Another Musical Interlude
Last week I posted a little piece about the British duo grasscut, which is releasing a CD that opens with a song that quotes W.G. Sebald. This week yet another British CD was announced that bears a relationship to Sebald. According to TheLineofBestFit.com, Sleeping States’ CD In the Gardens of the North is “a literary inspired album.” The opening track Rings of Saturn is described as a eulogy for WG Sebald, while second track The Next Village is inspired by Kafka. Sleeping States is the stage name for singer-songwriter Markland Starkie. The CD comes out August 17. The Guardian‘s take on the project can be found here.
