Songs of the week

Here are a couple of my favourite songs of the moment.

First up are The Goodtimes.

Catchy Essex indie pop. This four piece has catchy tunes which are rapdily gaining attention from the NME crowd. Personal favourites are Your Game & Same Time Next Week. I'm going to see them tonight at The Notting Hill Art Club so I'll keep you posted on their live show.

Secondly are the awesome Spinnerette.

I may be a little biast here because I am in love with Brody Dalle. You can strongly tell she has been influenced by Blondie in their Parallel Lines era. Although a lot more pop than The Distillers Brody pulls it off well and when she breaks into her signature scream, it still has the same chilling effect that The Distillers songs had back in the day.

Finally is the amazing Manchester Orchestra.

One word to describe this song is epic from their brilliant second album; Mean Everything To Nothing. Heavily influenced by Brand New with strong religious overtones this song has a beautiful build up and front man Andy Hulls voice soars over this song.
