The Bitters - Wooden Glove EP

Captured tracks is, without a doubt, the record label to watch in '09. With a string of solid releases in it's wake (+ plenty of promising ones in the future), one of the label's latest is from Canadian popsters, The Bitters. Plenty of guitar fuzz and fun melodies to bop to. Buy Wooden Glove, (and other CT releases) here.

Real Estate - Atlantic City Expressway [Tour CDR]

Real Estate is a great tropical pop/psychedelic group involving Matt Mondanile of the very similar sounding project, Ducktails. Really great chilled out tropical pop tunes. Real Estate currently have a single out on Underwater Peoples. Look out for upcoming releases on Woodsist, Mexican Summer and Half Machine Records.

The Suncharms - Tranquil Day EP

Tranquil Day is the second EP released from Sheffield shoegazers, The Suncharms. They seemed to just disappear after this second and final official release of theirs, but their music still ranks highly amoungst shoegaze fans. The Ep, once again, consists of fuzzy pop melodies wrapped in sugar-coated melancholy.
