Rob St.John

Recorded in a chirch in Edinburgh, Rob St. John (I like a man with punctuation in his surname) follows nicely on from our previous Paul Quinn post. Which is high praise indeed when you think about it.
This comes from the Like Alchemy EP, in which harmoniums, saws and guitars creak and groan into a musical balm and is simply the best and most surprising thing I've heard in ages. Rob is playing in Edinburgh(see the MySpace link) so get out an see him if you get the chance.

Jay Jay Pistolet - Oh Caroline

Just a quick post, here's a little song that came my way today. Nothing fancy, no tricky time signatures or anything that would have been out of place in the last 50 years of popular music, but just right for a soothing end to the week.
