bombay bicycle club: shuffle video

I know I've posted and raved about this song already but this video makes me giggle so much. Human bicycle, anyone?

peggy sue: cut my teeth

 I wonder who the muse for this song was.

The first song to be released from Peggy Sue's second album, and it's growing on me. It's lost the layers of acoustic guitar that made me bob around to songs like Yo Mama and Fossils And Other Phantoms as a whole, and with my weakness for anything with acoustic guitar it's a real shame, but nevertheless I can't help going back and listening to it over and over again. The darker sounds from the electric guitar work well, especially coupled with the fierce and perhaps slightly morbid lyrics of "I cut my teeth, on his flesh, and watched him weeping, as I left". Acrobats, the title of their second album, will be out on the 12th September - another album to look out for that month.

P.S. You can download Cut My Teeth for free from Peggy Sue's website here.
