Daniel Johnston

Daniel Johnston is a prolific American singer-songwriter and one of my all time favourites. He has a new album out on Eternal Yip Eye Music. It's called "Is And Always Was" and it has been produced by Jason Falkner. Here is a video of his most famous song.

Today I have discovered a wonderful new female vocalist on Warp Records: LoneLady! The single entitled "Immaterial" is her first release with Warp. It's a very fine pop song, and it was co-produced with Guy Fixsen, previously known for his work with My Bloody Valentine, The Breeders and Stereolab. The b-side sounds like The Slits.

The Desert Wolves

The Desert Wolves compilation is now available again with four bonus tracks (three of them previously unreleased) on Firestation Records. The first release of this compilation was in 2000 on the same label.
The Desert Wolves play melodic guitar pop. They've been one of the best groups from Manchester in the late 80s with chiming guitars, melodic trumpets, a thumbing rhythm section and a voice, so lovely, so sweet, so heartfelt and as soft as peanut butter. There have been a lot of indie bands producing music like this, but only a few reach the purity of sound The Desert Wolves have evolved.
