The Birthday Suit – Less Worthless Years

Good God, Rod Jones, where have you been hiding this? A second Birthday Suit album is in progress, and after last year’s excellent The Eleventh Hour, hopes were high, but not quite this high. Less Worthless Years is joyous, impossibly infectious and utterly bonkers, and it’s their best yet. The same sense of euphoria as Idlewild’s Readers and Writers with a proper shot in the arm, it’s one of those songs that’s almost over too soon, but as a piece of inventive guitar pop, it’s pretty much perfect. Available to download from Monday 9th.
