I needed my lug oles clearing out of all that drippy po faced nonsense that was insulting my ears in recent weeks.... I mean seriously, there was nowt of any much cop really was there? Any hoo I ordered Daddy to the local shops again on the pretence of getting me some fresh air (Yeah right) and we popped into Record Corner again and this is what we bought.

LISTEN TO IT FOR THE FIRST TIME UNDER OPTIMUM CONDITIONS.Not in your car or on a portable player through a headset. (OK..Dad fire up the separates!)
Take it home. (Check)
Think about who would appreciate this investment. (Not sure really, Fans obviously)
Decide if there is someone to share this with.( Nope)
Turn it on again. (OK but I won't change my mind. EDIT:Nope)
Enjoy Yourself. (You are kidding ain't ya?)
I want to recommend this but alas I cannot . It's pretty difficult for me to rate as he is great and his voice sounds awesome. The sparse (Rubin meets Burial) production really suits the generally down beat and world weary feel of the worthwhile messages hidden within. Go to here to buy if you like to buy... And what do I know anyways. I'm only a baby.
PS. On more positive note daddy tried me on some Charlie Alex March. In particular, a cover of Daniel Jonhston's "True love will find you...". Nice enough. Simply sung with a natty little string arrangement, but the gem is a ditty called "When the clouds clear". Truly special and splendid in equal measure, ambient, woody, home-made, not lo-fi, gorgeous and lovely. This is a fantastic EP and a great taster of what is to follow on his debut (released about now me thinks).
Buy the EP here.
Need pocket money...
Shoot! I don't get any!
I MEAN IT!

Well.... Scared me a bit this. All rigid sounding and spooky words. After the soft classical opening of Time Xone it went all Bang bang. I'm only 5 months old and have not heard anything like this before. If Oliver Postgate made a series about a post-apocalyptic Croydon wasteland inhabited by Flumps.... This is the soundtrack.....but the Flumps would have to die. This is bleak doomy stuff which you could dance to only if you were mental. I'm not really making this sound like a recommendation am I? There is lot's of Philip Glass bits,Talk Talk bits, Burial bits, RZA bits bloody hell... now there are scary older children singing...Is this lift music for the Overlook hotel?
