Walls’ verdict: “Awesome Chinese-disco-kraut-cosmic jams.” We think: Pop music for fans of Brian Eno, synths and the Blade Runner soundtrack. Listen to: “Frost Satellite”
Walls’ verdict: “American guy living in London and killing it with his beautiful music.” We think: Glo-fi for those who’d rather it not be made by lonely ‘80s obsessives still living with their parents. Listen to: “Cple Outside Park with Me”
Walls’ verdict: “Trefor’s music is just magic. Listen!” We think: He had us at “Trefor is a one-time member of legendary post-punk band This Heat.” Listen to: “At the End of the Day”
Walls’ verdict: “Border Community’s synth boffin — magical squiggly analogue joy!” We think: His MySpace refers to his music as “living room techno.” We say yes to sofa raves. Listen to: “Whitebox Stereo”
Walls’ verdict: “Chris and Claire from Upset The Rhythm’s new band. London lo-fi heros!” We think: Gooey, gooey lo-fi goodness. Listen to: “W.B. (Ruffs)”
Walls’ verdict: “Throbbing Gristle-approved post industrial dancefloor hypnotism” We think: With Liars also giving their approval, the summer of stern officially starts here. Listen to: “Lying”
