At least he didn't try the Diefenbaker (a Canadian insider joke).

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

"'I Let the Sun Go Down.' Everything about it, from the restrained, poignant vocal," a vocal similar to 'the puppet has cut his strings, i think. great falsetto as well. As for Adieu, being Canadian, i'm used to a wide "range" of French accents, and i think the song itself...some...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

something discussed on hoffman starting to make a bit of sense. love this cd on earphones, but when i play it on my system, it sounds...how do i put this? ... too loud, or, better, like a solid wall of sound that, when i turn it up to hear various elements, nothing seems to 'stand out' exactly. hard...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

A fine word, I'd say, and very useful for this album. Finding I'm still overwhelmed in listening to it. I'm really trying not to say that I think it is one of the very best he's done. As someone said above, this venture is so thick with ideas, melodies, images, that it takes time for the songs to &q...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

First time all the way through. I'm stunned. Davey and Pete are so good, so important on this. And so many other things to say. The production, the background vocals, those bass things that one reviewer called 'raised eyebrows'. Can't wait to listen through again, beginning to end. The lingering aft...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Parts of "I Let the Sun Go Down" remind me of "The Puppet has Cut His String," especially his voice and shreds of the melody/melancholy.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Burnt Sugar, the flat trumpet notes -- are they flat or just some lovely weird chord in the brass? fabulous. i LOVE all these songs. wow. but, as has been said, only after several listens.

A cut and paste (w. thanks to Neil from the Mary Ann Hobbs thread) if you want to hear Don't Look Now and Stripping Paper. The main show includes plays of Stripping Paper and Don't Look Now: https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/play/m0000mzb in the main show, interview starts around 144, songs around 152 don...

Re: Elvis on Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC radio 6), Oktober 6 & 7, 2018

in the main show, interview starts around 144, songs around 152
don't look now, 2:30, beautiful.

interview restarts at 2:05

stripping paper starts at 2:10.27
heartbreaking and exact
some of the best singing he's done and the clarity of the recording is fabulous.

end of the interview begins at 2:19

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

back in the day when FM radio actually existed, songs -- i'm thinking of first hearing Tokyo Storm Warning or radio radio, or, in fact, hearing Elvis at the El Mocambo live on CHUM-FM in early 1978 -- would 'come out' before the full album and could, sometimes, even be found by rummaging in -- what ...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

and the oboe! shades of Smokey Robinson, as is the song itself. overall, these songs feel sonically 'similar'...hard for me to describe -- arrangements, background vocals, that oboe (it's in under lime, too...it is an oboe, yes?). over 50+ years of listening, sometimes songs on albums used to sound ...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

"A masterpiece salvaged from cancer's jaw" is one of the most horrible pieces of writing I have ever read, let alone a horrible sentiment/idea. Wow. Very impressive.
