My internet problems are still present, but the music won’t be stopped! It marches through my veins like giant radioactive rubber pants! The pants command me. Do not ignore my veins! </Invader Zim reference>
My pick for this week is a track off the charity compilation Dark Was The Night, in which the North American experimental electronica folk band The Books team up with less experimental Swedish-Argentinian singer-songwriter José González to cover Nick Drake’s “Cello Song”.
I’m not sure if The Books really needed the help of José on this one, as they’ve done a perfectly fine solo performance of the song previously. All the same, it’s a wonderful take on a wonderful tune, relaxing, and it helped re-introduce me to the music of Nick Drake.
