Soul mining, the classic album by The The from 1983, has just been reissued. Great to hear something from it, the wonderful 'This is the day'. And thinking of 1983, some other British white soul from Edwyn Collins and friends in Orange Juice. Yes.
Another album reissued is the debut from The Clientele from 2000. That sounds brilliantly fresh in its melancholy shades of Byrdsian jangle. Interesting too to compare it to Alasdair MacLean's new group Amor de Dias.
A trio of Vacilando 68 related releases. Howe Gelb and friends with some luscious space-themed country exotica; Theatre Royal with some lovely nostalgic guitar pop; and Samuel Frank with an intriguing mixture of breakbeats and folk music. Fascinating.
OOIOO, The Altered Hours, UMA.
And some German lounge lizardry from Christer Bladin from 1974, compiled on The In Kraut series. Wildkatze!
