Allo Darlin'/This Many Boyfriends/Of Mice And Mental Arithmetic/King And The Olive Fields
Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, SW9 6LH, 7.30pm, FREE admission, map here
Stop the clock! "Henry Rollins Don't Dance" was the indiepop single of the year, if you ask us, and to celebrate the fact we've asked Elizabeth Darlin' and company to headline our final show of the year. Expect giddy, infectious indie pop that sounds like Jens Lekman in a spin with Camera Obscura.
This Many Boyfriends
A five piece from Leeds, This Many Boyfriends play gloriously scrappy indiepop that sounds like Ballboy, Hefner and Pavement five rounds into the drinking contest to end all drinking contests. They have a song called "I Don't Like You Cause You Don't Like The Pastels", which seems like a good enough reason to book them as any.
Of Mice And Mental Arithmetic
Formed from the ashes of The Deirdres and Lardpony, the OMAMA experience provides a melting pot of philosophical chanting, wistful boy/girl vocals, dreamy guitars, crunchy guitars and sci-fi keyboards. If you loved the uncoordinated joy of The Deirdres, then there's a fair chance you'll fall head over heels for these too.
King And The Olive Fields
Philip Serfaty and a rotating cast of friends play swoonsome, literate indie pop festooned with ukuleles, cellos, banjos and the like. For fans of early Magnetic Fields, The Wave Pictures and Herman Dune.
