Paul Buchanan Extra

I'm beginning to feel a bit like PB's press agent with all of these pre-release posts.
Here below is a reminder of some recent press activity.
This might seem a bit nerdy but maybe we could all venture an album review to be initially posted here, and then posted on amazon by the author; I know from personal experience how important those endorsements are. I'll start the ball rolling once I've lived with the album a day or two and then you can play if you want to... it'll take a lot to get Peter Broderick off my system...

With 'Mid Air' realeased on Monday there are a couple of radio interviews to look out for this weekend:

Firstly there will be an interview on the Tom Robinson show on BBC 6 Music at 21:00 tonight (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01hz2f0)

He will then be appearing on Bob Harris's Radio 2 show on in the early hours of Sunday morning. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006wqtf

Here's a new review on the BBC's website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/62d3

Uncut 9/10 - "Scotland's greatest living singer"

Sunday Express 4/5 - "14 short pieces are melodic, beautifully crafted and definitely not for the broken hearted"

Time Out 4/5 (Album of the Week)
- "exquisitely hushed and extraordinarily intimate listen"

Mojo 4/5 - "A 2am album of sheer devastating beauty"

The Sunday Times and Guardian ran 2 interviews with Paul last weekend that are also available to read on PB's website:

The Sunday Times

The Guardian

There is also a great interview with The Works on RTE in Ireland. http://www.rte.ie/player/#v=1148959 (Here is a YouTube link for those who can't view the RTE link -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roAW6HS90xI)

  1. Been enjoying it today (someone has to get it 1st) most tracks only a couple of minutes long the exception being the last it feels like a collection of vignettes. Solemnity is his signature and I love him for it. The stripped down production suits him very well though towards the end of the last track "After Dark" teases is with more than just a piano and what might have been.

  2. Seems that your comment about the last track should have come with a 'spoiler' alert Rhino... thick skinned to the end...

  3. I did not mean it to sound as a spoiler as I love the album but merely to point out that had he not chosen the minimalist direction it would not have diminished the experience.
    Do you have it yet?
