Dear funk brothers and sisters,
Another month has raced by as the Quiff has burrowed away in search of new musical delights. May’s mix embraces returning heroes Big Thief, Kate Tempest and Andrew Bird before being drawn onward by some new and beautiful faces. “Inventory” from the latest EP by Brighton’s Nature TV is a warm and soulful pop cuddle, like pulling on an old scarf the smell of cinnamon and dry wood fragrant in its weave. Leeds based Crake bring graceful, unsettling melancholy to the fore on “Glycerin”, a song that lulls you in with its distant ferocity. Chesterfield’s Holly Redford Jones has been writing songs since school and unleashes her charming, bluesy swagger on second single “Bonjour Madame”. Definitely one to watch. After a long absence Harlem have got back together and released the sweeping, mellow elegance of “Queen of Mosquitos”. Mike Coomer’s side-project Lace Curtains is a long-time Quiff favourite and it’s great to have him back with Harlem.
The Quiff could go on rambling, but you’re probably ready to listen to some songs.
