NEW AND NOTABLE: upcoming albums
#61
New album in the works by Penguin Cafe. Yay!! Love 'em. It's called Handfuls of Night and is inspired by Arthur Jeffes visit to Antarctica and his fascination (and tenuous family connection) with Scott, not to mention the penguin species endemic to that vast icy continent! Especially interesting to me at this time as various things Antarctica related keep on popping up on my radar. I recently attended a talk by a local doctor who sailed to Antarctica on the 104 year old tall ship 'Bark Europa' - absolutely riveting. I didn't know about blue icebergs (or a whole host of other stuff) - gorgeous looking things. 

A preview track titled "At the Top of the Hill, They Stood" ...

Pearl Jam have a new album on the way - Gigaton. Talking Heads here for sure. I quite like some of Eddie's solo stuff but was never a Pearl Jam fan. Are they heading in a different direction??

Pearl Jam were always my favourite Grunge band but I didn't like everything they have released.
like you, I prefer Eddie's solo material.
love his vocal style.

on this track, oh yeah...Talking Heads all over it, I love it!

I'll take Neil Young over the rest.

How exciting! Roger Eno and Brian Eno are soon to release an album – March sometime. It’s titled Mixing Colours (with a 'u' please note - hallelujah! Big Grin ) and the songs are all appropriately named. My brain is working overtime trying to figure out whether these 18 colours are from a specific palette? From a painting?? Or the other way around – all the hues one might use to create a landscape? They are the shades a watercolourist might have, or mix up, and I shall continue to speculate until all is revealed! If indeed anything IS to be revealed and I’m not just imagining things, which is quite likely! Lol!!

Anyway – I take it the pieces are intended to sonically describe the colour, its essence and associations which is a fabulous concept, IMHO.  I like Roger Eno’s work but haven’t been smitten with anything Brian has done of late. They’ve worked together often on projects but never released a proper collaboration, as far as I know. From what I have read, it seems this came together organically, over a period of time. Looking greatly forward to hearing the whole lot.

“Celeste” – sky blue / heavenly blue / pale turquoise blue – that glorious clear, dazzling colour that makes you go all airy and expansive inside …
