Another night trying to get to grips with all the submissions in my inbox.
The Chapman Family stood out with their song ‘Adult’, they’d made a track (from their forthcoming album, scheduled for the autumn) that makes me want to dance around the room playing air guitar, irrespective of me being in my mid-thirties.
This reminds me of the late Fatima Mansions, loud and articulate. Turn it up. This is a free download - but I’d be happy to be buy it. Certain sources would tell us guitar music is back. The Chapman Family sound like they don’t care whether it’s in or not this week, that they have to make this music.
