Todd Terje with Bryan Ferry, "Johnny And Mary"

I am old and I remember when the original version of this song was new and just the other week a random series of searches resulted in my traveling down a Robert Palmer rabbit hole, all of which is to say that I was perhaps more primed to find this unexpectedly moving than you might be, but you should probably still give it a chance anyway, because you might just think it is full of the same feel I got from it, which is, "wow, that's really something."


Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno: New Albums

It's Bryan Ferry vs. Brian Eno in the battle of Roxy Music founders with new solo records out. I've listened to the new Ferry a couple of times, and it's… fine. It's exactly what you'd expect from a Bryan Ferry solo record. (I do love the way "You Can Dance" cribs its opening from Roxy's "True to Life.") Haven't heard the Eno yet but, really, could it possibly be bad?
