Beard recommends

We at Beard love you. That's why we want to share a couple of new bands with you.

Something of a Glasgow underground super-group, The Royal We feature members of Multiplies, Dot To Dot and Pro-Forma, among others. They sound mental, but pop! Seeing as I enjoy both mental music and pop, this is undoubtedly a good thing. The tunes on their myspace page are rough around the edges but they offer a glimpse of their colourful riot of punk, pop, noise and art. There are definitely hints of such wonky pop practitioners Yummy Fur and Royal Trux there, but really, The Royal We are a law unto themselves. And no, I'm not going to make any weak puns like "long may they reign." Oh...

Next up, pop pickers, are Daddy & The Husband. Recommended to me by both Rachel BMX Bandit and Beard's own Ian MacBeth these ladies (and boy) have but one song up on their myspace profile, but jimmy wilickers, it's a wee beauty. My Darling You Smoke Crack, is cheeky, sexy, and stylish girl group electro-pop, with the best smoke blowing sounds this side of Snoop.

We'll try to keep this a regular feature, cos it's not like the magazine comes out regularly. Ha ha! But we are working on it, honest...
