I've limited myself to 3-4 listens of the new tracks and love each one. Not going to listen to them again until the album is out but it's shaping up to be something pretty special.

Yeah I absolutely rinsed TSODITD when it came out so have been careful to not do the same with the other two songs as tempting as it is. Think I've only listened to Guilty Party once so that ones still gonna come as a bit of a surprise to me.

I hadn't listened to the first single since Glastonbury until yesterday but it's still so good, strong contender for song of the year so far. Haven't listened to Guilty Party too much but I've had the new one on loads, really like it. I'm mainly looking forward to the tour at the moment, going to be such a strong setlist.

Saw them in Copenhagen on Saturday at Aaron and Bryce Dessner's festival. Was magnificent. Lots of guests on stage (Bon Iver, This is the Kit, some Icelandic performance artist). Solid show. Fun festival.

1. High Violet

2. Alligator

3. Boxer

4. Trouble Will Find Me

Ranking the albums is tough. Putting together their five best songs is near impossible, but in no particular order:

Terrible Love

Fake Empire

England

About Today

All The Wine

I checked with This Is The Kit at Green Man to see if she's supporting Manchester and she says no, London guys get there EARLY to see the set though because the one I saw there was astonishing stuff. Get everybody to stfu as well, every London gig I've been to has had loud talkers, and that will not do at all.

Really wondering who is doing Manchester support, seems to be very last minute now.

Yeah they did nothing for me last time around. I'm working nearby though so will probably get there nice and early.

Why I oughtta...

Mountain Stage or Rough Trade tent? I was working for the Mountain Stage set and only caught their Rough Trade set. One of my very very few gripes with Green Man is that a lot which would be amazing on Walled Garden gets lost on the Mountain stage.

Yeah it was the mountain one, not a bad arena but the chair crowd are possibly worse than at the pyramid. The band were ok but probably a difficult spot for them.
