Just a quick plug for the new album by Scottish band The Blue Nile: High. Mellow, melodic, deliciously moody, and over far too quickly. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but I can tell it’s going to stay under my skin for a long time. You need to own this disc.

Update (5 November): After listening to it a few more times, it seems to have lost some of its initial magic. There are still about three or four stand-out tracks on it, but the overall brilliance seems to have worn off rather quickly. Huh. So much for my musical radar.

  1. Hi Martin, in response to your comment I wanted to say that since I started my kids’ blog I had in mind to post that cartoon. 🙂 I hope it’s not gonna happen though, even if I am afraid someday we won’t have a choice. LOL But I hope I will manage to keep them away from computers, at least for a little while.
