6Music picks: Sue Denim & Young Romance

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

Sue Denim is one half of electro indie rockers Robot's In Disguise, with Dee Plume they've garnered something of a cult following. Appearances in The Mighty Boosh have helped them along and, of course, a string of excellent albums - culminating in Happiness v Sadness last year. Sue's solo project is quite different, sparse, whimsical, shot through with melancholy that doesn't quite marry with Sue herself! It's a beautiful solo effort and one that's got us mooning over a cuppa on a Sunday afternoon. You'll have to skip through to 1 hr 30 mins on the BBC listen again link to hear it.

Young Romance - Swollen Hearts, Bitten Tongues

Thanks to Tom Jenkins and his excellent Leg Guitar blog for pointing us in the direction of Paolo and Clare - Young Romance. Clare drums standing up ala Tune-Yards and sings, whilst Paolo plays guitar and joins her on vocal duties. This track is just so infectious, we're loving Clare's high pitched pop-pitch pure vocal over the grungy guitar and drums... Young Romance are unsigned - not for much longer surely?!
