mp3: Golden Silvers – True Romance (True No9 Blues)

Sure there are a ridiculous number of faux 8os acts around at the moment but if half of them could write a tune like this one then we’d be onto a winner. Unfortunately most of them can’t live up to Golden Silvers and the song writing and (a little bit Morrissey,a little bit Albarn) delivery of front man Gwilym Gold. Shake your thang!

For Fans Of: New Order, Neon Neon, Blur, FrYars.

live: ICA, April 24th.

pre-order: True Romance (No9 Blues)  7″



mp3: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Young Adult Friction

This is an irresistible indie pop gem from New Yorks rising stars The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. It’s a guitar driven tale of young adults getting down to business in the library. Tut tut! Peggy’s sweet female vocal line of ‘Now that you feel’ offsets the track beautifully. It was a toss up between this and my favourite new song about incest, the fantastically titled – ‘This Love Is Fucking Right!’. The album is a gem, buy it, seriously.

For Fans Of: Belle & Sebastian + distortion, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Vivian Girls, The Manhattan Love Suicides.

live: May 15th/ June 9th / June 10th

buy: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart   CD LP DLoad

Pre-order: Young Adult Friction 7″



mp3: Bruce Springsteen – I’m On Fire (Cousin Cole’s Bad Desire Remix)

New York DJ Cousin Cole gives The Boss’ 1984 classic ‘I’m On Fire’ a dreamy electronic makeover. Pefect to sink back into the sofa with, even better sitting in the sun with a drink in hand. Cousin Cole is one half of Flagrant Fowl with fellow New York DJ Pocketknife. He cuts the music with so much class! Indeed.

For Fans Of: Bruce Springsteen, Air France, Moby.
