6 Music picks: Citi Petts & Hi-Fiction Science

Every week we get to play two tracks for Tom Robinson on his excellent BBC 6 Music Introducing show... you can listen again here

Well this tune just automatically puts a big smile on our dial. Pumping electro pop with a great little vocal riff. This trio from Liverpool are fronted by big mouth Lizzie O'Neill, discovered at a house party dance off (er, can we come next time?) the two boys who produce and provide the stomping backing track knew they were onto something special. Saint Signal release this on the 26th March and no, we can't find much info about this independent label either. Embrace the madness and do a silly hipster head bop to this record... oh, and buy it whydoncha!

Remixes here:

The vinyl junkies indie Fruits de Mer decided to reinvent 'THE definitive rock opera/ concept album' - that's S.F. Sorrow by The Pretty Things - with some great new artists, the album is Sorrow's Children and is out in April. One of those 'great new artists' happens to be a TOW favourite, Hi Fiction Science. Their version of Private Sorrow is just fantastic, staying true to their Bristol roots - there's some trip hop in there and Maria Charles' ethereal psychedelic vocal lifting the track into another time and space.
