  1. Fields - If You Fail We All Fail

    Fields - If You Fail We All Fail

    Fields will blow your mind in the most spectacular way possible. It's just how the Icelandics do it.

  2. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - War Of The Worlds

    Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - War Of The Worlds

    No it's not about martians invading, although it would be slightly more interesting if it was.

  3. MTV Brand Spanking New Music Tour

    MTV has made a killing out of staging events that pick the best of the year's breakthrough artists, shoving them in a venue that's far too big for them, and then filming it.

  4. The Others - The Truth That Hurts

    The Others - The Truth That Hurts

    Now, see, if we were The Others, we wouldn't have chosen that for the name of our comeback single.

  5. Scissor Sisters, SECC, Glasgow

    At pauses between segments, we are treated to lessons, on such subjects as releasing our inner child, Celtic clans and a feather boa massacre.

  6. The Maccabees - First Love

    The Maccabees - First Love

    First proper single 'First Love' is astounding - a cross between The Futureheads sobbing into their beer and Damon Albarn going all shy and tongue-tied.

  7. The Zutons - It’s The Little Things We Do

    The Zutons - It’s The Little Things We Do

    A cheerful song to brighten your mood, but may be best avoided if you are actually suffering from a major hangover.

  8. Juliette and the Licks - Sticky Honey

    Juliette and the Licks - Sticky Honey

    If you're going to depend on your frontwoman for recognition, then produce her so she sounds like she looks.

  9. The Rumble Strips - Cardboard Coloured Dreams EP

    The Rumble Strips - Cardboard Coloured Dreams EP

    The Rumble Strips need a lot more spark if they're going down the Northern Soul route, as it's just all too flat.

  10. Snow Patrol - Set the Fire to the Third Bar

    Snow Patrol - Set the Fire to the Third Bar

    Gary Lightbody’s lugubrious near-drone and Martha’s distinctive, haunting tones combine to perfection.

  11. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy - Cold And Wet

    Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy - Cold And Wet

    In an age when we are being engulfed by 'new-rave' and multi-layered angular guitar bands, it is nice to occasionally stop dancing, remove the neon, and just sit back to enjoy a simpler pleasure.

  12. Tapes ‘n Tapes -  Omaha

    Tapes ‘n Tapes -  Omaha

    With a sound refreshingly different from the barn-dance craziness of first single 'Insistor', 'Omaha' is a dreamy, mellow sort of track.

  13. Oasis - Stop The Clocks

    Oasis - Stop The Clocks

    On reflection, the anthems of old, such as 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' and 'Live Forever', feel a bit stale now... you realise the (relatively) more thoughtful songs have aged the best.

  14. Thom Yorke - Analyse

    Thom Yorke - Analyse

    'Analyse' is decent stuff, but it feels like Yorke’s just flicked the autopilot switch.

  15. 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.
