The show today was a more chilled-out affair than I’d planned, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

One of the pleasant surprises was a recommendation from Jeffrey McManus to get some of Seu Jorge’s Bowie covers from the soundtrack of the movie The Life Aquatic. I missed the movie, so I didn’t know he was in it. But I have a lot of other Seu Jorge stuff and I’ll have to get to that in the next show, in two weeks time.

Aside from Seu Jorge’s Bowie covers, the discovery of the week for me has to be Alice Russell’s new CD, “My Favourite Letters.”
