Right. I haven’t featured any music for a while. So what is on my stereo o o o ooooo. Well. Here are my highly recommended tracks for April. Setting up for the summer – which I’m predicting will be a scorcher.. for one day at least… here is ohDearyme’s music nuse. News. NeWs…

We’ve featured the Patrick James Pearson band on ohDearyme before and we’re huge fans! Which is why they are featuring again.. I’m happy to announce that they’ve been working on their debut album ‘And So It Goes’– due for release on the 3rd June. Here is their new track ‘Vicious Luck’ which will be released through Ouf Records:

…who are Swedish super-duo David Lehnberg and Elin Lindfors. Due to release their album entitled ‘The Archer Trilogy PT.3’ on 27th May via The Control Group here is their upbeat dancey track entitled ‘Lazarus’. With eerie underlying dark tones to compliment they’re definitely ones to watch… FREE DOWNLOAD:

Is that an elf I can see…?

So if you ever need a triangle player guys. I’m sure I could learn..

And last not least! Suns! Hailing from East London and led by Michael Tyrrell..  I suspect that whilst currently still mainly on the underground scene it won’t be long before they make a sharp peak UP

STYLE TIP: Triangles are in fashion this season. Anything will a triangle on it will get you in.

Which I’m happy about, because I’ve never really liked circles.

 Picture Ben Oakley ‘Nearly Buffed’

It was an ordinary day. No different to any other. I was walking through Greenwich when I stopped in my tracks. Usually I find nothing more intimidating than being in a small shop or gallery. Just me…and the shopkeeper/owner. But I found the visual attraction too great and my sense of self awareness seemed to dissipate as I curiously wandered into Ben Oakley’s Art Gallery. Camera phone in hand I had gone into auto pilot….

And then just like that my imagination bubble was interrupted as my friend shouted me from the gallery door…‘Becks Becks…come here…look look…’

I ran out of the gallery after her…‘What what?’ I exclaimed…looking around. Was it a bird?! Was it a plane! No… no it was a celebrity. Sat in the distance eating their lunch (chips actually. Yes I was almost as shocked as you. Don’t get me wrong..I’m not sneering at the opportunity to watch a celeb eat..). I darted back in to the gallery suddenly alert of our rudeness, apologetic to the gallery owner (whom I now know as Ben Oakley) as I became aware of our intrusive and childish running about. All over the shop. That excitement of discovery – whilst the opportunity is there.. doesn’t happen everyday.
