My annual review of what I’ve most enjoyed listening to during the last 12 months, and my albums of the year.
If you’ve got SKY or FREESAT then you can tune into BBC Alba on Wednesday night to see Calamateur playing a recorded live set. The channels are:
- SKY 168
- FREESAT 110
The show is called RAPAL and will be on at 10:30pm. It’ll then be repeated this Friday 17th October at 11pm.
In the meantime, you can catch a short preview at:
Calamateur is the first artist featured … and the last … in that short clip.
Calamateur has a new album out/on the way called Jesus is for Losers.
There are two tracks available now, with more to follow over the next few weeks.
The album is a collection of new Calamateur songs, some re-worked old ones and several cover versions, including the title track (available now) which is a cover of an incredible song by Steve Taylor. You can read more about the making of the album on [Calamateur’s] blog.
Also included in the download is a gorgeous 9-page digital booklet with artwork, credits and essay.
Give it a listen. Give it a read.
