plague back in the day. Could the breakthrough single by Klaxons be even bigger?
Are Tunng the purveyors of glitch-folk's most beautiful songs? Arguably. Is their latest single more fuel for that theory? We'll see.
Glasgow's newly re-named F.O. Machete (the slightly more PC version of their name) make stop start art rock you could set your watch to. Although what time it would tell you by the end is a different story.
