Haunted Hearts - Johnny Jupiter
Yesterday I saw Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles, who were both absolutely brilliant, and here they are together with their project Haunted Hearts.
I’ve listened to their latest track Johnny Jupiter all day and will no doubt spend lots of time listening to their debut album Initiation, which is out later this month.
Courtney Barnett - Bein’ Around
The paramedic thinks i’m clever cos i play guitar, I think she’s clever cos she stops people dying… I was going to be providing respite/end of life care for poorly children but then the job offer was taken away from me because of my inability to drive. I can now make plans for spring/ summer - bought tickets to Live at Leeds where Courtney Barnett is gracing the line-up. Treated myself to tickets to see her in Sheffield too.
The Fat White Family - Touch The Leather
I haven’t been able to get enough of this SXSW version of Touch The Leather. I swear i published it a week or so back - that post has disapeared into an internet black hole.
Strangeyonder - Positive Energy
One way to find new music is to allow Soundcloud to play whatever it likes after you have been listening to your chosen track. Soundcloud keeps playing me Positive Energy and i kinda like it.
The Good Sports - Walking
I like to walk. The type of walking where you prepare by making yourself egg mayo sandwiches and you have a rough idea of where you are going to go but no idea where you are going to end up. I am an adventurer.
Bobby T. & the Slackes - See You When I Die
"Here’s a new one for ya" in the form of See You When I Die by Bobby T. & the Slackers.
Todays Hits - I Don’t Hate
This is today’s release from Today’s Hits, he is on a roll, as per usual. He is soundtracking my life and i don’t want this to end.
Fear Of Men - Outrun Me
For a relatively small town, Brighton produces more than its fair share of pretty outstanding bands and one of which is Fear Of Men.
Outrun Me is the B-side of the previously posted single Luna. It is released next month on a flexi disc (and accompanying zine) by the equally outstanding Art Is Hard, and it is followed a couple of weeks later by the band’s debut album Loom.
Dum Dum Girls - Too True To Be Good
If there’s one album I’ve had on repeat so far this year it is the latest release from the ever brilliant Dum Dum Girls. This week they played a show at SXSW festival and were joined on stage by no other than Debbie Harry. Now there’s a duet I wish I could have seen.
Too True is out now via Sub Pop.
Rodents - Do Nothing
Here is a quick blog post before i head to work. In 22 hours i will finish work and go to Sheffield Zine Fest and i like zines. Making slow progress on Issue 3 of our zine but it will look beautiful when it is finished (in the process of graffitiing it with all things that make me happy).
Trust Fund - No Surprise
Trust Fund has slept on my sofa (i am a friend to the stars).
Tashaki Miyaki - Cool Runnings
"I see a good thing coming…" I have an interview tomorrow, a good thing better be coming. I have my pink sparkly nail varnish on especially for the occassion.
Fat White Family - Yellow Woman
Yellow Woman is the b-side to the very soon to be released Touch The Leather. Here is Yellow Woman for some Sunday evening listening.
Part Time - I Belong To You
Last night i drank lots of rum and listened to I Belong To You.
