Tender Trap
Tender Trap
George Thomas and the Owls

Deeply serious but yet hilarious third album from Tender Trap, whose 60's superficial girl pop influences are underscored with a gritty sense of feminism
Superb free download single from indie pop act Tender Trap, which finds front woman Amelia Fletcher retruning to the punk energy of her earlier bands Talulah Gosh and Heavenly
Versatile indie pop on compilation album from Matinee Records, which has tracks amongst others from Tender Trap, the Lucksmiths and Strawberry Whiplash
Difficult, but ultimately rewarding folk rock on first album from darkly humorous Manchester-based act, George Thomas and the Owls

Franz Ferdinand

Innovative third album from Franz Ferdinand, upon which while they experiment with various genres, shows that that they have lost none of their ability to write superb pop tunes
Finely executed, but totally predictable indie pop on new double A-sided download single from the Lucksmiths
