These lines on my face betray me
It would be a statement and a half to say that much has changed in the months and years (!) that have been and gone since I last stalked and skulked this strange land, but, musically, this leopard has not changed his spots that much. Oh no. I mean, if it's twee indie-pop then I'll still dance in a rather awkward but enthusiastic manner come your private revolution. In the general spirit of handclaps, interesting scarfs and looking a bit bashful, two albums that have served me very well this year have come from the sweet soul soldiers known as Allo Darlin' and Math and Physics Club. If you perhaps missed out on either of these Long Players then do pick them up, you will not be disappointed and be all WTF? or FML. Each of these albums is, I promise you, approximately 143% better than this offering from a certain band that most of us know and love, no messing.
Allo Darlin' - 'The Polaroid Song' (4.14)
Math and Physics Club - 'We're so DIY!' (2.24)
So, the big news is this - Allo Darlin' and Math and Physics Club are playing at the Rendezvous in Seattle, WA (weep!) on October 29th. It's only $9 entry - so, likesay, GO! You can buy the Allo Darlin' album from here or buy the Math and Physics album from here.
PS, For bonus points, can you spot our beloved JC in the above picture? I assure you he is in it!
