Think I'm Alright Now

Felix Bechtolsheimer is Curse of Lono. He writes and sings the kind of songs I like. I only know this because the last remaining music magazine I subscribe to dropped on the doormat over the weekend and, within its covers, was a full page ad for an album called People in Cars by the aforementioned Curse of Lono. I had absolutely no idea what he/they/it sounded like; but I knew from the album cover alone that I would love it (who said you can't judge a book by its cover?). And so it came to pass; after listening to it twice on the bounce initially and a further couple of times it is now, as I write this late on Tuesday night, lodged squarely in my brain. (Don't you just love it when that happens?) This is the new single.

Curse of Lono - Think I'm Alright Now (2021)


  1. Thank you for reminding me about this guy. I heard a track by him on the radio a few weeks ago and filed the name away for later inspection... but my filing cabinet has a few holes these days.

    1. I found out - literally a couple of hours ago - that he played Rough Trade in Nottingham (a 10 minute bus ride from my house) on Monday night; gutted doesn't come close.

      I think you'll get on well with People in Cars, Rol. A late contender for Album of the Year, perhaps..?)

    2. My original reply was a bit ambiguous.

      I'm now typing this three months later and I can honestly say my love of this album has not waned. It's absolutely stunning. And I'm going to see them i Sheffield in May!

  3. I like it too. And he found something cool for the 'Finds Table'!
