GRUFF RHYS: Honey All Over.If someone told you the Beach Boys had penned this you’d have to believe them. Sunnyside up pop that struts it’s stuff, quite literally.
MAYDAY PARADE: The Silence.The American pop punksters certainly know how to turn in a soaring chorus. This one’s so high, it’s touching the stratosphere.
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE: You Are A Tourist (inset).Riddled with a natural sense of class as it slowly winds its way to ultimate indie glory. One of the best they’ve ever done.
CHAPEL CLUB: Blind.Indie rock that’s got more than a whiff of nostalgia about it, complete with tender vocals full of warmth and shimmering guitars. They’ll make you shudder with anticipation which they then fulfil with consummate ease.
