Laura Marling

A friend of mine suggested I listen to the new Mystery Jets album, so I checked out the single ‘Young Love’. It’s fun Britpop, but it didn’t really hit me until Laura Marling started singing.

I think I’m in love. Intrigued, I immediately sought out her album Alas, I Cannot Swim and, expecting more bouncy pop music, found some of the best folk music I’ve heard in some time. I was also surprised to learn she’s only eighteen. Beautiful and haunting, Ghosts is a song I’m going to be listening to for some time.

Yes! I’ve been loving this song for a few weeks now, you beat me to the pen. Really good even before, Laura kicks in, but definitely adds a bit when she joins the band. Will definitely check out her album!

After hearing how shitty the new Young Knives album is, its good to hear that the holy British guitar still lives. Take that electro!

Is it just me or does the first guitarist look like Edward Scissorhands?

Either way, if anybody likes this single, they should waste no time in getting the first Good Shoes LP Think Before You Speak.
