We haven’t slept for the entire weekend. Well, of course we fucking have, but generally it feels like we only got those 15 minutes that certain people who look like Prune Face from Dick Tracy would have us believe are all that you really require in order to function as a normal human being. Then again, what is normal? And given the xenophobic nature of certain people of late – turns out if you wanna flush out any of these sorts on your social media, all you have to do is place something mildly sympathetic to the plight of thousands of displaced people around the world literally fleeing for their lives, such as a link to a petition on Facebook for example, and the closet (and not-so-closet) racists will just reveal themselves anyway because they like to give it all the big-man speak all the time – indeed, what is human? Far from our most recent bout of insomnia being related to anything either self-deprecating or any of that super emo shit that usually keeps us up at night. Actually, its the complete opposite. Due to a few recent and soon-to-be-announced circumstances, we’re finally convinced that we’re not shit at our made-up job and that we’re not letting people who depend on us down all the time. We’re as excited as a kid on Christmas Eve. Or as a 30 year old British Indian pop-punk enthusiast living in London getting free Nando’s at Bestival this weekend. Or as a pig in shit. Any of those things. We are, however, really looking forward to getting some sleep. In fact, Berkeley Edwards has just ordered us to do so on the phone. Thanks for the tip B’Edwards. So we need something soothing; something to make us forget the sheer amount of super cool shit we’ve got coming up, which makes a change from the occasional anxiety-driven sleepless nights. This guy called Daniel Alexander will do. He makes nice beats. He sings a nice song. We imagine he’s got a pretty face as well, but we can’t see it through the super ambient nature of the featured image of the guy, which to be honest isn’t really helping our already-blurred vision. Anyway, based on the limited amount of bits and/or bobs available online, we’re gonna have to try to get all Sherlock about this. Musically, this guy sounds like he’s nailing the producery-singer-songwritery thingy pretty well. You know what we’re on about. The thingy! Like James Blake, Chet Faker, and Jack Garratt. Shit, based on this guy’s name, he sounds like he already hangs out with all three of the aforementioned already. We’ve also seen the word Breton bounded about somewhere. We used to listen to those guys in 2008/2009ish. This guy sounds a bit like their guy. Is it the same guy? Dunno guy. Anyway, guy, play some shows please so we can come see you.
