Something for the weekend: Great Lakes “The Pinks and the Purples”

That’s it from us for this week dear reader, and we leave you today not with a new song but a veritable stone-cold classic from 2006 which we received in those heady days to review here at AUK – sometimes the first track off an album can blow you away in a way you never quite recover from. This is one such occasion. Emma Brockes wrote a piece in The Guardian yesterday about tracks that you can come unfathomably obsessed with and the way that once you’ve squeezed the lifeblood out of them, they’re never quite the same, but somehow this whole album from the band Great Lakes led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Ben Crum has never got old. Just listen to those incredible first few notes. Diamond times indeed. Have a good one.
