Monday's Long Song
There's always something mildly disappointing, not to say a little depressing, about the end of August bank holiday. The weather is often well past the height of summer, the new school year hangs over it like a flat grey cloud, autumn is just around the corner, only a day away, and this year more than most it seems like a hollow celebration.
But anyway, cheer up.... this e.p. came out back in June, Where Things Are Hollow 2 by Pye Corner Audio, a follow up to a 2017 e.p. (inspired by and dedicated to the memory of Mr Weatherall) with three new Pye Corner Audio tracks and a remix courtesy of John Talabot, a record full of analogue electronics and pulses and dreamy ambient sounds. The John Talabot remix of Resist is fairly full on, verging into techno territory, hypnotic and beguiling with a bassline that bounces around like a wasp in a jamjar. Buy it at Bandcamp.
