Music - The Horrors and The Dark Night of the Soul.

Sorry that I haven't posted anything in awhile... I just moved and do not have the internet anymore, also I have been enjoying this wonderful weather we have been having!!!!

I just recently listened to the new album by The Horrors called Primary Colors. It's a refreshing change to their usual "Birthday Party" influenced rock to a more psychedelic approach. There are a couple tracks that stand out but "Who can say" is one of the best tracks off the album. I love their Shirelle's breakdown in the middle of the song.

I illegally downloaded a copy of The Dark Night of the Soul. Which is a collaboration with DJ Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse and David Lynch. Tons of people have supplied vocals to the project including Vic Chestnut, Frank Black, Iggy Pop, etc. Due to a dispute with their record label EMI, the album may never be released, however the book is available for sale on the official website for Dark Night of the Soul along with a blank recordable CDR. Dangermouse and crew have been encouraging everyone to steal the music online. A lot of my friends that I've made copies for seem to be into it. I think I need to give it another listen through... I am more into obtaining the book of photography by David Lynch.
