I'm delighted to hear that Two Wings are swinging back into action, having laid somewhat low after releasing the excellent Love's Spring and playing one of my gigs of the year in 2012.
You can hear a new song 'Peace-Fear' here, accompanied by an endearingly odd video. It's a powerful group performance with some lovely guitar and vocals, and subtly effective keyboards dropping in. Bodes well for their second album A Wake, which is due in April.
How about a gig in Brighton this time?
It has been a slightly slow start to my musical 2014, with no gigs so far and not much in the way of new record purchases. Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes is, of course worthy of your attention, but don't go in with them too high... There are some lovely songs, notably 'Harry's Place' and '41 Shots', but also some stuff that (by The Boss's standards) is more like filler. Plus I still don't really get Tom Morello, much as he seems to energise his compadre.
Anyway, nice to have some more releases to look forward to. Now, if Wussy could get round to finishing the album they said they were recording last summer, things would really be looking up.
