Brown > Black etc.

It's funny how quickly things move in the UK music scene.

While it's always been the case that break-through acts suddenly prompt every record exec to want to find the "new Klaxons/Crystal Castles etc." However as a consumer it makes you feel bad to find your new favourite band and love them because they remind you of a band you were only singing the praises of 18 months ago (who haven't even broken-through or reached their full potential themselves yet).

Does that make any sense? We're not sure... while you're trying to work out what we're trying to say take a look/listen at the AMAZING Tubelord.
