A few more albums to shortlist as I head off to vacate. I’m not doing the whole SXSW thing this year, unless you mean the acronym’s alternate long-form: Strangled By Sea World.
–Patience (After Sebald) OST by The Caretaker. (Thanks to John Harrison of Cedar Lines for the tip. Watch for our Cedar Lines profile in early April.)
–Perceiving Perspective, by Pleq and Lauki. Two Maxwell advocates record a quite acoustic-sounding EP.
–Forthcoming releases by Black Swan, Vieo Abiungo and Cock and Swan should score very high marks here some time around year-end.
–And don’t forget The Eye Of Time s/t debut, which — as we approach the quarter mark — is album of the year.
