Monday morning blues? Yeah, us too. Still, let The ADN Project provide that all important silver lining with a shiny new episode, packed to the rafters with fresh new music, delightfully (?) ramshackle features and penetrating commentary (Ok, that was a lie), all brought to you by the usual suspects. Get your lug'oles around it here:
As ever, we've got more gift wrapped ear candy on hand than Zane Lowe's iPod. Neon Indian kick things off with 'the Grange Hill theme tune on acid', The Soft Pack provide a healthy slice of DIY indie rock, Matthew Dear remixes everyone's new favourite band The XX (inevitably glorious) and Roots Manuva teams up with The Maccabees for what surely must rank as oddest collaboration of the year. Chuck in tracks from the Vampire Weekend supporting Fan Death, beardy purveyors of folky Americana The Avett Brothers, indie experimentalists Royal Bangs and not-so-pretentious pop noir upstarts Mirrors, and you've got yourself one very healthy set of tunes.
In amongst the music you'll find features aplenty; Alex's Argos Intros returns in the face of overwhelming public demand, Christian says Yea(sayer) to album of the week and, as always, the gig guide is on hand to provide yet more shambolic live music-related tomfoolery.
Please enjoy responsibly.
