This band is crazy and they like it fast. Some of their tunes are pretty laid back, but most try and raise the roof with 'smash crash bash' drums, 'chug chug chug' guitar, 'boom boom bass' and 'I'm hurting a little inside' vocal delivery. The lead singer is prone to just start screaming half way through songs, so watch out for that. They make actual throwing up sound much more fun than it is! But why throw up when you've got Throwing Up to get on down to?

You'll be under these chap's spell pretty soon. They know exactly when to make you dance, when to make you think and when to make you squirm with how flippin' brilliant they are. Forget Harry Potter, what does he know about a guitar? Raquels are great at mixing it all up a bit whilst retaining the elements of a catchy, twitchy toe inducing sound. Keep a bloodshot eye on these guys, or a normal eye, depending on how excited you become after listening to them.

These lovely ladies, and man, make earning music fans complete devotion look easy. Betty And The Werewolves is the name, earnest yet energetic songs are the game. They embody all that is great about being in a band. They dress in funky clothes, they have a great name that follows the 'Someone And The Somethings' template, they write catchy songs rich in melody and they wield guitars! They sound really nice, and if you're nice, you'll love them! That's the basics. Betty And The Werewolves, come 'ere and get a big hug. Please.

A dudette from the Vivian Girls, a dude from Woods?! This band must be amazing. You got it spot on sister! The Babies kick out the feel good jams and they don't stop kicking for no man or beast! Both lyrically simple and tunefully simple, The Babies are a whole lot of fun. Their songs are free wheelin', motor bike driving odes to the good times. You'd be a fool not to put them on your ipod, start driving a motor bike and drive off into the sunset shouting "the open road".

Often, bands with enthusiasm for crazy ideas and throwing together different sounds are fobbed off as arty fart farts. Please, for the love of Bill and Ted, don't fob off Jonquil. They are far too infectiously catchy and enthusiastic for you to simply brush them off your shoulder. Coming on strong with summery vibes and sounds that make you want to dance in three different directions at once, Jonquil are quite frankly brilliant. Fans of strange structured songs that are easy on the ears and the eyes will love Jonquil. How can you not love a band called Jonquil? And the main dude from Jonquil is now doing Chad Valley which is equally brilliant. His croon is the talk of the town, and Jonquil are the cat's pyjamas.

The name is funny, because if any one's pet opened their mouth and barked out a Prize Pets song, the owners would be arrested. Prize Pets deliver unsettling menace in tight packages, straight to the door of your ears. But they don't bother to knock, they just barge straight on in. Prepare to have your limbs moving in all different directions when their anthems "New Weirdos" and "Chocolate Advert" spring into life. Search Prize Pets on and you'll find a page with a free song, simple as that. And don't worry, their songs don't hang around for long. They rock then they stop.

The Castillians. Hot damn. These guys know how to rock. And roll no doubt. It sounds like they penned a bunch of hummable rock'n'roll ditties, then got really pissed off just before they sang them. The pace is furious, the singing is furious but they retain their poppyness. So if you like your guys wielding guitars with a pissed off atttitude that they are happy to share, don't cast your peepers any further than The Castillians. You may sit there, listening to them and thinking "I could do that". News flash buddy! You could, but you didn't. The Castillians did.

Young Man, there's no need to feel down, I said Young Man, pick yourself off the ground. There's no need to be unhappy. Take some time out of your busy lives for Young Man, people of the world! You'll feel all the better for it. I promise. His songs don't got time for the radio, the man or the industry. They just got time for laid back day dreaming and luscious melodies. Don't be surprised if your doctor starts prescribing you Young Man as an anti-depressant or a de-stressifizer. But do be surprised if he prescribes it as a contraceptive.

The latest fresh faced talent to join the Odd Future collective is Frank Ocean. And in the grand tradition of the Odd Future dudes, he takes on the mainstream rap world with his own ideas. But where Frank Ocean differs from his Odd Fut contemporaries is his style of smooth, intelligent R'N'B that is all over his debut release. Which is available to download for free of course. Just when you thought Odd Future couldn't change the game any further, they branch out into slightly more commercial water. But it's definitely slightly, because Frank Ocean still has the same view of girls and the crazy half dumb/half witty chunks of wisdom that Tyler The Creator, Hodgy Beats and the other dudes have. Seriously. Frank Ocean. Get on it.

These dudes have only released one song so far, but with that one track, they have got the 2011 summer party started. Super early. Even if they don't release any more songs, or any other songs that are as good vibes inducing as "Do You Believe", SOWHATHOMIEEEE? They have given birth to a solid gold nugget of good vibrations, and you better believe they are going to squeeze out some more. Believe.
