Sound & Vision

Mark Ronson plays Phil Spector for the day. No wait! It's good. There's no trumpets or anything... I think. Candie Payne has a wonderful voice, it's a shame she wasn't in the Pipettes, and that the Pipettes didn't have more good songs.

This is a song that was included on that actually-quite-good NME cover CD, Canadian Blast. Reminds me of Radiohead's 'How To Disappear Completely' a little bit, especially the bassline that sort of starts to meander its way into it, as if it were drifting itself do you see.

This band are amazing and I'm just gutted it took me so long to find them.

Ditto. This even has guitars in it. Distorted ones. Rar.

This is quite similar to the Weakerthans, but equally brilliant. Ellen probably now regrets texting me about three months ago saying, 'I've found this band I think you'll like,' because every time I went round to her place I put this song on. For a good long while. N.B. Los Campesinos! supported them in Newport too, back in May I think. Probably the most fun gig I've ever been to. I think me and Ellen possibly barn-danced during this.
