Crikey, Mikey, it's some new bands

Hello there. We have sourced some "new" bands on the internet for you. It might be great, or it might rubbish. It's hard to tell at this early stage, so don't get your hopes up. But have a listen and tell us what you think. All comments appreciated.

Spooky synth duo with a "mysterious" MySpace page full of scans from vintage Italian magazines. But - oh no, Pitchfork readers!! - they're on a "major label".

It Hurts - Wonderful Life

Phoenix are a French band who sprang to life as a backing band for Air. They've been around for ages, playing to the cool kids in empty clubs around Europe. But they're new to us and they might be new to you, too.

The band's fourth album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, is a top 20 SMASH in Germany. But don't let that put you off.

Phoenix - Lisztomania

Imagine that MGMT had been transgenically mutated with mid-90s trappist monk enthusiasts Enigma, and you have imagined Big Pink. They are from London, they can't spell Dominos, and one of them is friends with Lily Allen.

Again, don't let that put you off.

Big Pink - Dominos

Alright, we've mentioned Marina before, but now we've seen her in concert and fallen properly in love. Mainly because she dances like Kate Bush. But also because of her top-rank melodies and perfect teeth.

Marina and the Diamonds - Obsessions

Tomorrow: Normal service will be resumed with a silly pop video by Pixie Lott.
