I am a lucky, lucky man to be doing the job I do. Getting paid to write about an amazing record, and talk to one of its makers. Lucky, lucky, lucky.
Read my review of Wild Beasts‘ new album, Smother, on the BBC.
Read my interview with frontman Hayden Thorpe on the BBC Music Blog.
So good. Probably my favourite album of the year so far. If it’s not in the Mercury shortlist when it’s announced in July, somebody’s made a mistake.
