Which compass point does this toddler lead you in?

(Yes...we know this is basically Video Games by Lana Del Rey)

There have been a lot of rather predictable melodies here of late. But not this song. And it's all the better for that. It does remind me of Austra - but with a cuter accent. I like it, though by the end I wondered whether it had more to give.

I didn't get Video Games. Different league imo.That particular song is so beautiful and so charged with emotion... but maybe that's what I sensed was lacking in today's offering. And given the similarity between Lana's Get Free and Radiohead's Creep, I dare say she wouldn't be the first one to cast stones anyway. Ha

Hmm, no links work. Have a listen on Spotify. It's the same tune :-)

I certainly see the similarity with Video Games. I can't say either excites me. I'm in a guitars-only mood today.

What do you think of this Coolnoise? Listening to it now as I work, trying to decide whether to go see them later. Energy levels permitting. Natraxas. Greek retro psyche band. Loads of guitars - if a tad noodly.

I like the general meme of revival of Psychedelic Rock. It sounds decent although a bit lacking in the guitar department. It could make for a very good night. You know, all the long hairs with their greatcoats, the surrounding smog of cigarettes and cannabis, the crazy dancing.

Sorry, dropped back into the Seventies there. Might still be decent though even in this sanitised and restricted age.

Cheers. Will feed back if I do make it. Your description was of Jeff Dexter's 70s Sunday Implosion at the Roundhouse. ;-)

I've an evening of acoustic roots and money losing ahead of me tonight ;-)

I liked the wriggle in the rhythm and the use of electronic sounds for percussion rather than pretending there was a drummer.

This is a lovely rich voice in this register. Really lovely.

Like most electro pop it does recycle ideas too quickly rather than introducing subtle variation. I do think this is very promising.
