it’s 1968. the ohio born, but british honoree, releases his second solo album apart from the walker brothers. it is comprised of covers, reworkings, and originals, all of them outstanding and classic. “jackie” was originally a jacques brel song released two years prior, but in turn became one of walker’s more recognizable songs from his solo career. scott walker is famously eccentric and an absolute force in music history. his last album released in 2006, the drift, took him ten years to make, which has been his trend since 1974′s we had it all.
i’ve made silly pacts with friends before in my younger years, but nothing involving eating each others spit. the new video for james blake’s “lindisfarne”, which is a combination of lindisfarne i and ii from his self-titled debut album, is an odd and strangely captivating narrative of a group of friends as they bid adieu to one friend in their circle. mr. blake himself makes a cameo. the video certainly makes anything i might have ever deemed as weird in my childhood seem quite normal. enjoy.
moonface – organ music not vibraphone like i’d hoped – fast peter
spencer krug of wolf parade, sunset rubdown, and swan lake is set to release his debut album in august as his most recent outfit, moonface, which he started in 2009. the new album will be what the title suggests, an organ heavy 37 minute beaut. this single is eight minutes of fast organ juggling that’s both impressive and enchanting. paired with his trademark vocals, it’s all together worth every second. moonface.ca
