„That was quite a strange Highlands drive you took Michael. I’ve never heard Bo Hansson’s Lord of the Rings and indeed know nothing about it. But what a nice group of albums. I’ve never owned a car in my life, and the only regret I’ve had is that I therefore haven’t been able to drive off into the mountains and listen to music. There’s something about the confinement and concentration of a car interior that makes it an especially good place for listening. I think it’s also that the music really occupies the space of the car three-dimensionally, so you’re really inside the experience ( – it’s not happening on a sort of stereo ’screen‘ in front of you). / I also love David’s last album. In the light of his death it becomes quite heroic that he got it done. He wrote to me a few days before he died … we had been talking in the last couple of years about revisiting the album OUTSIDE which was a sort of unfinished project. Or perhaps I should say a ‚half-finished‘ project. It’s clear to me that he knew he was about to die – and that he decided to be as active and creative with it as he would with any other piece of art. Very inspiring. / Have you heard Julia Holter’s new release on Domino Records? It’s very impressive.“
