Not Much To Say

I've always liked Leftfield in a casual sense. Any time I've heard them, I've liked what I was hearing.

This is the only thing I've ever managed to buy.

Leftfield - Rhythm and Stealth. Used.

Every time I press play all I can think of is Twin Peaks.

It's soothing.

"Marble World" less soothing. Still good.

Silver Fox - Waves On In/Marble World. iTunes.

Not particularly new anymore but...

Bloodsports doesn't come close to the quality of the debut, Dog Man Star or the Stay Together EP. But holy shit, it's Suede, so it's still better than most releases.

I actually think it's better than A New Morning, which was good, but a bit underwhelming. I think Bloodsports is as good as the often underrated Coming Up.

I first heard Suede on a family trip to England in 1993. I picked up the debut immediately. Yet in twenty years I still haven't managed to see them. One of my life's great musical regrets.

Their return gives me hope. But it hasn't happened yet.

Suede - Bloodsports. amazon.com. New.

Since a lot of younger bands seem to be channeling the sounds of the nineties, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the return of female fronted indie rock in the vein of Helium, Unrest, Velocity Girl, Tsunami, etc...

I can't be the only one.

Maybe it already exists.

Helium - The Magic City. amazon.com. Used.
