A cold January of mostly decent new music. Unfortunately, I was unable to get to three gigs, so I’ll have to catch The Cult of Dom Keller, FURS and Menace Beach some other time.

British Sea Power at the Barbican. I’d waited for it after it had been cancelled. I wasn’t sure if I’d like a brass band. I did.
Best new band:
Jagaara – Really enjoyed this band. Pop indie. But good pop indie.
