Yo La Tengo - Avalon Or Someone Very Similar

This is a beautiful song off the latest album - Popular Songs which is the best thing they have done in years.

The National - The Runaway

Having followed The National since their first album I was surprised to find I didn't particularly enjoy Boxer. The songs lacked the passion that Alligator did. They're still one of the best live bands I have ever seen.

This shows a lot of promise for the new album. I just wish they'd drop those horns as I think the same sound ruined Fake Empire!

65 Days Of Static - Drove through ghosts to get here

Saw these at Leeds Festival 09 and they were awesome. If you like Explosion in the Sky then you will love these.

Teenage Fanclub return !!

Teenage Fanclub - Baby Lee

New album due Jan 2010.

Festive 50 2007

Dandelion radio (a station run by John Peel enthusiasts) have taken over the Festive 50.

I've been listening to this radio station this evening and it is fantastic. Peel would be proud. It's a legal radio show too.

Listen to dandelion radio here.

If you can't wait for the result then the full Festive 50 2007 list can be found here.
