  • Do people generally take compliments very well? Seemingly we do not. No, this isn't one of those humble-braggy-look-at-me-loooooook-at-meeeeeee style posts; we're talking about fucking feelings here. Stuff is going well right now. Really well. The kind of stuff we'd find ourselves daydreaming about back when we weren't allowed anywhere near the kind of shit we're neck-deep in at the moment, for it being deemed far too big in terms of our capability to handle and also as a means of stamping out any degree of ambition that may or may not have existed at the time. It is almost as if ostensible vindication is the cruelist thing you can do to people like us; indeed we have been observed casually dressed (like we want some money) in deep in conversation with Ben Soep on several occasions claiming that we're really at our happiest when we have something to antagonise. Davey needs a Goliath's ass to kick, or at least attempt to. It hadn't really occurred to us...

[Track Of The Day: Parla "I've Been A Mess"]

As is customary following the four-day bender that is the Easter break – and trust us, we know what you lot get up to, probably because we did exactly what you did, and probably with you anyways – we’ve been thinking. Thinking our thoughts. A distinct division has occured in the various hemospheres of our … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Lowly "Daydreamer"]

“Are you drunk?”, our mother just asked us on the way back from the parental weekend retreat in, um, Hendon (the locale is gash – sorry Hendon – but the view of Wembley Stadium is nuts and we’ll never understand how a land developer actually got permission to build in a conservation area). No, mum. … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Joseph and The Bird "How Will I Know"]

  We have a pretty turbulent relationship with covers. We judge people, artists, whatever to the Nth degree based on their rework-ability. For instance, anyone could write a song. Seriously, they could. Whether that song is any good or not is debatable, but humans have been creating musical works for quite some time ever since … Read more

[Festival + Release: Killing Moon Stages & Compilation For Great Escape 2014]

  Now, from time to time, our memory is sketchy at best. We forget shit all the time. Names, dates, places, how to pronounce certain words like “apparel”, how much people owe us, how much we owe other people. We forgot to switch on a single pre-order once having spent about two months working on … Read more

What’s the opposite of inspired? Drained? Diminished? Bit buggered? Something like that? We just met possibly our most-looked-up-to producer of all time (and tried not to look as if we were losing our shit in the process to a degree of success we might add) and it has made us realise that we’ve spent a … Read more

[Release: John J Presley Announces Debut Single Via Killing Moon]

  Right. We’re getting a little bit fed up with people barging us out of the way and spilling the beans on our releases before we’ve had a chance to announce them. We don’t care if you’re Zane freaking Lowe or not giving it all your Next Hype this and big-ass rekkid that (well, we … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Communions "Cobblestones"]

One of those lazy Sundays yo. Look at that sunshine. Well, that’s pretty much all we’ve done so far, mainly as we’ve spent the majority of today sat on our bee-hind. Although don’t get us wrong. We’ve done useful shit. Domesticated shit. Clothes and dishes have been washed, rooms have been tidied, emails have been … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Banta "Dark Charms"/"Three Feet From Gold"]

We really want to whinge at you. Like, to the point that we’re actually about to burst with the sheer amount of anhedonism that our ever-fatigued body seems to be enduring. Live music seems to be like a drug to us at the moment. Fickle Friends. Manchester Orchestra. These events make us feel so elated … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Rooster Cole "More Than You"]

Bloody hell, Fickle Friends. You sure know how to bring the rain. Or sunshine really. The sunshine into our LIVES. Team KM piled into a car during the early evening hours of yesterday – say, 6.30pm or whatever – and suffice to say that was the most important car journey of our year so far. … Read more
