We introduced Will and The People last week and fell in love with their pop hooks…. so imagine our delight when Will got in touch and recorded us a very special version of forthcoming single “Knocking” just for TGTF? Perfection.

‘Knocking’ is released on 4th May on RCA.


Video of the Day #35: Donora

By on Monday, 23rd March 2009 at 6:00 pm

Aaaah, another Brother / Sister band. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based Donora have just released their maiden video, a chaotic houseparty that looks a lot of fun. The best part? The tune is great. It’s shouty, party-like and memorable – just a great way to start your weekend to, or remember a great weekend passed.

Want to know more? Well…

Jake H. plays the drums, triggers samples from his octapad, and sings backup. Casey sings and tries very hard to remember the right guitar chords to play. Jake C. plays bass and reminds Casey which key each song starts in. Together they play melodic, dance-worthy, garage rock.

Watch and enjoy…



Video of the Day #17: Lily Allen

By on Sunday, 1st March 2009 at 10:00 am

If I’m honest, I love Lily Allen‘s new album, It’s not me, it’s you. Like her debut, it’s outspoken, funny, childish and above all, catchy.

One of my favourite songs from the album is the brilliantly named “Fuck You” – catch the video below, live from New York’s Bowery Ballroom.



Video of the day #8: Marmaduke Duke – Kid Gloves

By on Friday, 20th February 2009 at 6:00 pm

Marmaduke Duke may not be a name you’re all familiar with. The duo behind it, Simon Neil and JP Reid, are usually better known in their main projects, Biffy Clyro and Sucioperro, however their side project is a chance for them to go slightly crazy…

We have an interview with JP on Monday afternoon, so stop by to check that out if you’re interested.

Otherwise check out the ace video below…



Video of the Day #7: The Doves – Kingdom of Rust

By on Thursday, 19th February 2009 at 6:00 pm

You may have spotted floating around The Doves‘ new video for forthcoming single, Kingdom of Rust.

From the press release…

In ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ Doves have created a Lancastrian Spaghetti Western in song form that is overflowing with the kind of drama that Sergio Leone would certainly approve of. Indeed, imagine, if you can, that Ennio Morricone was born and raised in Manchester on a diet of the Factory Recordings output, big nights out, and long mornings after. Add in an obsession with the distinctive, and sometimes harsh, unforgiving North West landscape, and then imagine that he’d been blessed with one of the most brooding-emotive voices in popular song… ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ is probably what this would sound like.




Video of the Day #7: Kanye West – Welcome to Heartbreak

By on Wednesday, 18th February 2009 at 2:30 pm

So many good videos out there that we’re doubling up today and tomorrow so we can feature everything we want too.

Not normally a huge fan of rappers. Kanye West has long been a critics favourite, however I’ve never been a big fan. Then he released 808’s and Heartbreak, which I downloaded in the hope I’d like it. I fell in love with it.

Love Lockdown? Amazing. Now he’s got a new video for forthcoming single, Welcome to Heartbreak. Slightly bizarre to watch, it’s a feast of video editing techniques, and quite great to put it lightly. It’s directed by Nabil Elderkin – watch and enjoy below.
