TOW is pleased to say that this little gem is from a forthcoming album, which we can't wait to hear. The band are over in Texas soon playing industry showcase SXSW - good to luck to them there. We love a bit of Swedish pop, and this band have taken their booze-soaked sound to another level with this track.
La La Vasquez - Don't Rush Me
This band are from Brighton and make fuzzed out lo-fi punk rock that pushes all our buttons. Freya, Rachael and Merida make garagey surf rock with markedly feminine overtones. Lovely stuff.

TOW first came across Kerry Andrew as part of vocal ensemble Juice. Now she's spread her wings and created this little gem of a solo project. The EP Hunting Little Songs is out now and you can buy it at her myspace page. Go on, do it - you won't have heard anything like it. Recording in her Bethnal Green ex-council flat, with whistling kettles and traffic noises making an appearance, along with her husband on the occassional guitar. It's really blown our hair back - inventive, creepy, gorgeous.

LA-based one woman music making machine Cameron Mesirow has made wonders with Garageband. It's atmospheric electro stylings with a lovely voice to boot, she's got nothing to lose. Glasser was also included on Rough Trade's Counter Culture compilation for 2009 so she's impressing the right people for sure. Her Apply EP is out now.
