Don’t Mind If I Do…

The Lounge Kittens "Have Another..." E.P.After a slightly tumultuous fundraising/recording period, The Lounge Kittens’s new mini-album/E.P. (“Have Another…”) has finally been released into the wild! Technically, as a pledger, I got my copy a day early (possibly even posted by one of the Kittens themselves?), but it’s taken me a while to make the time to give it a proper listen. Apparently I’m horribly out of the loop, because I wasn’t familiar with half the tracks/artists* they covered here… but that didn’t stop me enjoying their trademark (sweary) three-part harmonies, accomplished piano accompaniment, and occasional jokey flourishes. On top of which, I still find their heartfelt rendition of Jimmy Eat World‘s “The Middle” very moving and uplifting, so bless them for that. Oh, they’ve also recorded an Avicii medley in tribute to the late musician, which is available to buy separately (and highly recommended).
