URN Playlist – 12th May 2008

Alex and I were back for another week, as Toby decided he’d prefer to see Jens Lekman play Rescue Rooms that evening than come into the studio. We’d both seen Jens play earlier in the afternoon at Lee Rosy’s Tea Rooms, a short set that was fantastically mesmerising. He may be badly receding but the man has a gorgeous voice and can’t half tell a story (even if said stories told are much the same as the last tour, and the one before that….). Nothing beats a cup of tea and a fun secret gig to overcome examination stress. That said, nor does an afternoon in the pub drinking Budvar Dark…

Congratulations to Paul, who correctly texted in to identify the promo blurb for being Feeder’s new single. Don’t worry, we didn’t play it, just lovingly mocked the lengthy spiel. Toby and Alex will be back next week. If you’re curious, we played:
