I went on holiday in the sun. Now I’m home.  And from the ether comes a playlist covering all the ground thereon. For your pleasure. Cast off the beach towel of silence and jump into the cooling water of spotify. Trunks not included. Have a listen now. HERE.

In other news BAT FOR LASHES has won Best Alternative Act at the UK Asian Music Awards! Which we are very pleased to hear //  BROKEN BELLS are being given plenty of flattering words. Here’s what the Times say / the Independent say /DiS say. But of course, make your own mind up about it. // And that is all. For now.
