CMJ 2012 is kind of slim pickins for Anglophiles this year, with worthy post punks Savages taking most of the ink/slack. But if you have a jones for the Union Jack, one option is Manchester, UK’s Fantasy Rainbow who are playing three shows this week: tonight (10/17, 7 PM) at The Rock Shop for the Let’s Get Messy Party; Thursday (10/18, 7 PM) upstairs at Pianos for the Old Flame Records showcase (free); and Friday afternoon (10/19) for the Old Flame//Heist or Hit day part that is currently looking for a new home after Delinquency got shut down.

On record at least, Fantasy Rainbow the pseudonymn of Oliver Catt who makes a laid-back pop not too far away sonically from Real Estate. Fantasy Rainbow’s debut album, Bos Taurus, is out next month in the UK and will make it’s Stateside bow in early 2013. You can download the album’s first single, “Condominium,” at the top of this post or stream it below, along with a video for “O, Wierdo.”
