This week I have mostly been listening to/watching...
My esteemed colleague Tom Parsons has published the Spotify playlist to accompany our April 2011 issue and, as you might expect, it's a corker.
Go to http://tiny.cc/april11playlist and fill your boots.

Never really check new releases page on Spotify as generally pop rubbish, some reason had a look earlier to find Led Zeppelin IV famous cover staring at me. Can't believe they've been signed up. It's not the full catalogue (yet), first 4 albums only. I was astonished, they never even released any singles did they?
I'm a pretty big electronic music fan and I would love to have a chat room on my music website so I can discover new bands that are less well known. Can anyone recommend a good chat room that is similar to Rumbletalk or C-box?
I've only found one other post about this (by V1c in 2009!) but I've been tempted to buy a blu-ray from those great folks 2L which dropped into my email this morning...
The disc is called "Remote Galaxy", recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra with Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting.
As well as Stereo 192/24, it also has 5.1 (192/24), 7.1 (96/24) and something called 9.1 Auro-3D (96/24).
As I've got a 9.1 system (through a Pioneer LX85, via a Cambridge 751 BD player) will I be able to benefit from the ....
Bought this, listened once, thought *meh*, returned to it after a year and now it's currently my favourite album. Now that Interpol is RIP, Arcade Fire are my favourite band. Have their first album, now gonna get Neon Bible, then Reflektor.
Has anyone yet purchased the nirvana Blu ray Pure Audio disc .
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has experienced this new music Blu ray format ,is it good , bad or brilliant.
Please give your opions as I was very interested in purchasing one but the price is a bit steep so it would have to be really good to justify the outlay.
This week bought Sound City on blu ray and cd , awesome ,some great insight into the now demised Sound City studio where Nirvana cut the nevermind album.
A real honest look at some of the bands that also recorded there , and Dave Grohl who bought the Rupert Neve sound board from the Sound CIty studio and recorded the cd with it at studio 606 ( Dave Grohls home ) .
With contributions from artists such as Josh Homme , Stevie Nicks , Trent Reznor .Alain Johannes , Lee Ving . Corey Taylor and others.
Has anyone got Glenn Gould's version of this.......is it worth getting and is it well recorded?
There are two versions.
There is this 2012 one, which seems very good value:
or these from the 90s:
Big Chris. I'm sure I've seen you post about OPETH in the past.
Im listening to a few random songs of theirs on Spotify.
What do you think is a good album to start with. There's loads of stuff on there.
