Clientele confusion. According to 6 Music, Laura Veirs’ ‘The Cloud Room’ will be the first single from her _Carbon Glacier_, an album whose purchase on the recommendation of various middlebrow publications for middle-aged men doubtless confirms my membership of what the Guardian today describes as the fifty quid bloke (point of information: I’m more like a fifteen quid bloke, but there you go). There’s probably some great stuff to be blogged about the idea of cold music, or music about cold places, but this isn’t that post. I just wanted to point out that whenever I hear her description of a piano player doing ‘songs for the clientele’ I always hear the phrase with a capital letter, making it more like songs from The Clientele, a band much beloved of various FT contributors.
