According to the TR Connection there will be a major announcement this week from the UK promoting the new Todd CD (UK tour dates? PLEASE!) - which comes out 5 April. The Album is apparently " Very spiritual, electronic and is kind of like a full circle to Initiation/Real Man and Todd era ". Sounds interesting.

Spin the black circle

This week's listening was kicked off by watching 'Lost in Translation' and hearing both 'Just Like Honey' by The Jesus & Mary Chain and 'Sometimes' by My Bloody Valentine , and thinking, I own those albums!

My Bloody Valentine - Loveless. I still really love this record, and 'When You Sleep' remains one of my all-time favourite tracks fromthe period.
The Jesus & Mary Chain - Psychocandy. You know, they sound a bit like the BRMC ...LOL. The kings of low-fi feedback indie rock. Still a classic.
Joss Stone - The Soul Sessions. Came back to Joss this week as a balance to the feedback driven rock of JMC and MBV

And the Single:

Powder - Up Here. Big on the live scene in LA by all accounts, the video for this is mad, and the lead singer looks like drew barrymore in drag. Actually the song sounds better without the video distraction. I love it.
