For the last installment of doves guest editors appearance at Q music online. Jimi has chosen ‘Omega Time’ by Malakai, to be Q The Music’s Friday “Track Of The Day”, as part of Doves’ role as guest editors of the website this week.
Jimi Goodwin (Doves): “From their album ‘The Ugly Side of Love’. Bristol madness! Think Jeff Barrett (Doves’ label boss at Heavenly Records) turned us on to this. Reminds me of things like Madvillain/Madlib/Edan psychedelic hip hop. Really thrilled that they’re going to be supporting us on our April/May tour.”
Here’s a quick recap of the week’s picks.
Monday: Jacob and the Angel by the Invisible (Jimi) Tuesday: Tonight’s Today by Jack Penate (Jez) Wednesday: Sea Within A Sea by the Horrors (Andy) Thursday: Extinction by the Soft Pack (Jimi)
Andy & Jez also talked to Q about all the albums. Here are the links:

Jimi Goodwin: “A band I’ve just got into from San Diego. Not sure if this is out yet, but check the video made for about 15 bucks on their Myspace page it’s really funny and makes me smile. They used to be called The Muslims… Anyone know why they changed their name?”
Andy Williams (Doves): “I love the darkness and atmosphere to this song. An inspired pairing of them & Geoff Barrow on production. I love the arpeggio synths, echoes of Joy Division and New Order. A really brave record.”
There’s more Doves content at Q The Music.com, where Doves are guest editors all this week.
Today, Andy recounts the making of 2005’s Some Cities album.
Jez Williams (Doves): “I also remember a writing session before recording in this really knackered old farmhouse near Snowdon where, guess what, we wrote Snowden (was a working title that stuck). The place had no heating or carpets and the bed sheets looked like they hadn’t been changed in 12 months, old pubes all over the place. It was like something out of Withnail And I!!”
