New Cornershop and stuff

Long time Eden On The Line readers will know of my soft spot for Cornershop. Their new album Urban Turban is out this week and is streaming here. Good stuff, though a mixed bag of things that has largely already surfaced on their Singhles Club releases. An intersting range of collaborators, but I would like Tjinder to take more of the vocals... Oh well, it'll do for now: better than 95% of the rest, I'd say.

But 'the rest' is going to involve some pretty stiff competition over the next few weeks, with 4 June in particular looking like a prime release day: Neil Young's Americana, Patti Smith's Banga and Dexys' One Day I Will Soar all coming out at once...

And a final mention for Two Wings' Love's Spring, already out on CD and keenly awaited on vinyl (keenly awaited by me, anyway: I've just been hassling them about it on Facebook). On Margate Sounds alumni continue to make good...

There's a taster here, which really doesn't sound like anyone else. That's not just because of Hanna Tuulikki's extraordinary voice - Ben Reynolds' guitar is really distinctive too. And there will always be room for more recorders in rock music...
