Aimless Skylarking favorites, Personal Best, announced their debut LP, Arnos Vale, and offered up the first slice for our ears, 'This Time Next Year'. On the new single, the band didn't veer from what made their debut EP, "The Lovin'", so successful -- biting power-pop sing along anthems. According to the band, the album was recorded in late 2014 in the misty hills of mid-Wales with Gethin Pearson, and builds on the highly successful recipe they used with The Lovin’. Stream 'This Time Next Year' below.

Personal Best are 3 friends, Kate, Tom, and Lou. I counted their debut EP as one of my favorites last year, even going so far as having a t-shirt and vinyl shipped over to the States from Specialist Subject Records. Yes, they'll ship to the States. And I'll do the same with Arnos Vale.
