This post is totally mercenary. I don’t rate Ellie Goulding, and will be deaf to the masses of hype and fluff that’s going to be whizzing about very soon. Neither am I a fan of Midlake, although I’m happy to admit that Roscoe is a great song. You may then think that this post is just designed to drive more traffic to my blog, and you’d be partly right, but despite my lack of love for both coverer and covered, I do think this is a decent little number.
Recorded off Lauren Laverne’s ace new 6Music show, by the way.
