Bombay Bicycle Club release their third album A Different Kind Of Fix at the end of this month and have unleashed “Shuffle” as their lead single. At first, the song tiptoes past without causing a stir, despite the best intentions of a pleasantly melodic piano riff. Jack Steadman’s vocals match the catchy tune, but along with the quiet drums and soft bass there is no “wow” factor.

U.S. indie rock band The Airborne Toxic Event is back with their brand new sophomore record All At Once. The group had a big radio hit with the song “Sometime Around Midnight” which helped them establish themselves as one of the top up and coming indie rock groups. In support of their debut record, the band played a mind-boggling 350 concerts until the end of 2009. The fact that they even had any energy to punch out a follow-up this soon after is an accomplishment in itself.
