That is, quite possibly, the most tortured pun I’ve ever tried. And I’ve tried a few. I’m not even going to try and explain. Anyway, this post is a quick one about how rubbish I am at the music blogging lark.
Generally, one of the points of music blogging is having some semblance of being up to date and that. I fail dismally at this. Some PR people, bless their little cotton socks, send me stuff early and I think “Oooh, must listen to that soon”. Then I forget. I’m a forgetful sort.
T’other day I got an email about PJ Harvey’s new album. “Oooh, that’s early, I’ll have a nice leisurely listen then post something”. Two days later, nada. Nuffin. And then The Grauniad and Pitchfork and everyone gets on it and I miss out on getting into it early, and dragging some more people into here, kicking and screaming, to read about me moaning on about Spoon and Arcade Fire and people talking during gigs and how old I am and blahdiblahdiblah.
So anyway, here’s Polly Jean’s new one. New album “Let England Shake” out on February 15, 2011.
I like her.
