More Third Light Home mumbling as book of the month returns with a look at some of the music touched upon in Simon Reynolds’s Retromania, his meditation upon rock and pop history running out of road. Features the melancholia of the Boards of Canada, the Caretaker and William Basinski; rock action from the early adopters of a retro mindset (Patti Smith; The Flamin Groovies); and a bit of crate digging from Trunk records and Madlib. Nothing may be truly original any more – but does it matter with a slew of beautiful new records from the likes of Fennesz and Emuul, which are also spun?
