In an attempt to make up for a lack of posts over the weekend, here's what we would've posted if we hadn't been prepping for a smart job interview...onwards!
Manchester's Dutch Uncles (formely Headlines) are currently up there with best young songwriters in the North, but with the rest of the UK seemingly too busy lapping up heavily PR'd token-indie, these boys took themselves off to Germany to record and release their debut album.
The self titled record is now available in the UK, here and here, with a launch party at the Deaf Institute in Manchester scheduled for 16th March.
'Face In' is their best tune, hear it on their MySpace.
Continuing the Manc-indie-theme, The Answering Machine release their corking new single 'Cliffer' this week. Finally looking like they mean business, Cliffer is a belting, forceful attack of guitars, with a top video to boot.
* No Manchester band posts tomorrow, we promise...
