‘Trains to Brazil’ is a great song, and it made me rather obsessed with Guillemots for awhile. Then I got the EP for cheap at Sunrise Records and enjoyed it, but once again focused on that song, and then kind of forgot about them. I meant to check out their LP Through the Windowpane, but it got lost in the shuffle. And suddenly I find out they have a new album, Red, out and a killer new single. So basically what I’m saying is: I’m sorry Guillemots. I haven’t given you the respect you deserve. I promise I’ll make it right. Yet another band to add to the recent Britpop kick I’m on.
And this has nothing to do with Britpop, but Man Man’s new album is going to be something special. For your listening pleasure, this is ‘Top Drawer’. Enjoy the weird. I can’t wait for Rabbit Habits.
