Washed Out – Eyes Be Closed

Christ, the blogosphere hasn’t half gone moist for this track, and this could well be all I listen to this summer. I mean, fuckin’ hell if it is, would that really be all that bad?

Summer Camp – Veronica Sawyer

I’ve been wanting to write summat about Summer Camp for ages, but like most things I simply had better things to do….

Anyway as I said it’s been a while in gestation, and while I was intrigued by the concept, I must admit I hadn’t really given them much of a listen. I have now, and I’m very much amored (is that a word?).

So the Young EP is the fruits of Indie power couple (if that’s not a contradiction) Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey, it’s a stripped down sparse yet warm and rich collection of odes to the 1980’s films of John Hughes. It kind of reminds me of The XX, but I think that’s just because I’ve been listening to that record all day, and a little bit like Washed Out, so yeah for fans of those.

Enamoured!! That’s what I meant.

Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work (The Twelves Remix)

Do I like Two Door Cinema Club? It’s funny, my mate sent them to me ages ago, and I dismissed them out of hand, yet lately I’ve heard their tune on the radio, done a little Shazam magic and then been surprised at the result.

So yeah it would then appear that I do like Two Door Cinema Club. For now anyway. With regards this tune, I haven’t bothered looking for the original, so I’m just basing this whole piece on what is coming out of my speakers at THIS MOMENT.
I can see why they’ve been signed, what with the success Friendly Fires have had in the last year, Friendly Fires who were one of my festival highlights last year, I should point out. Could 2DCC do the same? On the strength of this, and the few other little titbits I’ve heard, I’d say it’s highly likely. Oh and they are from N’orn I’ron, so I already have a bit of an affinity to them.
The lucky bastards.

This track features on the rather splendid Kitsuné Maison 9 – The Petit Bateau edition compilation which features Washed Out (who rock), Hurts (also rock), Monarchy (rock more) and Silver Columns (rock less so). It’s an aural delight.
