EP Roundup

Klaxons - The Bouncer
Xan Valley EP
The latest British sensation. Feel these guys shout at you over a loud, raucous and breakneck paced track. Mega riff skronkage. "Your name's not down, you're not coming in!!"

Fields - Brittlesticks
7 From The Village EP
Imagine Arcade Fire with the shoegaze button turned up to 11. Add some nice electronics, some indie strum and loads of melody and presto! A great 7 track EP.

The Slits - Number One Enemy
Revenge Of The Killer Slits EP
They're baaaaaaack. Well, at least a couple of 'em. Ari Up and Tessa Pollitt round up former Sex Pistol drummer Paul Cook and former Antperson/guitarist Marco Pirroni and it's 1977 all over again. A stonkin' bit of punk rock.

Dean & Britta - Colours
Words You Used To Say EP
Dean & Britta return with some more gentle indie meanderings. If you know their background - Galaxie 500, Luna and some solo outings - you kow what you're getting. This is a cover of an old Donovan tune.

The Rosewood Thieves - Back Home To Harlem
From The Decker House EP
This is some classic Americana - a bit of Dylan, some Spoon, the influence of the Beatles and Johnny Cash and vintage r'n'b. It's all here on this nice and warm six song set.
