Back from  a fortnight’s holiday and a lot of new stuff to get through, as you might imagine. Still nothing surfaced on public platforms from the Hiss Golden Messenger album, but let’s make do with: a levitational live performance from Natural Information Society; YoshimiO from the Boredoms/OOIOO and friends reconfiguring Indian raga (as SAICOBAB)/More raga, with a terrific take on Terry Riley’s “In C”/James Holden and his new band manoeuvring alongside Floating Points and Caribou/A sweet new track from Lindstrøm/Mick Head!/Beck/and another killer single from Four Tet. Going to spend the rest of the day prevaricating over whether to play the Taylor Swift single. Pray for me.
