Bocha Chica-Valentine EP
Boca Chica first grabbed our attention on 2009’s excellent Indiecator Records Christmas compilation. The hauntingly beautiful ‘Snow Angels’ was one of albums highlights and filled us with the sort of festive glee that only a fine Malt Whiskey can normally induce. Naturally we we were delighted to discover that Boca Chica’s ‘Valentine’ EP maintains that high standard. Valentines Day may be over but don’t let that stop you falling in love with this band. You can hear the whole EP HERE and if you like it , you could do something novel, like, y’know, buy it 😉 !!
Last week there was the free download now here’s the video

Retro Track Of The Week (which We ADORE!)
The Church-‘Under The Milky Way’
Finally This week was the Brit Awards, yet another horrible soulless pantomime and in general a celebration of the triumph of the talentless, enlivened just once by host Peter Kaye calling Liam Gallagher a ‘nobhead’ – Chortle! (right at the end of the clip)
