We'll keep this short this week, which comes as some relief after last week's sprawling list. The still undervalued Battle go epic on Children and Norwegian Velvets-via-MBV in goth's clothing Serena-Maneesh release Drain Cosmetics on, apparently, PlayLouderecordings.
Slim pickings here too, although for housekeeping purposes we should mention Final Fantasy's He Poos Clouds got moved back a week at short notice to tomorrow. Elsewhere the Delgados bring the shutters down in as good a way as you're going to get, with The Complete BBC Sessions, adding 17 tracks to 2000's perfunctory collection including all the covers and rearrangements that made their Peel sets dates for the diary. Joan As Police Woman is actually technically a three piece but Real Life is all about Joan Wasser's voice and the sweeping arrangements she's surrounded it with. And that's it.
