For The Record: January 2010

. Wednesday, January 27

January has been a fairly good month all in all. I've started up interviewing bands again, spending some quality time with Alexis Hot Chip, 4/7ths of Los Campesinos, Jack from These New Puritans, Delphic and Vivian Girls too. Gigs have been thin on the ground but that's partly due to my poverty.

In terms of album there have been a host of great releases chiefly 'Hidden' by These New Puritans. An uncomprimising and massively adventurous record it will no doubt be a mainstay throughout the year and hopefully elevate the band to a higher pantheon, something they richly deserve.

Albums of the Month: January 2010

Vampire Weekend - 'Contra'
Surfer Blood - 'Astro Coast'
These New Puritans - 'Hidden' (Album of the month)
Charlotte Gainsbourg - 'IRM'
Chew Lips - 'Unicorn'

Other notable relases: Beach House, FourTet, First Aid Kit, Delphic.

To download the best of January's MP3's visit the link to the left of this post. There you will find stuff by Dum Dum Girls, Everything Everything, Summer Camp, Memory Tapes, SBTRKT and much more.

I've had a quiet 2010 on the gigs front so far as well. Half because of the money situation, half because the website I was writing for closed down at the beginning of the year.
