The Quick and the Dead: Heartbreak 365
The Quick and the Dead: Heartbreak 365 (Cosmic Federation)

Elsewhere always has a warm place in its heart for young band full of energy, ideas (if not always original) and enthusiastic execution. And this Auckland three-piece has all those.

While I might hear 60s garageband pop-rock, the Clash and Chris Knox -- and a worrying lurch into prog-psychedelia on She Knows -- that doesn't change the fact that this has been taking a hammering once I got past those references.

Pop-rock with wild hormones and a joyful noise is always to be celebrated.
