“Born Under A Bad Sign”

We could get quite used to this whole staying in mumbjo jumbo. Our reasoning is simple; it is cold, wet, and shite outside; it is warm, dry, and awesome inside. Plus our theory that the telly is composed of nothing more than a million channels with absolutely zero content (on the premise that TV programs need to contain something substantive in order to be deemed in possession of content). We’re spending more time with the family – aside from the half an hour (more or less) that it takes in order to gather images of, write copy for, and ultimately create the obligatory blog posts that we seem to have become more obsessed with when faced with the prospect that we should actually give it a rest at some point before and during the festive break – and all that good will to our fellow man bullshit seems to actually be working for us, and going some way to improve our mental and phsyical well-being. Providing soundscape to our smug sense of familiar superiority, at least in our heads, are rising internet soon-to-be superstars Fairewell, and their seemingly one-man programmed soothing easy-goer Born Under A Bad Sign which signifies the latest in our impromtu “you should have been paying more attention to what was going on in blog-world” series. This intriguing new entity has been lapped up by a number of major music publications in terms of print, online and on-air – 6music, The Line Of Best Fit, NME and The Fly already having declared themselves fans – by plain virtue of the Death Cab For Cutie-via-Gross Magic-via-Diamond Rings sonic vibes eminating from its general direction, and also reinforced by this DIY-natured and Cub Scout-heavy viral for the track in discussion. Some decent London shows on the horizon have cropped up for early 2012 as well, namely at The Lexington on 18th January (w/ Diagrams) followed by The Social on 13th February (w/ Crushed Beaks). Get in the mood.
