Some things to look out for……

I’ve been hiding away at a Lancashire match for the last four days and inevitably a lot of things have come in while i’ve been out getting frozen……so here’s a round up of stuff in no particular order……

Tara Jane O’Neil plays the Castle, Oldham Street, Manchester on June 9th – this is from her album “Where Shine New Lights” which is very good……

The Reads have a new album out – they were in my top 30 singles of 2013 with Galaxy Egg – the album is called “Lost At Sea” and comes out in June – the lead track is called “Spitting Feathers

The legendary BL’AST play Star and Garter, Manchester on 25th June and the similarly legendary POISON IDEA play the same venue on 12th August

Death To The Strange are releasing a final cut from their EP – the very moreish “Openshaw Blues”

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.
