Time to unravel – British Sea Power, Neruda & Bachinsky

It’s been a long week, but now it’s Saturday and the sun is warming my back as I type… time to unravel. Here’s a few things to ease you in to your weekend. Enjoy it!


British Sea PowerMan of Aran

I love an ambitious project and when I read about this, I knew instantly that I had to check it out. British Sea Power have recorded a soundtrack to a 1934 documentary about Irish fishermen, Man of Aran. The music and visuals combine stillness and grandeur, capturing the raw, unforgiving nature of the sea. This is one of the finds of 2009!


Pablo NerudaTonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines

Andy Garcia sounds like Cohen here…  one of my favourite ever love poems.


Elizabeth BachinskyHome of Sudden Service

Elizabeth Bachinsky is one of the international artists programmed at QLD Poetry Festival 2009. Here’s the title poem from her brilliant collection, Home of Sudden Service. Can’t wait to hear this live!

    Graham where do you find these? the sea power video is amazing. i would love to know how they wrote the music for that doco. and the andy and pablo video is just wonderful. If only i could write lines like ‘Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
    my soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.’
    and i am now very excited about elizabeth.

      I really want to get my hands on the new British Sea Power album/DVD. The clips on youtube have got me salivating. Glad you enjoyed the Neruda and Bachinsky as well. Elizabeth will be amazing at QPF!
