On their 2003 tour of the UK, Lungfish had taken to covering ‘Well... All Right’ in the manner of Blind Faith. It was unexpected, but somehow made perfect sense. If, by chance, you caught one of these mercurial performances and fancy a whole album of similar stuff then look no further than this latest Arbouretum release, a quietly joyous mix of hazy vintage rock, reflective concepts and meditative repetition clothed in unobtrusive keyboard whorls, lazily ecstatic guitar solos and the rich, golden voice of David Heumann. The results are shufflingly majestic, loaded with blissful truths and, it must be said, startlingly close to perfect.
Loads of super important stuff happeed this week, like All Time Lowselling out Wembley Arena and Gerard Way finally playing a show in the UK. Here are the super unimportant things that wouldn't matter at all if it wasn't for the internet. God bless the internet.
