Cancon



Indeed it has been awhile since I have posted anything. I would plead for forgiveness but in all honesty I haven't been that busy, in fact I rather enjoyed my 2 weeks of nothingness. Moreover I believe that I am rested up enough to contribute a little more regularly, at least more regularly than Thom.

Second order of business is the Bon Iver Album, self-released last year, picked up by jagjaguwar this year, and soon to be released in the UK (already release here in Canada) on the 12th. The album was recorded in a cabin in the wilderness, and as my friend Ewan described it, think of it as the lead singer from TV on the Radio alone in a room with a tape recorder. Fantastic Album, I cannot say enough good things about it.
