This has been the breakout band of the year. It is a group of Londoners; David Maclean (drummer and producer), Vincent Neff, (singer and guitarist), Jimmy Dixon, (bassist) and Tommy Grace (synth operator). David is the brother of John Maclean of The Beta Band. Funky, quirky, electronic, acoustic, bubbling, quixotic, this album is everything I want music to be. I love to be introduced to something new in music and these guys have done just that. Saw them in San Francisco as well and they were electric on stage and had the whole crowd dancing to their hypnotic beats. I have yet to tire of this album and since it's in the number one slot, it has been listened to incessantly all year. If you haven't listened to this album yet this year then hurry up and buy it already. It's on sale right now at Amazon for $5.00 here. I have given you ample listening opportunities below.
Thanks for stopping by. I listen to entirely too much music and love sharing music almost as much as I love listening to it. The purpose of this blog is to do just that and perhaps introduce you to bands you've never heard. If you happen to be one of those bands and do not like the fact that I have given a sample of your music in an effort to promote your band, please email me and I will gladly remove the link.
