And seeing as it's Hallowe'en....

Counter force

Straight outta Northern Ireland, by way of Simon Raymonde's increasingly relevant Bella Union label, it's Cashier no. 9. Very much liking this.

Living Colour

We've had the Colourfield, we've had Field Music, so it was only a matter of time before Colourmusic turned up. Luckily, they're pretty damn good, so we're not going to resent their unimaginative band name. This is Tog, which I believe may be the current single, but it's so damn hard to tell these days.  Incidentally, that looks like a hell of a party.

With Friends Like These...

Brooklyn's hottest combo, apparently. I'm liking this very much, and now that ESG seem to be on another hiatus, this will have to suffice if you're looking for a funky percussive NYC female outfit .  They're called Friends. Who knew that Rachel, Phoebe and Monica had such great voices?
