January’s stuff

February 9, 2008

A lean month, and mercifully so too.

Having spent most of December and the beginning of January wading through BATFA screeners, I’m quite happy to give film a rest for a while and concentrate on massaging my ears with last year’s backlog of underlistened-to goodies.

And so, only three new things this month – and one of them’s from 2005, another a new interpretation of an even older piece, and the last a compilation of oldies.

All three are stonkingly good though.

BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE – Broken Social Scene

GAVIN BRYARS/PHILIP JECK/ALTER EGO – The Sinking Of The Titanic (1969 – )

VARIOUS ARTISTS – the very best of Ethiopiques

New track from the upcoming Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds set is trailered on YouTube and sounds damn fine. Looking forward to hearing more.
