I WANT YOU ENDLESSLY.

This is big news. Fyfe Dangerfield, ringleader of one of our favorite bands of all time, Guillemots, is back and better than ever with his first ever solo album, Fly Yellow Moon, due in early 2010. We were lucky enough to receive an advance copy a few months back and it's really all we've been spinning since - it's quite literally nothing short of amazing. "When You Walk In The Room" is the first track on the record and it's an absolute belter, exactly the kind of thing you'd hope for from a Fyfe Dangerfield solo record. Fyfe's in rare form here, his off-the-wall vocals riding a spastic beat and cacophonous guitars for 3 minutes and 28 seconds of leftfield pop perfection.

Fly Yellow Moon
is a streamlined pop masterpiece with a number of tracks on par with anything off of Through The Windowpane (truly one of our most cherished records of all time), and anyone seeking more evidence needn't look further than Fyfe's beautiful new website, where you can stream some of the other album highlights. Tracks on the streaming player include "She Needs Me" - which comes off like a number one hit from a bygone era, complete with disco strings and immense brass sections - and "Livewire", a sparse acoustic number that's genuinely one of the most beautiful songs we've ever heard. To say we're excited about this record would be a vast, vast understatement. Here's your exclusive first taste.

Likewise. The bands debut album was superb (and the follow up wasn't half bad either)

This bodes very well for next year...

I love this so much! Can't wait for the album!

By 'exclusive' you mean 'not at all exclusive'? Seeing as it's available as a free download on his site and has been for a good few days? :-P

Anyway, this is a great song and i'm really looking forward to the LP. Guillemots' debut is a truly stunning album, packed with beautiful songs. If Fyfe's is even half as good then it'll easily be an Album Of 2010 contender.

I know its off topic but I hope you saw the write up of Marina and the Diamonds in The Irish Times Sunday supplement.
It had a pretty good mention of the label too
