don't make no secret about their love for lo-fi tape recordings. Founder Jack Sharp actually used his grandpa's Grundig tape machine from the 60's for the first recordings. For their debut on Jagjaguwar the British foursome amped their sound a bit but are still keeping it distinctively untidy.
«Tidings» was released in February 2010 on Jagjaguwar.
I spent a good few weeks at school listening to «Yo! Bum Rush the Show» on my cassette walkman and ignoring all my friends.
There's loads of great Beatles songs but in my opinion they're usually performed better by other people. Richie Havens for instance.
Incredibly loud German rock 45 with HUGE drums and a nice bit of bassoon!
I fucking hate that band. I don't feel depressed when I listen to beautiful sad music. It's an enjoyable pain. Like poking at a bruise or taking a splinter out.
It took me a while to find "Pasa El Tran". But when it arrived the wrong record was in the sleeve. Damnit! I love that song. It's got these really nice harmonies and it just chugs along like... well, like a train.
To tell the truth I was already in love but if I wasn't this would have clinched it.
«Till a casket from the witchwood, bears my body to the ground».
Two different incredible summers that I can't decide between.
If we're talking actual vinyl. I'd bought loads of AC/DC tapes before then, and I did have a Wombles LP but I think my mum got me that.
Because I played it almost continuously last Christmas. Everytime I play it I'm in those woods. It's really clever without sounding like it's trying to be really clever.
I wish I could sing it too. This song almost pulls my heart out of my throat every single time I hear it.
