Some may remember my (possibly ill-advised) attempt at showcasing urban music on the blog, entitled The Urban Hour ([Part One]//[Part Two]). Nonetheless, I am moving on with the acoustic version, imaginatively titled The Acoustic Hour. Hurrah? More to come soon, possibly tomorrow.
Lucy & The Caterpillar is 20 year old solo artist Lucy, accompanied by her Caterpillar, a 3/4 size guitar. I've had my eye on Lucy for a while (christ, that sounds pervy) following her lovely debut single 'Red, Red Wine' which was followed by a more melancholic 'Kings Cross'. Since then she's been working with The Earlies, and new single 'Lucy's Opinion' is the result of that collaboration. Unfortunately, it's not quite as great as her past singles but you can hear a radio session version of it, as well as bee-side 'Bumblebee' below. On the upside, it comes as a special edition cd with handmade sleeve (only 200 copies), so worth buying for that alone. Head to Lucy's website to nab it [link].
