Recent interview on Radio 4's 'The Voices of...' from last week. (I'm sure people outside the UK have the low cunning needed to access it)

Delighted that David Squires has worked on the art for the new album. An accompanying cartoon I believe.

Fantastic song, fantastic video. I couldn't love this any more if I tried.

Excellent. Squires' Grauniad footy work is always a joy.

I found myself realising that it wasn’t a million miles from Belle and Sebastian

I think that would destroy me for a week.

New one just arrived and I'm about halfway through. 2020 is annoying my neighbours less than his previous releases. Looking forward to the comic immensely.

The man himself was in session on Marc Riley's 6Music show tonight - It caught me by surprise as I was doing the washing up and I only heard the last 2 songs but it should be available to listen again for the next few weeks :)

Not sure how I missed this discussion last month, but man, that song is super cool. Sort of inspires the non-musician in me to give it a shot, just to tell a story or two.

Kinda heartbreaking to hear about local Kurds at 5.10 in the song, based on yesterday's betrayal.

I don’t participate much anymore, but just wanted to chime in to say this album is fucking fantastic, and I would still kill to see him.

Due to deeply awful events I’m away from home at my brother’s so have only been able to to listen to the new album on spotify. It’s amazing. The man can do no wrong.

New record just gets better with each listen. I'm listening through headphones for the first time tonight and surprised to hear lots of intricate synthery I didn't really get the first few times around.

I also splashed out on the Hen Ogledd records, which are interesting listening to say the least!
Caroline came into the room when I was playing one and said 'what is this horrible recorder noise?'
Pretty accurate.

I gave 2020 a listen while driving to Kerrville the other day. That guy is on another plane. Loved the jogging song. How does he come up with those chord changes?

Nothing Important was so good to me that I’ve found it hard to adjust to the changes in his albums since, I think. I still haven’t digested peasant, so it’s kind of funny that I have another record by a favourite musician waiting.

I enjoyed that.
