I rattled on last week about The Leisure Society so I won't repeat the whole tale but here is the re-issue of their debut album 'The Sleeper' which is back out on Full Time Hobby with better distribution and mountains of press to come i'm sure. If you didn't buy the record when it first came out then I'd heartily recommend it to anyone who likes Sufjan Stevens, early Badly Drawn Boy, Love, Belle and Sebastien, Nick Drake. Its folky loveliness that will go down well with a beard and a pint of real ale on an autumn sunday. Superb songwriting especially on 'The Last of the Winter Snow' - a depiction of the end of a relationship that reduced this old softy to tears when I first heard it. 'A Short Weekend Begins with Longing' is another monumentally good effort, banjo's pluck and strings weep while the lyrics perfectly capture that moment where you see time stretching out and not much to fill it. To be fair the record is all good and I can't recommend it highly enough. The only slight disappointment the EP that comes with the new version of the album that doesn't quite live up to its parent record - being a bit clunky lyrically and musically nowhere near the quality we've become used to. That said its a bonus thing, separate to the album so no harm done really. The vinyl has both records as well and the first few come with signed (presumably by the band) posters.
