The Kooks - Around Town

I thought the last Kooks song was interesting, this one has me wanting to hear it again but I can't put my finger on it. Must be the strange combination of them and a soul choir. Check it out on the video above, taken from when they were on Alan Carr's show, it's pretty good and goes well with "What Makes A Good Man" that was featured on this blog a month or so ago.

Fight Like Apes

Fight Like Apes have recently made it in to my Top 25 Most Played for the great pop single "I'm Beginning To Think..." (my four year old daughter also likes the track) and yet I didn't put two and two together when this track popped in to my inbox. You can certainly see their progression from "I'm Beginning..." through "Jenny Kelly" and Crouching Bees is not a million miles from either. Check it out, they're on a short tour at the moment (dates below) backing up the release of the track on a four track EP called Whigfield Sextape. They hit Bristol on the Monday the 12th, the day the EP comes out.
