New indie band's single "Don't Panic" features an infectious sound which, in many respects, in unremarkable.  If that makes sense.  It's like saying something is remarkably unremarkable. 

But that is unfair.

Upon a relisten, and then a further listen, you will realise that there is more to this band than initially meets your, ummm, ears.  It really is a song that will soon be firmly stuck in your head.  The band, from Hertfordshire, are set for success on the UK circuit. 

The band is sure to draw all kinds of comparisons with other UK indie bands, but I'm sure they will end up eventually standing on their own feet.

If you are into your indie rock, and would like to sample something new, then "Don't Panic" is definately worth a listen.

VA – Smoove pres: MO’ RECORD KICKS: Act II


This latest collection from label Record Kicks is easy on the ear.

If it doesn’t have you dreaming of better days in the snap of a second, there is something wrong with you. This record is an aphrodisiac for the modern workplace.

From "The Young Patter" by the Baker Brothers and "Prophets Bound to Christ" by William Joseph Fowler & the Disciples, DJ Smoove mixes up a storm on record Act II. With the types of sounds that would be at home at a funk club in the funkiest of cities in the funkiest of countries, there is no denying that DJ Smoove is, for want of a better description, a cool cat.

A particularly favourite track of this reviewer is "Rags to Riches" by the Liberators, a fresh afro-funk act hailing from Sydney, Australia. The track is so rich with the sounds of Africa, it is a wonder it was not produced in, ummm, Africa.

The Diplomats of Solid Sound have been on my radar for a while, and so have Lack of Afro. So it does not surprise me that the Lack of Afro remix of the Diplomat’s tune "Give Me One More Chance", is an outright classic.

Similarly to a lot of the new releases from the team at label Record Kicks, this is highly recommended!
