Hottest Records - Doves - Winter Hill

Zane Lowe | 21:08 UK time, Wednesday, 10 June 2009


Message from Huw... Another beauty from the Kingdom of Rust album, the second single. The band get even more majestic with each album, Jimi's vocals sounding warmer and deeper with every track you hear. Their set at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in May was a highlight of the weekend; a band at their peak who continue to please and attract new fans all the time. So an obvious choice for the Hottest Record in the World tonight by a big bold beautifully intricate band.

    Ah, this is a bit random and borderline rude to Doves (sorry boys, nice track...) but I don't seem to be able to comment to Florence And The Machine - Rabbit Heart (Lionheart Mix) bit so here goes... Now. Was walking home yesterday and was just having the most pleasurable time realising that I might love Huw's accent (in fact, could eat it with a spoon or something equally weird) when he goes ahead and drops the Jamie T mix of Rabbit Heart. O! M! G! (don't do that lightly by the way)I love this track more! Sorry Huw - but your own fault. The best walk ever, official!

    Great track by a band I am growing to like more and more. Listened to a lot of the Big Weekend although not I was not actually there I am willing to believe it was a highlight - from what I heard on the radio it was a great set. Greg
