NewDad – I Don't Recognise You
There are a whole bunch of bands I love from that time that I could choose. Aztec Camera, Orange Juice, Josef K, all that. I just couldn't pick one to represent them all. Thing is, I'm always looking for the next thing. Yesterday I found ten new tracks from ten bands I'd not heard of. I want one of the tracks to be one I am deeply in love with just now.

Ah sod it, I'm going for NewDad, 'I Don't Recognise You'. They are from Galway and I heard this single about three weeks ago and I cannot get through half a day without listening to it. Cannot. Impossible. The words, beautiful, the song, beautiful, I might not love any of their songs again, but I suspect I will.

There's a whole new bunch of Welsh bands I love right now, too, like Sister Wives, great stuff, you should check them out.
