Next is a song by Alessi's Ark, this is from the album Time Travel, the song is called Wire and is a lovely bit of folk tinged pop:
The Leisure Society are a favourite band of ours and have a new album out called Into The Murky Water (with an ace cover on the vinyl release featuring a cutout of a diver), this isn't a track from the album but is the b-side to the current single, it's a cover of The Telescopes song Flying:
Next is probably our favourite record of the year, Birds by Torn Sail. This stunning Claremont 56 release was played by Moonboots as an exclusive when he guested on our show earlier this year. It starts off very reminiscent of The Byrds or a David Crosby track.
I first heard Balearic Mike play this at Stretch Disco and instantly wanted to know what it was. Imagine Washed Out crossed with Sly Mongooses: Snakes and Ladders and you're there! LA Duo Poolside's combination of catchy chorus, Pianos and acid squelches over a chugging disco baseline = Summer anthem alert.
