In four hours I’ll be heading to the airport to leave for Europe. I’ll be back in a month’s time. I’ll probably still have access to internet so will post some updates/photos from my travels.
Love to all, have wonderful Christmases/holiday celebrations, see you in the new year.
So this will be my last night in Adelaide for the rest of the year. Tomorrow, it’s Europe time.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion - I Built Myself A Metal Bird.
So Colin Stetson is doing a bunch of solo sideshows next month around Australia (I say sideshow as I’m pretty sure he’s coming down with Arcade Fire), but even though they’ll be in Adelaide there’s not a show to be seen. Man I’d pay him to play in my back garden, I just want to meet the amazing man.
Oh and if it wasn’t so soon after my holiday I would go over to Sydney to see him, so the timing is unfortunate for me. But I guess that’s my own fault for travelling.
Saltland is the brainchild of Montréal-based cellist Rebecca Foon, who is also in Esmerine, Set Fire to Flames and Thee Silver Mt. Zion. This is the clip for a song called "Unholy", and its mesmeric swirl is the perfect match for the track’s beautifully-disguised complexities. I Thought It Was Us But It Was All of Us is the title of her debut album, available now from the peerless Constellation Records.
Do Make Say Think ~ Soul And Onward
My musical world would be a lot less fulfilling without this band in it.
