Filthy guitars smother the debut album from snow patrol, the most american sounding non-american band to be touring the uk. it feels like the dandy warhols pulling back the reigns of the pixies and then has a nutty surprise for you with some seriously cool scratching by the time you get to ‘absolute gravity’. snow patrol are a band who really come into their element live and this is a worthy first album with plenty of diversity and noise. there are plenty of softer moments but it’s the noise we love them for.

Another single from the same stable as Belle & Sebastian. Great songwriting with a hint of lo-fi make this collection of songs a refreshing change from all that major label ‘indie’ stuff. Imagine the blissful mature vocals of the aforementioned Belle and Sebastian mixed with the youthful energy of Urusei Yatsura – FANTASTIC.
