We’re no Pop Princesses at SGTMT (except Tom of course) but this summer time brand of Dream Pop spins quite delightfully on our gramophone.

Last night Team SGTMT went out for a little boogie.
It had been a long old day, and we were pretty pooped, but we’d promised Danish pop sensation MØ that we’d go see her show at London’s Cargo. You know those nights where you hope that the set is nice and short so you can get it over and done with and crawl back into the bunk beds at the SGTMT Dorm Room? It was one of those.

We’ve been big fans of Big Deal for a while now. We’ve been, like, making a Big Deal about them. HA HA HA HA HA HA. HA. HAHAHAHAH. Ha ha… Ahem.

SGTMT are hiring! We need a new masseuse.
So we’ve spent the entire day doing back to back interviews in a Watford hotel where there was a rude receptionist but free breakfast. Interviewing all day is an oddly exhausting experience. Talking. Listening. Talking. Listening. It’s weird. Anyway, we found a good one; the one that looked like Sky Ferreira.
That done we’ve headed back to the SGTMT Headquarters Listening Room (shelves now repaired after *this* tragic accident) and we’ve been having a root around the music portal. We’ve found a real treat, let us tell you.

In our role as greatest and most respected of all online music emporiums (FACT), we felt it highly appropriate to give our own opinion on this latest release. I mean, what would the world do without our expert view and analysis? Seriously, what would you do? Would you cope? Would you survive? Would life continue with any meaning at all without SGTMT? We think probably not.

There has been a terrible accident at SGTMT Headquarters.
I’d been telling the lads that we need to get the shelves looked at for weeks. The ones in the Listening Room which hold all the vinyl. They’re an accident waiting to happen, I said. Matt said it would cost too much to get someone in to fiddle with them. Furthermore, we spent the whole maintenance budget on re-sealing the bath (probably a reference to my over-excited bath behaviour I noted with narrowed eyes), so the shelves would have to wait.

They specalise in slowly melting cold hearts through intense, anthemic, yet soothingly lackadaisical adventures. Tamsin’s voice rules the roost, like an oddly tender Cockerel. As she sings ‘Dusk is rolling in’, you can almost feel yourself being enveloped within the misty clouds of a winters morn.

Sublime. 7 mins of perfectly balanced, precisely pitched and subtly transcendent electronica. Lush.

Over here at SGTMT HQ we’ve spent the day listening to the sounds of Iceland. We were presently surprised. We were expecting the sounds of fevered Eskimos drumming incessantly on tightened seal skin drums, with Narwhal tusks instead of Vic Firths. Or perhaps some frozen variant of dubstep – winterstep or icicle-grime.

Hey Sholay are back. They had an incident with a van and, like, all their instruments being stolen by a masked but barely concealed George Osborne (they could tell by the walk). We made that last bit up…

The Internet has been all hot and bothered over Daft Punk the last few weeks. Daft Punk, Daft Punk, Daft Punk, (bit of Jai Paul), Daft Punk.
But we’re more excited about Disclosure.

At first, to be straight with y’all, we only liked Junip because of Jose Gonzalez. I know, I know… philistines etc. etc. Jose was actually part of Junip first, yadda, yadda..

SGTMT HQ is a joyous place. We’re frequently celebrating the wonder of life through the medium of dance. Monday is ballet, Tuesday is tango and Wednesday, well.. it’s probably best we don’t say. Tom, gets upset you see. He’s got all the moves, he’s got the best outfits but sadly his feet are two small for his new tap shoes. Poor little button.

Tomorrow, Team SGTMT are being sent on a training course.
This one is about time management; our owners have looked at the blog and decided we can be more productive. “Find more good music, post more good music, WRITE SOMETHING GOOD!” We protested and, well it all got a bit out of hand, but they threatened to remove our Angel Delight rights. So we’re going. To Peterborough.

This was the song we’d been waiting for, the one that stopped us in our tracks, gently beckoned us to turn up the stereo and then ever so sweetly yet dramatically stole our hearts.

We’ve been on an emotional roller coaster with POLIÇA.
Late last year we all spent a day at Thorpe Park and rode all the rides (apart from the Log Flume, because frontwoman Channy Leaneagh refused to get wet), including The Emotional Roller Coaster. They do it by releasing different gasses through the seats at certain times or something, very clever, but anyway, the ride starts off with a feeling of elation, giving way to a shallow melancholy and a brief period of tense paranoia, before ending with a thick blanket of bewilderment. It’s not a fun ride, give it a miss. Go on the waltzers instead.
Not really, we refer of course to our own relationship with the band’s music. Had you going there.

If you fell in love with Frank Ocean, like we did last year, then this will be right up your street.

Righto chaps, team SGTMT has been a little quiet this week. We’re sorry. Actually we’re not. We deserve a break all right? It’s not like you pay us or anything so cut the aggro.

In the 80s, sci-fi films had a habit of featuring awful ‘future music’. The sort of tunes we would supposedly all be listening to on Radio 2 in 2013. It was a jungle of electronic nonsense mixed with the occasional heavy metal riff. Remember that? Eurgh.

Here at SGTMT we love a good jigsaw. It’s stress-relieving and great fun for all the family. When was the last time you got your 1,000-piece out and got down to it? Too long ago we imagine, too long. How about getting your jig on right now?
BUT BE CAREFUL KIDS!

Sometimes at SGTMT we forget. It’s sad I know. We forgot Tim’s medication, we forgot where Luke is (where is he?) and worst of all we forgot Tom’s home made pavlova was in the oven, what a palaver.
To cap it all, we forgot Great Mountain Fire. I’m sorry, we’re sorry. We’ve let you, the loyal readers of SGTMT and the earnest record buying public down. ‘Tis a sham and shame.
However, all is not lost, far from it. Actually we have news carried to us just this past week on the fair winds of gmail. Great Mountain Fire are back.

Oh boy, we love Chris Walla!
We loved him with Death Cab For Cutie (at the start we really loved him, less so later on, but there you go). And his solo Field Manual LP is REALLY GREAT. So news that he’s releasing a single for Record Store Day has got us excited.

We stumbled across this new remix from Wildcat! Wildcat! (who we like) of the excellent Wings track by Haerts (who we really like, like really). It’s a goodie.

THEM LUCKY JAPANESE, they get everything first!
Crazy technology from the future? CHECK! Kitten cafes? CHECK! Godzilla attack? CHECK!

‘In loving memory of Lisa, Rob and Vicky.’ That’s the moving and final remarks of the letter from Charley Bickers that we received alongside his new album Our Frail Hearts. To be honest, any words from SGTMT seem quite out of place right now (we’d probably just pour forth some drivel about robotic guinea pigs or hallucinogenic toothpaste or summat), so we’ve decided to hand the illustrious stage right over to Charley himself and let you read his letter in full.
