From Eat Your Own Ears site:

Midwestern band TILLY AND THE WALL consists of two dressed-down boys, two glamorous girls and one frenzied hoofer, the tutu-wearing Julie Williams with pockets full of melodies sprang out of Nowheresville, USA, with a penchant for classic 60s pop, boy/girl harmonies and American folk records. They create jagged, elegant songs, and rejoice in tales of friendship, broken hearts, and youthful dreams and frustrations. Their sound is distinctive and classic at the same time. If you're looking for reference points somewhere between Rilo Kiley, Belle And Sebastian and Bright Eyes would be a good place to start. And the songs are as catchy as anything. Perfectly humable after one listen. And likely to induce involuntary toe tapping. Talking of which - percussion on most tracks is provided by Julie's nimble-toed tap-dances! She's also been known to bang old leather suitcases with drumsticks...

"An optimistic celebration of self-destruction, unspoken longing and adolescent rebellion, it combines the whimsical spirit of the Polyphonic Spree with the melancholy of Kirsty MacColl." The Guardian

East London's SEMIFINALISTS play a live set of raw melodic punky pop post rock, mixing delicate tunes with driving drums and layers of guitars... Imagine all the 80?s pop hit records, melted into one huge blob, which then re-cut and re-constructed by King Crimson and Sonic Youth. With references to The Flaming Lips, The Unicorns, Cindy Lauper and Mercury Rev...

"They fuse the regulation jangle of C-86 with plinky-plonk electronics and boy girl harmonies in a heady mix reminiscent of a junior Animal Collective, The Postal Service's electro emo... to form a saccharine and rather frenzied psychedelic pop..." Time Out

Emerging from the same scene as the Mystery Jets EMMY THE GREAT plays a solo acoustic set of folky pop songs...
