    Besvärjelsen - When We Fall - punkier blues thing
    Jack Peñate - Murder - finally he's making a comeback, enjoyed the suit
    Beck - Uneventful Days - isn't really exciting or interesting in any way, shape or form
    Young Guv - She’s A Fantasy - slightly poppy, slightly psychedelic, does it have the sound of tambourine or am I hallucinating?
    Jorge Elbrecht - A Mask In The Ash - this one is trippy

    some notes on particular songs:

    La Jungle - Iltapealaidedos - I have heard it earlier, it's alright, pumping with the rhythm
    Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage - Depression! Despair! - like what Beck used to be
    Buzz Kull - Last In The Club - darkwave discotech
    Mumford & Sons - Blind Leading The Blind - good one, but I have a feeling I've heard this one before, the melody is relatively familiar
    Destroyer - Crimson Tide - good to see Canada (just like New Zealand via NZOnAir) funding their musicians
    Hayley Mary - The Piss, The Perfume - I kinda liked it, while @Blondini was disappointed
    Huxlxy - Relax - both trippy and modern
    See Thru Hands - Hot City - there is a market for bedroom lo-fi music...apparently

    The refrain of the Depression! Despair! sounds exactly the same as in those 50s songs, when the contrabass was a mandatory instrument.

    I even wanted to save The Piss, The Perfume for the November's FSC as Australian entry.

    DMA'S - Silver - I am always expecting them to make a breakthrough, yet they never quite deliver
    Mondo Cozmo - Come On - good anthemic approach
    HMLTD - The West Is Dead - this one's here, this one's here
    Alfie Templeman - Don't Go Wasting Time - just cute
    Pulled Apart By Horses - Is This Thing On? - more lo-fi than they used to be
    Lucia & the Best Boys - Good Girls Do Bad Things - not bad either, having those flashbacks

    La Roux - International Woman Of Leisure - opinions were spllit on this one, I was kinda lukewarm about it, went overboard slightly with the glitchy side
    Coldplay - Everyday Life - fairly standard Coldplay sound
    Scabz - Feel Good Summer - enjoyable guitar noises, talking style is not the best in the business
    Ajimal - How Could You Disappear? - this even topped my personal chart like 5 days ago or something
    All We Are - L Is For Lose - came across this song during the week, funky yet too shabby
    Sean Henry - Can U - sweet
    Deerhunter - Timebends - very disappointing
    Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now - not too bad, don't know whether I should compare this to late 1980s Kylie or Moloko's early 2000s
    Coloray - Timeline - we gonna rave but consciously

    It's feels good to know about some new tips or things about discovering music. I like a little classy music.

    Ganser - You Must Be New Here - probably my favourite of the bunch
    Sisteray - All Boys Club - is there certain demand for this kind of act still, which essentially can be traced back all the way to The Fall
    Laulia - 13/7 - also fine one
    Social Animals - Bad Things - nice music to listen to on the radio (if only)
    Jane N' The Jungle - Tonight - low budget attempt to go back-to-basics here

    Grimes - So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth - already at #1 in @Tansike personal chart, will give it another try
    Fever - Jungle Man - as if they're following some kind of indie rock template, but since the vocal is good I like it
    C.Y.M. - Capra - post-punk meets acid house
    Black Beach Baby - This Is The Day - could have easily passed for an early 90s indie chart feature song
    Habibi - Come My Habibi - the name/song's title is a bit misleading
    Jake Bugg - Kiss Like The Sun - meh

    Nada Surf - Something I Should Do - I find it relatively uneventful, yet still featured it in my chart
    Green Buzzard - Clutter & Mess - failed to catch up with that myself, thank you, it's actually enjoyable

    I'd rate the 3 legends in the following order:
    Paul McCartney - In A Hurry - generic but joyful and a little bit psychedelic (& twee) pop
    Who - I Don't Wanna Get Wise
    Ozzy Osbourne - Straight To Hell

    Beck - Die Waiting - I've tried, but still...not even memorable
    Jenna Putnam - Make War - mysterious and old-school

    Diskopunk - Scooter Gang - like listening to Late Of The Pier from 12 years ago
    Bombay Bicycle Club - Everything Else Has Gone Wrong - back in the day this would have been brilliant, now...crickets.
    She - She - self-explanatory
    The Family Rain - Radiator - maybe I have no car, but I gotta have the garage
    Jack Peñate - Loaded Gun - a fairly standard ballad lifted via a ladder which is Jack's voice
    Gengahr - Heavenly Maybe - I feel like they're constantly releasing something
    Tom Lumley & The Brave Liaison - Casual - not sure about the vocal, but I am still taking notes

    WOW - Occhi Di Serpente - I have also taken notes of this song over the week, it's alright, not too dynamic but puts you in a certain mood
    Shopping - Initiative - it's kinda groovy and the bass adds to the pace
    Catholic Action - People Don’t Protest Enough - the twang seems a bit over-the-top
    Tame Impala - Posthumous Forgiveness - slightly disappointing
    Bleakness - The Closing Door - something a bit darker

    Christmas is closer and the list is getting shorter
    I have heard three bearable Christmas songs already: Natalie McCool, Terrorvision, FEET.
    Klaus Blatter - Christmas Techno Dance providied something a little bit different.
    Surfjan Stevens and I don't know how but they found me have also issued their Christmas EPs among the heaps of season stuff (Meg & Dia sounded carcrashingly generic)
