Piano Magic, who might well be the best band in the country, have a new album out (Hooray!) and a remix 12″ (sigh). I started but never finished a full-length review of their last album, Low Birth Weight. In summary, though: it’s beautiful, fragile and very original, and was one of last year’s finest releases.

(Indulgent aside: I find writing album reviews really difficult, whereas sites like Kickbright and Westernhomes seem able to really crank them out. How do they do it?)
