in a sudden turn of events, for the first time in weeks, maybe even months, i actually feel genuinely happy. things are definitely not perfect at all, but i’m feeling o.k.a.y. so to end off the shittiest and lowest year of my life (no exaggeration, maybe i’ll talk about it in like 20 years), i want to share a playlist that’ll always put me in a good mood, maybe it will for other PULP fans toooo (cause we all fancy jarvis cocker a little bit don’t we ;p).
i saw Trash first in 2015 as a support act. and whilst it wasn’t the best venue (JD’s lounge is now closed btw) to see a band as good as them, it was still pretty amazing. good enough for me to spend the little money i had on the Urban Glow EP (bargain for a fiver, best song is Drift). obviously i was a little sad when they split up last December, BUTTT, their final final show will see them perform on Leadmill’s main stage in February 2019, and it’ll be the best thing ever —— a show for all the sad boys and girls out there.

Sophie Allison AKA Soccer Mommy, is one of my favourite discoveries of 2018 (thnx Spotify). Lo-fi indie-pop doesn’t get any better than this.
