Song of the day

"Echoes of Songs (for Trish Keenan)", by Simian Ghost.

Simian Ghost have pulled on my heartstrings once before. Here, they do it again, with a song inspired by / dedicated to Trish Keenan, the much missed singer with Broadcast (whose loss is felt more keenly by the day, as we continue not to discover where that fine band was going to take us next on what seemed, and still does, a limitless journey through musical space). Life sucks sometimes, but if its suckiness occasionally gives rise to such beautiful things as this song, well, it's not entirely bad.
