The Lovely Eggs are one of those bands I’ve happily forced into unsuspecting ears and not needed to rethink my opinions on those people. It is for me, a heartbreaking reality that nowhere near enough people know who they are - but genuinely enjoy what they hear then fail spectacularly to seek them out on their own time.

A week ago, a colleague asked me what music I would play at a Dinner party, which was one of the harder questions I’ve faced for a while - I responded that I’d have to play music that I thought people SHOULD hear, rather than trying to stomach something inoffensive with mass appeal - because nobody would want a quietly seething host gritting their teeth through Elbow or worse, Coldplay.  This was followed up with “what have you been listening to lately?” - it was nothing short of a delight to respond that I couldn’t tell them till next week and saunter off to unstack the chairs that I all too frequently bruise my shins on.   You see, I’ve been listening to Eggsistentialism for a few weeks and I’m nothing short of f*cking delighted by it. 

 

Eggsistentialism is going to be a high contender for my most listened to Albums this year, a sound so full it’s long since come undone at the seams, leaving a sprawl of yellow and orange spiralling within and around it. With production from Dave Fridmann that serves more as  highlighter than a filter leaving a simultaneously raw and polished album, which is a cohesive work of dare I say it, Art.  

I’m refraining from picking out the ‘must hear’ tracks, and ask you to trust me on this - it’s a must hear album. 

Go forth and listen.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
