Well it's bank holiday weekend and the races are on here in York so going out is one thing I will not be doing. In fact I think I'll take this opportunity to catch up on the stack of tunes in my inbox some of which have been sat there for weeks. Yeah I know I've been a bit lazy of late but I promise to try harder ok?
First up then is a band from Blackburn called Broken Robots and I particularly like the tremelo guitar in these tracks. Very nice and quite reminicent of My Bloody Valentine at times.
They have a Myspace site HERE

Broken Robots - Kiss Me When
Broken Robots - Don't Tell Me
