After having spent several tiring hours in TWO libraries today, my brain is severely damaged for the next 24 hours. Attention spam? 5min or less. Shocking how much four weeks of laziness can do to oneself.
However, there's a positive site to my incapability of intaking anymore slighty narcissistic essay material written by Mr. Simon F****. I've got a 'legitimate' excuse to go to the Masque on Thursday (tomorrow) night and watch the Newcastle-rockers
After their first two releases 'Rivers and Rainbows' (b-side 'Silver') and 'Sunshine People' in March 2009, the band has now allocated a free download link to their latest single 'Black & White' from the new EP 'Kiss The Sun' (out 1st March 2010)- a pretty laid back, folky, slowhand tune with smooth organ and Big-Beat-esque drum arrangements.
Quite an elusive sound. At first sight it sets one back in a 1970s-jazzy, tranquille atmosphere, but during the bridge, just before the last chorus, one gets pulled back into today's electro-lined zeitgeist with accurately timed, syncopated rhythms and synthesised background effects.
I couldn't word any differently other than: 'Get down with your mates, grab a pint & simply have a good night!' Proficient support is delivered by one of our all-time favourites, The Idles.
