The same friend who helped me discover Jenny Lewis (see last post), reminded me of another band who I really fell in love with, despite never hearing a whole lot of their stuff. Kent’s GoodBooks make wonderfully swirling, soaring songs, peppered with electronic effects and tasty, tasty reverb.
I first heard their song Leni on XFM (London’s best music station – fact) and, despite needing to get to the bus in the morning, I had to stay until the end to find out who was making this amazing noise. Now, having been reminded of just how much I loved this song (and their most successful single, Passchendaele), I’m going to go and hunt down their debut album, Control. Take a listen and see if you agree with me!
