Was at Bestival this weekend.

Absolute best bits included Stevie Wonder playing the hits, Sigur Ros playing some of my favourites and Justice doing what Justice do.

Also great were Django Django, Field Music, Bats for Lashes, 2 Bears, Caribou/4 Tet DJ set, De La Soul and (somewhat surprisingly) Alabama Shakes.

Sadly missed Hot Chip due to immense tiredness, SBTRKT due to immense crowdedness and was just too far away from The xx to properly enjoy their set.

Oh and I also found a great musical comic (not for the easily offended). She had me in stitches with this:


Superb few days would definitely go again, some of the Wildlife based fancy dress was incredible!

these guys are so talented.


12-09-2012, 11:04 PM
I would like to add JJ DOOM/DOOM, Buraka Som Systema and Roots Manuva to the list of fantastic shows at Bestival. The Arcadia stage was also brilliant, with the best sound system of the weekend (Funktion One is the best!)
Lots of good DJ sets all over the place, DJ Derek played an amazing swansong, Scratch Perverts were a bit disappointing mind..

13-09-2012, 01:11 PM
Arcadia was pretty awesome (hello crazy guy standing on top of a massive pole ridiculously high up). Though I do remember being irked by some DJ who decided that playing "Walking in Air" seemed like a fantastic idea (we were camped fairly close by).

Kind of sad I missed DOOM (also the Cuban Brothers looked like good fun and Bellowhead clashed with Sigur Ros/Stevie) but such is the way of festivals.

@ Dubbill

Ooh I'm liking that.


Really liking this song, will need to seek out the album for a listen.


19-09-2012, 06:06 PM
Natasha Khan is back! Gonna be hard to match her last album, and I'll be honest the few tracks I've heard make me feel like she's gone backwards a little. Or maybe just in a different direction than I'd prefer, but the songs still sound good. Have to wait and see what the album is like.


Also, this Visionist mix that was on Dusk & Blackdown's Rinse show is amazing and I don't know why I haven't posted it sooner.


19-09-2012, 06:18 PM
I bought Two Suns and Fur and Gold pretty much as soon as I got back from Bestival and am rather looking forward to the new album. Laura is an absolutely gorgeous song (coming from not having heard any of her music before it was the highlight of her Bestival set for me).


19-09-2012, 07:35 PM
Yeah the songs are certainly gorgeous, she's too good to make anything totally duff. But after the leap from Fur and Gold to Two Suns, which established her pretty well, I was hoping she'd go a bit nuts on this one. Then again I haven't heard half of it!

Psychedelic rock. The new album is bloody brilliant, and can be listened from Spotify. Including a cover of "Your Head is Reeling" by Ultimate Spinach

Also, I've been listening to a lot of Light Asylum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTk3R--Heug) (warning: flashing lights) lately. Awesome... electronic music, I guess? Love the vocalist's sound, powerful.

Oh man, I've only heard the Shlohmo remix ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UKY91umpdo&feature=related ) of that before. Nice to see the original is so great. She's way the goods.

21-09-2012, 04:27 PM

The album is really solid and they added more layers to their sound which makes it even more enjoyable to listen to. It kinda remind me a bit of The United States of America so err can anyone suggest more of these types of albums? I don't know how to describe it to be honest (lolpleb).

My favourite tracks are Endors Toi, Mind Mischief and Why Won't They Talk to Me.

21-09-2012, 05:26 PM
Come on here, listen to great Lianne La Havas song for the first time, scroll down and hear a nice remix, then notice on the FACT website one of my favourites Laurel Halo has also done a remix (http://www.factmag.com/2012/09/21/laurel-halo-preps-new-release-for-hyperdub-releases-fantastic-lianne-la-havas-remix/) of the same song.

So, Lianne La Havas, eh?

I find that KT Tunstall doesn't get as much love as she deserves, sitting here as I am listening to her first album (Eye to the Telescope). I say this despite the fact I thought her last album wasn't exactly amazing (although there are definitely some great tracks on there) but on the whole just offers a nice sound. So, I'll just leave this here. I remember watching that particular Jools Holland (for those unaware, a weekly live-music show on the BBC where a variety of acts play, regardless of prominence and genre) and, like the rest of the audience for her performance, being completely mesmerised and impressed.


21-09-2012, 06:51 PM
@ The JG Man

Quite right. Funnily enough I really liked her most recent album, thought it was at least on par with the first and better than the second.

Apparently she's going to crop up on The Cuban Brothers album (whenever it is eventually released), shall be quite interesting to see what they come up with between them. And having mentioned The Cuban Brothers I'm wishing I hadn't missed them at Bestival looked like a fun performance

21-09-2012, 07:02 PM
Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy on the whole Tiger Suit; Uummannaq Song, Glamour Puss, Push That Knot Away, Golden Frames, The Entertainer all work really well for me, but I felt that some of the bigger tracks, like (Still A) Weirdo just did nothing for me. I think her second album gets a bit more flak than it deserves simply because the big single off it was more 'light' than anything off Telescope, but some of the moodier songs on there are easily on par. Whilst Black Horse is definitely my favourite song of hers, especially the long version including all the build-up (damn you radio edits!), Beauty of Uncertainty is nicely tucked away at the end of the second album and is wonderful.


I do eagerly await her new material, whenever that is. I also recommend checking out her acoustic album, which includes a couple of covers and some acoustic versions of stuff off Telescope, but it too is just really pleasant to listen to.

21-09-2012, 08:04 PM
Plus there's the Christmas EP where she does a rather nice version of 2000 Miles (the original was always one of my favourite Christmas songs) - here's a live performance of it:

That's actually the Laurel Halo remix... I haven't heard the original either.

This is the Laurel Halo version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEexnPRulHI
The one I posted is definitely Shlohmo, even though it's a very different sound to the Camping or Places EPs, for instance.

I have to shamefully admit I've let Flying Lotus pass me by up until now (only listened to a bit of Cosmogramma). New album sounds great though, time to jump in.

27-09-2012, 07:50 PM
Yeah, the Flylo video is beautiful beyond measure. I've watched it like 20 times now. You guys might want to have a listen to the new album online: http://www.npr.org/2012/09/23/161299030/first-listen-flying-lotus-until-the-quiet-comes

It's really great.

27-09-2012, 11:38 PM
Flylo has passed me by as well.

I have to say giving the album a listen that . . . I'd either love it with repeated listens or it would be one of those albums that will crop up when I listen on shuffle, think "I have to give this another try," then abandon half way through. It really could be either way!

28-09-2012, 01:59 AM
Y'all got me listening to FlyLo (thanks RPS) and damn, I could watch this all day

Bob Mould - Silver Age. Dear god what an album. Up there with anything he's done in Copper Blue and Husker Du days.

Here's Bob blowing the windows out on the Letterman show.

Just that solo around 2:30 has made me instantly happier than any music has this year. Love it when your heroes get older and just come back stronger.

He's touring in the US, playing Copper Blue straight through. It would make this old man very happy if they came to UK. One of the best (and loudest) gigs of my life was Sugar at Clapham Grand 1992, absolutely ferocious, they barely paused between songs, blew through Copper Blue and the then un-heard Beaster at gale force, the audience staggered out punch-drunk.

28-09-2012, 09:40 PM
Just saw Aaron Goldberg live tonight. Totally crazy gig. They played this for like 20 minutes and did all kinds of amazing things with it.

29-09-2012, 11:11 AM

That synthophilia reminds me of this hilarious little-known guy called Donny Benet; his whole awkward aethestic is fantastic:


He's also an actual genius:

Been waiting for this to get archived. Dusk + Blackdown Rinse FM (http://rinse.fm/2012/10/thursday-27th-september/) show from last Thursday. Brilliant show as always, but this month was especially full of new producers to keep an eye on. Blackdown should have a tracklist up on his blog (http://blackdownsoundboy.blogspot.co.uk/) eventually.

Jokers Of The Scene - In Order To Trance (Hrdvsion Remix)


04-10-2012, 03:49 PM
Seriously, do you mates know about what's so special a recent K-pop Gangnam Style?

I personally is not fond of heavy metal things, except for maybe some game soundtrack (hey, What Makes a Good Man is such a great music, not just the music, but the lyrics is very meaningful). The first time I came across this lyrics I really saw nothing special (if the Chinese translation I read is accurate). Today I read a column from a local newspaper to understand that the singer is actually teasing the economic elites in our society. Gangnam is an important business district of Seoul, occupied by the Korea's economic powers. People working and living there are living a luxury style, the so-called Gangnam style, like some god damned nobles. Truth is, according to the statistics quoted by the writer of the article, people there are spending 133% of their income! While most borrowers of sub-prime loan in America's subprime crisis actually spent 128% of their income.

04-10-2012, 04:18 PM

It's catchy and has an amusing video so it went viral. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.

The Wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gangnam_Style#Background) on the track tells a rather different story from the one you've posted. It seems to be more about mocking wannabe hipsters rather than trying to make any meaningful commentary.

I grew up listening only to Heavy Metal, Rock and Rap.

Guess which genres are underrepresented / totally butchered today? Hence, I listen to silence.

I'm going to guess neo-folk for the first one and dubsteb for the second one. How close did I hit?

On the topic though, I've been listening to a lot of Yom (and the Wonder Rabbis) lately. Absolutely fantastic.

Wait, you can only listen to the genres you grew up with? Branch out, man. Also, rap is butchered? When the hell did that happen? Go listen to DOOM's latest, or my current crush Count Bass D.

Anyway, some more phat jazz up in this bitch:

His right hand at the very end is the funniest fucking thing I've seen all day. Morrowind's theme was great, though, even if he kinda layered on a bit too many ornamentations and doubled-up octaves.

27-10-2012, 10:52 PM
And this from Andrzej Korzynski for the film Possession. The film itself is great, got everything you could want from a horror film. Worth a look for something different to watch.

Not much of the soundtrack on youtube, unfortunately.

Martha Wainwright also has a new album out I've been listening to alot, especially "Proserpina" which was a song written by her mother (Kate McGarrigle) a few weeks before she died. Martha Wainwright has one of the most beautiful, powerful, bizarre voices out there right now, I think (she did a cover album of Edith Piaf songs that were great). Anyhow, I can't get this song out of my head. It's completely haunting:

Dan Snaith AKA Caribou's other project Daphni which he uses for stuff that he's more prone to put in DJ sets than the more focused Caribou albums. The album is a mixed bag in my opinion but it has some great stuff such as this:

Not a great song by any means, but an awesome (if a mite disturbing video)

I've been listening to an awful lot of Eläkeläiset (The Pensioners) lately. They're mainly known for making humppa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humppa)-covers for many pop music songs, like "Light My Fire" below. Lyrics usually are about stuff that pensioners do - go to weekend dances, eating around million kinds of medicine, drinking lots of lots of booze and so forth.

Jilted Generation next Lambchop!

The problem I have with The Prodigy is that I can't think of them without thinking of WipEout...and that now there's no Studio Liverpool to keep making them. Grrr. Great music though. I heard most of the 90's through my brother and sister playing their CDs. A lot of that stuff I've started getting into now. It was funny though when I started listening to the first Garbage album and was going "...hey, I remember this!" That's just the recent example too. I think "I've got the poison; I've got the remedy" will be etched into my brain forever though.

Anyhow. Any fans of The Pretty Reckless? There was something a bit odd about a 16/17 y.o. singing the things they were (and the videos even turned that up to eleven) but, I really liked the first album. Turns out they've got a new album coming out soon and released this new lyric video thing. I quite like it. Ended up going a few more of their post-album singles and there's some interesting stuff.


I was a bit concerned with the beginning; I'm not in love with the "slow songs on a rock album" but it was obviously intentional and I haven't been able to remove it from my head since I found it last night.

Just discovered Mirel Wagner. I think the video description puts it best: "Mirel Wagner is a 23 year old singer/songwriter, born in Ethiopia and raised in Espoo, Finland. Since age 16 she's writing gloomy Blues and Folk songs, stripped down to the bone. It's just about her airy but rough voice and a minimalistic guitar picking. Avoiding theatralic gestures effortlessly her music has a unique intensity and emotional weight alike. "No Death" is the first single from her debut album".

Also, if you like dubstep, ButchClancy is good. old news, but good.

I'm sure everyone's seen this video with his remix of "Pumped Up Kicks," but his soundcloud has more stuff that's just as good

Hadn't realised that Charlotte Hatherley has utterly reinvented herself as Sylver Tongue. I'll definitely miss the old Hatherley, as her solo output was great and New Worlds is one of the most underrated guitar pop records of recent years. However her new stuff sounds pretty damn good.

uuuuhhh... okay. Dunno if this is the right thread for this one. Song's pretty catchy, though

Put this in the metal thread as well, but i'm not normally a fan of anything even approaching metal - but i LOVE this.

Spotify bizarrely reccomended it after i listed to some Godspeed You Black Emperor. It has an amazing tempo change about 6:30 in, but you really need to have listened along that far to appreciate it

New Frightened Rabbit album - Pedestrian Verse

First impressions are that it's a cut above Winter of Mixed Drinks but doesn't hit the highs of Midnight Organ Fight (though I feel this is going to be something that's said throughout the rest of their career, that album is something special). So a success then, hopefully they'll continue their ascension from underrated cult band to (inter)national success.


On a more rockier slant I've also been listening to Fat Goth. While it's not the best track on their album "You'll Find Me Da Club (and to be perfectly frank, I'm having a cracking time!)" is the best track title so far this year.


28-01-2013, 05:59 PM
Oh my god, a new The Knife song. Apperantly, they have a new album comming soon, after what, seven years? The video is quite, uh, odd. So is the music, by the way.


28-01-2013, 08:54 PM
I usually don't like Leaether Strip much but occassionally Claus Larsen produced those a bit silly but catchy pop songs instead of his usual more agressive or moody stuff. This one I missed before. Catchy as hell.

Rick Redbeard - No Selfish Heart

It's a solo album from the lead singer of the excellent and criminally underrated Phantom Band featuring stuff that doesn't quite fit on their albums. Part of the charm of the Phantom Band for me is that they seem to be an act whose members want to pull it in all kind of different directions but still manage to come up with cohesive and brilliant albums. From the sounds of this it's clear where their more folky influence are coming from. It's a beautiful album.


02-02-2013, 11:46 PM

Yeah, it's not going to change anyone's life but as a continuation of something I already love, it suits me just fine.

04-02-2013, 11:25 AM
I'm finding the MBV thing odd. It's rare that I see such excitement over something and think "I've never heard of them and can think of exactly none of their songs." This isn't a comment on their music (which I haven't listened to enough of yet to judge) I just find not having heard of things that were a "big deal" at all a rather rare occurrence.

I learned about Daniel Johnston from this thread. If you like him you should check out Lone Pigeon. The similarities are incredible both favour super low-fi recording, and both can write an unbelievable catchy tune. Unfortunately LP's also suffered from some serious mental health issues, but it did help shape some beautiful, weird songs (feels a bit wrong to be thankful for his problems - you know what I mean). Thankfully he's ok now and joined up with most of the Beta Band (which he helped form) to form the Aliens.

Here he is at his heartbreaking best:


But he does a lot of upbeat stuff too.

Yeah, Lone Pigeon definitely had some issues (he's not alone in that sense with ex Beta Band members. Singer Steve Mason once went missing for two weeks and was contemplating suicide). Good to see them both doing better and making great music. I mention this mostly because I'm reminded there's a new Steve Mason album coming this year as well. The first single is great:


09-02-2013, 01:39 PM
E is still doing what he does best. Another artist that will be forever held up as having recent albums that either aren't as strong or prone to taking new directions as his earlier material. However for an artist to have released 10 albums without any absolute stinkers (admittedly I very rarely return to the recent "trilogy" of Hombre Lobo, End Times and Tomorrow Morning, which are solid but not spectacular) is good going. On first listen the new Eels album "Wonderful, Glorious" is a step back above this trilogy and marks a welcome return of the fuzzier more aggressive side of Souljacker, mixed in with the more reflective style of Blinking Lights. Would like to see them live again, saw them a few years back and thought the way that they reworked old material was superb.

I just discovered "Frightened Rabbit." They are kind of like a Scottish version of "The National," if you're into that. My current favorite song of theirs is "The Twist." I have a thing about songs about dancing:

Plus, I'm a MASSIVE Kurt Weill fan, especially "Three Penny Opera" (like, I can sing entire songs in their original German, even though I don't speak alot of German---which is how much I love it).

But I just discovered Nina Simone's 1964 live version of "Pirate Jenny" which I think is probably the best ever recorded version of that song--not to mention one of the best live recordings of pretty much anything, I think. Which is a bit of hyperbole, sure, but it really is very good.

It's the most pitiless and vicious rendering of the song I've ever heard--kind of like punk rock 20 years before that was even a thing:

The sound of lossless formats vs MP3s as I make the decision about whether to re-rip my CD library.

At the moment I'm leaning towards yes but I'm not quite sure how to manage it yet. I've certainly got enough space on my laptop for re-ripping everything I have the CDs for it just then becomes a question of how to manage it. I do like having my entire collection on my iPod (which obviously wont be possible in lossless format - I'm going to have to start culling MP3s as it is) so need a rethink.

Might have separate folders with all my stuff in MP3 and everything I can in lossless, maybe stick over a few of my absolute favourite albums in lossless onto the iPod and live with the lower quality on the move (it has been find for years). Thing is, I'm not sure I'm convinced that iTunes is a piece of software that will cope with me mixing and matching like that (I have found it a pain in the arse enough as is). Ah, the organising of music libraries - definitely comes under first world problems doesn't it?!

Juan Carlo
18-02-2013, 07:32 AM
I've been thinking about re-ripping too as I ripped most of my collection at 128kps mp3 just because my older mp3 player at the time couldn't hold much. But I just have WAAAAY too many CDs to re-rip them all and most are in boxes at my parent's house anyway.

Honestly, though, re-ripping would mostly be an OCD thing. Maybe it's just because I've listened to shitty headphones for too many years and it's ruined my ears or my ability to discern what sounds good, but I honestly can't tell the difference between 128kbps and a CD. Like, I've switched back and forth on the same song before just to see if I could, but I can't.

18-02-2013, 11:32 AM

Like, I've switched back and forth on the same song before just to see if I could, but I can't.

I think the thing I tend to notice most is that percussion tends to sound a bit crisper and occasionally I'll notice a few more subtleties in the backing vocals I might not have picked up on before. Though with the latter I'm still in two minds whether this is because I'm actually listening to the album rather than having it on while I'm doing something else.

I've just ordered some new headphones that are better quality than my current set so I'm probably going to wait until they arrive before making a decision.

19-02-2013, 12:54 PM
So over the last few months No One Can Ever Know by the Twilight Sad has grown into one of my favourite albums of last year. It kind of passed me by through the majority of last year but I've found myself returning to it a lot more than many other albums. The more synth heavy direction really works for them and though others may disagree I think it's easily their best work. Wouldn't have expected them to become the band that Editors could have been if they hadn't gone all shit (again some may not see this as praise, but it is!):

Second video released for the forthcoming new Bowie album today. First reviews also starting to pop up this week from the press preview playbacks. If this is 'one of the weakest tracks' (The Quietus (http://thequietus.com/articles/11500-david-bowie-the-next-day-review)) then the album looks like it's going to be very good indeed.

(there's a film intro, the song kicks in at 1:58)


27-02-2013, 02:48 AM
This review (http://www.dustedmagazine.com/reviews/5850) sums up Endless Boogie perfectly:

Endless Boogie is not high-concept, and as such, their music is easily deconstructed. There’s pop songwriting — then there’s these guys. There’s very little build-up to get to their songs. You’re there. But wait! Time travel is for suckers. You want to extend your time on Earth because it’s all you got. The triple-length jams that roll out of this forge give the illusion that everything’s the same, while robbing you of your time.

It's hard not to admire a group so utterly devoid of pretense. "We're Endless Boogie and we... Well, shit, you already know."

I mentioned in one of my last posts here that I gave up listening to Metric's latest album, Synthetica. I've since gone back and listened to it many times over and have come to the conclusion that I enjoy it muchly. Not my favourite album of theirs, but there's some great stuff on there. Anyhow, I bring this up because I was listening to what is probably my favourite song of theirs:


I think it best sums up what they do; it's a really good example of their sound, what their lyrics are typically like and on top of that is just solid minutes of rocking. Not to get too deep either, but there is something that really resonates with the lyrics for me.

27-02-2013, 11:30 PM
I'm trying to decide if I can be arsed to make a guitar arrangement of this. It is rather pretty.

So, listening to the new Bowie album. I'm in heaven. It's fantastic, not merely 'good for an artist in decline' type of good, it's actually up there with his best. I still can't quite believe it exists and I get to listen over and over and over and over. Also, set within the context of the rest of the album Where Are We Now? is amazing.

It's fine to act like a gushing fool when it's Bowie, right?

02-03-2013, 07:38 PM
I listened to the new Bowie. I quite like it and will definitely give it another listen (unlike the other comeback album of the month m b v which just had me shrugging my shoulders, wondering what the fuss was about and moving on!).

I have to admit Bowie is one of the major artists that I've not yet got around too (hence why I'm not offering much more of an opinion - I have very little context for the new stuff). I tend to like his music when I hear it but I've never quite got around to actually buying any of his stuff yet. I get the feeling he's not a "best of" type artist and more one where I should start with some albums.

Any starting points?


I've been listening to Anais Mitchell who I'm increasingly becoming convinced is among the best things in folk music right now. Also noticing the comments on there it seems that she was performing on the same bill as Karine Polwart (one of the other best things in folk music). Would love to see them collaborating but that's just wishful thinking on my part!

It's fine to act like a gushing fool when it's Bowie, right?

Totally justified. Just a huge pleasure and an unexpected gift to have him back on such form. To quote the sign off The Quietus' review:

David Bowie, then. History, but still happening. And the next day, and the next.
Greatness. It can’t go on. It goes on.
It's sent me back to pick through Heathen, Outside and Reality with re-opened ears, I largely ignored them when they came out.

Meanwhile, the Johnny Marr solo album. Glorious guitar playing, patchy songs, you wonder how great the whole might have been might have been if he'd got the right producer instead doing it all himself.

But my god where it's good, it's a joy. I can't stop playing this one

Any starting points?

The stupid answer? Everything. The cheesy answer? Your favourite Bowie is such a personal thing I could say a couple of albums that someone else would disagree with completely. Anyway, top of my list is Station to Station. Pretty much perfect from start to finish. Hunky Dory has a lot of his classics on it. Out of the Berlin trilogy I'd go for Low.

I've been listening to Anais Mitchell who I'm increasingly becoming convinced is among the best things in folk music right now. Also noticing the comments on there it seems that she was performing on the same bill as Karine Polwart (one of the other best things in folk music). Would love to see them collaborating but that's just wishful thinking on my part!


That brought back some childhood memories, haven't heard that melody for yonks. My mum used to play Alan Stivell's Reflets a lot when I was little. :)

I say start (near) the beginning, that's what I did when I first got into Bowie 10 years ago and I haven't regretted it.

His first two albums have some good stuff, but I wouldn't start there. I'd go for "Hunky Dory" and "Ziggy Star Dust," then just listen to all of his albums sequentially up through "Scary Monsters" (which is his last great album before a fallow period in the 1980s).

Then skip over everything and stop at "Outside" and "Earthling"--after those two I don't think any of his stuff in the 2000s is "must hear," although none of them are terrible.

Anyhow, it's impossible to pick favorite Bowie albums. His stuff from the 1970s is almost all awesome and he changes genres enitrely from album to album, so if you don't like one album just skip it for now and move onto the next one. Chances are you'll find something you love.

Definitely don't skip "Low," though. That's my personal favorite of his.

Usually, I think Metallica is pretty meh most of the time but honestly, I came around and found one of their old shit and I admit, I headbanged while listening to this. Shame for the last part being dragged on for a minute.

Having got some new (slightly better quality) headphones I've been listening to some old favourites and sometimes it's like hearing a song again for the first time. Plus I'd genuinely forgotten just how good Joanna Newsom's Have One On Me is. Think this song is probably the most gorgeous. Great lyrics too.

Edit: Heh, didn't watch them first, I suppose both could be slightly NSFW

Thank you for giving me the jolt to finally buy that album, Lambchops. Love Joanna Newsom, but Have One On Me got stuck in limbo on my 'to buy' list since it came out. Now I feel extra silly because it's as good as everyone said. No idea it was a damn triple album, either.

This is, quite frankly, immense. Wen is going to have a massive year.

Brief snippet of this played on Radio 4 reminded me just how much I like Orbital.

New Ghost and Writer single.

I am tired of Frank Spinath being in every single German synthpop band but this one I like.

Officially free here (http://www.dependent.de/media/audio/mp3/ghost-and-writer-allinone.zip).

If you've heard the hype for the Daughter debut album "If You Leave" you should totally believe it. It's excellent (though hearing so much heartbreak and bitterness over the course of an album does always have me reaching for something a bit cheerier straight after!).

Ooh just discovered that there's a James Kelly solo record coming out. It's basically the Coral trying out a new style in all but name.

The first songs really rather good, looking forward to the album.

Matchbox Twenty, some Queen and some Monty Python to mix it up.
