Lou Barlow

Holding Back the Year, EP, Domino

Singer/songwriter with guitar is what this is about. It has thoughtful lyrics and delivery and a little sadness along the way... which might make you say "oh no!! not another sad shoe-gazing pseudo!". No, no, this is better than that, but you will need to be a fan of this genre even if some of the songs are peppered up a little. (thunderfinger)

Subways, Rock 'n Roll Queen

single, Infectious

Yet another single without an album -- cheap promo is annoying folks.

Straight ahead *gasp* rock and roll (maybe you guessed from the title) with zingalong guitar, four to the floor, and snarling vocals. It's fun and I wouldn't imagine it's meant to be the least bit serious. In fact it would be a great track to send along to a super-stiff girl (that's the rude boy thing I think). (Dr Boots)

The Tears, Lovers, single, independiente

It's summertime and we have this ode to falling in love out on June 27. It's a nice pop tune which has "radio time" written all over it and which will have some couples happily cooing it together in the softness of the early hours. (Mangleworthy)
