Jacknife Lee new single 2 July
Making Me Money
Following his work with U2, green Day and Snow Patrol here comes Lee's superb chunk of heavy electro styled funk,
'I really love it and it's making me money' a dirty hook and some spooky imagery ... Lee was asked to Press Release the record, and resisted with his view that ''music journalism is not at it's peak, I prefer the blog, upload, download, like, dislike". Out in July, this deserves top ten. XXXXx myspace.com/jacknifelee (Posted 30 Apr 07)

Silversun Pickups
Future Foe Scenarios

new single 7 May
Commonly known as SSPU, Silversun Pickups are a four piece from LA. 'Future Foe Scenarios' is the first NCQ7" (???). Also available digitally it features on debut album 'Carnavas'. Silversun Pickups tour the UK extensively throughout Summer and you can see them at Cardiff Barfly on Saturday 2nd June. XXXX

Marilyn Manson single 21 May
Heart Shaped Glasses
Well what's happened to Mas? Post Dita he seems more than a little mellow ... more commercial even. Certainly easily accessible, hard core Manson fans will probably not like this so much but they'll hear it loads. The first single from new album 'Eat Me Drink Me' (due for release on 4 June) should easily be a top tenner! XXXX

Cute Is What We Aim For new single 21 May
Curse Of Curves
From their debut album 'Same Old Blood Rush' Another slab of pure emo genius from Jeff, Tom, Fred and singer Shaant. A catchy three minute, wordy opus to .. well curves. Cute have played sell out UK dates and should follow label mates Fall Out Boy into the upper echalons of chart fayre, by the end of the year. XXXX

Ross Copperman
All She Wrote
new single 7 May
Roanoke, Virginia (the nearest big city is Washington DC, 170 miles north) has uprooted himself to live in London & gained a Mancunian slant. I'm hearing a strong Liam Gallagher influence on this rather fine
87bpm single. However the cudos around Oasis was music and lifestyle ... how Ross might fare in a punch up with some German tourists remains to be seen, but he couldn't do much worse than unlucky Liam. XXXx rosscopperman.com (Posted 30 Apr 07)
Groove Armada album 7 May
Soundboy Rock

The GA are bang on form judging by this sampler. Single 'Get Down' is accompanied by some funky stomping on 'The Things That We Could Share', 'What's Your Version', 'Song for Mutya' with ... Mutya and 'Paris' featuring Candi Staton, each is a peach. They'll be headlining their own Lovebox festival in July with more dates to be announced. XXXXx

The Fray new single 21 May
Over My Head
A second hit from Top Ten LP ‘How To Save A Life’ follows the title track & 4th best-seller single of the year so far. More than 1 million plays on My Space in one month, 'Over' was Number 1 on i-Tunes for eight weeks. Vid directed by Elliott Lester of Nelly, Jason Mraz fame. Isaac Slade, Joe King, Dave Welsh and Ben Wysocki are poduced by Mike Flynn & Aaron Johnson and this is brilliant. XXXX
