Photobucket Photobucket Girls Names – Buffalo Bar // 4th May 2011 Lots of bands make a lo-fi jangly pop rocket these days but few do it as well as Girls Names and testament to that is a recent EP released on the much-adored and consistently impressive Captured Tracks label.

Photobucket Photobucket Best Coast // 2nd May 2011 Of all the acts coming out of the end of the recent lo-fi 60s glut, Best Coast almost undoubtedly reign supreme.

Photobucket Photobucket Drew McDonell - The Birdcage // 4th May 2011 Bare Feet Records’ regular CABARET nights at the Birdcage are like a hotbed of local talent and, more often than not, unabashed twee.
