Jake Bugg: Manchester Academy 14/02/13

This week I spent Valentines Day with my lovely girlfriend at the Manchester Academy, watching Jake Bugg.
I was unsure of what to expect. Having only been on the scene for what is really quite a short time, would Jake Bugg be able to transcend his sound to the full capacity of 2350 people. In short, yes he can. We walked away in awe of his undeniable talent, his songs sounding better in person than they do on the record. Highlights of the night were 'Two Fingers' 'Lightning Bolt' 'Trouble Town' and my favourite 'Seen it all'. Actually forget that, listening to his music as I write this I am reminded of how good each song actually was.
If you get the chance, make sure you go see him. You will not regret it.

Beach Fossils Stream Album


Earlier this month I wrote about some releases from Beach Fossils.  Yesterday the band have decided to stream their new album ahead of its release on February 18th.

Streaming the album online before its even available is a confident move, and rightfully so. Listening to 'Clash The Truth' it is easy to put your headphones on and go from track one to fourteen without their being any duff moments or songs you skip. In an age where increasingly the single is king, albums like this are refreshing.
If you are a fan of bands like 'The Drums' then you should be all over this. Its a great album.
Can't wait till the 18th when I buy and listen to it all over again, and again.

It's been nearly a week since I last posted anything, or have been on the Internet for that matter. Feels like longer though.
Anyway, here is some music I like. Hope you like it too.



 Many thanks to Fake DIY for shedding the light on these tracks.

Today, Perfect Mixtape favourites CHVRCHES, have unveiled their new single 'Recover'.
The track is everything and more that I have come to expect of this Glaswegian trio. It remains true to their synth pop sound, yet manages to be perhaps more radio friendly than their other tracks. This of course can only be a good thing as this band truly deserve all the airplay they can get, and more and more people should have the opportunity to hear their amazing sound.
I can't wait to see them perform live later this month.
