  1. Kasabian - Shoot The Runner

    Kasabian - Shoot The Runner

    Continuing from the thankful departure from baggy indie, 'Shoot The Runner' marches on with its steady beat and hand-claps.

  2. The Young Knives - Decision

    The Young Knives - Decision

    This is a bit of a departure from previous singles, as it's not a story as such, and the shimmering paranoia is no longer contained - it's exploded.

  3. Air Traffic - Never Even Told Me Her Name

    Air Traffic - Never Even Told Me Her Name

    Borrowing from the jolting Britpop formula that worked ten years ago, Air Traffic’s first proper release is that shouty but earnest thing Supergrass did on 'Alright'.

  4. The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldier

    The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldier

    Combining rasping vocals with an air of Led Zeppelin, 'Broken Boy Soldier' fuses together with immaculate timing.

  5. The Hours - Ali In The Jungle

    The Hours - Ali In The Jungle

    Having received critical acclaim from Jarvis Cocker, The Hours had a long way to go to meet our expectations.

  6. Kaiser Chiefs, Trabendo, Paris

    A short set is played tonight, but one with gusto and an obvious sense of satisfaction at showcasing what appears to be a large bulk of next year's album.

  7. Wolfmother

    As Wolfmother embark on their biggest UK tour, we caught up with frontman Andrew Stockdale. Subjects on the agenda: classic rock, Jackass tomfoolery, and Myspace.

  8. The Long Blondes - Once And Never Again

    The Long Blondes - Once And Never Again

    With the Arctic Monkeys in hibernation, The Long Blondes look like they're finally going to get the attention they deserve as Sheffield's latest export.

  9. King Creosote - You Are Could I EP

    King Creosote - You Are Could I EP

    The song itself is a bubbly tune but rather unfulfilling, as its mindless rhyming makes it sound almost amateurish.

  10. Battle, Cockpit, Leeds

    Although visually lacklustre, Battle are a good live band to catch - they just need to show the audience that they're enjoying their own music.

  11. Hot Club De Paris - Everyeveryeverything

    Hot Club De Paris - Everyeveryeverything

    'Everyeveryeverything' is a mixture of many different songs, which seem as if they were thrown in randomly, trusting to luck more than anything - luck did not prevail.

  12. Battle - Back to Earth EP

    Battle - Back to Earth EP

    Moody and ambient, striking guitar chords mix with synth sounds to create angsty tunes that vary between being subtle and slow building, to a mature rock sound.

  13. Comebacks

    If there's one thing the public loves even more than a cuddly TV personality recovering from a rocket-car-related near-death-experience, then it's a great comeback.

  14. Last Gang - Beat Of Blue

    Last Gang - Beat Of Blue

    As a debut, 'Beat Of Blue' does exactly what it says, and while it doesn't exactly make us think about its meaning, there's a clear blob of talent, which with a little refining and tweaking could become the new Kooks.

  15. Boy Kill Boy - Shoot Me Down

    Boy Kill Boy - Shoot Me Down

    Without even an attempt to evoke anything whatsoever, a dancefloor beat, or 'epic' indie chorus, 'Shoot Me Down' just feels lost.
