Right, back at work, a fresh day, all toasted and tea'd up. I'll begin with White Rabbits and a CD album on Fierce Panda named 'Fort Nightly'. I was immediately endeared to this rollicking album the minute I walked through the door. It's got that grace, class & power that you get from seasoned New York bands. A melting pot of styles, you get stately yet fun pop rock with piano florishes that reminds me slightly of my faves The Walkmen but much less booze addled. I hate to say it but they sound really accomplished, taking in light carribean touches, 70s AOR (in a 10cc/Field Music fashion) and a fresh, euphoria packed attitude to timeless alt rock. I can hear hints of everything from Arcade Fire, Keane, The Beatles & Dismemberment Plan as these classic, addictive & multi faceted tunes glide by, caressing your ears. Best thing i've heard on Fierce Panda for yonks!!!!!
