Back with the best music!

All good things come to an end. My holidays are over, and despite going back to work, the neverending heatwave in Spain, our corrupted politicians and the despicable Republicans on the American campaign, and the unacceptable Pussy Riot imprisonment in Russia (what a dictatorial regime) are enough to depress everyone, but at least not today. We still have many songs on the agenda to enjoy.

My beloved Beth Orton is showing us bits of her new album, "Sugaring Season", out in October 2nd. Hear her below, playing three tunes "Dawn Chorus", "Candles", and "Poison Tree" plus personal favourite "Sweetest Decline" on acoustic, stripped down versions. Magic.

I'm pretty sure you want more, so here's "Magpie", gorgeous first song of the album (you can download it too). Can't wait for the record!

I already told you to keep an eye on the Swedish band Alpaca Sports. Here are two superb recent tunes to prove it, "She'll Come Back for Indian Summer" and the irresistible "I Was Running", new single to be released at the end of August. Fantastic indie-pop, among the best of the year so far!

And another blog discovery to end the post. Post-punk/shoegaze band Fountains latest single is "Easily Led" and is spectacular. Do this guys now they have penned an instant classic? Please have a listen! Review coming shortly!

  1. I'm loving the Alpaca Sports and Fountains. I hadn't heard Fountains yet, so thanks for that.
