Ladytron - Sugar
Ladytron were one of those bands that got lumped somewhat unfairly
in to the whole electroclash movement several years ago and got littered
with the whole style over substance tag.
This new single still has the poppyness present but this time it's
slightly more harder edged and darker than previous outings.
Millionaire - We don't live here anymore
After listening to this, It's no surprise to find out
that this little known Belgium band have previously toured with Queens
of the Stone Age, as they do share many parallel's.
There blend of bass heavy stoner rock is similar to "song's for
the deaf" era QOTSA, both share rhythmic guitar riffs, soothed
out vocal's and pounding drums.
We Are Scientists - Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt
We Are Scientists were one of the muchly tipped hits
of this years SXSW festival.
The A side of this single is an infectious, catchy and slightly angular
indie dance floor filler. If I was going to compare it to anyone it
would have to be Hot Hot Heat or a less English version of The Rake's.
B-side 'mucho mas' is slower paced and is even slightly post-rock
sounding, saying that it also reminds of Interpol.
