Merry Christmas to everyone as I finish up my last paper of the semester :)
Massive Attack, after releasing their fourth album in February next year, is reportedly going to be doing a couple of collaborations, one with Mos Def and one with Tom Waits. The former will be awesome - they’ve worked together before and the result was “I Against I” on the Blade 2 soundtrack, a great song. Without the lyrical limitations of that song (since it was, after all, written for a soundtrack) holding them back, I expect really great things from this collaboration. The latter is just… kind of weird. I’m really looking forward to hearing it and seeing what the hell happens.
Oh yeah, and Opeth is touring the US and Canada, that’s pretty exciting. Just bought my ticket for the show at the Irving Plaza in NYC. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of crowd is there.
