Scandinavian by design but closer to the Dutch school of happy-go-lucky power pop, breezy Beezewax jerked the radar when Ken ‘Posies’ Stringfellow produced their South Of Boredom disc.

They have that charming second language factor, using it to combine adventurous harmonies and wall-of-sound drumming with wistful lyricism. “The Brighton Concorde” and “Ballad Of The Beaches” finger their Anglophile sensibilities. Pungent rather than cheesy, Oh Tahoe’s full-force folk rocking refreshes a vintage formula. If you liked Posies’ Frosting On The Seater but are tired of waiting for a decent follow-up from that Seattle band, this could do the (cheap) trick.
