Miss Li – Best Of 061122-071122

National, 2007 [rating:8/10] The twelve month period denoted by the title of this compilation (that's how the logical Swedes write the date) was an ultra productive period for Stockholm's Linda Carlsson otherwise known as Miss Li.

Faker – Be the Twilight

Capitol/EMI, 2007 [rating:9/10] There is a litany of bands that make the decision to pack their bags and move to Los Angeles to try and catch a spark of what makes the town such a magnet for the achiever and under-achiever alike. It carries a certain charm and superiority, to tell your friends that "you're

The Scare – Interview (2007)

Craig Smith takes us on a journey from Brisbane to Birmingham with Wade Keighran bass player for punk rockers The Scare.

Taken by Trees – Open Field

Rough Trade, 2007 [rating:7/10] Fill up a glass of red wine, put on Open Field, take a seat down in a comfy chair and enjoy the debut of Taken By Trees, a delicate album that allows Victoria Bergsman's voice to shine. The former lead-singer of the Concretes has created a very individual album with a

Miss Li – Late Night Heartbroken Blues

National, 2006 [rating:8/10] With three albums within a twelve months period and a best of album summarising her first year released, Miss Li may be the most productive artist in Scandinavia today, if not ever. It all began with Late Night Heartbroken Blues, an impressive debut album that sucks you in and one that you

Tegan and Sara – The Con

Vapor/Sire, 2007 [rating:8.5/10] Although always writing separately, the initial blueprints for The Con, saw the twins geographically distanced -- Tegan in Vancouver, Sara in Montreal. Reunited and with demos in hand the pair moved to Portland with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists) at the helm, recording in his basement studio. Tegan

1990s – Interview about 1990s and Yummy Fur (2007)

During the decade that was the 1990s Jackie McKeown fronted the highly influential but commercially ignored Glaswegian act The Yummy Fur, an ensemble that went through as many reshuffles as a blackjack dealer in Vegas. Two years ago he formed the band 1990s a mix of The Rolling Stones, Motown soul and power-pop with Michael

Jacob Golden – Revenge Songs

Echo, 2007 [rating:9/10] Those lucky enough to catch Jacob Golden's live know just how extraordinary he can be armed with only an acoustic guitar and his angelic voice. His self titled debut EP in 2001 bottled some of that magic but his debut long player, Hallelujah World released in 2002, partly obscured his natural gifts

Shout Out Louds – The Naked Truth (2007)

Just call it the comeback. While the Shout Out Loud's debut album Howl Howl Gaff Gaff showed promise few could have predicated the seismic improvement for follow-up Our Ill Wills -- a veritable treasure chest of '80s and '90s influenced alternative pop and rock with strings, layered percussion and crisp production. We sit down with

Lick – A Bitter Taste of Britpop – Interview with Gary Cosby (2007)

Lick were one of Britpop's great forgotten bands. Forming in Camden in 1994 they made a splash with glam anthems, perchant for eyeliner and sexually charged lyrics. But the dream was all over two years later on the cusp of releasing their debut album. We feature an in-depth Q&A with lead singer Gary Cosby and feature the Turbulence album available for download for the first time.

Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

Merge, 2007 [rating:9.5/10] It's almost an established fact that once a band hits album number 4 or 5 they're practically running on empty. Creative juices have all but dried up, different directions are attempted, band friction comes to the fore and as the years go by each new release just isn't a patch on former
