Recently I discovered a certain site called Urban Outfitters. Laugh as you might at my tragic hitherto ignorance, Urban Outfitters it transpires is musically more hip than a rhythmic pelvis.

On first impressions, UO appears nothing more than your run of the mill clothes shop. However, rummage deeper in the Urban Outfitters wardrobe and you will find a Narnia of eclectic music features. Included in this haven are downloadable LSTN playlists, 5 free songs from Music Mondays and, the ultimate ear-pleaser, UO Radio. 

Below is my highlight of LSTN 16

Devin

You’re Mine has underlying tones of, well, The Undertones as it goes.

Water-absorbant tents, clodhopper wellies, obscure flags and mudbaths galore. Yes, the summer festival season is in full swing and the crappy British weather cannot even begin to dampen our enthusiasm.
