Soundtracking #2 – The Charlatans

Rewind and replay.

A quoted lyric sent me off on an audio perambulation of rediscovery and we ended up here.

The Charlatans – who I should have listened to as a teenager. Instead they appeared on playlists almost a decade after they should have. Better late than never…

Loving the Brit pop summer jangle of guitars and a slightly slurred approach to vocals.

Very nice indeed.

Soundtracking #1 – Tender Prey

Today I’m mostly treating my ears to the talents of Laura Byron. Otherwise known as Tender Prey (is that a Nick Cave reference methinks?), she creates a self-described sleaze blues sound that  I quite like…Actually, I like it a lot, it sounds dirty and reminiscent of very lazy alcoholic days in hot, dusty places (except she’s from Cardiff).

Best enjoyed with a tequila and a cold beer chaser.
