As is my want when I am on holiday I picked up the latest Mojo magazine with the accompanying CD Oh! You Pretty Things billed as 15 tracks which explore the chamber pop legacy of Hunky Dory as it looked quite interesting.
However, after I couple of listens I must say that I am pretty underwhelmed which is disappointing as the artists listed by and large looked promising.
Never fear though, you can always rely on Aimee Mann to come up with the goods. Good For Me is taken from her 2017 album Mental Illness her 9th album and as things stand her last.Winner of the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album 2018.
I can't say that I am at all familiar with Destroyer a band from Vancouver fronted by Dan Bejar. Crimson Tide a song from their 2020 album Have We Met has sufficiently intruiged me to try and find out more about them.
I've never really been a fan of John Grant and have nothing by him apart from the occassional download here and there but I must confess that I rather enjoyed The Cruise Room a song from his recently released album Boy From Michegan
Maybe some of the others will grow on me.
