Parallax Jukebox

Ten tunes to cool the embers of Camden Market -

1. She Dares All Things - Panda Riot
Bold, shimmering standout from Chicago shoegazers.

2. Time To Pretend - MGMT
Electro-pop genius from forthcoming Oracular Spectacular.

3. Ex-Guru - David Byrne
Byrne's bright on this Fiery Furnaces cover.

4. Midnight Surprise - Lightspeed Champion
Sprawling epic from surprisingly good debut album Falling Off The Lavender Bridge.

5. Oneitis - StrangeTime
Sly, dry break-up song from their upcoming EP.

6. Men Not Worth Their Weight In Words - Beestung Lips.
Scathing highlight from their Songs To And From The Iron Gut mini-album. We hope it's not about bloggers. Or maybe, we hope it is.

7. Pop Kids Of The World Unite - Horowitz
Re-released on heavy yellow vinyl as AA-side to Tracyanne, this is the Stoke-On-Trent outfits' finest recorded moment to date, a call to arms for the army of twee, recorded, appropriately enough, in a bedroom. Live review to follow shortly.

8. Yes! You Talk Too Fast - Johnny Foreigner
The JoFo MoFos support Los Campesinos! at Birmingham Academy 2 on Wednesday 13th.

9. All My Friends - Land Of Talk
Sleek but straight-taking pop-rock from the Montreal trio's Applause Cheer Boo Hiss album.

10. A Trip Out - British Sea Power
BSP broaden their outlook and expand their sound on new record Do You Like Rock Music?

Where can I find that Fiery Furnaces cover? (Incidentally, there are links to the videos they've made for some of the Widow City songs, including 'Ex-Guru', up on Silent Words.)

So, Los Campesinos! was tonight, eh? Hope you met up with Alison and look forward to reading the review.
