Despite the rather small shortlist this/last week, there were still some absolute crackers on display and album of the week could easily have gone any one of three ways. In the end I plumped for the classic indie sound of JAWS but I would also highly recommend checking out Priests and W. H. Lung
Playlist at the bottom.
JAWS – The Ceiling
Album of the week – Classic indie from the Birmingham trio that’s a joy to listen to.
Rating: 7.5/10 – Read full review
Priests – The Seduction Of Kansas
Excellent female fronted post-punk pop that was a hair’s breadth from being my Album of the Week. Check it out for the sake of your own well being.
W. H. Lung – Incidental Music
Electronic-heavy indie pop that fans of last year’s storming TVAM album will most certainly enjoy.
Cowboy Flying Saucer – Travel Lodge
Occasionally bizarre psych rock with some nice squelchy electronic touches and a dash of The Fall in the vocals.
Circa Waves – What’s It Like Over There?
Anthemic pop with indie-EMO undertones. Enjoyable listen but a tiny bit too commercial for me to fall completely in love with.
Here’s a playlist of all of the above if you want to listen to this week’s selected new releases.
