Wilsen – Magnolia

April 23, 2014

Here at SGTMT we’ve had a grand Easter. Thanks for asking, we’re touched. We ate our body weight in Creme Eggs (down in one yeah?) and swam in the English Channel. It was cold and we might have lost a nipple, too scared to check.

brett

Brett – Golden

April 22, 2014

The synths roll in like atlantic waves on Devonshire summers eve (North Devon, somewhere near Appledore. With chips in hand of course yeah).

Daughter Air Studios

Daughter – 4AD Air Studios Session EP

April 19, 2014

Last year Team SGTMT had a turbulent relationship with Daughter, one of our favourite acts…

Young Romance

Young Romance – Pale / Break My Heart By Morning

April 13, 2014

Yesterday seemed like a lovely day for a day trip. So Team SGTMT got on our pushbikes and set off on a leisurely ride from London to Brighton.

human human

Human Human – Lips

April 10, 2014

Human Human have a faint Suede echo, but only when Suede weren’t being annoying, which admittedly was almost always. Maybe forget that comparison… Suede were the most overrated band from Britpop surely?

hydrogen sea

Hydrogen Sea – Leave A Mark

April 9, 2014

t first listen it would be easy to write them off as offering a slightly perk-less comatose pop; however, let it spin for a minute or two people.

CHVRCHES

SOAK – The Mother We Share (Chvrches cover)

April 8, 2014

SOAK decided to return the favour and cover The Mother We Share. The greatest cover of 2014 so far? We think so.

Warpaint

Warpaint – Disco // Very + Keep It Healthy

April 7, 2014

We’ve not liked Warpaint as much as we should have done. For this we apologise. We feel like we’ve let our loyal readers down. I mean, you rely on us for music discovery, fine journalism (we’ve won awards don’t you know. Well, like, not actual real awards, but one’s we’ve imagined in our heads and that) and insightful comment and opinion (remember that time we wrote about sea cows?)

Port Isla

Port Isla – Steamroller

April 5, 2014

At SGTMT we find it difficult to mention Norfolk without a torrent of abuse pouring forth. I mean, like, why? A county that’s only redeeming feature is Cromer really doesn’t have a lot going for it. Eurgh.

the antlers

The Antlers – Palace

April 2, 2014

When we learned earlier this week that The Antlers were back, well, we had a little moment. A silent tear was shed, a quiver became a tingle, and a tingle became a judder which then begat a small mini-leap of joy and a muffled yippee

slow club

Slow Club – Complete Surrender

March 30, 2014

Slow Club are boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar) from Sheffield. We love this tune.

alice boman
Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso – Coffee

March 27, 2014

Today Team SGTMT are going out for pizza. The original plan was coffee, but pizza is a sizeable upgrade we think you’ll all agree.

papa

PAPA – I’m Not Sorry

March 24, 2014

Tom & Tim wrestling naked in a bath of Sugar Puffs is not a pretty sight.

soak

SOAK – 24 Windowed House

March 20, 2014

The problem is, now we can’t be bothered to write anything. You guys deserve better we know, but we’re in charge not you alright? Ungrateful wot nots. Got a problem then read another blog yeah? Yeah.

Wye Oak

Wye Oak – Glory

March 19, 2014

Today Team SGTMT had a lunchtime yogurt mishap.

As part of our ongoing drive for a healthier, happier workforce, Team SGTMT are being encouraged to eat healthily and take exercise. Yogurts are The Leadership’s latest idea for keeping trim, this next period in our Happier Living Programme beginning only yesterday with a toffee yogurt (we know but they’re tasty shut up). The endeavour continued today when we took an excursion deep into strawberry yogurt territory.

They don’t warn us about exploding yogurts though, do they?

gem club

Gem Club – Polly

March 17, 2014

Polly is the latest release from the exquisite Gem Club.

arthur beatrice

Arthur Beatrice – Late

March 15, 2014

Just imagine the most perfectly formed lemon meringue pie – at first glance it’s just a crunchy meringue but NO, oh no. Beneath the surface lies a daring lemon twang pleasantly disguised in that, like, squishy squashy layer.

Doe Paoro

Doe Paoro – Walking Backwards

March 10, 2014

Remember Sea Cows? Yeah, they looked like cows but, like, amphibious. They’re extinct, or maybe not. I’d look it up but can’t be bothered, soz.

summer camp

Summer Camp – Crazy

March 6, 2014

Here at SGTMT HQ we’re equally awaiting summer. We spent most of yesterday afternoon on our veranda drinking shandy & perry with our new neighbours, Shandy & Perry. They’re nice.

aquilo

Aquilo – You There

March 4, 2014

Luke is dead.

soak

Soak – Blud (Chvrches remix)

March 2, 2014

Chvrches could realise a remix of tractor accidentally running over a gaggle of ducks and, with one accord, the online masses would applaud and bow the head.

vancouver sleep clinic

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Flaws

February 28, 2014

It’s, y’know, flawless…

Woman's Hour

Woman’s Hour – Her Ghost

February 26, 2014

It’s a beautiful day out there guys. Yet we’re inside missing it. What would our mothers say?

We’ll go outside in a minute, perhaps to ride our bicycles. Team SGTMT did that a lot as children and it led to many an adventure, most notably the time we stumbled upon an abandoned airfield and, inside a dusty bullet-holed hangar, found the local drug baron’s stash of hard cash. His ill-gotten gains. Left unattended. Schoolboy error. We looked at each other, eyes wide in delight and hearts pounding and considered what to do.

the jungle giants

The Jungle Giants – She’s A Riot

February 24, 2014

She’s A Riot is as catchy as Cholera in Victorian London
