Edition of FIFTY! You lucky son of a gun. Speaking of picture books, I'm sure you're looking forward to PJ Harvey & Seamus Murphy's The Hollow Of The Hand:

 


I'll go out on a date with Viv Albertine before I can afford the limited edition box, but I'm going for the hardback over the paperback gotta rock those "highest quality photographic reproductions"...

Even though it seems undecipherable, I am very interested in Bill Nace's graphic work a great deal. I also have "drawings: winter 2005", which is a very lovely and strange hand-made accordion-style book of abstract drawings. I'd like such work to be more accesible, but most of it is now impossible to find.

I'm looking very much forward to "The Hollow of the Land", and I'll be glad to fall deeper into poverty by purchasing the best edition I could possibly afford. I'm not going for the reader's version, either.

I love printed matter, and I will be forever addicted to Marhaug Forlag's catalog. I'd recommend anyone to check out Stunt Rock #3: "MoE-Music to the People", and also to blast every record by MoE and all related projects.

I've been notified by Sub Pop that my order (placed last week) has shipped, and even though it will take a while for the record to get to my door, I'm wondering if they would have possibly included an acoustic EP as they did in the past two releases ("C'Mon Acoustic", "The Visible End"). That would be pretty ace.

Those bonus discs were announced on the site beforehand though, weren't they? I was also thinking about extra material if one ordered the album from Sub Pop, but apparently this time it's "just" ;) the main record.

AllMusic, on the other hand, isn't crazy about it:

Yay polarization!

Loving this. Already prefer it to Invisible Way. Great album, as expected.

Chantal Acda plays a low cover in this Studio Brussel session:

she was a support act for Low a couple years ago when she had a band named sleepingdog. She's now performing under her own name and has just released her second album. Highly recommended ;-)
