Anyone remember the three fine live recordings by The Boombox Hearts at The Copenhagen X Sessions I posted last month? If you do and enjoyed them, you'll probably be thrilled to learn that the recordings are now available as free downloads. Plenty of other stuff to download there as well including recording by Giana Factory, Kissaway Trail, Sleep Party People, just to mention a few.

The four tracks that will be included on the forthcoming Moonstruck EP by Champagne Riot can be streamed at Soundcloud. As always the songs are electronic, lovely and catchy! No official release info to be found anywhere online, but if the small flyer I found in a parcel recently received from Matinée Recordings is to be trusted, the EP will (at some point) be out on the world’s finest indie label. Awaiting verification…

What was in that parcel you ask? The new Northern Portrait 7” single Life Returns To Normal. In a stunningly beautiful cover, pressed on clear vinyl and just one of a thousand copies made. Wish “life returns to normal” meant a return to the 80’s, where collecting limited edition singles like this was great fun. Not going to comment on the songs, as it must be rather tedious reading the exact same raving comments every time I’m mentioning the band.

Has yet to make up my mind whether or not to buy a ticket for the Warpaint concert at Loppen Tuesday evening. Would love to go and I know I’ll regret it if I don’t. But the concert will most likely start 11 p.m. or later meaning that I’ll be home and in bed at around 1.30 a.m. And the outlook of spending the following day regretting that I went (because it’s hardly rocket science to predict that I’ll be very, very tired) isn’t really that appealing.
Planning to post “Catching up – part III” tomorrow.
