1 - ACCORDING TO WHAT - A TIME YOU FELT INSECURE AROUND ALL YOUR FRIENDS - (CD) 
JIGSAW


Ooh, this one's tricky to describe! Out of the gate, they remind me a lot of Kiddo, but the more I listen to the record, the more I think fondly of forgotten bands from indie rock's past like Humidifier, Dunebuggy and Moped (and if I wanted to go back even further, I'd also add the Embarrassment). Anyways, the band hail from Madison, WI, and typically exist as a four-piece, though this album was primarily recorded by the band's leader, Luis Perez, and drummer, Etan Heller (with plentiful vocal help from non-member, Mary Begley). Following a digital EP released on their Bandcamp last year, this is their first official release, and it indeed shows great promise! I'd love to catch this band live someday. You know, in the after...

2 - ALL ASHORE! - STAYING AFLOAT - (CD) 
JIGSAW


Ah, they just don't make playful twee-pop like this anymore. Well, it's not totally extinct yet (thanks, Tullycraft!), but gone are the delightful days of Fat Tulips, Talulah Gosh, the Haywains, etc... not to forget comparable North American bands, like Cub and Bunnygrunt (before they both abandoned indiepop for powerpop, of course!). Enter All Ashore! (with the exclamation mark a part of the band's name, naturally) - this group of not-so-youngsters hail from the middle of England and contain members of the Parallelograms & Velodrome 2000. And they are determined to put twee-pop back in the charts! Well, maybe not the charts, but at least on popkids' playlists, what with their extremely fun songs about indiepop and its heyday...

3 - HANEMOON - LAST THING I HEARED - (CD) 
JIGSAW


Having been fully impressed by this German band's first record (also on Jigsaw) - not to mention the fact that the debut album from Hans' earlier band, Seaside Stars, stands as one of the best janglepop albums of this century! - it was pretty much a no-brainer that I'd be involved in their follow-up. Once again, Hanemoon have served up a dozen perfect midtempo jangly guitarpop hits in the style of later Teenage Fanclub, Dropkick or Cosmic Rough Riders, with the utmost attention given to melody and harmony. I've always found Hans Forster to be one of the better powerpop songwriters around today, and this album only provides more proof!

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Way We Came 02. All Attention On The Wildfire 03. It's All About You 04. Under Canvas 05. The Land Remains 06. Not My Fault 07. Cuddle Up 08. The Ancient Times 09. My Caravan 10. Mindless Princess 11. Anything Is Something Else 12. My God

8 - NOBLE, HUGH J. - THE BEACH BOY - (CD) 
JIGSAW


I've been following Hugh and his music off and on for the last decade and a half, starting with the cd-rs he released on his own Actionpop! Records (which also had other fine artists on its "roster"), and even featured a few of his songs as a "Demo of the Week" on that ancient relic o' mine, IndiePages. And of course, he's no stranger to Jigsaw, as evidenced by the debut album from his current band, Slum Summer, in early 2009. This album, however, is a return to his solo roots, courtesy of the forced isolation the world is experiencing. Sometimes minimal and acoustic, other times with drum & bass accompaniment, this is a rich assortment of songs about places and relationships. Were it not for Hugh's distinctive voice, I could've been tricked into thinking this was a Joe Pernice or Darren Hayman solo album, or maybe even something from the Lucksmiths' softer side. A lovely album for such dark times...

TRACKLISTING: 01. Hickory, Pa 02. A Summer In Elsinore 03. Appleton Drive 04. Questions Of Summer 05. A Letter From Louise 06. Grant's Pass 07. Wild & Slow 08. Thomson's Gazelle 09. Invisible Flames 10. Shadow Stevens 11. Claire & Solange 12. Trondheim 13. Debonair 14. The Beach Boy
