James X Boyd & The Boydoids Ride Again

It was so great to see James X Boyd out on the tiles with his Boydoids at the last Sonic Masala show at Power Lunches - they were truly great, and will have some more shows in the future I guarantee. I even named his first two albums, the first self-titled, the second Super Low, as some of my favourites of the year back in 2013. And here are a few tracks they recorded from that set - including personal favourite 'Brunswick St Junkies'. It's iPhone "special" recordings, but gives you a hint of the rusty charms that this wry mastermind has up his sleeves, whilst the last song 'Real Madrid' eases the pain with an altogether different salve, letting out new flesh, a warm, almost cute minimalist Krautrock dream. My love affair, rekindled.
