• bootchy temple Childish Bazar (LP, £13.95)

    label: Howlin Banana Records

    The second album by this French psychedelic pop group features the same melancholic vibe as its previous record. However, this time there's a more a poppy twist, mainly influenced by the Paisley bands, the Flying Nun Records catalogue and '90s indie Pop. As a result, 'Childish Bazar' showcases much more coherence and mastery, in writing, production and arrangements, using 12-string guitars and keyboards to enrich the superbly written pop songs.
