My name will remain an unclimbable mountain in life

Am I the only one that can’t get into that John Grant CD that everyone else is mad for?

For anyone else, how about Bella Union stablemate Lone Wolf? I’m really enjoying the new  record, The Devil and I. It’s got some beautiful quick-to-stand-out tracks like “This is War” and “Keep Your Eyes on the Road”; a number of slow burners, and a few songs that I feel have more to offer as I get to know them.

If you look up Lone Wolf on YouTube, you’ll find a kinda fun official video for “Keep Your Eyes on the Road”, which is a tribute to the Sledgehammer video from the eighties. (Won’t post it here though – never liked the original).

But increasingly these days I find that some of the unofficial films are more satisfying. Here’s one put together by someone called Victttory which is really charming, combining the photos of Gregory Crewdson with the cheerful bitterness of “15 Letters”.
