Out This week - 8th July 2013

Caviare Days - When The Light Is Breaking

Made up of two Swedish sisters, Caviare Days have a penchant for '60s-inspired psychedelia and new single 'When The Light Is Breaking' is a fabulous mixture of The Byrds and Jefferson Airplane. It's released as a single this week and will be on their new album which is due in the autumn. If you recognise the male voice, that will be former Soundtrack Of Our Lives frontman Ebbot Lundberg.

Nude Beach - What Can Ya Do

Back in May, Brooklyn band Nude Beach announced that they would be releasing a new 7" single this week. They gave us the B-side 'I'm Giving Up' to stream, but it wasn't until recently that we found out what the A-side was, so here it is, it's called 'What Can Ya Do'. It definitely makes for a single with two very different tracks, as here they tackle more conventional rock music, and win.

Glasvegas - If

It was slightly odd how Glasvegas seemed to fall from grace so quickly, as there was really no reason for them to do so, except perhaps the general downturn in sales of guitar music. New album 'Later...When The TV Turns To Static' is due in September and will maybe see them find favour with the press again. Single 'If' certainly contains enough of their trademark melody, passion and distortion to do so.

Throwing Up - Big Love

London quartet Throwing Up have decided to call their new album 'Over You', and if you say the band name and album title together it might not sound as it was intended... or maybe that was their plan. Anyway, it's full of garage-punk tunes and one of the best of the bunch is the frenetic 'Big Love' which takes '60s girl group melodies and smothers them in a ton of guitars.

Girl One And The Grease Guns - Jessica 6

You may have to be of a certain age for the name Jessica 6 to mean anything to you, but for the uninitiated, she was a character in the 1976 film 'Logan's Run' and was played by Jenny Agutter. 'Jessica 6' is the second single from Girl One And The Grease Guns and is the sound of classic indiepop. They say themselves that they're influenced by music from the late 1970s and early 1980s and that shows with the synths and also with the pure guitar-pop brilliance that was being reborn around that time. This song is essentially a perfect three-minute indiepop song, loaded with melody, misty production and a total lack of pretension. It begs to be played again and again.
