For all your listening pleasure today, or tomorrow – the day that happens only every 4 years – anybody who has a birthday tomorrow, happy birthday x 4! I was never a big fan of Ride – only saw them for the first time a few years ago after their comeback – thought they were great live. Even though their music lends to that shoegazing vibe – sulky and undeserving, they seemed to be having a fun time on stage. And the first track on this list came through random play on spotify – and by Jaybus it’s a belter. As for Kate Tempest – everyone should listen to her if only at least once. Whether you get the music or not, the soul of it, the style, the nuance – whatever – there is a message in their that can be understood universally. She is an artist of our times and I can only see her going from strength to strength. Get your earholes wrapped around it all – at once! – while baking a cake. Enjoy!
