i’m told it’s everything a man could want and i shouldn’t complain

i’m going to direct you all over here where you should proceed to shower our very own Ailbhe (bottom right, above) and the Analogue magazine team with presents and sloppy kisses. really really sloppy. they picked up the People’s Choice Award at the Student Media Awards. CZECH OUT THAT GLASS GLOBE!
in other news i’ve finally accepted The Raconteurs new album, Consolers of the Lonely, and can begin frantically recommending it to everyone i know. i’ve developed an inability to trust my own opinion when listening to an album for the first time. it may stem from my initial disappointment with The Cribs latest release. i just felt it was somewhat repetitive. none of the tracks really jumped out at me. that was until i realised that i’d had the first song on repeat for about half an hour. yes. anyway i knew it was only a matter of time before i would get hooked on Consolers of the Lonely considering the unconditional love i have for Brendan Benson and co…but mostly Brendan. highlights for me include Carolina Drama, i love a good story, and Many Shades of Black on which the always endearing Benson demonstrates his ability to rhyme ‘door’ with ‘floor’. sure he’s only marvellous. i bet he could make a killer triangular sandwich.
