    Love that Sax solo on the Aloric track, brings back Springsteen vibes!
    Birdyhop reminds me of Bowie, so that’s an auto like!

    Felt compelled to comment this week as this is one of the best collections I’ve heard from fotn so far.

    Favourites included:

    Moondude – I got Avalon-era Roxy Music vibes from the feel of this track. Great stuff.
    BirdyHop – Emotive and dynamic build up and a strong, climactic end. Someone mentioned shades of Bowie before and I picked up on that from this too.
    Orinoco & The Ganjies – Aside from the superb name (!), I loved the basic and straightforward VU-esque chords, conversational, melodic singing and dynamic percussion.

    BIRDYHOP – Sportsday
    JUMP THE SHARK – Pedestal
    MOONDUDE – Displaced
    ORINOCO & THE GANJIES – Dressing Up My Soul
    PHILIP MORGAN LEWIS – Sinner (Stripdown Mix)

  35. Happy Easter! Here are my top 5 this week:

    ALORIC – It Doesn’t Matter
    CHERRY HEAD, CHERRY HEART – So Much More
    EVERING – Driftwood
    LUSID – Plotting A Murder
    WALKINGSHOE – Paper Moon

    It could have been more, but that’s how it usually is :)

    Thanks as ever to all the artists who share music here.

  36. Lots that made me go “Aah, that’s good,” but plumped in the end for the five below.

    CHERRY HEAD, CHERRY HEART – So Much More-Catchy, quirky pop music, you can’t whack a Blackpool reference in a song.
    CLIMBING TREES – Lost – Like the interaction between the guitar and the piano on this
    MOONDUDE – Displaced -Lovely major 7th guitar work. Cocteaus-ish?
    ROXANNE DE BASTION – Heart of Stone -Excellent, lives up to the good things I’ve heard about Roxanne, may well go down to Leaf on 5th
    WALKINGSHOE – Paper Moon- Lovely song, nicely underproduced, hints of Josh Rouse?

  37. Steve Hoult

    I also liked BIRDYHOP’s tune once it began, but the intro was too long for me. A radio-edit never hurts in the fierce competition for airspace :)
