...pending a short holiday.
Three quick things to register:
- .dash's Chaika Casino at Theatre Souk is not to be missed - a fascinating piece, very inventively staged. With a free pinball table and vodka, if you need any more inducements
- Neil Young's Le Noise is at the top of my current playlist - review to follow. In fine voice, with solo electric guitar, in a distinctive aural setting from Daniel Lanois (hence the punning title).
- less convinced by a first listen to Sufjan Stevens' The Age of Adz. The quirkiness has become ponderous, the melodies less accessible; I was reminded at times of Rufus Wainwright, showing off - which isn't something to aim for. Maybe it's a grower...
