Two more days till pay day

And in anticipation, I went record shopping, and finally got hold of Lions by Jonquil. Since early this afternoon, it’s been on constant repeat. Yes, Sunny Casinos was great, but by the time that came out Jonquil were already playing the more song based tracks that make up Lions, AND they made us wait a whole year for the album as well. But, blimey, is it worth the wait.

I first listened to the entire album in full on a walk around Regent’s Park, and it was perfect. The harmonies and dense layers in Lily and Pencil, Paper were a glorious soundtrack for strolling through the fallen leaves and autumnal colours. While the simple, joyous songs like Sudden Sun and Whistle Low just made the sun appear to shine that much brighter. And of course, there’s the untitled track leading up to Lions which is perfect for whatever time or season.
