Can you guess what kind of music Solvor Vermeer makes?
Twinkling and austere Scandi-pop perhaps? Right on the money. Apparently the Norwegian songwriter and her band were trying to create music for "Blocksberg", the place in the forest where the witches live. Think benevolent enchantress rather than the Blair variety and they're not far off. If you like what you hear there's oodles more here.
Solvor Vermeer - 'Pocket Full Of Memories'
Manchester's The Answering Machine make their return with a new album (out early next year) and a UK tour kicking off on October 22nd (dates here). This exclusive mp3 will be their first single back - what do you think of the track?
The Answering Machine - 'Animals'

It's not a download, but Florence has covered Robert Palmer's 'Addicted To Love'. Thoughts?
