On the plus side the phone company have ignored my send this to work request and instead sent my phone to my home address.
On the downside they tried to do so 8AM.
So on Monday I collect the phone of the future and marvel as it sits at home and charges for 16 hours.
Reading this Nokia N80 Review just makes me want my new phone more. Hurry up Orange. My k700i is looking old, and not just because the 18 month glue failed on the Vodafone badge.
First great musical find artist wise of 2006 at long last.
Partly thanks to emusic flinging a free mp3 at me as a daily download and then thanks to the reviews on emusic saying Pitchfork was not on crack this time.
Fortunately, the artist is tuned on enough to have free downloads of his good songs on his website, so go there and hit the piano for sounds (just under b and e), and get yourself Postcards From Italy at the very least.
I see this as fitting into the genre of slacker indie with odd instrumentation from which my good old Favourites Fog and Why? came from, but the horns and accordians have a lovely old feel to them in contrast to the turntablism, sampling and hip-hop the anticon brethren indulge in. Worth listenning to even if you decide you dislike it. One thing I can’t quite work out is that although he does sing a bit (especially on Postcards From Italy) like Rufus Wainwright he somehow doesn’t annoy me in the same way as Rufus does. Maybe it’s because he is just wailing when he wails.
