Whimsical power pop powerhouse, movie soundtrack scribe and frontman of gleeful indie pop posse Fountains of Wayne, who play the Horseshoe tonight (Thursday, September 18)
The sounds Living In America
"A great batch of pop songs with a vaguely retro/new wave vibe. They're all instantly memorable and really fun."
spoon Kill The Moonlight
"Brilliant. My favourite thing is how they do so much with so little. It's totally minimalist, but the songs feel complete."
New order Get Ready
"Other bands that seemed cool during the same period sound dated now, but New Order's music doesn't. This sounds current and really vital, not at all nostalgic. Plus, they pioneered that cool lead bass line thing."
