Because I’ve been home from work the past two days feeling like this, I haven’t spent much quality time with my computer.
Fortunately, I logged on to discover that Elbow is streaming a clip of a new song, The Bones of You, at its Web site. The song is off a new album due in March titled The Seldom Seen Kid (via).
It’s kinda hard to form much of an opinion from a short clip, but so far I like what I hear. Listen here.
ALSO, this Friday at the Last Exit in Tempe is the CD-release show for Source Victoria, previously discussed here. The Phoenix New Times had some nice, if not esoteric, things to say about the record, The Fast Escape, which was mixed by Grammy winner Chris Testa (Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Eat World).
Also on the bill: Traindead, Reubens Accomplice and Sam and Nate from the Format.
More on this record soon. In the meantime, a track … whose literary inspiration can be found here.
