Now just to preface this post, I had no part in finding this band, but whilst reading the wonderful 100b blog recently, they featured the one and only track from new London five-piece La Shark. and, just like them, I know next to nothing about them (I’m not even sure the picture is of them, but it’s from their Myspace page). Their song Bones is really worth posting about again. The quality of the recording is questionable, but the overlapping vocals and squeals of “I don’t know what to do!” always beguile me as soon as I hear them. They seem to possess some of that rare endearing weirdness of The Coral at their best, and with the instrumentation seeming to act as a perfect frame for the vocals, I’m sure it’ll stay in rotation on my iPod for quite some time.
