Recommended music – Cornelius

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

And now for something a bit different. Whilst in New York, I took full advantage of the Tower Records closing down sale. It’s kinda sad when record stores close down — but at the same time, good. I was able to pick up quite a lot of interesting music.

One of my favourite CDs to have found was FM (Fantastia Remastered) by Cornelius. This features 8 remixes of artists including U.N.K.L.E and Damon Albarn. It’s a really chilled out CD to listen to, and takes you through a vista of different styles and genres. Very good listening material for the long journey from Manchester to Somerset on Thursday.

Really enjoyed playing in the Living Room, East Village, last night. It’s a great, intimate venue, with good sound. We’ll have some pictures up very soon!

New York is fanastic so far.. .and we’re looking forward to hitting some of the  New York open mics in the next few days too.
