Paperface – Amsterdam (from the album Out of time, Daydream Records)

A few other short cuts before the end of the month.

Wonderfully wry orchestral pop from a slightly mysterious figure who works out of a studio in an abandoned lighthouse apparently.

There’s a hint of the majesty of Blur’s heyday, kitchen sink drama in sweeping cinemascope but rooted in the vernacular.

And delighted to be free
Ordered two more large whiskeys
Thanked our hostess very much
And descended on the Dutch


In this case a lads’ trip to Amsterdam provides the plot. And more than a touch of The Beach Boys in the glorious swooping backing vocals.

It’s got a real touch of class, this.
