  1. Zero 7 - Futures

    Zero 7 - Futures

    The acoustic guitar riff throughout the song creates images of driving on an open road, the background synth and vocals giving it a dreamy 60s summery feeling.

  2. Scissor Sisters - I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’

    Scissor Sisters - I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’

    This is pop at its most all-encompassing, and most entertaining. Shall we make the joke about how ironically it does actually make you feel like dancing? Oh, we just did.

  3. The Longcut - Airtight Session EP

    The Longcut - Airtight Session EP

    All the tracks here stand out for being original soundscapes, from the keyboard/guitar duel of 'Idiot Check' to the repetitive guitar screech of 'Lonesome No More!'.

  5. Sohodolls - Stripper

    Sohodolls - Stripper

    A gang of Suzi Quatro wannabes who sound like they once went in to a sex shop and thought the very act put them at the forefront of female sexual liberation. Rubbish.

  6. Peter, Bjorn and John - Young Folks

    Peter, Bjorn and John - Young Folks

    On second look the wispy, dreamy vocals begin to sidle in to your head, and then you'll find yourself trying to whistle along to that damn refrain.

  7. On The Buses: August 2006

    On The Buses: August 2006

    We might well know what the music they play sounds like, but what do they listen to between gigs?

  8. Yo La Tengo - Mr Tough

    Yo La Tengo - Mr Tough

    If played at a rather more frenetic pace, you could seriously imagine 'Mr Tough' being performed by Scissor Sisters. And that's a good thing.

  9. The Strokes - You Only Live Once

    The Strokes - You Only Live Once

    It's the third single from The Strokes third long-player, and it's the usual drawn-out style of vocal delivery from Julian Casablancas, the chorus is great and the guitars rocking.

  10. The Holloways - Two Left Feet

    The Holloways - Two Left Feet

    The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys have a lot to answer for. Like influencing loads of bands, including The Holloways.

  11. The Rapture - Get Myself Into It

    The Rapture - Get Myself Into It

    'Get Myself Into It' is the first slice taken from 'Pieces Of The People We Love', and boy is it hot.

  12. The Sunshine Underground - Raise The Alarm

    The Sunshine Underground - Raise The Alarm

    Singles 'Commercial Breakdown' and 'I Ain't Losing Any Sleep' are obvious floorfillers, with 'Somebody's Always Getting In The Way' turning things down a few notches.

  13. The Victorian English Gentlemens Club - S/T

    The Victorian English Gentlemens Club - S/T

    'My Son Spells Backwards' is as cute as it's going to get here, Adam Taylor's yelping matched perfectly by the deliberately harsh backing.

  14. V Festival, Hylands Park, Chelmsford 19/08/06

    It's not often that you'll find Clickmusic in Essex. Not that we've got anything against the county.

  15. Bullets and Octane, Chain Reaction, Anaheim

    While the band aren't exactly reinventing the wheel, they are, however, a nice blend of old school metal and punk.
