may skinny

the may edition of the skinny is oot and aboot scotland as we speak, and you'd be wise to pick up a copy i tell ye. why? i'll bloody tell you why...

first off, it has the national on the front (see exhibit a).

exhibit a

inside there are interviews with mike patton, steve mason, band of horses and faust amongst others, as well as a heap of reviews. some of which were typed out on this very keyboard by yours truly so, naturally, they deserve special mention here:

- film review of Departures
- ep review of 'Night Bats' by Loch Lomond
- live review of The Twilight Sad at ABC
- album review of 'Dead Orchestras' by Swimmer One

aaaaand my first 'album of the month' review, of the utterly splendid new album by The National, 'High Violet'. it's out on the 10th may and if you don't buy it you're a weirdo.

and if picking up a paper copy of the mag aint feasible, i'll post the actual reviews up in the next few days.
