Song of the Week for July 13, 2018

Canadians claim Song of the Week. Nap Eyes return with an ambitious, allusive third album that achieves a new sonic clarity, depth, and range to match the effortless melodies and extraordinary writing. It’s the band’s most transparent and personal set of songs to date, in which singer Nigel Chapman interrogates social, psychological, and spiritual milieus for clues about the elusive nature of knowledge. Should greatly interest fans of The Velvet Underground.

Music Trivia

40 years ago this month (June 2, 1978) Peter Gabriel’s second solo album was released. A hugely important record in sparking my passion for music. 
Here a few pieces of memorabilia from way back when. The first is a 30″ x 30″ retail promo poster for the album. The second is a full page add placed by Atlantic Records in Billboard magazine on the week the record came out. The third is a copy of a handwritten letter written by Peter to radio stations. Peter introduces himself, briefly explains the merits of the LP and politely asks for his record to be played on the radio. Classic stuff !
