Band: Darker My Love

Album: Alive as you Are. 60s-ish flavour, with George Harrison-esque vocals and guitar and a hint of White Denim perhaps. Beautiful bass playing and sound. It’s a really lovely record.

A couple of tracks:

New America. Very Kinks. That beautiful bass.

Dear Author. The subject matter puts me in mind of Paperback Writer, so that can’t be bad. The militaristic drumming and guitar ‘chime’ is very reminiscent of Are You Experienced? by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.


On the relatively rare occasion I go to a gig, I might put something here.

Band: S.W.E.A.T. Seen at The Portland Arms in Cambridge a few months back. I didn’t know who we were going to see, so when the support band sounded like this it was a very pleasant surprise. S.W.E.A.T. evoke the sound of an imaginary party in the 80s that I was never invited to at the time. I like to imagine the band always lives this lifestyle.
