The Wedding Present – Convertible

The Wedding Present have a new album out, it’s called ‘El Rey’ and believe it or not it is only their 8th proper release. On the face of it given that prolific lead man David Gedge is probably pushing 90 at this stage it seems a little strange that the album count is so low. But then if you look under the covers there was the majesty of Cinerama, which ate a dose of the eternal lovestrucks’ time. The great news is that ‘El Rey’ is another fine album, not that you could expect anything else from this consistently brilliant yet ultimately overlooked Leeds band. I’ll dip into the new one later in the year but for the moment here is a classic (geddit, it’s taken from their ‘Mini’ release!) from their back catalogue. 2 minutes of glorious indiepop with flightly boy/girl dynamics, shimmering chords and bag of lyrics to strike a note with would be lovers/breaker-uppers the world over.
