Huh? That’s right. Spiritualized are back with their new album “Sweet Heart Sweet Light”. It’s like Jason Pierce disappears for years at a time but has an impeccable knack of always picking up where he left off. And he does good epics, like “Hey Jane”…
Thank you Claps and Guilt Ridden Pop – no idea how you came across us but we’re glad you did and we hope you don’t mind our loosely calling you an updated Minimal Wave band.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Minimal Wave, still no news on when or if any material from our favourite band of that period, Lufthansa Terminal, will be released but lots of information on the record label itself over at Dangerous Minds.
And that’s not the only correspondence we got this week.
Adam Macaulay of the Brighton, England duo Curxes emailed us about the painstakingly hand-crafted video that Roberta Fidora made for their new single “Haunted Gold”. Love the stonking beat and belting vocals. Modern cabaret disco at its very best! See the video below…
If you need some fresh ideas and fresh music allow us to recommend freaky French label Circus Company. Free mixes and podcasts are available from their Soundcloud page or podcasts page. Fill your boots. Or iPod. Or harddrive. Or whatever.
Spanky mentioned the idea of musical checks and balances on the RDU Breakfast Show yesterday morning. So, with Fraserhead away, will an unbalanced Joint have enough self-regulation to stop itself descending into an unrelenting mix of happy hardcore, bagpipe jazz,blackened crust and zydeco?
