Villagers / my latest crush

Villagers are awesome. I should really write more than that but really that's all you need to know. Listen to some of their music if you don't believe me.

award winning title track of album 1
From the new album:

Ok, if you want more information... In actual fact I wasn't that keen on their first album. Becoming a Jackal (amazing title) was good but didn't really grab me. {awayland} how ever had me hooked. I think that's partly because it's a little less depressing.  
"When you're younger you sort of romanticise sadness and then when you experience shit you think 'I don't want to wallow in that'"
I read that Conor's (the singer and songwriter of Villagers) sister died after the release of Jackal, and I can understand where he's coming from with that.
I saw them at Brixton Electric last month and the songs are even better live. There's not much chat but the songs are very like Irish story telling so you don't miss that, it…

Doctor calls time (punable news)

So it's over. Matt Smith I think you've become my favourite Doctor, but then David was before you so fingers crossed this new one's going to be at least as good.

My dad used to have old Doctor Who re-runs on the telly at the weekend when I was little. I thought it was all a bit naff. I vaguely remember McCoy from when I was a child but have no idea if I liked it or not. My first Doctor was McGann. The movie version was a good one and closer to the reboot in many ways.  Dad and I even cracked out the video before the Master came back.

Anyway. Matt Smith. I have a crush on you now, not just the doctor so I'm sure I be able to see you on screen again soon. It's just a bit sad you won't be the sweet, crazy raggedy man we've come to love. 

Tennant, I still love you too. You would have the edge but your assistants were just not as cool as Amy and Rory.
