SINGLE REVIEWS : CANCEL THE ASTRONAUTS - FUNNY FOR A GIRL
Not so long ago we featured this Edinburgh-based band in our "Unknown Pleasures"-section, then there was an interview and now there's the new EP. Are we groupies then? Well, if they were nice looking girls I guess it was debatable but as it's only a bunch of Scottish boys I guess we do it for the music. Nah, serious this new EP just reminds us of the fact that this is a band with lots of potential. Somewhere you can say it's The Wedding Present versus Belle & Sebastian as somewhere it's catchy indiedreampoptunes that you can jump to, from time to time there is a nice guitaroutburst (especially on "Standing Still"). I could tell you they're the best band I ever heard but then you should think that I'm working for the NME or that I'm just talking bollocks so let me put it in other words : I heard a lot of unsigned bands (perhaps too many as after all the majority of them is crap) but Cancel The Astronauts would be worth getting my money on, if ever I had some that is. Check 'em out if you're into intelligent jingle-jangle indiepop.
