Music Diary #33 – 8th February 2012 & Aural Delights Radio Show

Mostly listening to new albums over the last few days…..

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Music Diary #28 – 30th January 2012

Well I got to the end of the first month nearly on an entry a day but last weeks gig organisation got the better of me so I’ve bowed to the inevitable and am going to do these when I can rather than when I should.

So in the last few days there has been music in from:

  • Boomin – a 3-piece pop/rock band from Wigan, who are currently recording their debut album which is scheduled for release in early summer this year. They sent me two songs and I was mightily impressed.
  • The Wonderful Sound the Cinema Organ – are a nine piece from Leeds who combine a great jazz sound with some strong songs. Highly recommended.
  • The Fiction – a three piece from Manchester (well Leigh if I am being geographically accurate)  who have an EP out in March called “The Greatest Hits” – powerful rock trio with a good melodic sound.
  • Rebellious Jukebox – reacquainting myself with the sound of this band who have a new single out soon – via the lovely Longevity lable – if you have not caught their “Slave to Lust” yet then I suggest you do yourself a favour. Any band that names itself after a track by The Fall is likely to get my attention anyway
