Stan says: #Wednesday. We’ve been as excited as ever to revisit some of Peter Gabriel’s back catalogue and that incredible voice (still one of our favourites) via his ‘New Blood’ project this week. It’s also been a great relief to see that Mandy Moore persuaded her husband to sit down and write some decent songs before releasing another record (if only she could work the same trick on Prince). Plenty more music buzzing away in our brains of late but the new Megafaun album is proving one of the most repeatable listens. And this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact they they used to be in a band with Justin Vernon in his pre Bon Iver days. Despite being the first single lifted from the album, the Beta Band meets TV On The Radio-isms of ‘These Words’ are probably not the best introduction to the sound of the record as a whole, but if you like a bit of Alt Country + Folk Gospel + Prog with your breakfast cereal then it’s well worth investigating the new Megafaun release further if you haven’t already done so.

Out now on Lefse Records via Bandcamp here
Stan says: #Friday. Despite presaging the end of summer in our last post the current weather in London Town is reigniting some small hope that perhaps the Hawaiian’s don’t need to be mothballed quite yet after all. The original version of this tune was always too short for our liking but the Houses remix more than makes up for it. Stoke Newington sun terraces here we come.

Stan says: #Wednesday. Enjoying this remix of the B-Side to forthcoming single ‘A Mountain We Love’ this morning. Made us want to dust off our copy of ‘Uh Oh’ by David Byrne. Soon to play live at one of our favourite North London venues The Lexington on the 31 August as well. More info on Theme Park here

Stan says: #Wednesday. PC thinks the Bon Iver record is one of the best he has heard in AGES. Stan has only just fully digested but is coming around despite initial misgivings.
1. Have Justin Vernon and TVOTR’s Tunde Adebimpe ever been seen in the same room together?
2. How much did Bruce Hornsby and Steve Windwood get paid for performing session duties on Beth/Rest?
