Lovesongs On The Radio

If you’re in an online radio kinda mood, check out BBC 1’s 4AD special. Pay particular attention to the end of the show when you can get a first listen to clips of Rachel Goswell’s “Plucked” from Waves Are Universal and Tanya Donelly’s “Whiskey Tango” from Whiskey Tango Ghost (fast forward to around 20:44 for these tracks). Mmm, lovely stuff.

I’m going to stop trying to keep up with release dates for Rachel’s album, by the way. That catalog listing I posted earlier for the North American release on June 22 looked pretty official, but Rachel herself says both the EP and album have been pushed back a week to May 17 and (in the UK) June 14, respectively, and that she has no idea about the North American dates. So, to sum up: EP in May, album in June. Gah.

And as a blast from the past, Under The Radar talks to Rachel about Slowdive and Mojave 3.

The new Luna record is done, look for it late Summer, touring to follow.

The big news today everywhere else is the GBV breakup. Geez, that is so yesterday. Matador will be issuing a formal press release on the split today, I’ll post it when it hits the cables. For now, here’s a requiem from GBV fan #1 LHB along with his own personal soundtrack for the wake.

We have overhauled the Lake Holiday website. Take a look if you’re so inclined.

    It’s a great year for female vocalists, it seems. The Sarah Harmer record is in my top ten, for sure, thanks for reminding me.

    If any band deserved an Irish wake, it’s GBV…
