MJ Hibbett covers Allo Darlin' for Indietracks!

We hope you're enjoying the Easter break! We spent part of the weekend travelling through the countryside (via Derbyshire, but sadly not past the Midland Railway) in the sunshine listening to the fantastic new Allo Darlin' album on repeat. It really is beyond brilliant, and we really can't wait to see them at the festival in July! 

And, of course, we're equally looking forward to MJ Hibbett and the Validators returning to the festival. We think 2010 might be Mark's fifth appearance at the festival, which is impressive as this is only the fourth time we've held it! Anyone who's chatted to Mark recently (or read his blog, or stood anywhere within earshot of him at any given point over the last fortnight) will probably have heard him raving about the Allo Darlin' album too.

We jumped at the chance when Mark offered to record something special for the blog, and we're delighted to share with you his version of Allo Darlin''s (is it correct to add a possessive apostrophe to a name that already ends in an apostrophe?) new single Dreaming. Thanks very much Mark - we love this cover and we're really impressed with the seeing-double illusion in the video!
