Five Years That's All We Got

From: London, England

Feldspar

Five Years, the new single from Feldspar isn't, as I was initially hoping, a cover of the Bowie song. After the first hearing I'm glad that it's not a cover, as good as a Feldspar cover of Bowie would be, because a new Feldspar song is like a precious jewel to be loved and treasured. 

There's a yearning, a sadness, an emotional honesty and, with the line "If I can't have you no-one can", a sinister edge to Five Years that tugs at the heartstrings like a virtuoso violinist. It's another in a lengthening line of emotionally charged, heartfelt and intensely expressive songs in the London five piece's repertoire that makes them one of my favourite bands around today. 

Quite why Feldspar aren't multi platinum selling mega stars is a mystery that would baffle the mind of Stephen Hawkins.

A Kut Above

The Kut
From: London, England

I Don't Need Therapy, the new single from feisty London rockers The Kut (first featured on the blog way back in 2011, Video Killed The Radio Star 4th September 2011), has more attitude than a Courtney Love court appearance. It's punky yet poppy, aggressive yet sweet, it's a velvet glove in an iron fist. 

With one deep dark kohled eye on grunge and the other firmly set on Brit pop The Kut straddle the Atlantic like a giant gymnast. They sound like the result of a top secret experiment to create the perfect rock group by mixing the DNA of Hole and shoegaze pioneers Lush in a musical laboratory. 

The Kut are a cut above the rest.
