So I’m choked with the cold….AGAIN!! arrrgggghhh. I just cannot shake this bloody illness. I have been trying for weeks now and it just keeps coming back again and again and every time it seems to bring reinforcements. It’s 6.30am. I’ve been awake since 5am. I have been unable to sleep due to a runny nose or being blocked up. So I’ve been downloading music, working out Graveyard Tapes stuff and just listening to very chilled out music. The Rustle of Stars by Richard Knox and Frederic D. Oberland to be precise. It’s just stunning. Review to follow shortly.
Anyways, as you may know, being a blogger and being based in Scotland I have been involved for the past three years with the Scottish Bloggers and Music Writers (BAMS) award run by Lloyd who writes Peenko. The Phantom Band won the first year and last year it was The National who came out on top. Well, this year the votes have been counted and verified and the winner of best album of 2011, as voted by the BAMS, is Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat with their debut record ‘Everything’s Getting Older’. A fine winner. A worthy winner. This pleases me greatly. Anyways, if you’d like to know more and read a wee interview Lloyd did with the pair you can do so HERE. Enjoy.
