Northern Picture Library - Last September's Farewell Kiss 7"
A strange approach to downtempo indiepop, NPL's title track combines accordion, pitch bending synth and occasional guitar distortion to brew an almost perfect melody. The first time I heard this song I thought they sounded very much like Field Mice only to find out in Wikipedia that some of the members were indeed from that legendary band. The flip-side is not to be missed. Its straight out clean acoustic guitar pop with equally brilliant melody. [GET SAMPLE AUDIO HERE]
