The lead single from Sia's forthcoming 'We Are Born' album, is nothing if not obvious. Imagine a snappy pop song with a brisk, electro backbone and an electro-pop chorus where Sia warbles "clap your hands!" in her distinctive, quivering drawl against the sound of someone doing just that.

CD Review: Big Business - Here Come the Waterworks
You may not have heard of these, but if I say The Melvins to you, well you may still be in the dark. When the fuzzy haired ones toured the UK at the end of last year, they were supported by Big Business, who now make up fifty percent of The Melvins with Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover (yes, there are two drummers).

As Kingsley Amis said about some other very pleasing things, 'I'm clear on why I like them, thanks; but why do I like them so much?' The answer has to be a subtle intensity in Wilful Missing's often fragile-sounding songs written and sung by Sam Kipling, with a range of well-controlled instruments in the hands of guitarist Sam Lawrence and bass player Albert Freeman.
