Six new works of brilliant music and clever plots!
The Sparks Brothers is director Edgar Wright’s (Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead) long awaited documentary on Ron and Russell Mael’s legendary musical outlet, Sparks, which has released over 25 albums during their career. Generoso reviews the film fresh from its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
There is no shortage of consuming urgency to the sound of this UK trio called simply Shopping.
Double Date With Death are loud and Canadian, and they don’t care if you don’t understand their French howling. They have a double date to get to.
Well into their third decade, G. Love and Special Sauce still sound like they are in no particular hurry to get there.
As you may suspect, Peter Bjorn and John hail from Sweden, and as you may expect, they do Anglophonic indie pop better than the Anglophones.

Lil’ Beethoven (Palm Pictures). Review by Carl F Gauze.
"Melodic with a touch of groove and an anemic, very white approach to the vocals, but still soulful." Gail Worley talks to Johnny Marr, currently of The Healers and formerly of the Smiths, and manages to keep it together. Mostly.
