Just heard that BABYBIRD ‘s – Johnny Depp directed – video for ‘Unloveable’ has been banned on tv becaus it features a hanging (Mary Whitehouse 1 Good sense 0). Still, let’s be honest, this can only be a good thing for stirring up some good attention and sending inquisitive minds onto the internet to see for themselves (especially since no-one watches music tv on an actual tv anymore). So, really: Good sense 2 Mary Whitehouse 1. You be the judge.
In other news.. LAURA MARLING released album no.2, ‘I Speak Because I Can’, on Monday and it’s getting a fantastic, nay earth shattering, reaction. Here’s what The Times say / The Independent say / The Guardian say. And watch the video for ‘Rambling man’ below // Also, Nite Jewel has remixed CARIBOU‘s new single, ‘Odessa’. Dreamy Dreamy stuff. Listen here// And more from PENGUIN PRISON – free download of remixes and the majestic ‘The Worse it Gets’ here //That is all. For now.
