Hello. I hate August. Really really hate August. I used to think it was SAD but then I realised that I was just sad in general, and August was just particularly awful. I have finally managed to buy a CD burner, and by the luck of promo CDs, people in high places, and skilful manipulation of myspace, I've built a mix from this August to take into the next one. Personal favourites from here are the Cyndi Lauper track, which is basically Kleerup's Thank You For Nothing, with her vocals on top, the Los Campesinos track was sent to me by Tom Campesinos himself through the post and is probably the best thing they've done to date. I also love the Deer Tick and the Tallest Man on Earth tracks, which sound quite similar to untrained ears, but are two of the best modern folk songs I've heard in ages. And August wouldn't be August without the maudlin Scots (Glasvegas and Frightened Rabbit). Lovely.
