Unknown Mortal Orchestra Press Shot

A Week in Videos...The popularity of Unknown Mortal Orchestra has been on a slow burning rise for some months now. Taken from their forthcoming second album, helpfully entitled II, ‘So Good At Being In Trouble’ sees the band in a particularly catchy mode, a lilting melody lifting the trademark stoner vibe. The video features the actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse (you’ll know him as McLovin’ from the movie Superbad) causing a scene and trying to snatch a hippy from a scene that could well be set in a 1960s era Venice Beach.

In this video, Nina Simone talks about freedom and love, before the film cuts to a grainy performance of her performing ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.’ One of music’s legendary performers, Simone’s rendition of the song showcases her warm and passionate vocal. On the subject of freedom, Simone insists that she couldn’t possibly describe how it feels to be free, just as much as its impossible to describe the feeling of being in love. To hear her perform the track, though, you get just a glimpse of what freedom might feel like.

Veronica Falls - Waiting For Something To Happen Album Review


Glum shoegazers Veronica Falls return this week with their second album 'Waiting For Something To Happen'.  Following on from their 2011 self-titled debut, the band has tweaked and refined their signature boy/girl harmonies and jangling guitar sound to deliver an album specializing exclusively in three-minute bubblegoth pop songs.

Veronica Falls  - Waiting For Something To Happen Album Review

Opener 'Tell Me' is an agreeable and fair indication of what's to come, typified by its C86 guitar and layered backing vocals, but it's track two, 'Teenage', that in years to come will be revered as the quintessential Veronica Falls tune.  It's a catchy tale of young love and misspent youth that has singer Roxanne Clifford carving her boyfriend's name on a cherry tree before giving him a lift home and not caring two hoots that she defaced public property.  

As the album progresses it becomes enjoyable to indulge in a game of 'Spot the influence.' Obvious ones like The Pastels aside, there are more subtle comparisons to find than on the first record. 'Shooting Star' is a grungy little number musically, not unlike Nirvana's 'Heart Shaped Box', and 'If You Still Want Me' has a deliciously melodic chorus bassline that Peter Hook would be proud to have in his collection.  Meanwhile, the general delivery of Ms. Clifford's vocal is more confident than before and reminiscent of female-led '90s guitar bands like Echobelly and Elastica.
