The first single from the album, "Young Love" featuring Laura Marling, was released on 10 March 2008.
The album originally reached #50 in the UK Albums Chart but was hastily rereleased with an additional cover of Aztec Camera's hit single "Somewhere in My Heart" to coincide with the release of eighties-themed single "Two Doors Down", which peaked at #24 in the UK Singles Chart. This new version of the album peaked at #42 in the charts.
'Young Love', 'Two Doors Down' and 'Half in Love with Elizabeth' were released as singles. All three songs, in addition to 'Flakes' had music videos shot for them. The 7" vinyl EP of 'Half in Love with Elizabeth' features the band performing 'Flakes' with Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine performing vocals, this one of her earliest releases, following the release of her first single Kiss with a Fist by only a few months.

"Decent Days and Nights" and "Hounds of Love" were made available for the Rock Band platform on 9 March 2010. "Decent Days and Nights" also appeared on the Burnout 3 soundtrack. "Meantime" was used in a second season episode of the hit TV series The O.C., and the film, Grandma's Boy.
The album was named the 33rd best record of 2004 by Pitchfork.
Girls And Weather
The Rumble Strips
Girls and Weather is the debut album from the Devon-based band The Rumble Strips. It was released on September 10, 2007 by the Island Records sub-label Fallout Records.
AllMusic reviewer Katherine Fulton said that "happy melodies coupled with bittersweet lyrics are a running theme throughout the album", being quick to note this is a good thing because "it's a formula that works well for the Rumble Strips." She sums up the album by saying it "loses neither steam nor charm throughout; it's an album for adults who want an excuse to behave like kids again." NME reviewer Jamie Fullerton focuses in particular on the frontman, indicating that the "cheesy, into-the-sunset fantasy is just another indication of Waller's total detachment from the current grot-rock set, just as he's detached from the cretins who brand him a Dexy's photocopier."

Up All Night
Up All Night is the debut album by English indie rock band Razorlight, released on 28 June 2004. The album was mainly recorded at Sawmills Studio and mixed at Sphere Studios by John Cornfield.
The album garnered favourable reviews but critics questioned the band's influence-filled musicianship throughout the tracks. Up All Night peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart and spawned six singles: "Rock 'N' Roll Lies", "Rip It Up", "Stumble and Fall", "Golden Touch", "Vice" and "Somewhere Else".
On 4 June 2014, the band, with only lead singer Johnny Borrell remaining from the line-up which recorded the album, played at the Electric Ballroom in Camden to mark Up All Night's 10th anniversary.
Hockey's debut, Mind Chaos, was initially going to be released by Sony Records -- the band even got as far as reworking some of its demos in the studio with producer Jerry Harrison -- but the album's fate was left in limbo when the label dropped the band. Mind Chaos got a new lease on life when Hockey's songs made their way to BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, whose championing of the strutting "Learn to Lose" helped earned the band another major-label deal. It's easy to hear why two big labels were interested in Mind Chaos; Hockey's angular basslines, chugging guitars, and washy keyboards call to mind tried and true, new wave-tinged acts like the Strokes, OK Go, and the Killers. For most of the album, they don't stray far from this style, and considering that they had been around for a while before Mind Chaos's 2009 release, they sound effective, but not especially fresh. Most of the band's character resides in Ben Grubin's raspy vocals, which lie somewhere between a young Rod Stewart and the Strokes' Julian Casablancas, and his surprisingly smart lyrics. He's nothing if not self-aware: Grubin sings about writing "a truthful song over an '80s groove" on the Cars-like "Song Away," the only Harrison-produced song that ended up on Mind Chaos' final version. Elsewhere, his hyper-literate tales of self-loathing posers and late-night intrigue give Hockey an appealingly witty personality. When they stretch out, they get intriguing, if mixed, results: "Work" reveals a slinkier, smokier side to the band, as well as a disco fetish, while "Preacher" travels from a gospel-infused ballad to blazing rock. Mind Chaos is an uneven but promising debut. Considering how much difficulty Hockey experienced in getting it out, it'll be interesting to hear what they do with a (hopefully) easier road ahead of them.

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager is the first album by the singer-songwriter Sam Duckworth, alias Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. Recorded mostly in his bedroom studio in Essex, it was released on 18 September 2006 on Atlantic Records.
While The Guardian complained that "Duckworth's style can get a little samey", allmusic.com's review said that he "is not particularly different from the other vaguely introspective young singer/songwriters out there.... with his plaintive, often monotonous and sometimes whiny vocals" and that his "simple acoustic guitar chords can get a little repetitive". The album is certified as Silver in the U.K., having sold over 60,000 copies.
"I-Spy", "Call Me Ishmael", "The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager" and "War of the Worlds" were all released as singles, the first two as a double A-side.
The Track If I Had £1 for Every Stale Song Title I'd Be 30 Short Of Getting Out Of this Mess was originally titled The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager.

So Much For The City
Five friends who grew up together in Dublin, called the Thrills, have produced a remarkably neat debut album. At the heart of their sound is a professed love for the tunes of the American West Coast of the '60s and '70s. Set to a backdrop of Al Green, Carole King, and the Band, they quickly pieced together tracks for their debut album, So Much for the City, during a four-month holiday on a beach in San Diego. But the Thrills aren't afraid to display more modern influences: a small audience at an Abbey Road gig was handed a one-sided 7" single with a cover of the Smiths' classic "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me." Their band name is also partly inspired by Michael Jackson's LP Thriller, and they covered "Billie Jean" on the English television show RE:COVERED. The three singles stand out on first listen as being radio-friendly hits: "Big Sur" opens with a zap of electronic keyboards, is driven by a melancholic banjo riff, and reinterprets the lyrics from the Monkees' theme: "Hey, hey you're the Monkees/People said you monkeyed around, but nobody's listening now." "Santa Cruz (You're Not That Far)" has an inventive time-shifting melody and gorgeous backing vocals, but "One Horse Town," while being a satisfying slice of surf pop, is too repetitive and bland.
There are moments when the Thrills produce some lavish, well-crafted pop songs: "Your Love Is Like Las Vegas" is a glorious uptempo anthem that features an inspired choppy guitar solo. Unfortunately, the slower songs on the album break up the uplifting momentum of the LP: "Hollywood Kids" and "'Til the Tide Creeps In" just drag along and aren't as successful as the simpler, jauntier numbers like the Dukes of Hazzard-style country-pop of "Say It Ain't So." With its impeccable vocal harmonies, catchy hooks, breathy laid-back vocals, and upbeat simple tunes, this is perfect bubblegum music with a nostalgic sound that adopts the sun-seeking vibe and sound of the Golden State, but still manages to remain contemporary. As for the rest, the one-dimensional repetitive lyrics ("You said, 'Let's go to San Diego/Hey that's where all the kids go'" on "Deckchairs and Cigarettes") do begin to irritate after a while, particularly when vocalist Conor Deasy constantly name-checks American cities. So it comes as no surprise that the band should record its debut LP in Los Angeles. Tony Hoffer, the producer behind Air, Beck, and the Smashing Pumpkins, offers a competent helping hand but the album would have benefited from a dirtier, bluesier sound; the production is far too polished, giving the LP a somewhat sterile feel. Still, So Much for the City is at times a beautifully rendered album with surprisingly solid songwriting; it's an unashamedly nostalgic musical postcard from the American West Coast. As a first LP, it shows signs of real promise, but it remains to be seen what direction the Thrills will follow next. They simply can't keep on borrowing from the Americana musical gold mine for much longer, because they couldn't sustain listener interest across the space of a second album.
