I’m in very fine spirits today – we’ve just had The Duke and the King in 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!
