Avec SpiraleSomething pop-tastic to end the month from Avec Spirale. Not only great taste in embroidered waist-coats and personal grooming as you can see from the glorious photograph above, but also just casually brilliant at writing and recording perfect pop tunes, like “Fingers” here:

Avec Spirale is the operational deployment name for Dunedin musician Chris Butchard. Usually seen behind the drum kit for local jangle pop band The Prophet Hens he’s an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in his own right.

“Fingers” is simultaneously radio-friendly pop (at least for those radio stations with a bit of individualism, flair and taste), and also something a bit deeper and darker.  There’s an album lurking somewhere I hear… here’s hoping for some more Avec Spirale.
