Our second Homegame session comes from Slow Club, Moshi Moshi signings and nicest-people-ever. Charles and Rebecca braved the icy Fife winds to record two songs for us at the end of the pier in Anstruther, and didn't complain once.

Slow Club seem to unfairly suffer from identity confusion. Many people we spoke to wondered why they would be playing Homegame, having put the Moshi Moshi signing and appearances together and assumed they're hipster indie kids. Others see the acoustic guitar and the lack of other band members and peg them as folkies. The truth is they have a little of both, but lots of neither. A bit folky, a bit indie, a fair bit rockabilly, the songs are pretty, joyful ditties with plenty of heartache and a little wide-eyed naivety.

The second track is "Christmas TV", a Christmas single with a difference: it's good, and doesn't sound Christmasy. With lines like "Its okay that I pray you will miss your flight and stay with me another night" it focuses on the extra emotional strain that the festive season brings. If you've ever been alone at Christmas, it's guaranteed to break your heart.
