Weekly: Listing ...
Here goes ...
The Doers ... they're from Canada. Voncouver, to be precise.
The Kites ...
"Follow me now into the forest of noise where Kites are busy playing their latest offering the nine songs in twenty minutes 3" CDEP "Superior Moon", bouncing sounds around the atmosphere, and sounding like an old episode of Dr Who gone mad. Played on home-made instruments, this is the work of comic artist Christopher Forgues, who creates music with intensity and depth, working with frequency rather than notes, and occasionally annihilating everything in great swathes of white noise that are paranoid in their effect, especially when they arrive unexpectedly in the headphones causing the reviewer to jump several feet in the air and rush for the volume knob. Investigate with caution, but do investigate."

Hey -- the Maccabees are also from the UK!
Shy Child ... this, too, is way awesome.
And lastly, Vincent Vincent and the Villains. I know I've said it before, but keep your eyes on this band, as well!
Well -- that was quite a list, eh? I promise to write more next time. I need to post more so that this sort of listing doesn't happen again. Or be more exclusive (but that's hard since I like everyone, and I'm not, contrary to what you all think, an increidbly "popular" blogger myself).
