Winter’s gone, spring is here (apparently). This is a playlist of songs that guided the new musical ship through those long, dark nights.
Well done Leeds, you’ve made a lot of angry young teens (who, like the rest of us, are undoubtedly sick to the back teeth of wet West London waste band after wet west London waste band) rather happy.
The sound of a man coming into his own. Keep going, Ben, we’ll all forget that Jai Paul one soon anyway.
Oh, the power of a live performance. They’ve been doing this for over ten years now, so it’s nice to see some good guys (finally) come out #winning.
*Bass face* - a perfect sub 3 minute power-dream-pop track. The end.
Was always a tad sceptical of Cymbals, but this, oh this, smacked away any doubts. What glorious deliverance.
A session & interview with Southampton trio Wild Smiles I filmed for One For The People TV.
OH LOOK, ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE AUSTRALIAN BANDS. That’s right, Flyyyyyying Colours debut sounds utterly brilliant (and it’s free, too).
Along with Kurt Vile’s new album, this is one of those perfect Sunday songs. Total feel good vibes.
Seven minutes long? You what? In an age when we can’t stay focussed for more than 30 seconds? Yep, and it’s one of the best things you’ll hear in 2013, hands down.
