Transit Transit

Not only the name of the Autolux album but a form of transit took me to this years Indietracks festival, yep it was almost Thomas the Tank isn’t it?!

Indietracks has to be the twee-est festival i’ve ever been to, everyone was good spirited and the surrounds were very cute, but there needed to be a bit more going on to keep me entertained if i’m brutally honest.  There were some massive highlights in the name of :

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart , Allo Darlin’, The Tender Trap, This Many Boyfriends & Slow Club

Both the Pains and Slow Clubs new material sounding amazing.. i must say!

This week heralded in my view three great releases by Best Coast, Autolux and Arcade Fire..  they’re that good they deserve a taster of each on the blog..

Autolux:

Arcade Fire

Best Coast

A quick radio update.. www.shellzenner.com is now online, although if you’re reading this I guess you may have already found it!

It’s listen again time too, get on the Male Bonding interview quickly as it will be removed on sunday..

Male Bonding:

First Aid Kit:

School of Seven Bells:

Blind Atlas:

I had a Wigan road trip last week and fortunately i managed to maintain a clean car in Leigh unlike a fellow co-hort who gained a pizza slice to the windscreen, but it was worth the trip.. for the stunning intensity that is Exit Calm.. shame a few of the drunk crowd members insisted in shouting (yes not just talking) over their music..

Now for the exciting bit.. things i’ve been listening to:

Savoir Adore – wacky but so catchy i can’t tune my ears out..

Everything Everything’s debut lp Man Alive is what i expected and so much more..

The Vaselines return..

Coming up on the next two shows, The Hundred in the Hands join me on sundays show and Salfords White Stripes/Black Keys influenced duo The Black Knights on thursday their album is a real statement and joy to behold..

So don’t forget to tune in!
