Tonight’s Song of the Day is Sargasso Sea by Rob St John. His new album, Weald is out on the 21st, on Song, By Toad. Closer to now, however, is the first single – Sargasso Sea – which is being released as a free download on the 7th (write it in your diaries, &c). The video is footage from a homefilm of a mid 20th Central-American carnival, found half-degraded in a 1960s suburban basement (don’t worry, it’s all CC).
I’m going to look at the album itself in detail when it comes out, since I’ve been a fan of St John’s music since I saw him perform live at Old St Paul’s church at the start of his year, and the album sounds intriguing to say the least.
