Mostly listening to new albums over the last few days…..
- Lot of noise being made in some quarters about the Django Django album – was not that impressed, reminded me of dodgy West Coast stuff from the 1960s.
- The “Suburban Sunshine” album by Et Tu Brucé is interesting. It is released on 27th February. The quirky, quaint Englishness of it is quite appealing – although I am not completely sold on it as yet. Probably will require several listens to understand what it is all about.
- The Valery Trails purports to be akin to The Go-Betweens – not quite, but their album”Ghosts and Gravity” is good enough to stand on its own without reference to other stuff.
