I like this song, it’s cute. It’s got that 90’s Everything But The Girl vibe to it. But to be honest the video is close to amazing. Who would have thought a goldfish could stir any sense of emotion! Check out here.

Sometimes the PR blurb I get in emails can get a bit over the top, but for a change I actually found the story behind this band pretty interesting. So here it is, word for word…
The White Arrows story begins with a blind boy. Singer Mickey Church was born seeing the world as an impressionistic smear. His vision was righted at age 11, but his imagination ran wild for the intervening years. Since he couldn’t make out those around him, he assumed they couldn’t see him either. He rode made-up horses and sung songs that didn’t exist. His memory of growing up in L.A. is confined to smells, sounds and swaths of fuzzy color. Mickey’s father, a student of African percussion, encouraged him and his little brother Henry to pick up instruments as kids, so they played what was around. With family back east, Mickey eventually left for NYU, and unexpectedly wound up with a degree in shamanistic ritual.

Sometimes you stumble across a song that stops you and makes you want to listen to it over and over. Compulsively. This happened to me with this song. I just haven’t heard anything like this in a while, so I really hope you like it as much as I have. Check out here.
Fresh new UK rap talent. I can’t stop listening to this, it’s so good! Check out here.
Regular visitors will know I have a weakness for guys with guitars. I am in total obsession with Jake Morley. There’s a fresh sound coming out of this guy, but there’s still a warm vibe in there too. Check out here.
Some cute new music from Barry Southgate.
