Sfw's Best Of Latitude 2014 - Hiss Golden Messenger, Glass Animals, The Editors,

After sleepless nights, baby wipe showers and festival toilets, 
there was also some great music on show!!

You cannot see the sweat!

Hiss Golden Messenger - Saturday Song (2014)

What a way to start the festival! First up for me was Hiss Golden Messenger who is North Carolina based songwriter M.C. Taylor.  70s Country Rock meets JJ Cale matched our early excitement and got us tapping our feet, slurping our beer and blew us all away. Saturday Song features on their new album "Lateness of Dancers", out September 9, 2014.  Give it a few listens - it gets better and better! 

Glass Animals - Gooey (2014)

Tune Doctor Favourites Glass Animals appeared in Keith Allen's Establishment Club which was packed for the Oxford indie-poppers performance.  The lads faultlessly performed tracks from their debut album Zaba, which was released in June.  Slow beats, soulful vocals from them and a mix of mojito's (and yet more heat) had us bouncing!   

The Editors - A Ton of Love (2013)
The Editors performance on Friday night restored my faith in a band that I've sadly neglected.  Why they weren't headlining still baffled me - Two Door Cinema Club cancelled and they ended up getting Lily Allen!  A hit-filled set reminded us all how great this band are.  My faith has been restored!

Indeed a great start. From a sleepless night and what have we done, to everything is alright in the world. Hiss delivered with that Southern charm fitting for the heat of the day. I really enjoyed the Glass Animals set, another favourite of the year for me (all thanks to a TOTW earlier) it was stifling in that tent but the Mojitos went down well. I agree completely about the Editors too, nobody puts them in the corner!!

What can I say, 3 great tracks and the HGM track is as good a start to a playlist that I can remember... Almost as good as a scrambled eggs and chorizo breakfast to start the day
