Beach House – Norway

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the folk-pop revival. If it’d happened ten years ago, I might have been trendy at the right time. Oh well.


Fyfe Dangerfield – She Needs Me

I remember seeing Fyfe live a few years back, when the Guillemots were just starting out, before the BBC were all over them. It was in a tiny room in Nottingham, one of those murky, sticky-floored indie venues, full of guys and girls in converse, big beads and fancy hats, and the Guillemots were just a phenomenal bunch of musicians. Fyfe seemed one of the most expressive artists I’d ever seen, a passionate multi-instrumentalist. This video seems pretty mild and mainstream by his former standards, but it could be a good move for his career. Talented chap, anyway.


Delphic – Doubt

Via the medium of Jools Holland, here are an interesting new synth brigade from the industrial north, but they’ve made it onto all the 2010 tip-lists, so I hope they don’t disappear into obscurity.
