Slow Down Tallahassee

I've been looking forward to this album for a while and finally managed to get my greasy paws on one last night after watching the band support The Lodger at York's Basement. It was actually Mr Vincent who purchased it because I had accidentally spent all my money on beer. Slow Down Tallahassee come from Sheffield and have been around for a while. I think I played their "So Much For Love" single on Burning World last year and if memory serves it's on lovely pink vinyl. I think I was hoping the album too would be on pink vinyl but alas it's merely a silver cd. It's called "The Beautiful Light" and contains fourteen perfectly crafted slices of indie pop. Seeing the band live the name Fat Tulips came into my head on more than one occasion and I think I'll have to try and find the Fat Tulips demo tape which is hiding somewhere in the mess I call home.
