It’s Record Shop Day today but I didn’t get up at 06:00, trek into the town and queue outside Monorail for a couple of hours this morning, as after scouring the list of releases extensively I couldn’t find anything that warranted that sort of effort this year. I will visit Monorail later in the week or maybe next weekend and see if the couple of things that did interest me are still available, if not nae dram as they say. I decided that the money saved will be put to better use on a couple of northern soul singles that I am trying to find at the moment.
Anyway back to the what I think will be short lived series of posts on new music. Mike at Crashing Through Publicity sent me through something a few weeks ago that caught my eye.The blurb said that Luxembourg Signal was the new project featuring members of The Trembling Blue Stars whom I loved. Although Distant Drive isn’t the most cutting edge piece of music it is a damn fine example of jingle jangle, summery indie guitar music which harks back to the time when every release from Sarah records was an essential purchase if you wore stripey t-shirt and anorak.
The single will be released on the 29th of April on limited 7″ and digital form and is well worth purchasing.
