Ian from How Does It Feel To Be Loved? is DJ-ing too
HEADLIGHTS (Champaign, IL/Polyvinyl Records)
Truly amazing US indie pop-rock trio stopping off to promote their latest album, 'Some Racing, Some Stopping' steeped in a classic pop sensibility reminiscent of the '60s Brill Building song craft, and Phil Spector production. DON'T MISS!
the ambitious trio skip right past wimphood and create a melodic world of deliciously messy guitars, synthesizers, and piano. - Spin
...confident, catchy indie-pop loveliness... NME (8/10)
Headlights offer a shoegazer paradise , strolling through beautiful orchestral movements... - Rocksound (8/10)
...boy-girl vocals sit atop a Spector-sized wall of sound... - Uncut ****
THE POSTCARDS (London)
South London four-piece The Postcards make a welcome return the Windmill. Featuring a new line up that got rave reviews at their first gig earlier in the month, the band promise a fast and fun set - whizzing through short, sharp blasts of bittersweet guitar-pop, only pausing to mop their brow and say hello.
Those longing for, and dare I say missing, your quota of jangling bitter sweet cutely turned pop, may do well to retune your radars for this natty little treat Losing Today
DAVE HOUSE (Kingston)
..has been hiding in the UK indie / punk underground for over a decade. Now with two solo albums, 'Kingston's Current' (2004) & 'See That No One Else Escapes' (2007), he produces some of the best powepoppunk you;re likely to hear on this isle.
a wry eye for a lyric... the tracks I've listened to are all belters... moments of softness, moments of hardcore splendour... a very, very good album indeed - Phill Jupitus, BBC 6 Music
