Sweet Baboo - You Got Me Time Keeping

As you should know by now Sweet Baboo's new album, "The Boombox Ballads" is out in August on Moshi Moshi Records. After letting us hear 'Sometimes' and 'Got To Hang On To You' we now have a video for 'You've Got Me Time Keeping'. The song manages to pack a fair bit in in 6 minutes, there's a nice mix of catchy pop with boy/girl vocals (Tender Prey guesting), upbeat brass, some mournful strings before a darker string-led middle section followed by an almost trippy synth ending. Watch below:

Video directed by Mark James and filmed by Ryan Owen Eddleston

TDMTLTUT #88 - John Hegley - Eddie Don't Like Furniture

On this edition of "They Don't Make Them Like They Used To" I've gone for John Hegley who is a hard man to categorise. Hegley's a comedian, a poet, a writer (his last three books have potatoes in the title), a musician and a songwriter. He's been going thirty years but only came to my attention in the last few years sadly, when I saw him on the Stewart Lee led "The Alternative Comedy Experience" on Comedy Central where he played this gem which originally appeared on the album "Saint and Blurry" which is a mix of songs and poetry.

Feel free to listen to Hegley in conversation with Sean Hughes on his "Under The Radar" podcast.
