This week I'd be lying if I said that I'd been keeping my ear that close to the ground with regards to new tunes hitting the web. Most of my listening has revolved around the latest albums from Johnny Foreigner and Los Campesinos!, neither of which am I coming anywhere near tiring of.
Still, even with that, interviews and potentially arranging another move some new stuff has trickled through. Although to be fair you'd have to be living under a rock to have missed the fact that Pulled Apart By Horses have unleashed a new number.
But as riotous as that is, it's 'That Kind Of Girl' by Plymouth based singer-songwriter/fuzz-popster Gorgeous Bully that has made most impact at KPL Towers. The name rung a bell after he appeared on the excellent map compilation Dry Route To Devon that Art Is Hard Records released in September. And like 'I Think' this newbie is an excellent hazy pop gem. Although where that one begged to be tagged with 'surf pop' and 'nostalgia' this one feels as though its inception involved listening to some very old country records. (Always a worthwhile past-time for my money)
The end result however is lo-fi blog pop of the best kind. And testament to the Art Is Hard team for bringing Gorgeous Bully to my attention in the first place. (And a timely reminder to pick up the aforementioned map). A talent worth keeping an eye on.
If you like what you hear - and why wouldn't you - you can download more Gorgeous Bully material from his Soundcloud page.
