Love Letters

There just aren’t enough people with curly hair these days so good on Metronomy main-man Joseph Mount for battling ahead and sticking one in the eye of the straight hairs. I had no idea of his potential hair handicap when a rollocking Northern Soul tune came on the wireless the other day. I hurtled into the kitchen like a whip to f...view item »

First time on vinyl from this pre...view item »
