Again a few weeks flew by without any posts. Lately I just haven’t had what this takes, but tonight I’m listening to a new BXM Bandits album and this is all love. Albeit often the hurting kind, because BMX Bandits have created a beautifully sad pop album. The hurt never gets unbearable though, because even when there’s heartache in the lyrics, there’s heartwarming smiles in the music. I’m probably smiling even more than I should, but I just can’t help it. Even a sad BMX Bandits song is a warm smile, a gentle hug and a shoulder to lean on and always a complete match with my overly romantic heart.
BMX Bandits has been creating wondrous pop magic for 30+ years and long may it continue. BMX Bandits Forever indeed. No Matter What You Say and Love Me ‘Til My Heart Stops are perfect pop songs on all accounts and the whole new record is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks again Duglas T Stewart, you beautiful man. Even though I don’t know him personally, this BMX Bandits front man is also sort of a pop mentor to me. Over the years, I’ve spent hours listening the songs he has shared on his twitter or TFC boards and he has introduced me to a lot of songs that I probably would have never found without him. Thanks for that too Duglas T Stewart, you beautiful man.
BMX Bandits Forever was released on the 19th of May on the classic Spanish pop label Elefant Records.
