Song of the day

"We Are The Sleepyheads", by Belle and Sebastian. "The Life Pursuit", in case you were wondering, is a record that grows and grows. My first impression, which was that it was lacking what made "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" so special (i.e., Trevor Horn), has proved to be rather wide of the mark.

Today I was allowed to have the car (it doesn't happen often, and is not as green as taking the bus: hey, I'm a hypocrite) and it has been a pleasure to have this album as accompaniment. Stevie Jackson is one of the finest guitarists of the modern era, I reckon. I wonder what they're up to.
