Cherryfalls – Standing Watching

Cherryfalls new single, Standing Watching, is far more enjoyable than their debut, For All My Sins. With the space-filling atmospherics of Elliott set in a UK indie mould, this could be a sign of something very big to come.

Orca – The Days Are Restless… But The Nights Are Explosive

Orca’s third release, as on the previous two, still borrows heavily from US post-hardcore. However, this is their most confident work to date and the band are starting to carve out their own style and sound.


Buy The Days Are Restless… But the Nights Are Explosive from Amazon

Bye Bye Telephone is the most impressive track on this EP and if Orca head down the road it hints at taking, they could be up their with the big boys very soon.

Ipsofacto – Necklaces On The Branches Of Trees

Ipsofacto are a Welsh alt-rock band. So are a lot of other bands. It’s not that Ipsofacto are bad but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to get excited even remotely about bands that sound like carbon copies of all the others who’ve come before them. It goes like this: quiet bit; loud bit; scream if you feel it necessary; fake an American accent throughout so as to appear more credible. Could someone think of a new idea, please?

Label: Sonrise Records

Release date: 2nd August 2004

Tracklist:

  • The Y Made Me Do It
  • Bring Into Being
  • Probono
  • Mexican Trade

Three Children Of Fortune’s rise began last year when they accidentally entered and won the highly-coveted In The City unsigned band competition in Manchester. This, their debut EP, is the 22nd in the ORGanised singles club – a series that has launched a great number of UK bands into the limelight.

Taking their cues from bands from Chicago – Slint, Hum and Shellac – as well as the likes of Sonic Youth and Pavement, you can be sure that you’ll be seeing a lot more of this band.
