Stream the eagleowl EP ‘Into the Fold’ containing no.1 ‘No Conjunction’ and ‘Into The Fold Below’:

In answer of the accusations:

Let’s face it, every year it’s the same. It’s all indie, indie, indie…

Really? M.I.A., Konono N°1, Underworld, Kylie Minogue, Stanley Odd, Yeasayer…

It’s all men with guitars…

Given that women were responsible either in part or whole for eight out of the ten tracks in the top ten alone, I suggest you check it again.

…And it’s all Scottish.

Right… This is despite the appearance of Chile’s Panico, Konono N°1 hailing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, M.I.A. being from Sri Lanka, Bjork is Icelandic, and the Suzan are Japanese. Added to which the appearance of people from the US, Canada, Northern Ireland and England…get yourself a better atlas! Oh, and Kylie’s Australian.

You broke the bloggers code! Why aren’t the National in there? And Arcade Fire? It’s the rule!

Says you. I like the Arcade Fire’s latest, but found the National’s album to be as overrated as Grizzly Bear were last year.
