I can hardly believe that I haven’t mentioned The School before now. Quite probably the best sound to come out of Wales since Helen Love, The School hail from Cardiff and make 60s-tinged pop designed to put a smile on your face and a tap in your toes.
They burst onto the playground of pop in 2008 with one of the year’s very best records, the Let it Slip EP. An LP, Loveless Unbeliever, followed in 2010.
This year the band released its second long player, Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything, and this might just its best track.
The School :: Baby Won’t You Stay With Me Tonight? ⬇
The band are signed to Elefant, a Spanish record company, and Spain’s Radio 3 recorded Los conciertos de Radio 3 a performance of songs from the band’s debut long player, including this track from Let it Slip.

And where would this blog be without the occasional cover of a Bruce Springsteen song.
