The Lucksmiths - Up With The Sun / A Sobering Thought
In advance of their eleventh album, the Lucksmiths release a free two track download. When you think of The Lucksmiths, you think of all the purveyors of perfect pop, The Go-Betweens, Belle and Sebastian, etc. and this time is no exception.
Up With The Sun is another gem, delightful lyrics and a crisp vocal performance from Tali White. A Sobering Thought (Just When One Was Needed) is a close relation of Belle and Sebastian’s The Boy With The Arab Strap, but another beauty in its own right. Wry and soulful, with a gentle groove. Looks like the album First Frost, is shaping up to be another great one.
Download available 10th November
First Frost is released on Fortuna Pop on 8th December
