Jack Smith 2005

With the release of Howl Howl Gaff Gaff the Shout Out Louds are set to overtake The Arcade Fire as the most talked about new band in Britain. The Swedish five piece's stunning brand of delicate melodic music could be described as a softer version of the Canadians' chaotic indie sounds;they've only just started to ripple the surface of the music scene but expect them to make waves very soon.

This atmospheric music initially has the subtle air of optimistic hope that surrounds a new relationship. Listen more closely and you see a broken heart expressing a tender philosophical outlook on love that has slipped through the fingers.

Let the sentiment of this album warm the cockles of your heart with beautifully executed tracks such as "Go Sadness" and "The Comeback", which are reminiscent of The Flaming Lips' music and the vocal style of Mercury Rev. This remarkable debut will draw out empathy in everyone who's lucky enough to hear it.
