I have seen Georgie James a number of times now and they have played “Need Your Needs” every time.

I am not sure that they quite fit into that faux-sixties genre that Belle & Sebastian and Camera Obscura have created out and cohabitate, but I think it is only the Wurlitzer-or whatever-style keyboards that invoke that feeling.
