Another Bank Holiday! Does anyone know what this one is for? I know the last one was because a bunny sacrificed itself for the good of the people, but what about this one? Is it just to celebrate the start of May? Seems a bit over the top.


Primary Colours by The Horrors

Oh, it's very good isn't it? We finally got our copy - i.e. we brought it - and have spent the morning listening to it over and over again. Weirdly, whilst enjoying it's droning synths, guitar effects and Faris' monotonous vocals we were busy cleaning the skull of a the kitchen sink...using a toothbrush (an old one!). We checked online and this does indeed make us goths, which is nice. Truly one of the albums of 2009.


Shadows by Au Revoir Simone

First single from the stately Still Night, Still Light album, this is all rather lovely. At times these three young ladies can forget to pack an actual tune along with all the vintage keyboards and dresses, but this has a really sweet melody and the chorus is proper memorable and that.


I Feel Cream by Peaches
Braveface by Esser

If you've got some extra cash lying around - perhaps you stole it from your parents or a small child, or maybe you won some money on a scratchcard - then why not purchase one of these two albums, or even both. One is a filthy, gyrating sex-pest attracting electro-pop behemoth, whilst the other is a genre-splicing bundle of energy in musical form sung by an Essex lad with a big quiff. It's hard to know which is which, but we'll leave that to you to figure out.
