Spain

Hey everyone, we’re so excited to be heading over to Spain next month for some shows. It seems ages since we’ve tasted those sweet almendras with manchego, the pisto and paella.. Of COURSE, we’re not just excited by the food. We’re really looking forward to playing tracks from the new record to our Spanish fans. We’re also really looking excited to catch up with Pablo from our great Spanish label ‘Rock Indiana’. He is one of the coolest and kindest guys you could ever wish to meet.

I hope some of you may be able to make the shows.

Brendan Benson

Brendan Benson at Koko. It rocked!

Hey all, went to see Brendan Benson last night and he was fantastic! For those who don’t know who he is, you should really check him out on Spotify.

He played loads of the best of his songs (he has a lot to choose from) and ended with a great cover of ‘Listen To Her Heart’ by Tom Petty.

Wierdly enough me and Brendan share a birthday. Perhaps we should have a joint party next year and both play.

What do you think?

Have a great weekend

Owl City

Hey all, it’s Jez here. I’ve just been listening to the Owl City album and wondered what you all thought of it out in Farrah land? I’m pretty sure only Farrah and Owl City have both written songs about dentistry (ours was called Famous Dentist) and a few people have said his stuff is similar to ours. I can’t really hear it that much myself. I liked the Fireflies single but the vocal FX on his voice all the way through the record started annoying me after a while. What the record does remind me of, is some Japanese J Pop (especially the sounds on Perfume’s last record) as well as the Postal Service, which many people are comparing it to.

Do you think it sounds like Farrah? Is it one of your favourite records? Drop a comment in if you have an opinion either way.

best to you all!
