Give us something pretty”, you cried. “We want something gorgeous and we want it now.”
I didn’t appreciate your demanding tone but the only thing I hate more than a sense of over-entitlement is your disappointed face, so I logged on to the world wide web online and I came across this little gem, a Sydney gent who flies by the name Mammals. Guy has this For Emma, Forever Ago thing going on that works a real treat for a pair of sore ears and tired eyes. ‘Carried’ is the most recent of his singles and available to you as a free download. I must’ve listened to this and the rest of the pearls you can hear via his bandcamp dozens of times now with still no end in sight. A true pleasure. Mammals was a recent finalist in FBi’s Northern Lights competition so if you’re interested in bragging rights then you’d probably best get on this before the rest of the world does. Attention is already being paid. Enjoy.
