CHAMPS - Vamala - 3/10. Not really my cup of tea. Tedious and this kind of pop (don't see what's indie about it) only works if the melodies are catchy as hell. Not the case here.

15. The Elgins - Darling Baby (1966): 7/10

Good collection of Motown songs, perhaps a bit formulaic in the sense that it doesn't surprise. But I do like the take on some classics with a female voice, and the singer's is actually quite a pleasant voice.
Something I would like to listen again.
