Islands - Arm’s Way

For all the snippets of brilliance you'll find in this record, it struggles to leave much of a lasting impression.

Lykke Li - Little Bit EP

She's more in common with the earthy <b>Camille</b> or <b>Feist</b> than anyone from her motherland.

MGMT - Oracular Spectacular

One of the best and most unexpectedly accomplished records Brooklyn has produced in ages.

!!! (Chk Chk Chk) - Myth Takes

<b>'Myth Takes'</b> shuffles and twists like the coolest dad at the coolest wedding in the world, keeping their frenetic, funky boom-bass but slicing off any unnecessary bits.

It looked like it was never going to happen. A raft of underperforming singles, serial comparisons to That Other Band From Leeds, line-up problems, music industry mis-steps, and <i>finally</i> <b>Duels</b>' album manages to wriggle free into the world.

They proudly proclaim <i>'Down with miserable retroism, hurray for the beautiful machine'</i>, which made <b>DIY</b> want to pump our fist in the air and shout <i>'YEAHHH!'</i> really loudly in people's faces.

Now it's time for another hot Canadian band, this time from Vancouver: the fantastic punk-rockin' dance-pop girl/boy troupe <b>You Say Party! We Say Die!</b>.

The Spinto Band
