LISTEN: Cast - 'Time Bomb', 'See That Girl'

As I reported a few months ago, Britpop legends Cast are back together, touring and recording a new album. The album has been funded by fans through the Pledgemusic site, and you can still get yourself some exclusive Cast stuff from that site, including signed copies of the album (when it comes out), signed T Shirts and VIP passes to forthcoming shows. And plus a percentage of the money raised and from sales of the CD will go to homeless charity Shelter.

The band have been recording the new tracks, and hopefully the finished album should see the light of day before the year's end. Judging from the two new tracks they've played live, it's a return to the sound of the classic debut album 'All Change' and it's follow up 'Mother Nature Calls' rather than the orchestral leanings of 'Magic Hour' or the terrible attempt at being modern that was the last album 'Beetroot'.

More information on the Cast album when I get it, but here's live versions of two of the new songs.
