Olivia Dean

Saw her on Jules's Hootanany, didn't know who she was but what a voice.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I really love Meddle. Might have to give it another spin later!

Black Night - Deep Purple. It would appear that my brain can translate the sounds, into where my fingers should be, to reproduce the sound on my bass guitar. The main riff all felt natural just playing it, from memory, and consulting t'internet revealed the rest as quite easy to replicate too. Don't get me wrong, I could not play this on stage, but I could probably play along to the record and get 90% right (right notes, right order, not necessarily at the right time!)

The Byrds. 8 Miles High. I love it but it's become an ear worm.

The Last Dinner Party's 'Preclude to Ecstasy'

I'd forgotten I pre-ordered a signed copy. Nice surprise when it turned up yesterday. Great debut album. They remind me of both Queen and Lana Del Ray.
Also a shame I'd forgotten about the pre-order, as I'd streamed the album 3 times already.

Another ear worm developed Monday, and I ended up downloading the tabs and learning the bass line, then played along to the live version (which unbeknownst to me at the time, is played faster than the studio recording). I was absolutely buzzing with excitement at the time and for a long time afterwards. My wife came in from shopping halfway through the frenzy and (even*) she said it sounded really good.

The track? "On A Rope" by Rocket From The Crypt.

So yesterday during my ride, a CD of RFTC's album "Scream, Dracula, Scream!" dropped onto my doormat, and this morning it got played (without any preconceived expectations that the album would actually be any good (quite the opposite in fact) and to my surprise) it wasn't complete crap, and I enjoyed it. So much so that I played it and listened to it all the way through again!

* she doesn't dish out compliments willingly - least of all to me, and least of all to me when the bass amp is turned on.

Faouzia...  I think she has a stunning voice.

Oh - and a bit of Nana Mouskouri (how's that for a blast from the past).

Should I ever need walk-on music, it's a toss-up between this and Back in Black, and this edges it.
