We Show Up On Radar - A Loaf Of Bread, A Container Of Milk & A Stick Of Butter (Hello Thor Records)

We Show Up on Radar, aka Andy Wright, has been knocking around Nottingham for a few years now, and despite getting one of his tracks on an advert, it's not quite happened for him as yet.

That might change with this ep, of course. I've only been privy to 'It Should be You and and Me', a love song which opens with the line: "You called an air strike on my heart", and then carries on with the wartime analogy by mentioning the Great Escape and Steve McQueen and the rest.

It's a very pretty little thing, anyway, and brings to mind prime Elefant 6 stuff. My only gripe is that, just as you think you'd like to wallow in another few bars of the lovely melody, it suddenly stops. But then I suppose that leaves you wanting more...
