Jam Of Tha Day: Wednesday 21st September 2011

Big Deal - Distant Neighbourhood

This time last week i had the pleasure of watching this two person outfit rock out live in Rough Trade East. Alice Costelloe & Kacey Underwood have produced the right combination of teen angst & the transition into adulthood I've heard in a long time. The unique selling point for me is: Big Deal's songs essential comprise of just two guitars and shared vocals, which intertwine harmoniously. Their debut album is a tour de force in broken-hearted melancholy, but the vocals juxtapose possible depressing material into intimate, deviant moments of ecstasy. Stand out jam's like: Chair, Homework, Talk & Seraphine will secure this lovely duet a big following for years to come. 

I hope maybe i'll be able to secure some of their songs for my first feature film, plus maybe a date with Alice Costelloe (but she would be too cool to hangout with moi). 

Peace and lots of love x
