Unpredictable can be exactly that

So The Columbus Dispatch and the Cleveland Plain Dealer have reviews of a recent Todd Gigs and the unpredictable grouchy Todd did not go down universally well with the reviewers -or indeed some of the commentators "He is so talented but can be patronizing. I do not bother going to see him live anymore, I don't know why he still tours, he doesn't seem to enjoy it".

I recall his shows at Ronnie Scott's a few years back and my gf certainly thought he was a bit of an arse on one of those nights. Maybe it explains why usually he doesn't talk much at his gigs and just plays the songs.

It's All About the Books

Ok, it maybe that i'm a librarian by profession, but really loved this.

The Mount Desert Island High School version of Meghan Trainor's "All About The Bass" is rather splendid.

and, of course, the also splendid original - certainly one of the best pop records of 2014
