No doubt you're still working your way through last week's list, which is why for this selection of notable new names we're going to keep things briefer.
Teenage Cool Kids: 90s quasi-slacker indie rock is coming back in a big way, and this Denton, Texas outfit are all over Slanted And Enchanted/Built To Spill collapsing alt-pop. You'll also hear the impassioned assault of The Thermals, the jagged sykyscraping urgency of Meneguar and Johnny Foreigner, and the lo-fi noise over technique of the garage.
Standard Fare: latest graduates of Thee Sheffield Phonographic Corporation, their press release describes them as "somewhere between the Lemonheads and Los Campesinos". In fact like many an SPC band they belie their DIY qualities through the power of simple melodies, guileless vocals, scab picking lyrics and a great deal of joie de vivre.
Motel Motel: on the bill for End Of The Road Festival and fresh from seven SXSW parties, so get some money down on a wider impact before much longer. The Brooklynites know their way round the Flying Burrito Brothers and the like but echo inside that the likes of Wilco, first album Gomez, Modest Mouse and a far less conceited Ryan Adams.
Frankie & The Heartstrings: Sunderland natives and recent Futureheads and The Week That Was support, they may be the first band for whom The Yummy Fur can be invoked as a noticeable influence. Spindly, awkward, Fall-ish anti-pop that constantly threatens to fall completely apart while never doing so.
Sicknote: We... just don't know. Sometimes you almost have to just post the nutsoid shouting-over-beats, generally as subtle as Alan Pardew being asked to comment on the Josef Fritzl case, and scarper before anyone asks you to expand on it.
