Swedish 5-piece The Amazing make some extremely unassuming music that sounds wildly out of step with 2018 and more like the kind of thing you’d hear in that weird hinterland between the end of Brit Pop and the emergence of all those bands who sounded like The Strokes.

The Robin Guthrie remix of Hatchie‘s Sure is one of those things that does exactly what you’d expect / want it to do, that being make an already pretty Cocteau Twins song sound more like the Cocteau Twins.
Beach House are back! Or at least they were a few months ago when they released Lemon Glow – an ‘extremely Beach House song’ that opens with little de-tuned keyboard stab things that sound like they must have been pretty fun to make and then loads of sythny growls and strangled guitar bits. Real good.

About 5 minutes of synth noodles and saxophone this one, so buckle in. I like it anyways.
