Spectrals hit my ears recently, and were received quite warmly indeed. The man behind the name is L, a northerner who makes doo-wap inspired fuzz-pop. Or something like that. It’s continuing the hazy vibe I’ve been loving so much recently; songs that wash over you whilst subconsciously burrowing into your brain. ‘Keep Your Magic Out Of My House’ is the track I’ve played most so far.
TLOBF (still easily my favourite site) has a brief interview with L. Not only are his songs splendid, he’s a Friends fan. All good by me.
A full length LP entitled Bad Penny is set to be released sometime this year, for now you can get a split 7″ with Fair Ohs on Tough Love Records here, and the ‘7th Date’ 7″ on Slumberland Records here.

One of my favourite tracks this week has been No Age’s new song ‘Glitter’. I’m always a sucker for a good hand clap, so that accompanied by a thumping beat, a guitar haze and lyrics such as “Everyone’s out to get you here, and I want you back underneath my skin” have me hooked. The Line Of Best Fit featured it as their song of the day on Wednesday, so you can download it below thanks to those guys. Although if you don’t already keep up with their fantastic site you probably don’t deserve it….
