Singles Club: The Decemberists, Blossoms, Frank Turner

Music. It’s everywhere, but is it any good? In this occasional series I take on the weeks most interesting singles, or sometimes I just don’t bother because I am lazy. A bunch of big releases roused me from my breakfast food induced slumber this time out. Starting with…

Top Ten Alternative Christmas Songs

We all know what the best Christmas song is. It’s ‘Fairytale of New York’. There is no debate. That is the best one. However, there is a tendency at Christmas to fall back on the same old songs and the same old bands. Rather than doing that this year, here is an alternative to the normal rabble. The only rule is no covers, and nothing that clogs up all the usual festive playlists at Christmas times. Let’s go…
