Doves - "Best Of..." Coming April 20

And Doves is a band I will recommend to ANYONE.

They even did a promotional version of their new track, Andalusia, on The Observer's website ... what makes it more awesome? It's an acoustic version played in front of a massive satellite dish at a place called Jodrell Bank.

Why the satellite dish? That dish was the cover of the single for "Space Face", the only song I know they still play in concert from their earlier days as the band "Sub Sub".

I also found a 4 minute film clip where they talk about their first album as Doves. I'm still astounded that they stayed together as a band and completely changed musically after their old studio (and the master tracks from an album-in-progress) all literally went up in flames. They changed the name, changed their sound, and tapped into a batch of awesome.
