I have to thank Kill Rock Stars for discovering this band, the mp3 for That Girl was on their site and by accident i just found this fantastiv gem. At first i was very aware that it sounded like Kenickie, but on a listen to Film Molecules its a whole new experience.
Obviously centered around some kind of abstract film plot/sub-genre etc it begins with the languid Fin, the voice of ex-Heavenly singer bubbles up and takes you by suprise, certainly not Lauren Laverne. This is the sombre begginings. Then Oh Katrina kicks in with sparling guitars, glorious melodies and odd noises of analogue origin in the background. You and me treads back down the sombre track, almost too easy to miss if you dont concentrate.
Single, Face of '73 is kitch (in the best possible way)and takes the mickey out of celebrity, porn and a whole host of other sleaze. Then, the albums highlight, That Girl chimes in with (girl/boy/girl/boy/girl/boy) an intro that wonderfully faded. This song namechecks a great few women who have been hailed as feminists, least of all Yoko Ono, and she makes the quite blatant point that Travis are boring and Le Tigre are smart. HOW CAN THIS NOT BE AMAZING!?!
Well i'll tell you, it is. The alternation between slow burners and guitar heavy songs with odd noises is perfect. The comical Love is Red/Green will remind you of the frog chorus.
All in all a treat of 3 minute not-pop-pop songs, aside from the closing track You are gone (so you should go) which is a damn sight closer to 6 mins, but it follows the pattern of sombre to jangle in between the pitches of the song.
Triuph. Smile. Jangle. Sombre.

HASH(0x99d29b1c) out of 5 stars The best band since Marine Research (maybe even better) 7 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Surely this, not the Hives or the Strokes, ought to be the future of music. Sixties punk pastiche is OK ... but there can't be much future in it. And most British 'alternative' music these days seems to sound like warmed over Pink Floyd. The Tender Trap (or are they really just called Tender Trap?) draw on the past too, but less obvious bits of it and so go in a different direction, one that hasn't already been followed all the way to the end or done to death. This is indie guitar pop/punk, but the flavours are the lazy, literate femininity of the Marine Girls, the stroppy happiness of the Buzzcocks or Hagar the Womb, and the liquid sophistication of French film from the 1960s and 70s (if "liquid sophistication" means nothing to you, think great camera-work, almost no plot, romance/sex as the central theme).
In an ideal summer "Oh Katrina" would be number one for weeks on end....
HASH(0x99d8eb40) out of 5 stars musical molecules (soy cheezy eh?) 11 Dec. 2012
By Robert C. Delfino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
the lovely amelia, and her two adorable cohorts rob and dj are back in the game with 'film molecules'. their latest, this past year's '10 songs about girls' was a flawlessly peppy affair; 'film molecules' while somewhat, SOMEWHAT quieter is equally as expansive, well.played and geniusly executed. the album, as said starts out a bit slowie, in the best possible way and then takes off running with "chemical reaction". and "emma" is probably one of the loveliest songs they've ever collectively written. you can't beat this for quality.

HASH(0x99d8eaec) out of 5 stars I probably could have liked this more. 14 Jun. 2008
By alainsane - Published on Amazon.com
Being a huge fan of both Heavenly and Marine Research, I was prepared to love this album, but there's something about it that puts me off. I think the instrumentation levels are way too loud, causing them compete with Amelia's vocals. I wish someone could re-work this and release it again, because it's got hints of beauty.
