Just Watch: Mono Club – Memory Critical

Mono Club Words: Elena Katrina I have to admit that I haven’t really got the foggiest what is going on in the video for Memory Critical from Mono Club, but what I do know is this is a damn fine tune.

Just Watch: Suzi Wu – Taken Care Of

Suzi Wu Words: Elena Katrina I’ve been a bit obsessed with Suzi Wu since her debut Teenage Witch etched itself into my subconscious and has lived there, creeping me out, for a good few months.

Just Watch: The Big Moon – Pull The Other One

The Big Moon Words: Elena Katrina It goes without saying that The Big Moon’s Pull The Other One is no new tune to us, it is, however, one of my faves.

John Joseph Brill Words: Elena Katrina The sounds of John Joseph Brill are no new noise to me, they’re rather a thing of comfort,  despite,  more often than not, the lyrical content is less comforting.

Bloxx Words: Elena Katrina I admit, I never thought that I would fall in love with a song named after a household item such as Curtains, but Bloxx have done it. First listen I was in, fully in.
