♫ Joy Division – Twenty Four Hours ♫

I’m addicted to Joy Division. Again. Melody, lyrics, rhythm… everything makes sense. Ian Curtis was a great poet. A new movie has been released about the band, the documentary Joy Division. Grant Gee’s movie is a complement to Anton Corbijn’s Control. The documentary contains interviews and concert footage. It’s not just a portrayal of the band but of the music scene it erupted from. Highly recommend it.

Swedish Sounds

If you are anything like me, you will love The Mary Onettes. These swedes make tunes in the likes of The Cure, The Smiths, Joy Division e with an 80’s feeling. After hearing one of their songs on Grey’s Anatomy and got the whole album and haven’t stopped listening to it. Last week I ordered the CD and the EP from their label: Labrador. I highly recommend it.
