Geiger Counter is a journey. The new project from KatieJane Garside is typically diverse, with styles ranging from ethereal harp-strummed love songs, to post-punk Yeah Yeah Yeahs-ish spectaculars (My Brain Is Lit Like An Airport must be incredible live), to industrial rock howlers.

Little Brown Shoe is a favourite – I’d want it on a Halloween soundtrack. And KatieJane Garside’s versatile voice takes on the challenge exquisitely: lulling, screaming, purring, warbling. It’s so eclectic, in fact, that initially it felt near impossible to pick a star-rating, only I can’t stop listening to it as a whole. It reminds me of the Natural Born Killers soundtrack (a compliment) – please, someone make a film based on this album!
