The Listening Club - 8th April 2018

Greetings folks,

Hope you're all doing fine. Back after a fun week in England (Thanks to Jim for running things in my absence), catching up with folks (some #LC company included, happy to say), and returning to a considerably warmer Amsterdam, which jumped 10 degrees in our absence, and is now fairly basking in near 20 degress of celcius loveliness. So a weekend of spring cleaning has been the order of the day, and now that every window in the house is sparkling and letting in maximum early evening light, time to get on with this here business...

Last week, @AndersHanson was in the chair, and delivered Breton's "Other People's Problems", which seemed to go down well, and encourage an interesting discussion on the pros and cons of over-compression into the deal. Many thanks to Anders for the pick, and for sailing the frisb across to @saucer, who's here with tonight's intro...

"This album's country of origin is obvious from the first notes, if you know any music from there.

30 or so years ago I bought an album whose cover was a blurry picture of a creepy marionette. You know the one I mean, right? Wasn't sure, on early listens, whether it was amazing or quaint... but kept listening and came to slowly approach the not-so-profound realization that music could be both. 

Then I never stopped loving that album or its feel. 

I had the same sort of early reaction on first hearing tonight's band. Could a 21st-century band manifest the same spirit? 

Drinking club suggestion: something grown in volcanic soil."
