The Pastels - Love, It's Getting Better

The Pastels are nothing short of legendary, putting out numerous albums since 1981, collaborating with Tenniscoats, Jarvis Cocker and Teenage Fanclub and gaining fans in Nirvana among others. Easily one of my favourite bands, their sound is ever-developing and always startlingly fresh. This cut, however, takes a step back in time. A cover of a track by Northern Soul outfit The Groove, this was the fragile (yet somewhat soulful) b-side to The Pastels' 1995 single 'Worlds of Possibility'. Katrina Mitchell's strained vocals are beautiful and sit wonderfully atop the loose instrumental.
