The Darling Buds have been around, on-and-off, for long enough that their last release was a Peel Session. Twenty-five years and a number of gigs later, they’ve recorded this short-but-sweet four-track EP, which simply bursts with indie pop joy. Evergreen is a 10” EP released on the Odd Box label, limited to an edition of 500 copies.

Though there's no actual point in a the Darling Buds album in 2017 I'm not going to try to stop a few Welsh people having fun. They are just doing it for a laugh these days and I'm sure they have a right good time at Indietracks. Is there any harm done?
Thing is though 'Evergreen' has a right good old pop chorus and I find myself enjoying it somewhat. For the uninitiated the Darling Buds made sweet indie pop that had something of Lush at their poppiest but were much more straightforward and indie chart ready. They were always a bit more commercially aligned than the indie-pop groups with a tougher guitar sound that eschewed jangle for rock riffs. Alas this sound hasn't dated as well as their jangling cousins but it is what it is - straightforward indie guitar music with the odd good hook. Lamacq will play it won't he?
Also as a side note the artwork is by Julian House the honcho of Ghost Box so if you like his work you might want to buy it for the sleeve.
