  1. The Triffids - Calenture

    The Triffids - Calenture

    The rehearsal demos may lack the power pop production of the original album, but are nevertheless utterly compelling listening; the landscapes darker and more mysterious, the characters wearier and more brooding.

  2. The Hours - Back When You Were Good

    The Hours - Back When You Were Good

    This single has a effortless melodic ebb and flow to it, in common with all The Hours' songs so far.

  3. Jesse Malin - Glitter In The Gutter

    Jesse Malin - Glitter In The Gutter

    The names of those lending their vocal talents to Jesse Malin's latest offering read like the dream guestlist of any music fanatic, ranging from Dave Grohl to Bruce Springsteen.

  4. The View - Hats Off To The Buskers

    The View - Hats Off To The Buskers

    Far more talented than their singles give them credit for, The View are set to be the biggest anthemic group since the Libertines.

  5. Switches - Drama Queen

    Switches - Drama Queen

    We should all be jolly grateful to Switches who arrive not a moment too soon, ready and willing to set their guitars to 'loud', their choruses to 'bouncy' and their haircuts to 'creative'.

  7. Sadie Ama - Fallin’

    Sadie Ama - Fallin’

    It's a run of the mill song with nothing spectacular about it and would perhaps be better suited to a b-side or an album track, rather than a debut single.

  8. The Good, the Bad and the Queen

    The Good, the Bad and the Queen

    With Danger Mouse - the man with the musical Midas touch - overseeing proceedings, Albarn has ensured that this new project certainly looks good on paper.

  9. Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

    Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

    There's no ripping up the Kaiser Chiefs rulebook, but rather a very posh reprint with a few extra chapters on the end.

  10. Jamie T - Panic Prevention

    Jamie T - Panic Prevention

    It is both chaotic and calculated, and you're never sure if it all works because of some glorious happy accident or something approaching genius.

  11. Fall Out Boy - This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race

    Fall Out Boy - This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race

    Fall Out Boy appear to have finally grown up! We'll be taking them off our 'guilty pleasures' list and slapping them straight on the stereo.

  12. Damien Rice - Rootless Tree

    Damien Rice - Rootless Tree

    Every key change and chorus can be spotted three minutes before it happens, and the overall effect sounds like the soundtrack to a dinner party rather than a lovelorn cry for help.

  13. Interview: Cute Is What We Aim For

    Currently on their first UK headline tour, we catch up with the boys to discuss touring, dirty laundry, and, er, Westlife...

  14. The Enemy

    The Enemy

    The Enemy set the record straight about white jeans, politics and music, and the tribute to their mates that is 'It's Not Ok'.

  15. Big In 2007: The Wombats

    Big In 2007: The Wombats

    Gloriously anthemic indie-pop from this unsigned Liverpool trio.
