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.

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.

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.

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

Tourist is one of our favourites at SGTMT Headquarters.
Whenever he visits he always takes his shoes off. He never puts his tea mug down without a coaster. And he brings biscuits. Let us tell you there are some other pop stars who could take a leaf out of his book. Kanye, we’re looking at you here. You’ve been round here how many times now? And still no biscuits. Not once. Rude.

This week at SGTMT HQ we’ve been enjoying our rediscovery of corned beef sandwiches. We could say so much more about corned beef sandwiches but we should probably leave it there. Not the sandwiches of course, we’re not leaving them anywhere. Already consumed of course.

It would be easy to slip into some soppy sentiment about ‘Anthems & Arenas’, though they definitely bear those qualities. However what most impresses is their eruptive live show which dramatically displays their raw aggression mixed, unusually, with some quite thoughtful synth stylings. We loved it.

Bear’s Den are London trio Andrew Davie, Joey Haynes, and Kevin Jones. They specialise in the sort of reflective warmth and sparsely splendid arrangements and anthems that have so won our hearts at SGTMT.

We’ve spent just one day with Shura and we’re smitten. Like when we first tasted butterscotch flavour Angel Delight. It was instant, um, delight. Except this time no matter how much we enjoy it over and over again we don’t throw up over our mother’s favourite cushion.

Since the new year we’ve been on a fitness kick here at SGTMT HQ. Luke is suddenly wild about orienteering (apparently it’s a traditional Romanian sport), Tim has taken about figure skating and Tom just won’t shut up about his new crossbow (don’t ask).

I cannot do anything about the world kitten shortage but I can provide you with a charming pop band from Finland.

It was Tubemagaddon in London today everyone. Queues everywhere. Closed stations. Gridlocked traffic. Chaos reigned. CHAOS.
In the end it took just an hour and half for society to break down. Feral commuters abandoned briefcases and tore through the streets looking for roadkill to feast on, their suits shredded and filthy with mud and, in some cases, the blood of other slower commuters. It was like a scene from, um, I don’t know like I guess ‘Falling Down’ or something but with more protagonists, and more rain.

Amsterdam based Wooden Saints are a 10 piece band… WAIT! hold the phones people, 10 piece did you say? Yep, 10 (ten) pieces, like one of those packs of frozen fish you can buy at Aldi but, like, with musicians not fish.

For Kitsuné we might even throw a party, jelly and neapolitan. Wow.

We could pretend we’ve followed their career closely, like the journalistic hawks you surely believe we are. We haven’t though. Soz. I guess we could at least spend an evening delving through their back catalogue and acquainting ourselves with their depth and variety. Ugh. Sounds like hard work eh? Look, give us a break, we heard this track and it tickled our fancy. End of.

The Space Project album consists of 14 tracks, seven pairs of songs, each based on a distinct celestial body: the planets Jupiter (Porcelain Raft, The Antlers), Neptune (Spiritualized “Mississippi Space Program,” The Holydrug Couple), Uranus (Youth Lagoon, Blues Control), Saturn (Beach House, Zomes) and Earth (Absolutely Free, Jesu), and the moons Miranda (Mutual Benefit, Anna Meredith) and Io (Benoit & Sergio, Larry Gus).

We’ve not heard from Dinosaur Pile-Up in a while. Actually, I think last time we did it was an almost good gig at Jam in Brighton a few years back. I say ‘almost good’ because the PA system was beyond awful and the operator dude had seemingly decided that the only way to overcome this deficiency was to crank the volume to somewhere past ’11′. Ear splittingly loud doesn’t quite do it justice, it was vomit inducingly loud. Ugh, bad memories…

Team SGTMT are on HOLIDAY. We’ve got HOLIDAY FEVER. Two whole weeks away from the mines, and it’s fun-packed already. So far we’ve eaten bolognese for breakfast, ridden our bicycles, done some washing and been to Birmingham. WHAT AN ADVENTURE. If we all died right now we’d die happy.
There’s loads of time left but judging by what we’ve done this morning we’re going to spend all of it sat in the SGTMT Canteen listening to KHUSHI.

The story goes that East India Youth (William Doyle) was once a floppy haired, navel gazing, post teen, indie band singer. Then, all of a sudden, an electronic redemption took place. A future singing about not being able to get a girlfriend was, in a moment, averted. Now, a brighter dawn awaits. Will D now gets to sing about not being able to get a girlfriend but with beeps, blips and angry robot noises.

SGTMT co-writer Luke ‘claims’ to not actually be from Albania, we’re not convinced. Not that we’ve got anything against Albanians, lovely people I’m sure.

Peace Sign is the first new song from WWPJ in over two years and is ahead of their new live album out next month. Peace Sign will also be on their next studio album due out in the Autumn

Will this be Glasvegas before they were dull? Biffy before they were released they were good (when they actually were good)? Or more like Frightened Rabbit all the time maybe? If it’s anything like the Fratellis then we quit. Everything, ok, we’ll quit everything. Listening, eating, breathing, the lot (though not making Airfix models, that rules).
