Atlantis Black/Casual Saints

Two singles received this week that both sound (unashamedly) old-fashioned. But I know at least one of these singles is coming out on Manchester's Fat Northener Records so I need to take notice. After all, if I thought badly of anyone who harked back to the old days I would have never bothered with Franz Ferdinand, would I?

Atlantis Black are definite 70s. They do a mid-tempo ballard to start but then take a more Bluesy attitude and it gets very enoyable. The rockier the better, in this case. Meanwhile, the Casual Saints are from a decade later and manage to mix melody and Clash-like music very effectively (and considering I hate the Clash that's something)
