This Many Boyfriends - Starling

Released as part of a fanzine by the Leeds tykes on the 20th, a straight-ish excitable jangle and direct-ish tales of "ornithology and love", replete with a heroic dash to the finish. Neither anthemic or shambling, merely grazing near the point at which they intersect.

They have dates, largely as support to bands with a habit of filling rooms with acolytes in their varying ways:

23rd Manchester Deaf Institute *
24th Sheffield Queens Social Club *
25th London 100 Club #
26th Leeds Brudenell Social *
28th London ULU +
29th Cardiff Buffalo *
1st Edinburgh Liquid Room +
2nd Brighton Concorde 2 +
3rd Leeds Met Uni +

* supporting Allo Darlin' - the Sheffield date has Standard Fare too, and has been upgraded
# London Popfest, with Allo Darlin', Comet Gain, Ace Bushy Striptease and others
+ supporting the Cribs, as are Spectrals

Oh, and we didn't tell you about Leicester Indiepop Alldayer, did we? This is our contribution to the epidemic of popshow spectaculars, Saturday 24th March at Firebug, headlined by Tender Trap (Amelia Fletcher's current residence, for the uninitiated) and also featuring the aforementioned TMBs, MJ Hibbett & the Validators, Just Handshakes (We're British), Anguish Sandwich, The Sweet Nothings, August Actually and the Sunbathers. Add yourself to the Facebook event and buy a ticket.
