  1. May I?
    Goldfrapp, “Seventh Tree”

  2. You may.

    Have you seen the movie Hard Candy?

  3. No. Reason?

  4. In Hard Candy, Goldfrapp plays a roll in seducing a girl into falling for an older man. I don’t want to give away the ending, but her love for Goldfrapp later comes into question.

  5. Thanks. I’m Italian, and I suggest (realease on January) Jovanotti’s cd “Safari”, with Ben Harper special guest at guitar in track “Fango”

    Other good things on February: School of Language and Atlas Sound, or not?

  6. I did a piece on Die! Die! Die! over at my blog / podcast. Have You Heard

    We were able to record a whole performance at Atlanta, GA’s The Earl. If you want, you can repost some of the tracks as long as you link back to
