Can't say I've been overly enamoured with the 'Replace the OD victim with a new singer' lark thats been going on. Black Gives Way To Blue had a few moments, but was by no means anywhere near classic AiC. The Blind Melon comeback had about one song that piqued my interest, less said about Sublime with Rome the better.

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
Debut album from long-touring band Arcane Roots is streaming and it is epic.

Fans of hard alt rock, math rock, ridiculous vocal ranges, etc. will love this. Give it a go.

I have been listening to Gurrumul. The most beautiful, pure sounding thing ever. I can't stop.
From the BBC.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Going to Dot 2 Dot festival tomorrow, went last year and saw a lot of great bands - haven't had time to listen to much of the line up this year so haven't go much idea of who to check out...any ideas?

New Ceremony, No Rest probably the most famous. The 1975 are getting some notoriety at the moment; Wolf Alice are a decent little indie outfit. Other than that not too sure but seems like a good day out, loads of stuff playing.
Unfortunately I will be trying to avoid the Ritz as it will be full of kids and the drinks prices are outrageous.
Definitely got Wolf Alice on my list, also want to see Little Green Cars, maybe London Grammar and Chapel Club also on the list. Half the fun of it is stumbling on bands you've never heard of that turn out to be really good, last year I saw Admiral Fallow there and they are one of my favourite bands now.
That lineup for The Ritz looks pretty damn good to me. Never heard of Ady Suleiman but the others would all be good to see.
Also appreciate the Admiral Fallow love. Saw them in a bar in Cardiff after a girl introduced me to them in freshers last year. Second album not as good IMHO.
Just got my hands on The National's new album. Exciting times.
