Sarah Lyall's piece in the New York Times gives a little insight into the cultural differences between us and them.

my new favourite band are the decemberists. Their 2003 album "Castaways and Cutouts" really rules. I must get hold of their 2004 EP.

i'm converting citycreator to flash, as my first big project. after quite a few hours of battling against flash i seem to be making some progress. i'm conviced flash was designed to stop people from building useful applications out of it, and optimized for shitty vector based movies.

garned from The Face mailing list this morning, a selection of lego films. requires divx, but well worth the download. if i had more free time, this is what i'd be making.

i take back at least some of what i've said about the uk music charts - my favourite track from the latest belle and sebastian album is in the top twenty. nice to hear radio one playing something half decent.

on the advice of a indie kid friend, i bought a pair of kristin hersh albums (sky motel and the grotto). in a word: stunning. the grotto, especially, i touching and sad, but with some excellent euphoric moments (listen to "Silver Sun"). definately my favourite album of the moment.

went to see lowgold at lunchtime. they played a small set (four tracks) from their newish album "welcome to winners". in a small club under little portland street, it was for radio execs as far as i could make out (i built their website and their management invited us along). very good stuff. i recommend you buy their cd.
