I'm finally home to stay after 11 weeks away and despite the fact that I have over 11000 songs on my computer I feel the need for new music so I thought we could play a game. I'll tell you what I'm listening to and you share what you are listening to and maybe we'll both benefit. Just play the game!
Vashti Bunyan - British folk singer that brings out a new album every 35 years, next album is due out in 2040. Until then you can enjoy two albums, the lyrics may be a little sickly sweet but it doesn't seem to matter when her voice is so hauntingly beautiful.
The Good, The Bad, And The Queen - Damon Albarn of Blur & the Gorillaz must be the hardest working man in the industry.
Jo Mango - Seen her live in Glasgow once, aching to go back see her again if only to listen to My Lung.
The Hedrons - Also from Glasgow, all female rock band.
Cansei De Ser Sexy - Gotta love a band with a name that translates to English as Tired Of Being Sexy. Anyway its a Brazilian electro pop band and its rumoured that they are going to move from Sao Paulo to Glasgow to enable them to crack the European market. Now I love Glasgow and Glasgow does have a good music scene but if I were Brazilian I think I would prefer to spend my days on warm Brazilian beaches, but what do I know....
The Fratellis - I'm sure I've mentioned them before, but i'm still listening so I'm not apologising for mentioning them again.
Shitdisco - Weird name but it works.
Uffie - Looks a little bit like Kate Moss, sounds a little like Peaches if she did electro bubblegum pop.
Beirut - Strange song titles that could sound a little pretentious if the music didn't work so well.
Willy Mason - Can't help playing Oxygen and All You Can Do over and over again. He's like a modern day Bob Dylan with a better singing voice.
Jack Penate - Looks like he belongs to the 50s era but has a more modern sound.
New Young Pony Club - Thanks to the Intel advert I keep playing this band.
Anyway it's late, I've played the game now its your turn.
I was going to add more like The Hazey Janes, The Cinematics, The Draymin, Mr Hudson & The Library, & The Maccabees but that would have made it an odd number of bands so I got lazy and didn't.
