Once in a blue moon, a new band comes along which literally takes your breath away. Thirteen Senses did that to me a few years ago. They had a very successful first album THE INVITATION. Their second album, CONTACT, released in 2007 was less successful.
They seemed to disappear off the face of the earth, but last night I stumbled across their new album, available for free to listen to on their website. The title track, CRYSTAL SOUNDS is brilliant. Have a listen to the whole thing HERE.

Thirteen Senses are from Cornwall, and are apparently the only Cornish band to ever have a top ten hit!
I've always wanted to see them in concert and I thought my luck was in as they are playing in London on 8 June. But typically, I am busy that evening hosting an Ann Widdecombe evening in Chelmsford.
I know most of you consider my musical taste somewhat dodgy - and for good reason. But do yourselves a favour and at least have a listen. If you like Embrace, Athlete, Radiohead or the Killers, you might well like them.
Here's an acoustic version of one of their hits, Follow Me.
