Top 10 of 2009: #5 - Fanfarlo


Fanfarlo - Reservoir

Harold T. Wilkins Or How To Live For A Very Long Time

Finish Line

This is a wee gem of an album from the fantastic Fanfarlo. Had the privilege of seeing them twice in the space of about 12 hours earlier on in the year. First at their amazing (if I try to forget the support band) King Tuts gig and then an acoustic "guerilla" gig in the Glasgow Uni cloisters.... see my dodgy photography below!

Back to the album, if you take the best bits from Arcade Fire and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and add a wee bit of English twee (and some Swedishness)... you get the idea! Really cracking stuff and a bargain too!


  1. I have read a lot about these guys, but never bothered my arse to check them out, I will now though

  2. Please do! :-D

    Got a BBC 6 Music session kicking about somewhere and a NMH cover. Might dig them out.
