The Yearning has gone all ABBA on us as the new single Only When I’m Dancing demonstrates. The flip side Moonlight Fantasy errs on the side of disco.

Nice…. Facebook Continue reading Useless Youth – Youth
Fantasy by Mexican outfit Useless Youth is a joyful romp through the indiepop template both past and present. It’s very catchy and well worth a listen. Buy it digitally from bandcamp. Facebook Continue reading Useless Youth – Fantasy
