1. The Horrors: I know, I know; thin hipsters with devilish cheekbones and a thinner talent. But then blow me if second album Primary Colours isn't blooming brilliant. Dave Gedge meets Krautrock meets My Bloody Valentine. With some extra rinky dink piano straight outta the Wigan Casino thrown in on top. Sod melody, let's art rock! And you can download 'Sea Within A Sea' from their site too. (Thanks to Thunk for the tip.)
2. Garfunkel & Oates: So Copybot yesterday sent this round:
