N-E-W: Japandroids, Dum Dum Girls, Tennis!
North Korea eh?! Serious determination! Fair play to them on a fine performance against Brazil, losing 2-1 is not half bad for them. World Cup fever has arrived with the sunshine, and despite the crushing fact that Ireland aren't taking part we're still getting in on the excitement! And the soundtrack to this festival of football ...
Yes, yes it is a rather e-mo'ey! But y'know I like it, it's fun and ballsey, and it's a newly released 7" single from the wonderful Japandroids!

Well this is a tasty bit of something. Husband and wife duo Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore spent eight months sailing and exploring the North Atlantic coast and wrote songs about their adventures under the name Tennis. This is gorgeous.

And Dum Dum Girls. You can't go wrong with a bit of scuzzy, lo-fi, 50's pop, pogo music. As a rule. It's adorable. Well this is anyway.

...I love that when Googl'ing Kim Jong Il, Kim Kardashian No Clothes comes up first in the suggested options! ...I wonder who'd be more dangerous with nuclear capabilities!
