Where was I? Oh yeah...

Way-hey! No work on Tuesday. How will I pass the time?

* Listen to the new Cut Copy single, Future, especially the Chromeo mix. Stylin'.

* Book flight to Madrid for August holiday. Must also start compiling musical care package to bring to Houman when I arrive, as he insists the Spanish charts are complete rubbish (Shakira? Rubbish? I think not...)

* Begin the search for new shoes as my pair of Gravis sneaks are crumbling. Chuck Taylors as chips.

* Finish reading The Princess Bride. Inconceivable!

* Sleep....zzzzz

Record of the week - Sufjan Stevens 'Illinois'

Second American state themed album from Stevens which reveals more with repeated plays. It's a love letter packed with historical references, neo-classical stop-overs (Reich and Glass anyone?), campfire sing-a-longs, and carefree whimsy that Stevens threads together with ease, making this one of the best LPs I've heard this year. The only question is, will his next 48 albums be just as good?

Major Leaguer bonus

Shock! Latest Harry Potter book leaked five days before release. World keeps turning...

That Chromeo mix is cool hey!
Future came out on Kitsune over a year ago, but it's good to hear that CC are getting plays on Radio 1 n stuff like that!!

Go CC!
