Cats On Fire

Tonight’s top new song was Cats On Fire’s ‘Higher Grounds.’ Part of the new wave of Scandi superindiepop, Cats On Fire make effortless, breezy pop music. It just rolls into your life and into your heart. Plus, their guitarist Ville is a pretty good dancer when you stick Jonathan Richman on. 🙂 Again, if you fancy a listen yourself, please click here.

Tennille & Captain
What else can the best old track be but Captain & Tennille’s ‘Love Will Keep Us Together?’ Just when you think it’s over, they throw that key change in! Ace!

First Front Cover!

SOS Live

If you buy this month’s Sound On Sound magazine (and, if you’re a techy musician, you should), then you’ll get a copy of the SOS Live supplement. And on the cover is a pic I took of Dead By Dawn. It’s actually this pic.

I’m extremely chuffed to get my first magazine front cover. Plus there’s another pic of mine inside the mag too. Not bad as I only bought my first DSLR just over two years ago!

I owe it all to my Canon 10D. And the impeccable taste of the SOS editorial staff, of course. 🙂
