OK, miles behind with the posts again - several artists to listen up on, review to write on the One EskimO album, need to listen to the Florence & the Machine album properly and make appropriate comments, festival season, and more. Plus, keep watching this space for an hopeful exclusive competition and preview on a soul talent that's really coming onto the scene at the minute.

However, to catch-up, some things that have dropped into my inbox lately, with thoughts in 10 words or less. See how it goes...

Flashguns - I don't not love you - Somewhere between Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire. Great Litotes.

Thecocknbullkid - Clean apart - Electronica, pop, and an insect-like noise that only dogs can hear. Catchy though. [Note - Bugger the 10 words or less then]

Girls - Hellhole ratrace - San-Franciscan Glasvegas maybe? Lazy summer day.

[Bit extra on Girls - Solitude is the B-side on the 10" limited album, and is much more acoustic and still nicely summer days. Quite retro with the mouth organ and the like. I'll try to do a comprehensive unsung in due course, but if I fail it's worth mention that the album is out on 21st Sept followed by a UK tour at:

21st  London Lexington
9th Nottingham Bodega Social Club
10th Liverpool Korova 
11th Manchester Night & Day 
13th Glasgow Captain's Rest 
14th Edinburgh Sneaky Pete's
15th Leeds Brudenell Social Club
16th Bristol The Cooler 
17th Birmingham Academy 3 
19th Brighton The Albert
20th London Hoxton Bar & Kitchen
21st Tunbridge Wells Forum
23rd Cardiff SWN Festival

Casio Kids - Finn Bikkjen! - Eh? Bouncy Hot-Chip esque accompaniment, but what lyrics?

Medi and the Medicine - Excuse my French - Mentioned the band before, funky, memorable, distinct.
