PWR BTTM – Ugly Cherries
A wonderful debut from PWR BTTMUgly Cherries is full of genuinely catchy pop punk anthems that will have you singing along.
Favourite song: ‘House in Virginia’
Astronauts, etc. – Mind Out wandering
“Thawed-out ’70s tones with sentiments of soul and echoes of modern indie guitar rock, Ferraro’s piano and Rhodes provide nearly as much a presence on each track as his own falsetto.” – from their bandcamp. A pretty good description of a really good album, the majority of which was recorded live. Another amazing debut.
Favourite song: ‘Up for Grabs’
