  4. Brakes - Cease And Desist

    Brakes - Cease And Desist

    There is certainly a stateside lilt to the track though, and the bands recent decampment to Nashville has obviously left a big impression.

  5. Jet, Hammersmith Apollo, London

    As Nic Cester sends his vocal chords towards some sort of surgery the band remain somewhat static on stage, due to their individual vocal duties, and let the light display provide the spectacle.

  6. Howling Bells - A Low Happening

    Howling Bells - A Low Happening

    The most striking element of the song is the silky yet sultry vocals of Juanita Stein, which in parts could easily be mistaken as being the dulcet tones of PJ Harvey.

  7. Oom - Reliable Friend

    Oom - Reliable Friend

    The beautiful, fragile vocals of Debbie Clare are teamed with chunky guitar chords and a sinister back beat, making comparisons to Massive Attack or Portishead inevitable.

  13. Brett Anderson - Love is Dead

    Brett Anderson - Love is Dead

    As singles go, 'Love is Dead' is unremarkable, and in terms of production it merely hints at a wall-of-sound approach without ever committing to Scott Walker style grandiosity.

  15. The Ponys - Turn The Lights Out

    The Ponys - Turn The Lights Out

    Although the overall sound is far less lo-fi than previous albums, there is still the impression of a garage band who have just discovered a keyboard and few new effect pedals.
