Blue Velvet
CHILDHOOD – Lacuna (Marathon Artists)

Childhood emerged at the same time as Temples, and while they’ve have taken their time in releasing their first album, it was worth the wait. It’s a great collection of modern indie-pop songs, including nice re-workings of early singles ‘Solemn Skies’ and ‘Blue Velvet’. As with Temples, 60’s psychedelia is a big influence, but that is no bad thing in my book, and vinyl copies include a free 7”, so grab it early.
