A beautiful bit of work today, with this video to “Unwound”, by Music For Your Heart. Very taken with this; imagine a subtle and warm torch song built on the spare dynamics of something from Slint’s “Spiderland”, and you’re close to the appeal of this opening track from Sandra Zettpunkt’s forthcoming album. An unfamiliar name, perhaps, though “Turning Marvel” was recorded by Teenage Fanclub’s Raymond McGinley and mastered by Shellac’s Bob Weston, and features double bass from Calexico’s Volker Zander.

Auspicious company, I guess. In the spirit of full disclosure, I should mention that Sandra (who currently lives in Berne) is an old friend, but this is genuinely lovely. Have a look and let me know what you think. There are more songs at her Myspace.
