this and the Hannah Peel album are real contenders for my never-to-be-compiled best of 2017 list

The Silver Globe has gone off the streaming services because of you

New record out next week titled Loops in the Secret Society. I guess it reworks some of her material from The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology?

Apparently Jane Weaver has a new project called Fenella that just came out today. Haven’t listened yet

It's really great, a wonderful stew of various krautrock threads and her own spin on it all. Plus her gorgeous vocals on half of it. It's on her Bandcamp site.

Yep, got the vinyl through the post the other day. It's one of those 'reimagined score to an old film' things. Probably my favourite thing of hers since 1992(!) Fenella are doing a very limited number of gigs too performing parts of the record; saw them in Edinburgh a few weeks back.

I agree it's wonderful. Listening right now and I am pleased there are quite a bit of Jane's vocals. I was expecting a mostly instrumental album. The atmosphere is wonderful.
Did Julian House do the sleeve? It's got that look.

“Shard of Glass” sounds like a Colleen track.

Produced on a complicated diet of bygone Lebanese torch songs, 1980's Russian Aerobics records and Australian Punk.

On the one hand that sounds great, on the other, I'm going to wait on another song at least.

My initial reaction is that the "funky" verses reminded me of late 90s Phish. I'm not totally convinced but I'm still re-listening to it and hope for another song soon to help clarify the direction.

New single - Heartlow. More of a Lush vibe. Not psychedelic in the vein of Silver Globe or Modern Kosmology, but a little more in tune with her previous work than Revolution of Super Visions was. That song has grown on me a bit since October too.

I didn't like this at first, but now I do.

Every review I've read has really annoyed me. I should just not read those.
I had the same response. Was sort of put off by it for no good reason at first. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it. But I listened to it a couple of times today and it's growing on me.
Still not sure if it will really stick, but I can't figure out what it was I didn't like the first time.
