  • IPSO FACTO - Live http://www.myspace.com/ipsofactomyspace Ipso Facto are Rosalie Cunningham (vocals, guitar), Cherish Kaya (keys), Victoria Smith (drums) and Samantha Valentine (bass). They play a monochrome psychedelia - everything is taut black and white, guitars sound like they're being played through straitjackets and the organ lines like slowly snapping ice. Though it's something more than a Horrors-esque revivalism of dark garage-pop; Ipso Facto possess a cutting edge of melody and melancholy whilst most bands struggle with the crux of their own conviction. THE XX - Live http://www.myspace.com/thexx Understated, minimalist and hauntingly soulful, this South London quartet are purveyors of distilled laid-back new wave pop. Think Massive Attack cuddling up to Coco Rosie, Aaliyah to The Cure, with boy-girl vocal interplay, simple instrumentals and sampled beats played in real time, melded together to create space.
