Daily Roundup: Sunday 7th September 2008

So, we’ve been back from Hydro Connect for almost a week, and have just finished our coverage of this year’s event. Wander on over to have a look if you want to have a look at the pictures and read what we thought, why not wander on over to our review and have a look through our pictures and stuff. Unfortunately though since getting back down south we’ve had a pretty hectic week, working close to 40 hours, which has meant TGTF has been pushed to the side as we focus on work.

I was sent some PR for a new boy-band, going by the name of Avenue earlier this week. Amazingly catchy, they’re like a McFly / Blue / Take That crossover act, bit more dancy but a pretty darned good new guilty-pleasure band. I wouldn’t be suprised if they end up doing arena tours this time next year, knowing that they have the same people behind them as The Feeling, Sugababes and Mika all do. Their debut single, Last Goodbye is out now, so when you’ve had enough of reading about Bloc Party, The National, Idlewild and Ben Folds over here why not check them out?

Stumbled across a great small blog earlier this week, Music To Die For, which features some interesting “best of” lists, including the 50 top tunes from Scotland, many of the tunes of which coincidentally made up our soundtrack to last weekend in Scotland.

For those of you wanting some visual stuff, then why not check out Delays doing Friends are False (their new single) as a session for Yahoo, or Friendly Fires’ video for Jump in the Pool, complete with syncronised swimmers. Finally, if you’re American (or just have a tiny interest in US politics), then why not check out this advert Barack Obama put out, soundtracked by The National’s Fake Empire.
