The Posies have been around forever and fans of the band will be all too familiar with their laid back alt pop sound. Sideways is the new powerful and melodic release from the Washington, USA band who never fail to deliver a tune. An incredibly easy listen, Sideways is comforting guitar pop. The Posies take our Single Of The Week this week. Listen here.
Welcome to a late round up of this (last) week's single releases and we kick things off with Chicago pop punk band Wilmett and their very loud release Alchemy. It starts promisingly but then gets a bit shouty...The Islas are more like it and they have released a proper single in Close complete with a B-side Dancing With Daisy. Close is kind of indie by numbers which doesn’t mean it isn’t any good while Dancing With Daisy showcases the band in a different (better) light; it is a ballad and allows the listener to get into the personality of the Norwich lads...Tom Welsh is back with Dreams Of Yesterdays, complete with a spiffing soul voice, Tom shows emotion here on a well produced simple yet very listenable number...North-West band SHADER bring the radio friendly indie rock n roll with True To Life. It is incredibly catchy and anthemic with a pop punk vibe...Inner Visions is the new one from quirky band Heavy Salad. A throwback to psychedelia from yesteryear, they are a band who as ever are doing things on their own terms. There is some blistering guitar on this...Vistas bring the feel good indie with Comfort, the latest release from their debut album Everything Changes In The End. Comfort is a feel good indie pop tune from a band with a UK headline tour pencilled in for March next year...Remedies is the lovely new one from Premium Leisure and has an indie Nirvana at their most accessible vibe going on...Jody And The Jerms have a great vibe on new single It’s All Up To You. It IS country/Americana with shades of alternative. I love music that is unique and almost creates its own genre like Jody And The Jerms have done on this...KING MALA tells a moving story on If I Try To Find You - with sultry vocals and a sinister and moody chorus...while Imogen Mahdavi has an incredible tone on Some Things Are Best Oversaid. Yes it has a chord sequence that has been to death however this release stands above the crowd..Bloodwork by Feverjaw is this week's hard rock effort and really isn’t our cup of tea; rock by numbers that has been done a million times before...you can’t go wrong with a cover of Running Up That Hill and New York City’s Aerial East deliver in spades. This is extremely beautifully done.
