Ear Candle Radio's Top 20 for May 2013

A comprehensive list song that lovingly outlines everything that is quintessentially English by ex-Slit Viv Albertine tops our charts for May! Viv's new album, The Vermilion Border, is an absolute must, a brutally honest portrait of how it feels to be a hip 50-something woman looking at the next stage of life, and the credits are jaw-dropping. All the old-school punk and new wave luminaries you might expect to show up on Viv's comeback album, plus surprises like Jack Bruce and Danny Thompson (whose one-of-a-kind bass adds so much to "Still England"). Viv is also represented by the Slits classic "FM". Elsewhere we have two solo projects from key members of Erase Errata, two Lijadu Sisters grooves, and our own Content Providers. As the wise man Dr. Alimantado would say, jump, jump, wiggle and wind, and keep your ears tuned to Ear Candle Radio.
