Tieranniesaur is awesome! I heard Sketch last year and was sold. Delightful debut, fun, loud and fresher today's milk, a blustery day and Will Smith combined. Listen to the album and check out Yeh Deadlies, Annie Tierney's other band and just about everything else on the Popical Island collective which she's a part of.

- The Strange Boys (via. Folk Radio UK) Like the likes of Cold War Kids and Spoon, this Austin five piece have uncovered and mastered the power of the rich piano tinkle. When it's done right, it's perfect. "Live Music" is out Oct. 24th on Rough Trade, produced, funnily enough by Jim Eno, drummer with Spoon.

- Welcome back Django Django. WOR was one of my favourite tracks last year. This, is an interesting song. Bring on the album! Come see them on Friday at the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, London.

- S.C.U.M. I'm majorly impressed by this album. Epic acid era vocals, industrial darkness, post-rock attitude, all done with their own original touch. This one's a keeper. U.K touring kicking off, sadly no London dates, bar one supporting Wolf Gang. For you lucky Briton's elsewhere check facebook for dates. Their debut Again Into Eyes is out tomorrow on Mute Records.

- Graham Coxon played a new song on Jools Holland's show the other night. His last album The Spinning Top was a beautiful acoustic affair and my first introduction to his solo work. Following that I become acquainted with his louder material and fell in love. Based on this I'm looking forward to a noisy album from the Blur guitarist.
