From Korea

In spite of the dearth of new material available in Korea....

Fresh off the Press (Relatively):

Franz Ferdinand - 'Darts of Pleasure'. Glaswegians with a 'New Wave' chip on their shoulder.

British Sea Power - 'Lovely Day Tomorrow'. In the tradition of their Post-Punk forbearers, oblique lyrics and guitars that don't sound quite like guitars.

Luna - "The Alibi". More offhand beauty; slick midnight music.

And from the Vaults:

Magazine - "Sweetheart Contract". Nervous and brilliant.

David Bowie - "Ashes to Ashes". Still remember the weird video - 1979!!
