Is this on a new compilation? We heard it randomly in Virgin in the week and we've always been suckers for a good list song
Still fantastic slab of Jimmy Webb Northern Soul. Did Victoria Bergsman really direct the Lloyd I'm Ready... video?
Never knowingly minimal, the Brighton dreamers borrow sped up Teenage Fanclub melodies, Bernard Hermann strings and a horn section
A week too late for Tim Kasher Top Of The Pops confusion 'jokes', old style emo finds skronk sax, chopped up guitar and something in parts not a million miles from Neutral Milk Hotel's Holland 1945
He'd be no good in a spelling bee
Still a distinct inability round here to get past the Hong Kong-born chanteuse-with-cyanide. There may be more on this in the near future
Yes, of course it's coming back out. Being put back on duty, as we might topically have it

Something to do with hip-hop rhythms, it seems
Oh, stop making corking summer singles, everyone! Mandolin-led wistfulness a go go as the Delaware loads-piece finally fulfil their promise, and that of a number of other bands while they're about it
Doesn't look like it's going to happen for them now, more fool everyone, but then songs this knowingly winsome and yet completely unashamed of it barely deserve The Automatic's audience
Still sounds like nothing else, at times least of all itself
The album's leaked! And it's wonderful, as longtime readers will have guessed of our longtime appreciation for the Cardiff-based (another one!) art school discordant oddball post-post-punk. August 28th. Make a note
