We have radio 1 playing in the stockroom in work on a daily basis. Recently, I've been feeling increasingly grimmed out by the lack of good new music out there. It's been a LONG time since I've heard a new band that I adore. I've been listening to old faithfuls on my ipod but I'm desperately in need of something new to lift me out of my music funk.
That was, UNTIL NOW! I know they're not a new band but The new Maps & Atlases album, Beware and Be Grateful, comes out next week but you can stream it right over here until then (Vampires is a catchy number to get you dancing around like a lunatic) and all I can say is, I'm hooked! LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
It's kind of sad that great bands like this don't really get the recognition they deserve, and instead, songs like this debut in at number one! (can someone please explain to me how this happened?!)
Anyway, I've been a little absent of late on the blogging front as Skrinkladoo is having a major make-over so I'm trying to hold off until it's done and dusted (any day now!)
Keep checking back for my next post on my goings on in NEW YORK CITY (my real home) and if you have heard any great bands recently I'd love to hear them
