They've developed into a pretty solid outfit in my opinion. The singles 'C'Est La Vie' and 'I Wanna Get Lost With You' led me to this one and there are other solid tracks like 'White Lies', 'Song For The Summer' and 'My Hero' (not the Foo Fighters' song) here too.

Perhaps their singles aren't quite as strong as in their earlier hit making days, but the albums are pretty consistent these days and they seem confident in their position and fanbase now I think.

Never seen them live and perhaps I should sometime.

It upsets me that you clarified that My Hero was not the Foo Fighters song by offering no such clarity on C'est La Vie. Imagine my disappointment when I searched for the track only to discover it wasn't a cover of the glorious B*Witched song

Sorry Pete. I need a 'like' button for your reply. Afraid it's not a Robbie Robertson cover, or UB40 either :wink:

Yes, sorry. Memory lapse. Also not Chuck Berry (You Never Can Tell) or Shania Twain too

Gonna bump this one.

Beach Slang - The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us.

A completely fantastic LP - Certainly in my top 3 of the year. Haven't taken it off the turntable since my pre-order arrived.

Listen to it. Love it.

Listening to the new Rod Stewart, 'Another Country'.

Not quite as good as 'Time', but strong throughout again. A Tragedy in my mind that he spent SO long on the Great American Songbook and previously rock covers albums, when he had the ability to write good strong songs the whole time, as he's now showing.

Should've posted this one a few weeks ago too:

'Cradle To The Grave' by Squeeze is pretty good. Enjoying the single 'Lazy Days', the title track and 'Open' best I think, but nothing I can say I really dislike on it.

Their 1st new album for many years, although only Difford and Tilbrook of the original band remain. The tie in with the BBC series of the same named inspired by Danny Baker's memoirs may garnish a few extra sales and I enjoyed the opening night of their Autumn tour too.

I appreciate I'm probably preaching to the converted on this forum, but the new Will Varley album really is insanely good. I've listened to literally nothing else all week, something which hasn't happened since . . . well, PSFNP! Hard to single out any one track as they're all so impressive, but the reworked version of Seize The Night shows just how far Will's singing and arrangement have come in recent years. And I'm currently being haunted by The Endlessness and the Space Between, having listened to it on a rainy drive home through the middle of nowhere - brilliantly atmospheric.

If you don't already have it in anticipation of this month's FT support dates, go and get it. Right now. Go!
