A rather astonishing piece of alt-rock, a marvellous achievement for a debut record. Haunting strings and mid-90's Radiohead all the way for this one; this type of thing is rarely carried off to such a high standard. The only other band I can really think of doing this at this level at the moment is As Tall As Lions, and the fact that I'm not sure which is better should be testament to this record's brilliance.
The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
New album 'Flower Boy' comes later this summer.
