I rarely get hangovers especially on school nights where you will more likely than not find me at home with a cup of tea. Last night was different. I caught up with an old friend I hadn't seen in yonks and we saw the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. I love their sound, their kick-arse attitude and the main man interspersing the music with a Southern Baptist preacher's fervour. The gig was great, the poor venue notwithstanding but I am paying for it this morning. I think some reflective music is in order and somehow we can get through this day together.
Stina Nordenstam - 'Circus'
Sigur Ros - 'Untitled VII'
Conquering Animal Sounds - 'Bear'
The Low Anthem - 'To Ohio (Reprise)'
