Phew. The essays (sub-standard, unfortunately) have been handed in. It’s all old news now, so normal service will now resume!
Just a quick note. If you’re reading via an RSS feed and you’re interested in the reviews I’m writing for Speakers Push the Air, I haven’t been putting the links in actual posts for a bit now. They have their own little box on the home page of the blog, up there. Here’s a run-down of what I’ve done recently:
- Boards of Canada — The Campfire Headphase. When chickens aren’t sneezing, they’re saying “boc boc boc”. Since October 18th they’ve occasionally shaken their heads in mild disappointment.
- The Fiery Furnaces — Rehearsing My Choir. It’s a concept album about their gran. Ah! Pink Floyd didn’t think of that one, eh!
- AFX — Hangable Auto Bulb. Richard D James can’t wait to buy that new tank.
- Gravenhurst — Fires in Distant Buildings. Warp are rockin’ it up… again. I now seem to be Speakers’ unofficial Warp correspondent.
