Glasvegas - Glasvegas (2008)

8.5/10
Glasvegas are Scotish indie rock band composed of James Allan on vocals and songwriting, Rab Allan on lead guitar, Paul Donoghue on bass guitar and Caroline McKay on drums. NME ranked first single "Daddy's Gone" as the second best track of 2007, and it came to my attention. Debut album Glasvegas is some kind of emotion explosion. It was like present-day version of any Jesus and Mary Chain songs, "Some Candy Talking", "Sowing Seeds" especially classic Mary Chains like "Side Walking" and "April Skies". Vocals are absorbing, guitars are gurgling round your ears.

It's very happy to discover a band which is so romantic, theatrical and confident. Glasvegas are new champions of indie rock!

Highlights: Flowers & Football Tops, Lonesome Swan, Polmont On My Mind, Daddy's Gone

Solange - Cranes In The Sky

A bit mad huh? There is something crazy about this song, is it the video or the lyrics? It's maybe just me.
