My occasional aid package from Amazon arrived today. Along with a copy of “Panda Anti virus Platinum”:http://www.pandasoftware.co.uk/ and some graphic novels (the latest “Transmetropolitan(Transmetropolitan – The Official Feedsite)”:http://www.transmetropolitan.com/ and “Hellblazer”:http://www.insanerantings.com/hell/) was the latest “Trust The DJ”:http://www.trustthedj.com/ compilation by “Giles Peterson”:http://www.trustthedj.com/GillesPeterson/ and the new “Coral(The Coral’s website)”:http://www.thecoral.co.uk/ album, Magic and Medicine. I haven’t liked the Trust The DJ stuff as much as Peterson’s excellent Worldwide compilations, but its worth picking up all the same if your a jazz-head, a hip-hop fan or a little strange. For a taster, listen to his Radio 1 “Worldwide”:http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/urban/peterson/ show, which you can listen to on the web assuming you have “RealPlayer”:http://www.real.com/ installed. The Coral album on the other hand is no-where near as diverse as their original (no sea-shanties!) but does seem more focused, if at the same time sounding a little more dreamy (think: stoned out on a beach dreamy). Very enjoyable all the same, Liezah being my favourite so far.
