Is there still a market for indie guitar music in 2009? As the NME pointed out today, recent albums from the likes of the Fratellis, Razorlight and Kaiser Chiefs have bombed (umm, I only got the Kaiser Chiefs one; the lead-off single from the Razorlight one was awful). But I’d like to think that there is still an audience for good indie rock.
Maximo Park are set to return with their third album in may, entitled Quicken the Heart. They have made this track ‘Wraithlike’ available as a free download.
Whilst to some ears this two and a half minute track seems to be too weird, I like this. quirky, different -but still Maximo Park.
See what you think:

Meanwhile, Doves’ fourth album Kingdom Of Rust is out next month. As well as ‘Jetstream’ from the album which has been doing the rounds for about six weeks now, there is also a remix of the title track doing the rounds as well.
