Patrick Wolf – Vulture
Only just got around to hearing this. Much has been made of the saucy vid – and yes, it is vaguely shocking, you can see his bum and everything. Not sure the song is quite as radical a departure as some have said though – OK it does ramble off in a bit of an Alec Empire direction at various intervals, but once it’s settled into its melody it basically sounds like a more interesting take on some of his Magic Position-era material. Pretty good, actually, even in spite of itself.
