Random questions and unrelated ephemera... Has anyone heard Dan Whitehouse? Click on my MySpace below and a track of his is on there. Click him on my friends to see/hear more. Interested to hear objective outside opinions. He's growing on me, but can't put my finger on why exactly...is it just me? Someone here mentioned Doves and that they were seeing them...? Can't recall who. I saw them last night. Fantastico! Have to see them again. I think they're doing the Hop Farm Fest in July, which I'm going to to see The Twang. Hope they're on same day. Two days at a festival is one too many for me. Talking of the Twangers (and I haven't done for awhile), new album (working title Not Tonight, It's Monday - as of the recent past at least) in final mixing stages. So, SO can't wait for this. Trying not to judge from the few songs they've done live. Their debut was such a force and follow-ups always difficult, but my production hero and pal has taken control again and I have the utmost respect for his work, so here's fingers crossed and hoping. (And for those who know Cloudy Room - big chris will! - wouldn't you love to hear Nick doing this as a closer instead of T&B?! Maybe a bit left of, but oh, it'd be a blast!). And finally: is there now just TOO MUCH music out there? I've had this conversation a few times in recent months with different people and the feeling seems to be there is. We are bombarded with so many new artists, old artists, new songs, videos etc everywhere all the time, and I know I feel a bit overwhelmed. Are we really able to take in and appreciate it all? Or is music at risk of becoming as dispensable as yesterday's news?
