Allo Darlin - Dreaming (Fortuna Pop!)
There seems to have come a point when as soon as Elizabeth Morris opens her mouth, this wonderful pop song emerges. I'm sure you remember 'Henry Rollins Don't Dance' and 'The Polaroid Song' from last year, well, if anything, this tops them. It's beautiful, swooping pop music that starts off like The Drums' 'Let's Go Surfin', before gliding into this kind of cuddly, sad song that you sort of brings back memories of lying on your back on some grass in the summer and staring at the sky. It's enhanced by the kind of baritone from Monster Bobby from The Pipettes that is so low that it'll probably burst your testicles (or testicles substitute for the vegetarians and ladies in the audience) if you play it loud enough. Recommended so hard.
