CD Review: Manifesto - Approaching The Traps
The CD kicks off with the track "Human Rights" which to be honest is not a very impressive track. The drums are relatively lazy with the fills being out of time, the bass sometimes lags behind the guitar and vocals in the track.

CD Review: Serena-Maneesh - s/t
Serena-Maneesh provide the latest update in the Scandinavian invasion of British-branded indie. However, unlike fellow countrymen the Knife and Love Is All, Serena-Maneesh are far less experimental and sound far more familiar to British ears.

Very rough and raw sounding (we even get a little laugh left in the vocal track) this a Dylan-esque little ditty that's verses are stronger than it's chorus.

CD Review: Black Noise Choir - Cadence
Alternative. Alternative is a term used so often today that it begins to lose all meaning, but when I came across this track it was like it had become crystal, because that's exactly what this Leeds 6-piece are.  It becomes clear that this isn't a band that just get together, knock out a few riffs and 'slap' a vocal on top.

This is good strong stuff and you don't have to fear its somberness, or shy away from having the whole lot at once: there's enough grace, sinew and primeval mass here to deserve a chance of being the main thing in your brain for a half an hour, even if the opening title track looms out of the silence to establish a portentous presence, and having done so, rather slips away in a slow heartbeat rhythm and female vocal.
