My favourite release of 2008 so far just has to be the Photo EP by The Darlings (on WeePOP! records). Now, normally I'd bang on about the virtues of said EP at some length here, but fortunately (for you and for me) Knut over at the excellent Eardrums Music has already written an informative and entertaining review of it, which you can read here.
Eardrums also have a track from the Photo EP, Emily, available for free download - which is handy as the EP itself has now sold out!
Now apparently it's Valentine's Day today (something I genuinely hadn't even realised until reading it on another blog a few minutes ago), so, as a sop to the soppy, here are a couple of classic lurve songs!
10,000 Maniacs - I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You mp3
Pale Saints - Kinky Love mp3
(mp3s available for 7 days)
