The four tracks under the title Plug And Play are a collection of live recordings.

Sunday morning as I type and these make for a set of songs that ideally suit the moment.

Although it has been almost exactly four years since they last featured – Off Orbit are instantly recognisable and from the eclectic mix on Plug And Play – my selection is the dub influenced Little B.

The Magic Es – Running Scared – Single Review

The English alt-rock band The Magic Es will be releasing the single Running Scared early in 2017.

In advance of the recorded track they have made available a live version of the song, which once again finds the listener checking that there isn’t an excavator drilling in to the building foundations. Turn up the volume and hit play to enjoy free-running rock as it should be displayed.

I am sure I am not the only one of us who is thinking – why bother with a studio recording as it is unlikely to top this gritty performance other than to fluff-up the earthy realism that makes this the song that it is for the way it currently stands? But I also realise there are folk who like their music to come with neatly ironed creases – we shall discover in  due whether this is the recording that will surface as the official release or if a Studio version will be the replacement.
