Now that summer is well and truly here in Blighty (well for now anyway), appropriate mood music is required:

Faded Seaside Glamour by Delays. This is a great album from a band not dissimilar in sound to a cross between The La’s and The Byrds: particular highlights for me include Long Time Coming and Stay Where You Are.

Continuing the summer theme, I have to recommend Scissor Sisters’ eponymous debut: splendid, although Pink Floyd purists may not take to the gloriously camp rendering of Comfortably Numb!
