I've Counted All My Fingers & I'm Onto My Thumbs

It's gratifying to see such praise being heaped on Django Django over recent weeks, following the long-awaited release of their debut album. I saw them live in March on triumphant form, when on more than one occasion during the evening they channeled the spirit of Piper era Pink Floyd, whilst maintaining their own individual sound.

Next month finally sees the equally long-awaited (by me anyway!) Clock Opera album. Like Django Django they've released isolated tracks since 2009 followed by prolonged periods of silence.

This is probably my favourite song of the last two years.

Two great bands, I loved Django Django's 'Default' but like you I'm really looking forward to Clock Opera's album. Probably one of the most exciting bands out there I think, their songs take on an epic scale with 'Lesson No 7' one of my favourite tracks of last year. In fact I'm off to see them later this month!

Incredible gig last night!!! It was at the Boileroom in Guildford which is a tiny venue so very intimate, seriously there must have been only abou max 40 people! Lesson No 7 was a definite highlight for me but they performed fantastic renditions of Once and for All and Belongings. Got the T-shirt! Roll on Monday for the album which I think you can stream from their site.

Digging the album. The gig sounded amazing - I think I probably hate you right now!
