three videos to start your day with
I chanced across the first because Tamsin Chapman had linked me to six great new femme-pop bands and I was having a look around on YouTube. This, I cannot resist – The Carpenters meet Ramones via our very own Shonen Knife.
I’ll write a post around Tamsin’s recommendations later. Here’s one of them, for now.
As far as the second video goes, as Joseph Kyle puts it, ” Is this one of those instances where words simply fail?”
The “ow-ow” at 0.42 is out of this world.
And, on an entirely different tack, here’s the debut single on trakMARX Records. A wonderful slice of social commentary. Beautiful singing and beats and horns and use of that slime David Cameron’s voice. Doesn’t make me yearn to be back on the streets of Britain necessarily, but it does make me yearn to be back among the people of Britain.
