I’m in very fine spirits today – we’ve just had The Duke and the Kingin for a session and they blew me away.Â I say we becauseÂ I did the organising, tea making, hugging and grinning and Alb did the nob twiddling – playing to our respective strengths (Alb don’t edit this bit – it’s serious and true).
Anyway, the hairs on the back of my neck are still standing on end! They’re now on the way to Leeds for tonight’s gig and Alb’s busy recording another musical gem with HannahÂ Lou and Trevor Moss.Â La vie est belle.
Tonight’s show’s already been lovingly prepared for youÂ - because I’m off to tap my feet, nod my head and swoon over our session guests. So I can reveal tonight’s tunes (Wed 21st):
Two Door Cinema Club – Something good can work New Young Pony Club – Lost a girl Cate Le Bon – Shoeing the bones Owen Pallett – Lewis Takes Off His Shirt Royal Bangs – War Bells Yeasayer – O.N.E. Stars and Sons – If it’s good for me Bonobo – The Keeper ft. Andreya Triana Emika – Double Edge Rex – My Baby Left Me The Duke and the King – Still Remember Love MGMT – Flash Delerium Hot Chip – One Life Stand She and Him – In the sun Bonobo – We could forever
All summery – all great. Will keep you posted re: forthcoming session guests so don’t go away.
On next week’s showÂ - already in the pipeline -Â I’ve got details of a fab competition for local bands to bag themselvesÂ a spot at Moor Music Festival plus a preview of Live at Leeds. Oh, Alb and I are working on a Rough Beats Festival preview in early May. Huza!
