Christian Fitness - Teeth
Second track from Falco's album, for which see details earlier in the week, is less rough-hewn, more hook-heavy, again not a million miles away from Future Of The Left here when they're in a state of contained angst/implied threat rather than going all-out.
Comet Gain - Sad Love And Other Short Stories
Another track from Paperback Ghosts, out 7th July, nods at a lot of the musical touchstones David Feck has mined over the last two decades - Felt, soul, the Go-Betweens, Dexys, kitchen sink unrequitedness in general - delivered in a sun-dappled, almost folk-poppy harmonic cousin to that striped sunlight sound. They've always been romantics, but here it's made more explicit.
Wild Smiles - Never Wanted This
We've spent a day or two trying to work out who this roaring quiet-loud garagey single by the Winchester trio reminds us of, our current favourite being the early singles and demos of revolving door grunge revivalists Dinosaur Pile-Up. This is not a bad thing.
