Sorry for dropping off the radar for a while there, Beth has no net access and I've just been too tired to post. We discussed our end of year best of list last night, I'm not sure we're going to have one this year as there have only been two records I'd recommend everyone to buy and both will be all over everyone else's lists, which is hardly the point of our normal round-up now is it?
There are however a number of honorable mentions, one of whom is the acorn, whose glory hope mountain is a welcome relief from the credit crunch radio. Having fallen for them and their math-folk on Tin Fist, particularly their 'brokered heart', which we posted ages ago, the new album offers more clever and beautifully delicate songs in the same vein.
