SONG OF THE WEEK #85: The Primary 5 - "I'll Lay You Down"

Formed by the former Teenage Fanclub drummer Paul Quinn, The Primary 5 created some of the most chiming, irresistible power-pop confections you are ever going to hear. While their final album, High Five, seemed rather too patchy, you can't go wrong with the first two. The gorgeous, Byrdsy "I'll Lay You Down" (off the band's brilliant debut North Pole from 2004) is pretty much perfect. Its wistful, world-weary vocal melody never fails to remind me of Gene Clark at his 60s peak.
