I am sorry. No elaborate blog entry this time either. It has been a very busy year, so far, so rather than no posting at all, here is a shortcut to great new music, without too much fuss. I have dug out as many needles in the haystacks as I could find, hope you enjoy them. I have also practised the annual ritual of listening to the ESC finalists, and found a tiny stack of needles there.
