    I saw The Nest last night at the Young Vic, for which PJ wrote the score. The music was incidental and not really very memorable, but I do remember that it opened with a throbbing guitar track - something a bit menacing in the style of Hope Six - and at one point there was a piano refrain that reminded me a lot of the White Chalk era. That's all I remember really. Had I not known that PJ had written the music I wouldn't have noticed it at all (which is arguably a good thing for a play score, you don't want it to intrude or announce itself too much).

    I'm the last one awake from our crew tonight, I have a couple of nicely contradictory buzzes going on, my living room is dark except for some candles which give it a great atmosphere, and it's close but not yet midnight, so I thought I'd take advantage of the situation and choose one album to listen to front-to-back for the last time in 2016. I chose To Bring You My Love. One for the ages...

    Caved in and bought a vinyl copy of Dry. I'm too impatient to wait for reissues

    There was a reissue in the past few years, hopefully you did not get ripped off.

    nothing official according to discogs, all bootlegs. I didn't pay too too much for it either.

    oh my, then it was a pirate, my PJ knowledge is faltering. It was all over the place; I don't have it, but remember seeing it lots of times.

    "The Wind" was used during a scene and over the closing credits of the first episode of the new HBO miniseries Big Little Lies (which includes Laura Dern, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard, and Adam Scott).

    Polly attending the premiere of The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? directed by Ian Rickson. She composed an original score for the play (her fifth theatre score, if I'm correct).

    New song "The Camp" - a collaboration with Egyptian protest singer Ramy Essam.

    I think I like that more than most songs on HSDP.

    Yeah that was pretty good. Still not crazy about her higher vocal range on her recent songs.

    OMG SHE IS KILLING ME WITH ALL THESE RANDO NEW SONGS SPRINGING UP OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!!!!!

    Lately I've gotten really into Guilty. I love it! Between the amazing concert and the new songs, I am so high on her right now.

    Also I'm sure it's a coincidence but is she lyric-nodding Tori with "no angel came"?!?!

    I'm wondering if that line is a nod to Tori as well

    Possibly my favorite track from the HSDP era! This new one, however, I find to be a little patchy. I'm hopeful this is just a one-off and not an indication of where she's headed.
