The new My Bloody Valentine album.

Yes, there's a new My Bloody Valentine album, 21 years after Loveless. In terms of long-awaited releases that nobody actually expected to ever see, this is kind of as if Guns 'n Roses' Chinese Democracy had come out as a soundtrack to Duke Nukem Forever.

What it's like? Well, it's a nice album. Sounds a lot like the last one. Not revolutionary. Not great. But quite good if you like that sort of thing.

Definitely the "listen" of the holiday was Woodkid "The Golden Age" album. And DaftPunk - which was playing everywhere in France anyway.

Today (thank you, Radio 3) I have been mainly listening to the rather beautiful:


Which makes a change from the insanely catchy:



which Daughter Number One has playing on her tablet every ten minutes. (Alternating with other Hatsune Miku tracks - did you know 'her' name comes from merging the Japanese words for first (初 hatsu), sound (音 ne) and future (Miku (ミク). No? Nor did I till I was solemnly told so this morning by my semi-obsessed daughter. I think she's turning Japanese.

Now this is a Polish singer I first heard of in the Palimpsest, Stewart mentioned her. Now she is one of my favourites. From the new album:





Donít follow, I just donít follow
Must have grown old when I wasnít looking
Iím sorry, Iím in a hurry
All this beauty crashing into me incessantly
I need a deadline I need a friend

They have many great songs, at first I wanted to post my all time favourite of theirs Beat Beat My Heart but this one feels right for the winter. Vandaveer: But Enough On That For Now.



All the best in the new year, Palimpsest!

Thank you, Col.




I went to their concert in May. Amazing. My husband discovered them listening to the audiobook of Dick's Ubik - they did the soundtrack.
