It’s been a bit of a folk day here, so you get Vashti Bunyan - Glow Worms.

The Rapture - House of Jealous Lovers this still makes me feel a little crazy even after all these years...more cowbell than Heidi!
:-*

I'd personally sneak Out Of The Races & On To The Tracks ahead of this one but it's still a fucking belter of a track!
Oh aye double belter.

Btw Mark check out Children of Leir if you don't know them i think they'll be your style.

Children Of Leir - Always the Same from the recent 100 only EP on Helena Hauff's Return To Disorder imprint.

and one from their last EP on her label; Children of Leir - Elixir

Good choice, gorgeous. I think it's probably perrty hard for younger readers toi get their head around a time when you could know something existed but not get to hear it. WAY back before the internet and you couldn't just go and buy this online (or file it), I had folk I didn't know from Adam come up to me in the street and thrust a C90 and a five pound note into my hands because they'd heard it on the astral plane that I owned a copy that they hoped I'd tape for them.

Oooh yeah, I'm liking that first one a lot.

A nice droney trifle topped with layers of what almost tastes like Black Angels/Mein & Loop.

Yum!

I'll check out their other stuff.

Took a trip down Memory (or what's left of it) Lane earlier today after chatting with an old friend about our early clubbing days & all the amazing nights we had totally off our chops! Heheheh!
Some of the tunes I was listening to back then hasn't aged well but other stuff still holds up pretty well.

I dug out an old favourite...

African Head Charge - Free Chant
African Head Charge - Dervish Chant

First Aid Kit - Nothing Has to Be True I'm am very much not down with modern country and I sometimes check out some of the OSG posts on worthy new stubble chinned ripped jeans country and just can't see the appeal but...I really have a soft spot for Aid Kit. People say they are inauthentic but I don't give a shit about that, only if they are good and this is IMO a stunning song that fairs strums my cynical old heartstrings with it's hints of Harvest, Marissa Nadler and Lana Del Rey. :-* Offset content in the old Mustang bass in the video.

Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus - I Carry the Sun They say this is their first single but I thought an EP was a single. Anyway...short, sweet and so welcome. Expect a refresh of the RAIJ thread once I give the TWO ( :w00t: ) new elpees a listen. Such an amazing unique and idiosyncratic band

Cloth - Sleep from Glasgow they remind me a of everything from Chromatics to Durutti Column to Young Marble Giants to XX to The Blue Nile to Tracey Thorn. I find the lead guitarists style quite pleasing with his uncommonly extensive use of harmonics.

Cloth - Felt they have this unangsty melancholy .

GLOK & C.A.R. - Shade In Me

March Violets - Grooving in Green

Angel Olsen - Sweet Dreams generally can't be bothered with her but I like this single with it's windswept Tarnation style.

It's been a while. To be honest I heard I'll be The Death of You and wasn't too sure (though I liked Chiaroscuro when it was out) but The Prophet made me think it might be a grower so i preordered it. i'm also in on the Modern Nature preorder which sounds really good and gives good sleeve too!

Image

Modern Nature - Flourish Nick if you are about I think the jazzy folk stylings of this might be your style..the Spirit of Eden dwells within!

It's been quite a quiet month, I'm almost turning into 50 quid man

Remember to get on Claypipe at 7.30-8.00 ish GMT on Friday if you are wanting a Jon Brooks Shapwick or How to Get to Spring Repress. Ridiculous me will be logging on for Shapwick at least even though i have two already and there's another three owned by the two eldest and lady boss. :fp:

I'm looking forward to the new Bibio I've just ordered, it's going back to more of a folk sound and rather lovesly as my youngest is wont to say.

Bibio - Sleep On The Wing as a massive fan of swallows and swifts I approve. Makes the heart just that little bit lighter.
