The Way of the Vaselines: A Complete History
24 fév. 2011, 14h14m par dandyboy73Lots of new stuff, the biggest of which must be PJ Harvey's Let England Shake. It kicks off with the title track which, while fine in itself, is rather peculiar in that when trying to hum it it manages to sound like both Puttin' On The Ritz and They Might Be Giants' Istanbul (Not Constantinople) (don't ask). Best track for me is the slightly shoegazey The Glorious Land, which, as any visitor to its Last FM page will know, manages the impressive feat of sounding like there's a YouTube clip of the American Civil War (with bugle!) playing underneath.
I took to this album straight away, which is a bit unusual for a Peej album for me. Her most rewarding works (Is This Desire? and White Chalk) took time to unwind and reveal their greatness. While This Is England is far from being a bad album, it feels a bit lacking in depth. This is surprising considering it was in development for such a long time, but despite it only being out for a few weeks I feel like I know it already. …
25 jan. 2011, 22h01m par amodelofcontrolThe wierd thing about writing these Tuesday Tens is that the ideas for some take a long time to come together. Others can have a whole load of suggestions come at once, particularly if an idea for a subject pops up while I’m in the pub, or out with my girlfriend (especially in the car, oddly enough), when a song triggers it. This happened on Friday night in the Dev, when my girlfriend and and another friend came up with various suggestions for a future TT that so far, I’m not quite happy with. So I’m returning to the mass of notes I have stored (and backed up!) for this week and a few more in the future – I have at least twelve future subjects on their way to completion – and this week, it’s literary connections. That is, songs that are about works of literature, reference them, or are about literary figures. I’d love to hear other suggestions, too.
As usual click here to hear most of the playlist on Spotify, as well as a few bonuses seeing as one or two are missing.

12 sept. 2010, 14h10m par EncouragingSlugThis is just some scratch space to write down some wishlist items. I have a wishlist tag, but not everything is on last.fm to tag and I'd like to put things in priority order for the next time I have a splurge.
Samson & Delilah - one of these I will get round to getting this...
Into The Trees by Zoë Keating - check out the previews and/or buy here: http://music.zoekeating.com/
Rising by Yoko Ono - can't seem to find this about the place, IRL at least.
Has Been by William Shatner - surprisingly quality song-writing and refreshing honesty - seems to be a bit 'spensive.
Dirty Pearl by Anita Lane - can't seem to find this one IRL
Is This Desire? by PJ Harvey - yes, I am a long way behind the curve...
That's enough to be going on with.

13 jan. 2010, 21h13m par an_cat_dubhNota Bene: Depeche Mode "Sounds of the Universe" has 221 listens.
"Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant" by Belle and Sebastian - 184
and "A Woman A Man Walked by" by John Parish and PJ Harvey has 216 but due to different album tags they are placed much lower than they should be.
