Every week TOW is lucky enough to pick two songs for Tom Robinson's brilliant BBC 6 Music show, the spot goes out every Monday morning at around 2:30am
Forest City Lovers - Phodilus and Tyto
Like the Swedes, Canadians consistently provide us with fantastic indie pop groups. Most don't make it to these shores and Forest City Lovers are one such band that I hadn't come across - but it seems they have quite a following back home. From Toronto, the group centres around guitarist, singer and songwriter Kat Burns and they make gorgeous, melodic and often sorrowful pop tunes. The glockenspiel and banjo are fore-fronted so for fans of Sufjan Stevens get listenin'... Carriage is out now on Out Of This Spark records.
Lazy Mary - Hang Nail
There's not much around online about Lazy Mary, this pair from California who make fuzzed out raucous guitar noise.
