This one goes out to all the sitting and wannabe MEPs and councillors in the audience today.

The band are called AsDSSkA. Yeah, I know, the shelf with all the catchy names must have been bare when they called by. Anyway, AsDSSkA are Aska Matsumiya (her form includes The Sad and Moonrats) and David Scott Stone (who has spells with The Sads, Get Hustle, Unwound and The Melvins to his name).

The two of them make dreamy, moody, out-there ambient music full of winsome coos, Satie-like abstract piano trembles, slow-mo synths and deeply lovely soundscapes to make you sigh with delight.

“Hold On” is out as a single at the moment on the Family Bookstore label and this tune comes with a smashing video put together by Spike Jonze and Crystal Moselle.
