A Break (An Easter One)

So my run of consistent postings lasted just under four weeks. Ahh well. It’s not that I’d run out of things to say, far from it. It has just been the last week before the Easter mid-semester break and all that work I should have been doing when I was blogging and obsessing over music finally caught up. The moments of madness are over for the time being, but I doubt I’ll be reaching the dizzy heights of three posts a week again.

I’m preparing some pretty lengthy posts for some bands I love that don’t get much coverage in the UK and also a lot more little gems from the bands that do (or at least did).

But for now, I’m taking a rest from madness.

So here’s something by The Rakes to kick us back into gear.
A new album Ten New Messages, should be out now (in fact, two weeks ago, alas, I am that out of touch) that seems to mine more eclectic territory sonically, but they’ve always been the masters at capturing that feeling of the daily grind. So regardless of what you do, you can probably find something to relate to here, with this track off the debut, Capture/Release:

The Rakes – Work Work Work (Pub Club Sleep)
[Buy Capture/Release]

And Happy Easter…
