five years time

Ugh, completely tied up with flat-move nonsense and heat-exhaustion at the moment, hence the lack of crdible blogging; apologies. In the meantime, just to keep things ticking over, I thought I'd post the cool video to my favourite song right now; Noah & The Whale's ukulele-tastic 'Five Years Time'. Love it.

Great tune, cool video. I saw them live at Latitude - reminded me quite a bit of They Might Be Giants, with perhaps a little dash of Beirut. Interesting combination.

Hey Rowan,

Yep, it's a lovely song. I've not managed to see them live yet but I grabbed the album the other day and it's awesome - some quite dramatic, moving songs to counterbalance the light-heartedness elsewhere.

Looking forward to seeing them at End of the Road.

I thought that was Laura Marling... Are these guys her backing band?

ha ha - it is a little twee, I admit. But I like it, so there :-)

I think Marling is backed by (the even better) Mumford and Sons, but Charlie from N&TW produced her solo record and I think she's always been a member of his band, although probably on a more occasional basis these days now that she's so successful.
