You know the story these days; a new album announcement accompanied by a free taster song. It works nicely for me, but often these things come along like buses. So over the past day there’s been news of three potential belters coming out in the next few months.
First up, Field Music. A band that I’ve not always clicked with, but when they hit their stride, they’re capable of great things. New album Plumb is out in February, and the new tune ‘(I Keep Thinking About) A New Thing’ is classic Field Music.
Next was new Errors record Have Some Faith In Magic, out in January on Rock Action records. It’s heralded as their greatest shift in sound yet, and this first taster is a promising hint at their new ’sprawling pop’ direction. With added vocals too, although this being Errors, we’re not talking conventional singing of lyrics.
And finally, before both of these comes the Lil Daggers album on Song, By Toad in early December. Unlike a lot of the other Toad bands, these guys aren’t from Edinburgh. Maimi is where these scuzzy garage rockers hail from, but props to Matthew for finding these guys and putting out what’s shaping up to be a great record.
