A Tune A Day For 2011 #40

It’s hard to choose a song when you don’t have your ipod on you and you’re not actually listening to anything.  So I’ve written about Sleepingdog today and therefore I choose ‘Polish Love Song’ from the forthcoming record, which you can hear at the link in the previous post.


New Sleepingdog Record

I am delighted to say that Sleepingdog aka Chantal Acda (and occasionally on record and live Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid)) will be releasing her new record ‘With Our Heads In The Clouds And Our Hearts In The Fields’ on April 25th through Gizeh Records.  The album is available to pre-order now from the here both as vinyl and cd.

It has been a long time, or it feels like a long time since Chantal’s last record ‘Polar Life’ and so I am very happy that this record will be coming out soon.  I’ve heard the whole thing and it’s just fantastic.  It’s a big progression in my opinon,  so I really would encourage everyone to go pre-order their copy now.  She’s become a very good friend to me since we first met and I cannot recommend her music highly enough.  As always with Gizeh, it’s a quality release.  Enjoy.

Radiohead Announce New Album

Quite frankly this has made my week.  Radiohead are without a shadow of a doubt one of my favourite artists of all time.  They’d be up there with Tom Waits, Wilco, Mogwai and Sparklehorse on my list of important artists.  So it’s such amazing news that they have announced the release of their new album ‘The King Of Limbs’.    Pre-sale has started here.  I have high expectations for this record following the excellent ‘In Raindbows’, so I will look forward with great anticipation to this new record.  I doubt very much that it will disappoint anyone with ears.
