Ghosts - The World is OutsideQuite a few medium-profile releases this week, including Queens of the Stone Age’s new effort, “Era Vulgaris”, “Tally Of The Yes Men” by Goldspot (I can’t stand it, but has some big record company backing, so could be one to watch), Calvin Harris’ “I Created A Disco”, Tiny Dancers’ “Free School Milk” and finally Bon Jovi’s “Lost Highway”. However, the one I’m going to focus on for this week’s “Band of the week” feature is Ghosts, another sort of middle of the road indie pop band from London who have their debut album out on Monday, “The World is Outside”.

Normally I’d just write them off as being another bunch of Keane wannabes, and they may always be destined to have that label. However, they have one song that is simply sublime. Its “Stay The night”, which you may have heard recently on Virgin radio.

Their lyrics are typical teenage simplicity that’s not gonna win them an Ivor Novello, with ‘original’ lyrics such as:

Oh why don’t we take a taxi back to mine,
I’m sure that we’ll find a way to pass the time,

As much as I want to hate this band I just can’t bring myself to, with their catchy songs and simple tunes that just beg to be hummed along to all summer long. Definitely a band to divide opinions, they will have you loving them or hating them pretty quickly! Hardly a band that will earn you a lot of street cred, they could well be one of the slow burners of the year, doing a Snow Patrol on us and slowly wowing festival crowds.

 

Lack of decent albums this week, so instead: Video VJ

The HoosiersThis week there’s a distinct lack of albums I’m interested in coming out, and I have a depressing amount of work to do for uni exams etc, so I’m playing Video DJ (ahh, the joys of youtube!)

I’m aware that there are new albums by the likes of Pigeon Detectives and Mumm-Ra out this week, but I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet, so I’ve got a range of new bands that I like at the moment and put up their singles…

So, after the jump, find a selection of the best indie pop videos I like at the moment… it saves time and yet still looks like I’ve done a full post… classy Phil! We’ve got The Hoosiers, Ghosts, The Holloways, The Twang and Klaxons all with videos, and represent my 5 favourite songs of this week.
