More slim pickins for Drake this week as he runs down the latest live effort from the prolific Robyn Hitchcock. -ed.
Drake’s Take: New Releases 11.10.09
Another week closer to the holidays, and even more gift-oriented releases — this week featuring live (Robyn Hitchcock) and greatest hits (Snow Patrol) collections. There were a few new releases as well, from The Cribs (featuring Johnny Marr), Asobi Seksu, Wale, Grant-Lee Phillips, Caroline Herring, Ray Davies, Pants Yell! and Echo & the Bunnymen.
Playlist: New Releases 11.10.09
Robyn Hitchock lovingly recreates the beloved album I Often Dream of Trains live for a lucky New York crowd. Joined by multi-instrumentalists Timo Keegan and Terry Edwards, Hitchcock gives the eccentric material a more mature edge, reinterpreting the material for mid-afternoon tea (with a dash of Monty Python zaniness, just so you remember who it is we’re listening to here). There’s a DVD as well, the content of which debuted on Sundance back in June, you can check out some video clips from the concert film after the jump.
