I love it when an artist brings in an orchestra to help them re-imagine some of their greatest song, and Peter Gabriel has done just that with his latest record New Blood. The LP brings brings together twelve of his signature tracks, together with a stunning five-minute of ambient sound as an introduction to bonus track “Solsbury Hill”.
So onto March, the months are ticking away fast! After last month’s minor hiatus, in the form of the Johnny Cash Special, this month there is new music aplenty. I have had a lot more time to sit and listen to music and more of a chance to get out into the music stores, both chain and independent, on the hunt for a great sound and a great record. Here are this month’s offerings. Enjoy!
