• sails A Headful of Stars (CD, £12.95)

    label: rainbow quartz

    London based The Sails deliver sophisticated pop and rock. "I'm Only Bleeding" and "Travel" drip with sitars, yet are grounded with rocking rhythms and guitars. In "Dogs", The Byrds and Hollies meet The La's in Revolver-esque fashion. The album features both jangly and aggressive guitar attacks throughout, evoking Oasis and even Humble Pie, or Spacemen 3 channelling the Beatles.
