THE FAINT - Wet From Birth (CD 2004) USA Promo MINT New Wave Indie Synth-PopThe pale young men from Omaha, Nebraska known as the Faint have always been more than happy to revive the 1980s, an era when MTV showed actual music videos, for songs full of synthesizer dance beats.
CURSIVE - Happy Hollow (CD 2006) USA Import MINTThe thing is, even though it deals with such a formidable topic, Happy Hollow is still a whole lot of fun. It isn't anger or disillusionment so much that propels the record as it is bright horns and vocal lines with allusions to third-wave ska and even indie electronica.
Richard Swift - Dressed Up for the LetdownRichard Swift threw his dice down a lo-fi Tin Pan Alley on the Novelist/Walking Without Effort, a collection of sepia-toned curios that spanned 2001 to 2004 but sounded like visionary pop acetates from the 1904 World's Fair.£4.32From GermanyFree postage

New listingThe Rural Alberta Advantage - Mended with GoldNowhere is that more apparent than on the one-two punch of "Vulcan, AB" and "Not Love or Death," both of which manage to toss in the kitchen sink and remain afloat. Both songs are epic, yet neither is over three and a half minutes long, which is where RAA have bands like Arcade Fire beat.£12.41From GermanyFree postage
Bright Eyes - People's KeyPassing resemblances aside, The People’s Key is quite different in tone and tenor than Digital Ash, the somewhat tempered corrective to the self-styled major statement I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning. Disregarding the lyrics -- something that is not easy or necessarily optimal with Oberst, who is continuing to whittle away his overwritten excesses -- The People’s Key is Bright Eyes’ poppiest record by some measure, trading anthems with the weight of America on their shoulders for sculptured miniatures.£14.50From GermanyFree postage
The Rural Alberta Advantage - WildOpener "Beacon Hill" sets a blazing pace -- the song chronicles the 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires that prompted the largest fire evacuation in Alberta's history -- with drummer Paul Banwatt sounding punchier than ever, punctuating each of frontman Nils Edenloff's syllables with the might of a carnival strongman knocking the bell off a high striker.£10.76From GermanyFree postage
Now It's Overhead - Now It's OverheadFronted by Andy LeMaster (who has worked with Bright Eyes) and featuring members of Azure Ray, it would seem that Now It's Overhead is full of potential. They draw from a vast array of influences and produce a sound similar to the Cure, My Bloody Valentine, Depeche Mode, and Spiritualized.£13.09From GermanyFree postage
Tokyo Police Club - Elephant Shell"Meet me where your mother lies/We'll dig graves on both her sides," he sings during "Graves," a song loaded with images of "blackened brains" and "fingernails beneath the dirt.". Tokyo Police Club haven't emphasized this side of their personality before, but they've also never had the chance to stretch their legs and inject some variety into their spazzy rock.£11.58From GermanyFree postage
Two Gallants - Two GallantsIt would not be strange that the three albums Two Gallants have released so far were a sole (but splendid) recording subsequently split into three different issues. Apparently, the duo from San Francisco did not want to be swept away by new musical waves, lest they forget to make such good music.£9.88From GermanyFree postage
