LoveSound Presents: Rocket Girl Records

While deciding which album submission to review next, I had finally narrowed it down to three.  It didn’t hit me until today that these three submissions are all current releases from the UK-based indie record label Rocket Girl!  So, I thought, why not brag on the label a bit, and hit up three reviews at the same time….

While these three releases may not all have the same type of appeal as Rocket Girl’s two previous releases (The Brothers Movement ‘Self-Titled’ and Television Personalities ‘A Memory Is Better Than Nothing’), they all still deserve your undivided attention, at least through one full spin, for one reason or another.  So, here they are, in no particular order:

PETER DALTREY ‘Heroine/Tattoo’
These are two reissued solo albums, now on a double-disc set, from the former lead singer of the 60s cult band Kaleidoscope.  Dark, somber, mellow, and perfect for….certain times!
LoveSound Rating – 6/10

KENNEDY GREEN ‘Self-Titled’
Their debut album…obviously, their still in their mid-teens.  But with one or two listens, you can certainly sense that you’ll be hearing more of these two girls in the future.  Be sure to pay special attention to their first single ‘Cocopah’, a song that will undoubtedly make you smile!
LoveSound Rating – 6/10

PIETER NOOTEN ‘Here Is Why’
If I’m going to be honest, which is what blogging is all about, I’d have to say that this is my personal favorite of these three releases.  Though, it is yet another laid-back record, it’s perfectly sculpted in every way.  Might I add that this may be one of my favorite records I’ve heard this year!  Another interesting tidbit is that Pieter Nooten was part of 4AD’s Sleep With The Fishes, a collaboration with Michael Brooks!
LoveSound Rating 8/10
*NOMINEE FOR LOVESOUND ALBUM OF THE YEAR

And to wrap up this little article…  I highly recommend keeping up with this UK-based label, Rocket Girl.  Seems as though every record they have been putting out leads them closer and closer to becoming a household name (or at least an indie household name!).  Cheers…
