The Lonely Forest

Sooo… I find a new album. Sounds great. Deft pop hooks, great vocals, interesting twiddly bits. Thinking I must be very slow off the mark and these are the new flavour of the month, I check out all the hipster music sites.

Nothing. Zip. Nada. Nowt.

Then, belatedly, I check Last.fm and this fantastic pop band have just over 700 listeners. If ever there was a time to say WTF, this is it. That The Lonely Forest, who produced this week’s top track, should have so few listeners is unreasonable. Improbable. It won’t last – pop music is wonderfully, gloriously contagious. And The Lonely Forest are virulent popteria. Get into them now waaaaay before everyone else!

Billy Taylor Trio

And the best old track? Well, that was Billy Taylor’s ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.’ Just sublime. Music keeps you young! 🙂
