Episode 356

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 356

Elephant - Allured/Actors (Memphis Industries, 2011)

This episode featured Allured by Elephant. It's the second single form the Anglo/French duo of Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck the follow up to Ants which was released back in January. They're been making music since meeting back in May 2010 and Allured is a fantastic track. 

This episode also featured A Woman, A Woman, A Century of Sleep, one of the stand-out tracks from Emmy the Great's latest album Virtue

And finally a classic from Jessica Griffin's Wood-Be-Goods. The Camera Loves Me is the title track from the band's debut album released by él Records in 1988. The Wood-Be-Goods in 1988 was Jessica backed by The Monochrome Set. Very much of its time but still sounding absolutlely brilliant to me.

"Another gin and tonic and I'm yours for sure
They never took my phototgraph like this before!
My single lens reflex is a little bit slow
I'll put another film in and we'll give it a go"
