The Shins – Wincing the Night Away – Have to say that the shins are the fastest out of the blocks this week.  Check out Australia.  http://www.myspace.com/theshins

David Bowie – Let’s dance –   Video clip is classic and is actually shot in a real outback Australian pub.  Quite weird to see a bunch of dodgy old mates perched at the bar and David rocking out right next to them as though he’s really somewhere else. 

Bloc Party –  A weekend in the city  –  Pretty fukn ordinary on first listen.  Maybe it’s a a grower….  http://www.myspace.com/blocparty

Brightblack Morning Light – Great chill out late night or Sunday afternoon stuff.  http://www.myspace.com/brightblackmorninglight

The Long Blondes – Someone to drive you home – It’s Franz Ferdinand with a hot front woman with cool lyrics. Played a cracker gig at the soon to be gone Astoria on Tuesday night no thanks to the keyboard player/backup guitarist who did absolutely nothing all night.  Shame about fields who were shit.  http://www.myspace.com/thelongblondes

 The Electric Cinema – Reminiscent of Flaming Lips/Polyphonic Spree/Arcade Fire/Sleepy Jackson.   Good, not great, but worth a go.  Heated Exchange and Cut Down.  http://www.myspace.com/electriccinema

 My Luminaries – Jumping the Great White.  Good track. Don’t know about their other stuff.  http://www.myspace.com/myluminaries
