Yup already I haz my favourite song of 2010 – it’s the first single ‘Getting Better’ from Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s forthcoming album ‘The Logic of Chance’ released in March.
Here’s the album version (Link removed at request of the band’s manager – see comments for my response about how I think this is a little myopic) and the Villa remix of ‘Getting Better’ (ditto) which has leaked out (officially?) last week via Too Many Sebastians; go buy it when it’s released in March 1st on Sunday Best.
I love the lyrics and positive message – ‘there are other choices if you want them, you don’t have to toe the line and float with the flotsam, you can fill your time better when you get a passion, the internet and public services give free education, it really ain’t a case of rich or poor…the system might fail you but don’t fail yourself – get better!’
If this is a good sampler of the new album it’ll be a good follow up to Angles, which I just bought on US import with the free individually sprayed 7″ on Strange Famous (Sage Francis’s label) and as a nice touch they also sent me a copy of Reanimator’s first LP.
Yes I’m a whore and easily bought with freebies!…Nah I love Scroobius Pip vs Dan Le Sac and highly recommend them to everyone – but freebies help 😉 Although I hope that Pip bloke has moved on from the baseball caps – this is why I moved onto top hats and other hats. He stole my style!
And I’m already seeing them at the warmup at the now-sold-out Borderline on the 27th of January…squeee!
