September Girls (again!)
Magic multiplies when it comes into contact with vinyl so I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of some September Girls vinyl after enjoying them so much on tape and cd-r. Both are fine formats, of course, but somehow neither has vinyl's mysterious power to multiply. "Green Eyed" b/w "Danny Wood" is nearly here - it's out on 22nd October - and it's as bold and dramatic as it is pretty. With a melody of pure end of summer sadness swept along by a powerful fuzz undertow it's the kind of song you don't tell people about so much as evangelise about - really, I'm only 3 plays away from having a sandwich board made, booking a week off work and parading up and down Argyle Street to make the people of Glasgow sit up and take notice of September Girls. It also just happens to be book-ended by just about the most resplendent guitar nugget I've heard in 2012; just too much. The accompanying video is worth a spin, too:
Almost makes you nostalgic for pre-smoking ban gigs. And those sections with the overlaid faces, Loop and Spacemen 3 woulda walked over hot coals for visuals that cool.
