Check this out, Darlings!

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)

Buy 10,000 Maniacs and Pale Saints stuff here.

Buy WeePOP! releases here.

Thanks for the kind words! And... Pale Saints are underrated!

Great couple of songs! I was looking for Kinky Love the other day (ooh-er!) but couldn't find it, so your timing couldn't be better.

I didn't know where I knew the darlings, but now I suposse it was in eardrums too, it is an excellent blog, one of my favorites.

The Darlings are great, and I also like very much 10,000 Maniacs
