5. Fall In A Bad Kind Of Love With Jeremy Tuplin

We’ve long been fans of Somerset’s finest musical son, Jeremy Tuplin.  His most recent album, I Dreamt I Was An Astronaut, was a fabulous collection of articulate folk; songs about space for people with broken hearts. He recently showed a different direction with climate change bating single, Long Hot Summer, and it’s one he continued this week with the excellent Bad Lover, the latest taste of his upcoming album, Pink Mirror.

They’ve just dropped this new single and already I feel so relaxed I don’t mind that the temperatures here are higher than they should be. Well, fine, we’ll have to live with that. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
