The 2015 Indietracks compilation contains 49 songs, with, as far as I can tell, seven of the acts having previously featured on TVV in one form or another – The Catenary Wires, Cinerama, Darling Buds, Euros Childs, Laetitia Sadier, Pete Astor, and The Wave Pictures
I’m going to offer up two tracks today, on the basis that the first of them is a cover version:-
mp3: Cristina Quesada – Just Like Honey
From all music:-
Hailing from Madrid but well-versed in a number of different languages, soft-spoken indie pop singer Cristina Quesada harks back to the gentle world of vintage Europop.
Taking up the guitar at age 13, she learned to play her favorite songs, working in theatre troupes and eventually joining the cast of a children’s television program in the Canary Islands. A couple of years later, she discovered the ukulele, which became her primary instrument and led to the recording of her first 7″ single for Spanish indie pop label Elefant Records in 2013. Working with a number of collaborators in and out of the Elefant stable, Quesada began recording her debut LP in 2014. A mix of originals and unusual covers sung in Spanish, English, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and even Japanese, You Are the One was released in early 2015.
mp3: Rodney Cromwell – Barry Was An Arms Dealer
Adapted from an official website:-
From Catford in South London, Rodney Cromwell is the solo electronic project of Adam Cresswell, founding member of indie-folktronica act Saloon and one half of acclaimed electronic two-piece Arthur & Martha.
His 2015 debut album ‘Age of Anxiety’ combined danceable rhythms with melodic bass lines, the chimes of toy instruments, and the bleeps and whistles of retro synths. It explored themes such as paranoia, despair, love, loss and depression while retaining an upbeat pop sensibility, and was featured by among others NME, Electronic Sound, Huffington Post, Louder Than War, BBC 6 Music and RNE3 in Spain for whom he recorded a live session. A follow-up EP ‘Rodney’s English Disco’ was released in 2018 that took his analogue synth sound in an often bleaker new direction.
See…..Indietracks wasn’t just twee-pop and guitars.
