September Round Up #3

Something Else – Don’t Want It

Jangling guitar pop with post-punk overtones with a bit of pub-rock thrown in too. They have since released their debut album entitled An Entire Album About My Ex-Girlfriend which has been on heavy rotation recently.


Theatre Royal – All Fall Forward/Better Say Goodbye

Powerful guitar driven pop from Rochester, Kent linking the Medway sound and psychedelic pop of the 1960’s.


The Radio Dept – Going Down Swinging

The Radio Dept. continue their record of releasing anti fascist singles before general elections in their home country given the rise of the right wing Sweden Democrats and their worrying performance in the subsequent election itself. ¡No Pasaran!


Idle Youth – Gardens

I came across a release by Idle Youth a few months ago and whilst there was some good things about it I was not ultimately grabbed. Gardens however is a revelation and is possibly the nearest a band from Camden is going to get to go surf (pop) ing – well maybe on the Regents Canal! I love the vocals too especially when the voices combine. Great stuff!
