ABSOLUTE ZERO
Little Green Cars  (Liberation/Universal)

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that these Irish independents have the echo of Coldplay and Mumford & Sons about them.  

The producer of those bands - Markus Dravs - has helped create a signature sound that make Little Green Cars sound like sons of those, while still retaining a youthful vitality in songs such as My Love Took Me To The River To Silence Me and the anthemic love ode Them.  

Steve Appleby is a more natural fit as a lead vocalist than Faye O'Rourke though the "please believe my lies at least I know you gave it your best try" is the most interesting of these soul-bearing twenty-something songs.  

Little Green Cars are eminently listenable to even if their creative fuel is regular rather than high octane.
