10th August new arrivals

New records in the post thanks to the good folk of Norman Records where you should get all your favourite vinyl (or Banquet Records, if you need things from the punk rock end).

PRIESTS - The Seduction of Kansas (Sister Polygon Records). I wrote about Priests a while back in Little Achievements, when I wrote “I love the way the ways in which they fall short of being a rock band” and listening to the record, with a lyric sheet in hand, is another brilliant way to experience them where you get the full force of their strange, creative images and pop culture references from another planet. Top lyric so far is “Like all great pornography, this story is touching. It’s something I wanna see for Good Time Charlie.”

Hi guys there’s this new band I’ve discovered. They’re called Vampire Weekend and you’ve probably not heard of them.
