Return to Cookie Mountain is out on Monday - hurrah! Suffice to say, it's a beautiful, interesting, sumptuous record.
I actually stopped listening to my stolen version because I wanted to enjoy the CD but yes, yes, it is so wonderful. Album of the year by a fucking mile.
to desperate youths, bloodthirsty babes?
better tunes, arguably. Possibly less immediate in that way that some people think more sophisticated is necessarily less immediate.
maybe apart from the immediacy thing - I found it to be really hooky and easy to get into.
It's fuller-sounding - you know, the fact that they're a full band this time round really shows. It's maybe more conventional in that respect too, but it sounds great for it.
I think they've just gelled more this time and it sounds focused and lush and the songs are beautiful.
a bit of a bore. starts well but got sick of it after about 20 minutes. listened to the zombies instead.
who's your daddy?
Hows the new redjetson record shaping up?
I'm yet to fully get in to return to cookie mountain but its certainly a grower...
about the ulu gig still makes smile...
have yet to listen to this one but looking forward to it.
thanks - still writing though....
