Mr Nostalgia by Spare Planet

Ollie Russian

Nice guitar sound, takes a long time for the vocal to kick in for me but really nice when it does, lovely voice and tone. Nice Bv's too. it's a nice song but I wanted a little bit more from it, it builds nicely but doesn't hit me with a big chorus and needs to do something else for the second verse to lift it.

I like this! Got an old school dirty garage rock vibe to it, it's dirty, gravel voiced, sludgy brilliance. Love the Bv's, great hook and the main vocal is really strong! Fantastic guitar playing too.
Could work for Radio 1 or 6music here in the UK.
Video is a bit dark, would like to be able to see the band properly to get a better feel for who they are.

I Want To Know by Robot Garden

Hate the video, find it pretty cheesy and can't tell if its ironic or not. Vocally I find the track pretty interesting, the chorus is pretty string too, got a 90's college rock thing going on which I like. I think it could have some scope at BBC 6music over here in the UK, its definitely got a good radio feel to it!
I think if I had heard it without the video I'd probably like it more, sorry!
