  12. Started out thinking I would vote according to uniqueness and originality but thn got suckered by some top tunes, lush jazz chords, sassy vocals and smooth Hip Hop. Still, looking at the votes cast so far, it looks like I’m in a minority as usual! This five looks and sounds pretty good to me anyway. :)

    A really strong week, as the first after the long break always is, lots of good tracks didn’t make it to the LP. Me For Queen and Jaayns wer my crystals, i hope for the lyrics to be read below “Jessica”, very touching vocals. As were those of “Gone”, of which I liked the mood evoked and it’s complexity.

    Welcome back everyone – hope you had a great summer? We listened to a phenomenal 215 tunes in this week’s inbox, which you can hear at: https://soundcloud.com/freshnet/sets/inbox252 Sheer numbers made it hard for the moderation team to collectively arrive at just 25 for this week’s very strong Listening Post. But although some fine material inevitably got left out, it will still get considered for my BBC Introducing Mixtape in a fortnight’s time.

    My top five from this shortlist:

    FOGGY CITY ORPHAN – Fake News Blues
    HOLLAND SOUND – Demons
    JIM PEARSON – Keeping Up Appearances
    VIVIENNE CHI – Junk
    WOODEN ARMS – Lost In Your Own Home

    Also enjoyed the tunes by VOS (or V?S as we must learn to call them), FIRST TIGER, POLO, MATT STOCKL, and EMMA MILLER

  29. JIMENA FAMA – Mundo Bizarro
    LYNDA – Under The Pines
    POLO – Zeitgeist
    WOODEN ARMS – Lost In Your Own Home

  31. Great stuff. Hard to choose, but here are the five that the imaginary A&R person in my head would sign.

    CALLUM PITT – Rabbits Beautiful guitar figure running through this
    CAT LUNDY – Triggerman. Could be from any of the past six decades and would sit brilliantly in any one of them.
    GOOD GIRL AND THE BAD TIMES – We Go This Way Minimalist catchy verse gives way to a great chorus, with some interesting chord progressions (slightly scandinavian
    JIMENA FAMA – Mundo Bizarro Hypnotic groove, with enough going on to keep you listening.
    VIVIENNE CHI – Junk Whopper of a chorus in this great slice of alt-pop.

  32. Really enjoyed listening to all the music – some really adventurous writing and production. Cat Lundy’s “Triggerman” is outstanding.
