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.

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.

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.

Bells chime and whistles ring out (there are no bells or whistles, let’s just be clear) and The Jezabels are back
July 11, 2014
BRONCHO are back with Class Historian. Indie feel-good song of the summer? Dunno really. We like it though yeah.

‘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.’

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
June 7, 2014
We’re newcomers to Cymbals Eat Guitars. We feel bad about it. I mean… y’know… Ok, let’s just not talk about it. Deal? Stop looking at us like that yeah? Leave it, LEAVE IT. Don’t make it like that time with the fake penguins at the zoo. IT WASN’T OUR FAULT.
June 6, 2014
Every now and again, and it doesn’t happen often enough sadly, we’re introduced to a record that turns out to be an instant favourite. Recently a friend pointed us in the direction of The War On Drugs’ third Lost In The Dream LP, and it has hardly left the SGTMT Headquarters stereo since. It’s wonderful. So wonderful we’ll make a bold claim…

This week has been a total disaster at SGTMT HQ.
Even worse than that time when the shelves collapsed and I was nearly killed. Remember that? It was harrowing. Regular readers (hi Matt and Tim!) will know everything on the blog is a metaphor, apart from when it’s not, and I can’t even remember what had happened that time. But this is worse for sure.

Reaching beyond the sum of their parts to something brighter & bolder; something tender & evocative but doused with a sepia melancholy.

Oh, by the way, did we tell you the story about the jam thief in the SGTMT family? Yeah, serious. We’ve not paid for jam in about two years. I can’t say anymore. In fact I’ve probably already said too much… Nuts… Look, let’s just pretend nothing was ever said alrighty? OR let’s just say it was marmalade instead ok? OK?
May 13, 2014
So we sent those cotton buds to where the sun don’t shine: Bolton.
May 11, 2014
We’re delighted to herald not only two new tunes by two new artists, but also the first release on a brand new label. Wowzers, you kids are in for a treat.
