Calgary’s Faux Fur give us today’s #onegoodthing, with this slice of pop-infused post-punk.
Rough Palms rolls along like the work of fellow Canadians Viet Cong, but there’s less of the Joy Division darkness and angles on show here, with a more straightforward approach to the genre.
There are some fits and starts in the second half that could jar, but the band just pull it off.
Brighton’s indie-pop darlings Fear Of Men give us today’s #onegoodthing.
The b-side to their single Mosaic, this track has proved particularly tough to shift from mind.
Your Side ebbs and flows on a sea of delicious lo-fi(ish) indie-pop, akin to Camera Obscura if they’d taken a valium. It’s simply gorgeous…
They say first impressions can be deceptive and I certainly didn’t hold out much hope for a song title Heart Full Of Beef, but my fears were allayed on this track from Daisy Victoria.
With psych and shoegazey leanings and a booming vocal, the track grabs you by the throat after its spiky and almost innocuous intro and never lets go.
If you’re looking for a touchpoint, think the midpoint between Savages and The Duke Spirit.
There’s a dash of psych to the more traditional garage-rock sound of Love L.U.V. on this track.
In My Daydreams barrels along, topped with perfectly cut vocals and backed the odd flourish on some seriously fuzzed out guitars.
Thrashing guitars and thumping drums collide on today’s #onegoodthing.
Bruce and Carl‘s Hey You is a slab of garage-tinged punk-pop that is lovably ramshackle and a bit of a toe-tapper.
New Zealanders Brown give us today’s #onegoodthing, with this lo-fi track that melds post-punk and bedroom pop.
Picking Out A Shirt For Work is undeniably catchy and is the perfect duration to leave you wanting more.
Richard Hawley meets Johnny Cash in today’s #onegoodthing, which comes courtesy of Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene.
Curtains Of Zagra is an indie-folk epic that also has echoes of a lightened up Nick Cave that rolls and rumbles along a catchy menagerie of guitars, horns and piano with a story that is the midpoint between the mystical mind of Cave and the rural and real ruminations of Hawley.
Yes, Daddy from The Sweets is a gentle indie-rocker to start proceedings this week.
There’s a dash of surf-pop sprinkled over a track that oozes 80′s cult band Orange Juice – which is certainly no bad thing.
The rest of this mini-album is also full of lo-fi indie delights.
Pared back indie-pop from Copenhagen in the shape of I’m Sorry by Eerie Glue gives us today’s #onegoodthing.
It’s rough around the edges, but that’s part of the appeal, adding to the DIY feel of the track.
Don’t you just love it when a song that you had completely forgotten about surreptitiously slips back into your consciousness?
And that’s precisely what happened with Boy, Look At What You Can’t Have Now by Darren Hayman and Emma Kupa.
It’s a gorgeous blend of indie, folk and twee-pop; imagine a harder edged Camera Obscura or Belle & Sebastian with less liberal use of strings.
