“We’ve been going back and forth, my love.”

“Tongue Tied” by Oktoba | The past few weeks have been so crazy on all fronts, this has been sitting on the backlog for a month, and I missed the release date by a month. But, perhaps knowing that all this will happen, it’s a no-frills, quiet, chill set of folk-pop tunes. Charlotte (again) sent this our way. Oktoba is a project from Chris Athorne, formerly of the Suffolk-based band This Boy Wonders; now he’s doing the sort of music that gently wakes you up to a chirpy, slightly sunny morning. He just released his debut album Smoke Signals – again, available in the usual places – and it’s a nice collection of tunes, pleasant and nothing challenging. Usually that’d sound like a slam, but that’s just what I need. Talk about timing. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
