Festival Fancies

This Thursday, the headliners are being announced for the Friday and Saturday nights at the Green Man Festival. It’s exciting wondering who’ll be playing and obviously it is bound to be someone quite folky and leftfield. Two acts spring to mind that might fit the bill: Midlake and Sufjan Stevens. I know I’ve seen both within the last six months but I’d love to check them out on a summer’s night out of doors with a starry sky as a backdrop. All will be revealed this week. I’ve used all my internet searching skills to track down rumours but to no avail.

I'm enjoying the Field Music album a great deal. The songs are fabulous and when I'm less busy I'll pen more about it. I note that the recording is a mere 31 minutes long with its eleven songs rattling along at a considerable rate of knots. I didn't think they made 'em like that any more but I'm heartened that they do.

On the message board, someone has said that Mojo has announced Robert Plant and Joanna Newsome...

What do you reckon?

I'm more than happy about Joanna. Not sure what to think about Plant - a legend, of course. I'm not sure if I like legends though.
