We Are Scientists’ first album was electrifying powerpop, indie in the extreme and fun as hell. They’re subsequent releases…Haven’t been. Their newest gets closer to what made them great in the first place, with a live sound, catchy hooks, and straightforward rock and roll.

Here’s the single.


LOLA AND THE KICKSTARTS-The Handmade Tale of Lola King and the Kickstarts

If you long for a smarter Lily Allen or a younger Chrissie Hynde, this might just be for you.

Lola and the Kickstarts: Crisp lyrics and vocals that seem as matter-of-fact as the great pop bands of the late 1980s/early 1990s (think The Smiths, Squeeze, etc.), tight riffs and hooks, there’s nothing here not to like. Especially with lines like “I left my heart in England, that’s where I found love, but that’s where I lost it too”–but I swear she said “whore” not “heart.”

Recommended cuts: This is Not a Love Song, The Great Divide, I Left My Heart in England.
