And since the last diary entry:
- The new Tim Berne album on ECM which is rather fine indeed – typical Berne performances however this time with a modicum of modal meandering which is perhaps more in keeping with his first leader role on the famous record lable.
- A couple of new tracks from the impressive Comet Sands available here – tracks 1 and 2 are the new ones. And very fine they are as a well.
- The Christophers are offering a free download of their new single “Wisdom” here – up to their usual standard I have to say. You can see them live opening for Brooklyn based band The Static Jacks at `the Manchester Roadhouse on February 26th (sunday) from 7pm. For more info visit www.thechristophersmusic.co.uk
- Enjoying the Paper Tiger Illuminated EP on Mind on Fire – fascinating mix of styles.
- Impressed with the sound of Naked Veins from Swinton – just waiting for some tracks from the band.
- As reviewed elsewhere on the blog the new EP from The Kindest of Thieves is rather yummy.
