oh i missed this thread. yes jane should be massive. all the singles she did with manchester records are grand. i assume you already have "scream and shout" and "cupboard love"?

also "the heart that buckled you" from Aspen Leaf is f-i-n-e fine.

Not forgetting the wonderful Kill Laura

(I didn't think much of the Misty Dixon LP from last year though)

I dug "It's not over" from the TN singles club thingy.

Hey doomie - I got the Richard and Thomas Frost! It was good cos I found it for £4, which seemed reasonable. So you're off the (long-forgotten) hook! No sign of the "Life Is a Stream" reissue i sthere?

no clue tim! and phwe -- glad to be off the hook!

on a related note -- found music for motorcycles today for 49p. on tape. in ridiculous packaging.

Is this all the drury lane charity shop?

mark grout (mark grout), Thursday, 20 May 2004 14:40 (twelve years ago) Permalink

ooo -- can't say -- as for some bizarre reason they are getting in brand new warp releases and selling them for 99p each. but its the same shop where i got the jane weaver single. and cold mountain soundtrack for 99p.

ooh don't let keith hear you say that! fwiw i totally adore most of it but it would have been nice to have more previously unreleased stuff..

Yeah, ditto surface. I thought it great, and hung together really well for all that there was only one? two? misty dixon tracks not on it...

I am currently rocking out to the Jane Weaver Septieme Souer album "The Fallen By Watch Bird". It is like spooky neo-folk.

but yeah, why is she not massive?

Funny, I was listening to her track "it's not over yet" this morning.

Yeah, s-be massiv.

Mark G, Wednesday, 5 January 2011 11:17 (six years ago) Permalink

If I like Fallen By Watch Bird will I like the older records too?

The New Dirty Vicar, Thursday, 6 January 2011 16:57 (six years ago) Permalink

the other albums, yes almost certainly. her earlier solo singles (cupboard love, scream and shout) were a bit more indiepoppy and less folk, but i love those too

esteban and the witch (electricsound), Thursday, 6 January 2011 22:14 (six years ago) Permalink

Dig the Misty Dixon stuff as well.

Mark G, Friday, 7 January 2011 09:29 (six years ago) Permalink

Love this album. She's got something new out soon apparently. I'll post something here when I find out.

one year passes...

i just found jane weaver/fallen by watch bird and i have no idea how i lived so long without her!
her voice is so serious. i love it! even the spoken word stuff.

has she done anything since then? i don't really want indie pop.

Oh that Watch Bird album is fantastic! Totally cosign on that. Need to get it out again.

But, erm, apart from that I can't tell you anything. I just wanted to tell you that, yet again, I agree!

Watchbird is fantastic.

if you want more of that kind of stuff, then the susan christie album, paint a lady, that finders released a while back is just as good.

mark e, Tuesday, 21 August 2012 22:23 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah that susan christie album is good stuff

pop, singular (electricsound), Tuesday, 21 August 2012 22:35 (four years ago) Permalink

It's my fav Finders Keepers album, I have to say.

Mark G, Tuesday, 21 August 2012 22:47 (four years ago) Permalink

susan christie or jane weaver?
why is jane weaver not more well known? i feel silly for not having heard her until now.

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Tuesday, 21 August 2012 22:55 (four years ago) Permalink

Susan Christie, Jane W is not on "Finders Keepers"..

Mark G, Wednesday, 22 August 2012 14:06 (four years ago) Permalink

maybe just in the usa? she's on that b-music imprint, at least from what i can see.
she also did this bearded ladies comp http://www.finderskeepersrecords.com/discog_04eggs.html

Effervescent songbird Jane Weaver has joined forces with Finders Keepers to produce a B-Music certified canon of femme-folk, laden with finger picked meandering melodies, ethereal harmonies and wistful psychedelic leanings.

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Wednesday, 22 August 2012 14:20 (four years ago) Permalink

i considered buying that once, but didn't because it was kinda $$
that was a mistake!

who is jim?

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Wednesday, 22 August 2012 14:21 (four years ago) Permalink

Electric sound of jim, see post 2.

Mark G, Wednesday, 22 August 2012 14:58 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I was meaning the specific FK imprint, which is purely re-issues / repackages / various artists of old.

New stuff is b-music, bird records, Twisted Nerve, and so on..

New album 'The Silver Globe' sounds mighty fine to my ears.

Never heard of her before

Tuneful as fook 'folk music' with electronic layering. Just saying, like.

Jessie Fer Ark (Mobbed Up Ping Pong Psychos), Friday, 31 October 2014 18:12 (two years ago) Permalink

she has a quite rewarding back catalogue

mit iodine (electricsound), Friday, 31 October 2014 23:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Yep, had it on full blast for a car journey, tis great.

Someone was saying "Hawkwind influence" I don't see it but.

Mark G, Saturday, 1 November 2014 09:33 (two years ago) Permalink

really looking forward to getting this .. the reviews make this sound like audio catnip to me ..

mark e, Saturday, 1 November 2014 11:00 (two years ago) Permalink

happened to be listening to this just now - it's really good!

This is like my third or fourth favourite LP of the year. Love it.

Doran, Sunday, 2 November 2014 23:35 (two years ago) Permalink

Count me in as a new convert, especially if Jim and Doran are repping for her. It's right up my alley with my recent love of all things krauty. The initial Stereolab vibe gives way to something deeper, will dig into more from her.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Thursday, 6 November 2014 03:57 (two years ago) Permalink

probably the closest thing to this in her back cat is the misty dixon lp which i highly recommend and is dead easy to find cheap (or at least was)

mit iodine (electricsound), Thursday, 6 November 2014 04:05 (two years ago) Permalink

Silver Globe is definitely one of my favorites this year.

got it.

audio catnip of the highest order.

ok ...
this album is brilliant.
absolutely brilliant.

Still looking for that "Electric Mountain" cassette ep, the d/l tracks would do..

She's great. The Silver Globe is definitely one of my favorite records of 2014.

this gets better with each spin.

so much so, that i have ordered the edition with the extra disc.
cannot wait to hear the additional material.

such a brilliant album.

Listening to "The Amber Light" bonus disc, a great addition to the amazing "Silver Globe".

She recently did a nifty collaboration with Beyond The Wizxards Sleeve:

I did get that"Electric Mountain" cassette ep from the merch.

Does anyone have those d/l mp3 tracks from it?

Mark G, Thursday, 27 October 2016 18:29 (five months ago) Permalink

New album, "Modern Kosmology", out on 5/19, has already leaked. And another tasty helping of krautrock/Stereolab fun it is!

jane weaver is fuckin amazing

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Monday, 17 April 2017 23:44 (one week ago) Permalink

Wow, really love the single..first time hearing Weaver, really been missing out

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Tuesday, 18 April 2017 00:43 (six days ago) Permalink

First impression is this is very good, but The Silver Globe is more interesting and ambitious

afriendlypioneer, Wednesday, 19 April 2017 18:15 (five days ago) Permalink

That's a fair assessment but I love the musical path she's ploughing. So what if it's similar to classic Stereolab, they're gone and I could go for more of that flavor.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Wednesday, 19 April 2017 18:30 (five days ago) Permalink

so much so, that i have ordered the edition with the extra disc.
cannot wait to hear the additional material.

to follow up on my on post.
i listen to the additional disc more often than the original album.
it's fantastic.
