...has surely already tied up the PFA Player of the Year Award this year, Glasgow's Sons and Daughters have run away with the 'Joe's middle-ranking indie band single of the year' award with 'This Gift'. There's no video for it on Youtube yet, but you can hear it on their Myspace player. The album's pretty good as well, but the single- I can't even begin. Further to what I was saying about Prolapse a few weeks ago, this is what indie guitar music should sound like, not just some twattish schoolboys wearing skinny jeans and affecting cockney accents to sing yet another half=arsed ditty about going to moderately sleazy discos. Full marks for sounding like a countrified Stereolab too, and a pleasing hint of MBV in there. In fact, this is, for my money, the best middle-ranking indie band single since The Duke Spirit's 'Love is an Unfamiliar Name' a few years back. Champion, like.
