Back in Time

The Quiff is back. This  month’s mix is feeling pretty pleased with itself and to celebrate here’s a couple of baby-kissing, crime-solving, kung-fu fighting bundles of musical loveliness.

Firstly, there’s urgent melancholy. One lad from Sheffield and another from Leicester pass by us like ghosts. They rumble like passing traffic, like things lost in the endless seeking of the unknown. For Kidnap Kid and Leo Stannard the only sadness is when we stop moving:

From the other end of the globe (well, Texas) and the other end of the spectrum comes Tre Houston. ‘Hey, I’m not gonna talk about anything serious’ is his opening gambit and doesn’t get any less fun from there on in. This is a song to sway drunkenly to; a whisper working it’s way around the corners of a house party; music you spend hungover days trying to put your finger on. Basically, it’s fucking excellent:

This track is going to be on his new Tramzilla EP which I’m pretty damn excited about. Amuse yourself in the interim with this month’s Quiff, which is full of excellence I’ll be bugging you about for the next few weeks:
