Spring has sprung and we are a 1/4 way through 2012 already, this last few weeks has seen the arrival of a raft of wonderful recordings and I thought it an appropriate time to put something on record.
My youngest is now starting to take more notice of the sounds emanating from the various speakers and portable devices his old man appears to have permanently switched on in one form or another and made a rather sweeping statement last week “Dad you listen to so much different music” which started a variety is the spice of life conversation, not sure he wholly grasped my initial responses but with a few football comparisons thrown in a little nod of the head acknowledged the concept, so the blog will continue to ignore any central focus, genre, artist type or hype and simply focus on the music I like.

After hearing a couple of tracks from First Aid Kit’s album The Lions Roar (buy) and as I fan of their previous releases I was tempted into pre-ordering the vinyl on this album from Wichita Recordings – the album turned up on release day and has been of heavy rotation since it’s arrival, I’ve gushed hopelessly about it to anyone who was listening and hopefully shifted them a few units in the process. There’s a whole load of great reviews out there already so no need for me to wax lyrical, suffice to say the first three tracks are one of the strongest trio of album openers I’ve heard in a long time – the rest are top notch too.
Here’s that trio of tracks from live performances for your listening pleasure.
