It's been a good eighteen months since we properly wrote about the discordantly twisted world, and voice, of Paul Hawkins and Thee Awkward Silences, who emerged from the mess of oddity that was the attempted gathering of a London antifolk scene a couple of years ago to make the strangely compelling We Are Not Other People album last year. Mind you, we haven't really had to bark him up given Superman Revenge Squad and David Cronenberg's Wife have done so for us this year. The song that Ben SRS mentions, the bluesy if not in a way the blues would ever assert I'll Take Good Care of You, is anow available for free from his/their new blog.
Oh, and our other outlet The Line Of Best Fit has compiled nineteen Canadian artists you'll doubtless hear a lot more about eventually. You can probably guess how many members Ultimate Power Duo don't have.
