Check out this gorgeous little acoustic number by a new lad on the block called Paul Thomas Saunders. Vocals. Hello!
We are playing him on Amazing Breakfast and this track is off his recent E.P 'Lilac & Wisteria' which was released on the 4th of July 2011.
My interview with Slow Club went out on Amazing Breakfast this morning (Friday 29 July). We discussed all things new album, new touring, pre-release nerves and that down at Secret Garden Party at the weekend. Had a right nice time with that Charles and Rebecca and here's what they lovely Charles and Rebecca had to say...
Alpines are a rad new songwriting duo, Catherine and Bob. Live, they now have a full band and they are gearing up to the release of their debut album, which they have worked on with Arcade Fire mixer and producer Craig Silvey. Hear all about it above and below...the video for the new single Cocoon. Like a next level Vidal Sassoon advert! Seriously lush locks...
I had a little chat with Joana and Ali from Joana and the Wolf down at Secret Garden Party festival in Huntingdon at the weekend. They take influence from the likes of PJ Harvey and I'd recommend the track Hide Me as a good stThe interview went out on Amazing Breakfast this morning but you can watch the video here:
The Kill Van Kulls are a pretty cool band from Manchester that I've played a few times on Amazing Radio Breakfast a few times. Worth checking out their videos. Firstly...let's start with some seriously humongous waves surfed in this one. Great tune too.
Cue art hunk in this 80s inspired pop behemoth!
This is the video for their latest single Lost and Found, out via KVK Records. You will find some experimental dance types throwing wondrous coloured power about the place. I like it. Check it out:
In today's music news podcast that I made we find out who are the current favourites to win the Mercury Prize. Nominees are announced next Tuesday. Roots Manuva returns with a new album, late Beatle George Harrison doc to air in Autumn and Eels' E discusses his meeting with Ringo Starr. Meanwhile James Blake is writing on the road.
It was out earlier this year but I remembered this track today and found the video immediately. Then listened to it about three times in the space of an hour. Still absolutely immense. Loving Jess Mills' work. Her debut album is due out at the beginning of 2012.
Watch the music video for 'Live For What I'd Die For' by Jess Mills below:

Back with another outlandish and splendid Track of the Week on my Amazing Radio Breakfast show.
The act is Stepdad. They are from Michigan and they are, let's face it, pretty hipster. I mean one has a superb bowl hair do, the other can pull off geek glasses and a neon hat and the beardy one looks almost futuristic regal (if that's a workable phrase) holding a wooden staff in Aztek prints and fur. The hipster thing...this is no bad thing. Hooray for Stepdad.
It looks as though they are going to come on the show soon as well and be Artist of the Week. Only one word for this video and that is "rad".
This is from back in 2001, performed at the Riverside Church. It was a first for me today. Never seen this and thought it was worth a posting as it's just so stunning. Anyone with Monday blues, this might shed a ray of light on your heavy hearts. It might on the other hand just make you feel more miserable. Remains to be seen. Enjoy!
Bring on Bestival I say.
