Patchy as hell and really derivative in places (REM’s New Adventures In Hi-Fi is an obvious touchstone) but my god, when Idlewild get it right… the title track and the final two tracks, Once In Your Life and Finished It Remains, are mighty. Finished… in particular is utter, utter genius.

And I’m going to see them playing in Oxford on Saturday. Ha!
Forgot to mention this earlier: They’re going to be on the Gideon Coe show / Hub session tonight (Wed 14 Mar) on BBC 6 Music.
Needs a DAB radio, alternatively I think you can also listen over the web.
Thanks Armin. Enjoy the gig.
