    Not the bestest of week’s for me I must admit …

    ADAM WEIKERT – A Constant Repose – Very, very beautiful Adam! A very apt title for musical serenity.
    FROZEN INERTIA – Gabriel’s Farm – Possibly the most random piece of music I’ve ever voted for – ingenuity and diversity pay!
    JOSH SAVAGE – Ghosts – This is really rather lovely – your vibe reminds me of an Irish band, possibly Picture This?
    LEON OF ATHENS – Fire Inside You – Nice shot of warm, glowing pop with a catchy rhythm, shiny brasses and inviting melody! Good production!

    DUTCH CRIMINAL RECORD – Wasted Time – LADS, LADS, LADS! D’ya know what? You’re probably my all time favourite FOTN band! You were one in the first batch of faves I ever reviewed – I loved you then, and I still love you now (in a virtual, musical sense natch). I really love the lyrics on this song – I should play it more often as a kick up the gazebo. Infectious, vibrant, energetic, full of whizz and zoom. Bl88dy brillo pads!

    FROZEN INERTIA – Gabriel’s Farm

    Sunny Belfast was my favourite of the bunch, although not sure if all the song’s references will make sense to those outside “our wee province”. Don’t get me started on the 20MPH speed limit…

    A little surprised more people haven’t picked up on ‘Saintly’. A definite standout for me, even amongst some other very fine tracks. Female acts/artists a bit conspicuous by their absence this week.
