A bit caught up today, not least with having to write the Wild Mercury Sound column for the next issue of Uncut. But in the meantime, here's something pretty great we found yesterday: Leonard Cohen working through a new song, "The Darkness", at an outdoor soundcheck in Venice.

Reminds me, after a couple of listens, of a more sinister “Tower Of Song”. As with the UK shows last year, the band sound superb. The bells of St Mark’s are a nice touch, too…
