Despite my absence from the internet for the past few days, due to busy work schedules, late night train rides, spontaneous dinners and ice-cream expeditions, and sheer tiredness, I did manage to read much of the debate on Skatterbrain! surrounding Cloudberry Records and its importance in the indie pop scheme of things. I thought much of the discussion was utter nonsense, and as a relative newcomer to the joys of Cloudberry, I think Roque's contribution to indie pop has been second to none. Without Cloudberry, I wouldn't have discovered some of the bands I've begun listening to and writing about here.
One such band is The Hi-Life Companion, who hail from
The Hi-Life Companion have almost finished recording their debut album, which is definitely something to look forward to later this year! In the meantime, I'll wear a smile as big as theirs everytime I listen to their songs.
