two for tuesday. one for the future and one from the past. one laid back, one loud and lairy.
i am currently listening to the belle and sebastian bbc sessions album.
it's fab, but then i would say that. b&s fans will be overjoyed at the four (four!!) previously unreleased songs. those new to b&s can maybe have it as an introductory greatest hits sorta thing. the song i'm posting even namechecks john peel as they sang it for him, and is just amazing.
if you're like jack black's character in high fidelity, and you don't like this fey, lilly livered typa stuff, the other song is more for you.
titus andronicus' eponymous song comes on like the clash, bright eyes, and andrew wk having a scrap in the carpark out the back of the black bull after drinking 12 pints with shane mcgowan.
all together now - "your life is over, your life is over, your life is OVER!"
the b&s LP is out now, a more hi-fi version of the titus andronicus will be out in january.
