- Cycling Trivialites by Jose Gonzalez
This is an odd one. Not a new single of new material as I'd hoped but a vinyl version of a track off his second album 'In our Nature' which was released in 2007. It was always his first album 'Veneer' which did it for me, Jose is pretty much the finest singer songwriter of recent years with his finger picked nylon strung Spanish guitar and Arthur Russell like voice. 'In Our Nature' never quite did it for me but the quality of this track may force me to re-assess. You get two versions of 'Cycling Trivialities', both long and short and the stunning Nick Drake like 'The Nest', another track off 'In Our Nature', on the flip. Musically this would get a 5 every time, its stunning stuff, but I'm kind of wondering what the point is of this release apart from to hear these fantastic compositions on lovely vinyl...but maybe that is enough to justify its existence.

That's the point man, it didn't exist on 45 before.
