The trouble with producing inoffensive melodic indie pop is that there’s already so much of it to go around; new songs sometimes make only a tiny splash in the melodic indie pop pond, and the ripples are soon forgotten.

Which is pretty much the case here. It’s a perfectly decent effort, this, from German group Avocadoclub, which I picked up on some random sampler CD somewhere. Unfortunately for them it didn’t lead to great commercial success (and the claim on the band’s page that ‘The new album with the working title “The Upper Classes Loneliness!” is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2009’ doesn’t give great hope for future releases) so it could remain ever a career high.
