Nice But Dim?

Apologies for the sparsity of updates for the last week or so, although the good news is that this has principally been due to a lot of gigging activity, so you can expect some reviews over the next few days of some of today's hottest up 'n' comin' pop sensations, as well as an overview of last weekend's Dot To Dot Festival in Bristol.

To keep you going 'til then, one of the best bands at Dot to Dot were London's Red Light Company whose debut ep 'With Lights Out' is out on limited CD and 7" as of this week. The title track isn't as gloomy as it sounds, despite being about a childhood friend of the singer who committed suicide, and is in fact a stirring, soaring guitar-pop gem of the highest order, one of our very favourite songs of this increasingly good year, and easily qualifying as Parallax View Single Of The Week. They may be called Red Light Company, but there's no stopping 'em now...
