“He loves you with that everlasting love. True love.” – Donna Hayward, Fire Walk With Me.
Though Valentine’s Day is consigned once more to its annual past, love’s lamentations have not yet been lost this year. Yes, courtesy of Trashmouth Records we have this hard-edged innocence by Lewis Idle, New Malden’s mysterious and felt tip pen-wielding balladeer who, 13-seconds in, had me lit up like it was the first day of Summer. As the title suggests, The Night We Almost Fell In Love is nostalgic, but in both senses; a tale of missed opportunity with ‘50s-era sensibilities and sonic style updated by thundering guitar punctuations. Sounds like: The Jesus And Mary Chain crooned a $5 shake for my ears. And so, 2014 may very well not see romantic regret pitched in such authentic derivation again, but that’s something we can lament next year, along with this year’s lost loves.

It’s a beautiful day in London today, and I recommend an audio garnish of Medicine 8’s suitably uplifting remix of their own recent signing, Glass Diamond. Courtesy of the London-based duo’s Trashmouth Records and available as a digital-only release on June 3rd, Girls & Boys is doubtless the sweetest Disco-infused portent of Summer you’re likely to hear. Please enjoy irresponsibly.
