Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man (1988) Wikipedia informations: I'm Your Man is a 1988 album by Leonard Cohen. It was widely considered Cohen's "comeback" album, after the poorly promoted Various Positions in 1984. The album also marked Cohen's further move into modern musical textures, with many songs having a synthpop production. The song "Everybody Knows" was one of Cohen's first writing collaborations with Sharon Robinson, who would become a frequent collaborator in the future. Read more on Last.fm.

Stornoway's second album, Tales From Terra Firma, is an album of stories birth, death, marriage, coming of age: The Big Stuff. The songs were mostly written in a camper van in land-locked Oxford but on listening, the yearning for adventure and the freedom of the coast and wild places is palpable. As is true of classic songwriting partnerships, lyricist Brian Briggs eloquence coupled with his crystalline voice unite with Jon Ouin s stunning arrangements and alchemise to form a musical mirror. Tales From Terra Firma reflects powerful life experiences, the great outdoors and the passing of time, which is a major theme of the album. And with that, Stornoway have self-produced a record that marks a new sophistication in compositional and, in particular, lyrical qualities, while still retaining the charm of their debut that so many fell in love with.
And so to the songs themselves. Brian suggests: "The title of the album conjures up for me, the romantic notion of an adventurer, exploring new lands and reporting on his experiences. Discovering what it is to be human and an enthusiasm for adventure, which I feel is true of me". This notion was seized upon by drummer Rob Steadman who worked in conjunction with artist Kirini Kopcke to bring an action-adventure sensibility to the album's artwork. Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exup ry, Herg and Ukiyo-e and using the ligne claire style, the aim was, as in the songs, to contrast the drama and adventure of the high seas with something very rooted in the real world.
Bass player and other band multi-instrumentalist Oli Steadman transformed into the band s super geeky esoteric experimentalist as well as tutor to Brian in the finer points of learning Logic. Oli and Rob s parents garage in Oxford became band HQ: Stornostudios. It was here that they together brought Tales From Terra Firma into being. Whilst the band strengthened their grip on experimenting, arranging, song writing and the accompanying artwork; the majority of the tracks are simple, melodic pop songs that are warm and inviting and quintessentially Stornoway.
Josie Field's brand new album Leyland is a major leap forward in style and sound, showing a more mature side to a young artist who has come into her own over the past 2 years.
Leyland shows a musical shift in direction. Marginally influenced by country music and harvesting a somewhat grittier, darker core to the recording and writing process, Leyland is a bold, but clearly natural step forward artistically for Josie and her band. "Hey Man" is the contagious, hook-driven and meaningful first single and is followed by hit after hit.
Leyland is an album that has clearly blossomed from the experiences of a growing artist. Itís a bizarre, symbiotic mix of folk, country, rap and pop.
