Something really interesting about Ken Burns and his bias against fusion.
I’m somewhat disappointed by Sigur Rós‘ Von (their 1997 debut album only released in Iceland), which I got a few days ago. It’s pretty good, much more laid-back than Ágætis byrjun, more subtle and less over-the-top. But somehow I feel like it’s missing the magic that makes Ágætis byrjun so damn good. Hmm… a few more listens are needed, I guess.
The CMJ New Music Report gave the new Tortoise a glowing review. This one looks to be a definite must-get.
