Hi Lex. I watched the clip and it is very powerful. One of those where you get so caught up in the film that you don't notice the music as much. Reminded me of my first reaction to David Bridie's "Delegate":

I will watch it again and will also try without the picture so I can concentrate on the music. How did you stumble across it? I hope 'a little relevant for me at the moment" isn't a reference to your mother's health.

I've been meaning to let you know how much I have enjoyed (and am still enjoying) Panic At The Disco and Best Coast, I listen to a lot of indie stuff that, much as I love it, does tend towards the downbeat. Those two discs - Pretty. Odd. and Fade Away - are full of jangly guitars and wall-of-sound-type production and they're just fun. Love all the nods to Sgt Pepper-era Beatles, The Byrds, etc in the former. Thank you for sending them my way - they are getting plenty airplay here.

Anyone heard of 'How to dress well'? Just stumbled on this track. What a voice and powerful arrangements.
WOW! Don't know what his other work is like but I will check him (Tom Krell) out further. The video is quite moving and a little relevant for me at the moment.

"See you fall"

As for you Judd......HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

been rediscovering one of my favorite Aussie bands after a long lay-off: the Triffids! started with their second album, 'Born Sandy Devotional'; here's a nice mellow song from it that i really like:

and another mellow number from their final album, 'The Black Swan', that i also dig a lot:

Judd Collins says:
Yeah, John, if you want to send something along. I'm pretty challenged when it comes to music sharing, so if I can't return the favor, don't hate me, OK? I am trying in vain to keep up with all this newer technology...

possibly, judd! i only got into them this past year; they were my favorite band for awhile there. they're kind of an update/ mix of 60's garage rock, early Stones, Velvet Underground, and a dash of shoegaze/ dreampop-type stuff (My Bloody Valentine, Ride, etc.) shall i send you off a copy electronically?

Senor Savorie, do I need to be giving BJM a listen myself? Obvious answer, right? I got The House of Love's "butterfly" album and it is in heavy rotation already. Hi 'Lex!

Val, Good to know The Waterboys are still kicking around. Modern Blues sounds good so far. Should be a great concert.
Please don't feel pressured about contacting me however I am pleased to know you received the package.

As for Hozier, I first saw him perform on SNL (I think) and was captivated by the presence he had on the stage. His album does demonstrate a variety of influences and in his own words..... "Chicago blues, Texan blues, Chess Records, Motown, and then I discovered jazz, but more importantly, Delta blues that extraordinarily haunting sound. Skip James, Blind Willie Johnson, people like that. Later, it was Pink Floyd, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, plus Tom Waits was a huge, huge influence. I was always drawn to singers with something haunting about their voices."

Just watched the clip with Annie Lennox and yes, she did give a powerful performance. I think I'm smitten with the lad, however. He's only 23 and I too hope he develops further as an artist. Time will tell.

Hi Lex,

I've received your latest gift and have made my way through about 4 so far, including Hozier. I will send you a longer email as I'm already feeling guilty. I had heard a few of his tracks previously and saw him performing at The Grammys. I was just getting into his performance when Annie Lennox joined him and sort of blew him out the water. It was a powerhouse performance from Annie but I did like his guitar solo:

I think he made a mistake in making a 71 minute debut album. It's just too much to take in in one sitting. I can hear a variety of influences but I really need to sit down and give it a hard listen (probably in small doses). I do hope he develops as an artist because he's certainly one of the most interesting new artists.

Much controversy on the radio this morning re Van Morrison duetting with Michael Buble:

Doesn't bother me and I've already pre-ordered the album. I'm loving The Waterboys' Modern Blues and have got my ticket to see them next month.

Really love Hozier's self-titled album. Val, if he tours here, we're going!

Here's a taste: "It will come back"

"Don't let me in with with no intention to keep me
Jesus Christ! Don't be kind to me.
Honey don't feed me - I will come back."


"It can't be unlearned
I've known the warmth of your doorways
Through the cold, I'll find my way back to you
Oh please, give me mercy no more!
It's a kindness you can't afford!"
