You’d nearly forget The Temper Trap actually made an album with the constant play that ‘Sweet Disposition‘ got, but happily it looks like their next single is my favourite from their album ‘Love Lost‘. I’m just after stumbling across the video for it, not what you’d except but totally charming.

Friday, 30th April sees the release of Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle. Oh ya, and Samuel L. Jackson. Phew!
While it is the sequel to a very good comic book movie, it also features a full soundtrack from AC/DC. Now that is something to get excited about!
Oxford band Stornoway were in Crawdaddy on Friday night, and a couple of The Clink were down there to sample some of the vibes.
News has hit me that LCD Soundsystem are streaming their new album, This Is Happening.
This week’s Weekend Tunage comes from Neon Indian aka Alan Palomo, and is produced by Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear. I’ve listened to this loads in the last few weeks and thought it was time to share the electric love. It’s starts off sounding like a cat running back and forward across an electric piano but then suddenly bursts into life with one of the catchiest electronic backing sounds I’ve heard in ages. It’s quite a dreamy chilled track too, which makes it perfect for a Friday and a sunny Friday at that.
Times like this I wish I was back in Ireland for a bit – with the start of all the festival announcements out of the way there seems to be a lot of good standalone gigs coming up in the coming few months also.

I’d have given my right or left arm for tickets to their live show in Toronto last night, but it was totally sold out. Oh well, until next time! This video kinda makes up for it tho, the first from their just released album Big Echo.
