Polite Notice: Good Shoes – again.

Been a bit busy these past couple of weeks so lack of updates. The above is a Good Shoes tour diary. It’s not got great sound on it, but it’s reasonably amusing. I saw them last week at ULU in London and it was pretty good, despite my mammoth hangover after getting in from Fabric the same day at 7am in the morning.

Perhaps ULU wasn’t the best venue for them though.  It’s not really a great venue for anyone to be honest.

Luckily, I am now away out of this cold country (it’s going to ‘feel like minus ten next week. MINUS TEN!) to head to the sandy shores of Goa. Love it.

The above is in no way related to jamming on the beach on Christmas day.  It is utterly excellent though, and I’ve come across it so very late.  Glacially epic. Perfect for that walk home through an industrial estate in Acton on your way back from work when it’s dark, damp and rubbish.

I’ll leave you with this.  Skipping straight over the Christmas songs (Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me for Christmas No.1? Stupidly ironic) let’s get to incredibly twee songs for New Years.

Sigur Rós are pretty much my favourite band in the world and now the lead singer Jónsi is going to release a solo album in March 2010. Great news.  Below is the first song that’s emerged on das internet and it’s utterly lovely.  Download it and listen.

Oh yeah, a lilikoi is a passion fruit apparently.

Nico Muhly arranged the strings, and they’re pretty amazing I think you’ll agree.
