Seafang – Solid Gold

Seafang follow up last years excellent Motorcycle Song single with two more slices of C86 era fuzzy indie pop. Solid Gold harks back to the likes of The Shop Assistants, The Fizzbombs and a lazy era Primitives.

The Debutantes – Adams Apples

The Debutantes self titled cassette was one of the highlights of last year. It has long since sold out but don’t despair as two of the tracks will be released as a 7″ single next month (and you get four of the five in an accompanying digital version). Excellent noise pop. Those over the pond … Continue reading
