Suede split up yesterday, so here's the first single of theirs that I bought, all the way back in 1996.
Cat Power — Wonderwall
From a John Peel session from a few years back. It's like her version of "Satisfaction" on The Covers Record; stripped down to the bare essentials, beautiful and naked. Plus! Also features the dulcet tones of John Peel at the beginning and the end (i.e. I couldn't be bothered to edit the MP3 down).
Camera Obscura — Knee Deep At The NPL (National Pop League)
From their new album, Underacheivers Please Try Harder. They're a Scottish band with some connection to Belle & Sebastian (not quite sure what that is though), and they sound quite similar, so consider that a warning if you think B&S are twee indie-popsters to be avoided. (If so, be ashamed of yourself!) I seem to have really got into this little alleyway of indie this past year; my favourite album so far is Saturday Looks Good To Me's All Your Summer Songs, which filters the C86 sound through Detroit to lovely effect. This is quite nice as well. Give it a try!
