Current listening...

You' ll be relieved to hear i tracked down the Felice Brothers new album (i'm sure!), and very fine it sounds too, particularly the lovely Waits-like 'Sailor Song'. The beauty of anything by the Felice Brothers, on the previous two records at least, is their slow-burn appeal, so looking forward to delving deeper into this one.

I also tracked down a second hand copy of James Iha's (ex Smashing Pumpkins) only solo album, Let it come Down, on CD. I first bought this on cassette before travelling to the West Coast of America in 1998, and so maybe my judgement is skewed, but for me this is an amazing lost record, a surprising and lovely country-soul gem.
