That's My Jam #30 - Algernon Doll - Spilt Milk Perfume
Responsible for one of my favourite albums of last year, Algernon Doll returns with a brand new single and in doing so takes one more giant leap ahead of the pack.
Spilt Milk Perfume bursts to life with a volley of drums over melodic guitars. Ewan Grant's slightly distorted vocals ache with the passion that has become his trademark, whilst the notable influences of Nirvana and The Smashing Pumpkins tumble out, at no point does this track sound jaded or dated.
It's fresh, it's new and it's driven. Things get more fuzzy and messy towards the end, invoking the image of Grant sprawling about on stage, guitar in throe, lost in the moment.
Spilt Milk Perfume is available as a free download here from Struggletown Records ahead of Algernon Doll's third album 'Omphalic'
