Kwabs – Walk

August 29, 2014

Tomorrow Team SGTMT are going on a family holiday, to Norway.

No relaxing trips to sit on the beach in the Mediterranean for us, no sir! We want to be damp. We want to be chilly. And we want really expensive fish.

We Were Promised Jetpacks – I Keep It Composed

August 28, 2014

The one where we disclose Egyptian Nuclear Secrets.

Cymbals Eat Guitars

Cymbals Eat Guitars – LOSE

August 24, 2014

From time to time, we stumble across an album that startles us, wakes us from our nonsensical stupor, knocks us out of our poorly matured cynicism (painfully masquerading as ‘music taste’) and makes us believe in good music all over again.

Only Real

Only Real – Pass The Pain

August 24, 2014

Gee, I can’t be bothered to explain. Urgh.

saint raymond

Saint Raymond – I Want You (Thom Alt – J Remix)

August 19, 2014

At his worst he threatens to sound like a good version of Ed Sheeran.

Music we missed last month

August 15, 2014

We moved house and forgot music for a while. Sorry ok. Here are 10 tunes you should catch up with.

Robyn Sherwell

Robyn Sherwell – Love Somebody

August 13, 2014

Today Team SGTMT went mug shopping. it didn’t go well, so Robyn Sherwell is calming us down.

manchester orchestra

Manchester Orchestra – Girl Harbour

August 12, 2014

Foot fungus killed SGTMT.

Years & Years

Years & Years – Take Shelter

August 7, 2014

Good grief it’s been busy at SGTMT Headquarters. Almost too busy to bring you new music, faithful, demanding followers.

You know how it is though guys, this is modern life. There’s so much TV to watch isn’t there?

Latitude Festival

Latitude Festival 2014 – Review

July 22, 2014

Last year, we sent Tom to eat ice cream at Latitude Festival and he enjoyed himself so much that we packed his sunscreen and sent him off to 2014′s offering. Here’s his diary, which is stuffed with music to listen to.

future islands

Phantogram – Black Out Days (Future Islands remix)

July 21, 2014

Team SGTMT spent this weekend at Suffolk’s Latitude Festival. A weekend of thunderstorms, tinned mackerel and (mostly) fantastic live music experiences. We’ll bash out our review for you soon, but we really really need a shower so it’ll have to wait.

Until then, here’s a track from two of the acts who provided a couple of the festival’s highlights.

VÉRITÉ

Keep an eye on… VÉRITÉ

July 16, 2014

TEAM SGTMT are on holiday. And would you take a look at the weather! It couldn’t be more perfect could it?

Although, wait, I guess it could be raining Oreos. Then it would be perfect. Other than that, though, it’s pretty amazing. You should see our tans.

the jezabels

The Jezabels – Time To Dance

July 13, 2014

Bells chime and whistles ring out (there are no bells or whistles, let’s just be clear) and The Jezabels are back

BRONCHO

BRONCHO – Class Historian

July 11, 2014

BRONCHO are back with Class Historian. Indie feel-good song of the summer? Dunno really. We like it though yeah.

duologue

Duologue – Forests

July 10, 2014

‘We wanted to write an album about a person’s struggle in the digital age and the changing landscape of relationships, to explore the concept of being alone together in a curious kind of public solitude. The album is a reflection on that anxiety but also a search for some meaning and solace within it.’

ugly zoo

Ugly Zoo // Zaleski

July 1, 2014

Good grief this makes no sense. I think I’ve eaten too many meringue nests. I didn’t think you could eat too many meringue nests. They are awfully good with a summer fruit topping of some form.

Music we missed last week Pt 2

June 30, 2014

So welcome to our 2nd edition of ‘Music we missed last week’. Which, unsurprisingly, completely comprises music we failed to blog about last week.

SGTMT Summer Playlist 2014

June 25, 2014

This is made up of a whole batch of new music from 2014 that we think loosely fits under the banner of ‘summery’. Don’t ask us to define that. Don’t. Just listen ok?

The Antlers

The Antlers – Hotel

June 24, 2014

How long have these Breakaways been in the SGTMT pantry do you think? They seemed ok at first, but we remember them being crunchier than this. They’ve gone a bit soft. *Smack smack* yeah these aren’t right. But we’ll still eat them. You can’t waste good chocolate biscuits.

This rule doesn’t apply to everything of course.

Gems

Music we missed last week Pt 1

June 23, 2014

So we’ve decided to launch a new feature on SGTMT. It’s worth mentioning at this point that most ‘new features’ we launch survive only one, perhaps two at best, incarnations. Our usual pattern is as follows: “oooooooo, new tune we likes, let us post”. So, how long this latest features lasts is open to debate. Actually it’s not open to debate. This isn’t a democracy. We’re in charge, you’re not. Deal with it.

Daniel James
Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware – Tough Love

June 16, 2014

Team SGTMT spent this weekend in the south of France, working on our tans and seeing some pals of the blog get married. Heck, we wish you’d been there with us – it was so romantic. And those views. And the swimming pool. You’d have loved it.

We’re back home now and having pastry withdrawal symptoms. Step up our perma-crush Jessie Ware.

KAIROS

Keep an eye on: KAIROS

June 16, 2014

We hereby order you all to keep an eye on – KAIROS. That should be all we need to say on the matter, please don’t make us repeat ourselves. ‘Cos, we’ve noticed, sometimes you kids don’t always listen to what we tell you to. I mean, come one people. Who has better music taste? Us or you? Well that’s simple. Obviously. Gee.

nimmo and the gauntletts

Nimmo And The Gauntletts – Others

June 11, 2014

Tim decided to veet all his body hair and it caused the mother of all blockages

hooray for earth

Hooray For Earth – Keys

June 10, 2014

It’s all nicely packaged & presented, it looks clean & pleasantly edible, it’s not ground-breaking or game changing, it’s simply just a good lasagne. I mean indie-rock song… Is this an analogy now or a fact? ‘Cos, to be straight with y’all, I could talk about lasagne all night long. Gee it sure is tasty.
