  3. I adore Beth Porters work, either in this guise or as a member of the Bookshop Band, every thing about it is so close to perfection.
    I also really love Super Best Friends Club’s track – I’ve already listened about 15 times (I feel it could be even more amazing if the middle ‘its simple – its complicated’ section could have a minute trimmed out of it from about 2:14′ – apologies – just my opinion and this is probably just my own preference for shorter more succinct tracks – it is absolutely wonderful regardless!!! – please just ignore me)
    Have a great weekend.

    BETH PORTER+AVAILABLES – Willow
    THEGLENDALEFAMILY – 90’s Times
    HVMAN – Same Mistakes
    LOW CHIMES – Sleepwalking

  5. :)!

    ANDREAS S JENSEN – Trust Is My Anchor
    FETHERSTONE – All You Need To Be
    THEGLENDALEFAMILY – 90’s Times
    MACCA TAYLOR – Birdsong
    THE WILD THINGS – FIA

    My Faves this week are Fetherstone – such mmmh-vocals, clear, accentuated, brilliant and so, so vivid. Reminded me of a Berlin-born Singer, Roxanne de Bastion, whose vocals are of similar clearness. She also presented the lyrics too, which are of importance to me as non-native speaker and being more writer than composer.

    Further Macca Taylor’s Birdsong – here as well the lyrics presented and it was easy to follow while listening, experiencing a subtile match of smooth vocals and, concerning the message, somehow rough lyrics … most creative, convinced (me).

    Then: The Wild Things with F.I.A – like, like like :) different, fresh, kept my (grey) head and feet moving.

    The Glendalefamily – hey – poetry! :) if the author considers audience beyond Great Brexitians he might kindly add the lyrics to be read. :)

  6. LF – Bees
    LOW CHIMES – Sleepwalking
    THE NATURALS – Billy
    OTIS SIMPSON – Army
    ZARBOSA – Till the End

  7. Here’s my 5:

  10. Rods

    FETHERSTONE – All You Need To Be – Strong voice.
    IVOR GAME – Water and Wine – reminiscent of Keanes early song writing and delivery before they were signed
    JOUSKA – Nature – Started with overtones of Lemon Jelly and ended up somewhere completely different.
    LOW CHIMES – Sleepwalking
    PAINT – Strange Effect

  11. Chris Bye

    Love also to CRAIG ELLIOTT and RHAIN. SUPER BEST FRIENDS CLUB would have been on, were it not for the unnecessary Alt J impression at the start. Awesome rest-of-song though. Admittedly ZARBOSA needs re-recording but it is a lovely piece of work.
