Review: INTRODUCING: The Shadracks, a three-piece jangle straight out of south eastern England. Harmonic distortion and an upbeat take on swinging, garage rock is how the band are making their name, with the surf rock of "Corinna" a highlight alongside the rolling drums and punky vocals of "Every Inch Of My Mind". With the band still full of a youthful, romantic angst, their debut opus sees the troupe scramble together a playful melee of amped guitars and loose drums to fit that perfect vintage feel.
Review: Straight outta the banks of Merseyside comes She Drew The Gun, a Liverpool psych-pop four-piece spearheaded by the vocals of frontwoman Louisa Roach. It's the group's second album and again it pulls no punches in restraining the band's cultural affliction on modern day society in poetically calling out for the better treatment of the homeless to the dissolvement of capitalism itself. In a way that Ladytron oozed anti-consumerist sentiments in "Seventeen", She Drew The Gun draws upon similar themes in lead track "Resister", only in a way that seems more made for the muddy banks of Glastonbury than the Kraftwerkian jungles of the corporate inner-city.
