The Courteeners – Not Nineteen Forever 7″
You know that band The Killers? They need to be stopped, their influence spreading like cancer. This band sounds like a cross between The Killers and Snow Patrol, and as a result, I was about to turn this shit off, but the geniuses behind the band/label decided only to post a “sample” of the song on their MySpace. Lucky me!
Cheeky Cheeky and the Nosebleeds – Slow Kids 7″
a1. Slow Kids
a2. Slow Kids SPA Remix
b2. Slow Kids (The Shoes remix)
“Slow Hands” lifts some hooks from that one Libertines song that was any good (“Can’t Stand Me Now”), and so you will be into this if you are a Libertines superfan (ahem). Actually, this song sucks, and so do the Libertines. “Fascinating” is a little better, but I would rather listen to Wire, which this is very reminiscent of. For $10, no way.
