New McAlmont & Butler
McAlmont and Butler. Artists whom I have always enjoyed hearing together, but somehow never fully checked out properly. However, my interest was piqued the other day in finding out that they are going to be releasing a new single (7” and download only) on its own, without any album to promote, just for the love of it. That sounded quite refreshing, so when I switched on 6 Music the other night, they were on the Tom Robinson show, all ready to play a few acoustic tunes. Luckily the SD card was in and I was quick enough on the record button.
The songs are great. David McAlmont has an amazing voice that simply soars. Bernard Butler gets busy on the acoustic. They played the new single Speed, plus Falling off their last album, and another totally new track called Midnight. M&B fans – get 'em while they're hot. Me, I'm off to discover more.
