May Top Five

Normally I do my Top Ten posts in the first day or two of the month looking back at the previous four weeks, but as you’ve probably noticed, I’m a bit late. You might have also noticed it’s just a top five this month too. There’s a good reason for the reduced nature of this post and me going a little bit quiet on the blog for the past couple of weeks – at the start of June I became a dad, which has given me something else to look after other than the blog. So while our newest writer catches a few minutes of shut-eye, hopefully I can squeeze out an overdue post of the tracks we enjoyed the most from May.

1) Milk & BiscuitsTowns are Concrete Holes

Brighton’s best kraut-pop band are back and sounding amazing. And that video. Lovely stuff.

3) Sam OrganMirrors

One third of Physics House Band drops his Mount Bank moniker to make a lovely electronica instrumental

4) MomotaroOrchids

Taken from their new EP Highest, Orchids shows that their Second Side album wasn’t just a flash in the pan.

5) Lion BarkYou and Me
