There will be blaaaaarrrrrrggghhh

This is a picture Graham Sutherland painted of me looking smugly at nothing in particular…well…it might be W. Somerset Maugham…

A quick blast through some stuff I’ve been listening to the last while – some stuff that made me nostalgic and some stuff that’s just great (particularly Grouper and Q-Tip). You decide what’s what.
It was meant to be a zip file but something went wrong, i.e. me, so now it’s just individual tracks, unfortunately.
I hereby tip Ivan Colon (that should have a Hispanic-sort-of inflection over the second ‘O’ so he isn’t named after a vital body part) to be the Sufjan/Bon Iver grower of 2009 (despite his religious leanings) and reckon he’ll probably play a Foggy Notions or Crawdaddy gig that everyone raves about for months at some stage. If this doesn’t happen, you ain’t seen me , roigh’?

Here’s the tracks, artists and my one word sum-up after the artists name.

What Is Gained – Ivan Colon (luvverly)
Five Minute Dream – Like Honey (shoegazey)
Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie – Joanna Newsom and the Ys Street Band (harpy)
Fortunate Son – Cat Power (sultry)
Heavy Water, I’d Rather Be Sleeping – Grouper (underwaterbeauty)
Ciccone – Microfilm (groovy)
By Horoscope Light I&II – Doseone (nasaltastic-y)
Resurgam -Alias (jackyerbody)
Corrupt – Dalek (tasty)
Believe – Q-Tip (featuring D’Angelo) (oldschool-y)
Sugar – If I Can’t Change Your Mind (solo mix) (nostalgic-y)

    Cool. Apologies for the lack of a zip file to download in one go but I buggered it up and really didn’t want to have to go through it all again..
