Listening booth — Pugwash, “Answers on a Postcard (live)”

The latest album from Thomas Walsh’s band Pugwash, The Olympus Sound, really is one of the finer records of 2011. If you love power pop as much as I do — hell, even if you don’t — get a copy today and you’ll become a fan too. But if my track record of displaying immaculate taste in music isn’t enough to convince you, perhaps this clip will. It features the band (with special guest keyboardist Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy in tow) performing one of the best cuts from The Olympus Sound for an Irish talk show that I can’t place.

Enjoy Pugwash performing “Answers on a Postcard”!
