Song of the Day - September 8, 2006

More Brit pop, this time from Sheffield. The Long Blondes, who are not blond at all, have caused quite a stir in the British media. According to their website the band consists of Dorian on licks, Screech on sticks, Kate on lips, Reenie on hips, and Emma on high kicks. Recently signed to Rough Trade, they have released an EP entitled Weekend Without Make Up, which features the aforementioned tune. However, I find "Fulwood Babylon" to be the ultimate cut. Kate's vocals are reminiscent of Chrissie Hynde, especially during the spoken parts. In fact, it is the spoken vocals that distinguish this particular cut, and make it irresistible.
