Singles of the year: #58=

58= Long Time Coming – The Delays
58= Johnny Cash – Sons & Daughters

I know absolutely nothing about The Delays, except that this is a sturdy piece of lilting power-pop of the classic school, which puts me in mind of The Tourists, The Pretenders, The Bangles and their ilk.

Meanwhile, Sons & Daughters sneak in at the last minute (i.e. after I started publishing this list) with an almost forgotten single which displays their roughly hewn gothic-country-rockabilly sound to full effect. Another great live act, as well; do try and catch them if you get the chance.
