Daisy Celebrates The BEST Records Of 2019!
Feeder, Tallulah (Victor Entertainment)
Whenever I’m having a nervous breakdown because my brother’s eaten the last of the Coco Pops or breaking into a cold sweat because I’ve spilt tomato sauce down the front of my favourite Linkin Park t-shirt and now the world’s going to end because I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M GOING TO WEAR!!!! the best thing I can do is put a Feeder record on. Feeder just don’t do hoo-ha. And there’s nothing I need more in my life than people who don’t do hoo-ha. The same’s surely true for us all. Fierce thanks, then, to Grant Nicholas and Taka Hirose because they’re back again and Tallulah offers serious relief from the day-to-day hullabaloo of life in 2019. It really does. NOTHING about Feeder is melting or over-populated or not being recycled properly. YES, there are echoes of their previous albums scattered throughout Tallulah but never to the point where it feels like the band have run out of ideas. Actually, it’s these moments of familiarity which consolidate the warm, tingly feeling always embedded in Feeder’s music. Listening to their latest gorgeous album is the sonic equivalent of being given a massive cuddle – and I for one can never have enough massive cuddles.
