LIST 86 - 06/07/12

Hello there,

By the time this gets uploaded, your List editor and compiler will be on his way down to Butterley for a long weekend of indiepop, ale, steam trains and - judged by the forecast - trenchfoot.  No doubt in mind, though, that Indietracks will be worth putting up with a bit of precipitation, and it sounds as if a lot of other outdoor events across the British isles just now are faring much worse.

Be that all as it may.  Here's the first general mish-mash List of this season - still quite 2011-heavy (that's just down to the big backlog of quality stuff I've got to upload from last year, I'm afraid), but at the same time also including my front-runner for Single of the Year 2012.  Yes, that'll be your single right there, Elizabeth... Chuffed to bits, incidentally, to learn that the sophomore Allo Darlin' album was recorded in Mossley, barely what, five miles away from where I was born and raised?  Coo, come to the Saddleworth/Tameside border - it's where the indiepop is at, folks. 

...And finding out that the recording studio is run by the former frontwoman of the short-lived but absolutely glorious mid-1990s Manc grrrrlpunk act Thrush Puppies just finished me off...
