Published on January 23rd, 2014 | Jonny Abrams

This week’s singles threw up so many good ‘uns that we’ve had to do a part 2 – and here it is, featuring Milk & Biscuits, Ninetails, Department M, FaltyDL, Merchandise, Each Other, Kramies, Smith Comma John, Mutado Pintado, YACHT and Kev La Kat…

Milk & Biscuits – “Hairstyles”

We wanted to resist its twee-pop charms but were utterly sold by the first blissfully jazzy trumpet solo.

The male singer sounds like Lee Gorton from Alfie, which in case you’re not sure is a good thing.

Ninetails – “Radiant Hex”

It’s about bloody time somebody slathered mariachi trumpets over a lysergically clacking beat. Judiciously restrained vocals and a spot of glitch about it too. Splendid.

Department M – “Miscellany”

Kinda sounds like Mars Volta and New Order stumbling out of that machine from The Fly. Think Depeche Mode might have been in there too. Satisfyingly weird.

Rocksucker says: Three and a Half Quails out of Five!

FaltyDL – “Danger”

Skittering, clattering beat slips and slides its way through pulsating rave synth and dilates every pupil in an eighty-mile radius.

Rocksucker says: Three and a Half Quails out of Five!

Merchandise – “Begging for Your Life/In the City Light”

Murmurs its way through sounding like a hundred different things within its four minutes, eventually settling on bubbling up into a dizzying frenzy of feedback – a logical solution to the delightfully illogical.

Rocksucker says: Three and a Half Quails!

Each Other – “Send Your Signals”

Divertingly tangential sludgy psych jangle, like Mazes meets Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks.

Kramies – “The Wooden Heart”

Graceful, mysterious, echo-chamber balladry with fire in its belly.

Smith Comma John – “How to Sleep and Never Wake”

A rainbow-spewing bubbleworks of disparate electronic elements forced quite expertly into playing well together.

Mutado Pintado – “The Tick”

Buzzes and stomps in strangely alluring fashion.

YACHT – “Plastic Soul”

Seems as if it’s set to be vacuous hipster-synth fare, then reaches its exquisitely whirring chorus and casts off the doubt like an unwanted item of clothing. Lovely.

Kev La Kat – “Keep It Tropical”

Does good by its title by scattering refreshing steel drum all over it, keeping a groove going with rubbery synth bass.

Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online editions of their qualifications but usually for a substantially higher price than the corporations that specialize in online college degree plans.
