James Yorkston Takes a New Road on 'The Route to the Harmonium'

Like the movies of Wes Anderson, James Yorkston's albums exist in a well-established, insular, immediately-recognizable world that is subject more to subtle variation than drastic reinvention. Just as one would not expect Anderson to all-of-a-sudden pull a coarse, grimy sci-fi epic out of his sleeve, it would be silly to expect Yorkston to move from his airy, quiet Scottish folk to, say, dubstep techno. Therefore, when an album like The Route to the Harmonium comes along, Yorkston's seventh ...

An Address in Bloomsbury ~ Alec Forshaw

On that recent trip to London, and wandering through Bloomsbury to lunch and revisit The Lost Words exhibition, I walked along Great Ormond Street with Adele Geras and Helen Rappaport and took them into the children's hospital to see the chapel.  I'm afraid it's exquisite beauty and peace passed me by as a young student nurse taking children to services on a Sunday afternoon.   It seemed over-the-top and garish to me in the 1970s, but I go in every time I am passing now and it never cease...

Miller: Giancarlo Stanton a Dodger? Unlikely and unnecessary

Let’s begin by paying tribute to Giancarlo Stanton by doing what he typically does, by hitting a juicy, belt-high fastball 400-plus feet. Every team in baseball would want this guy, including the Marlins – if they could pay him in live chickens or a similar alternate form of currency. Any bare-bones decision to add Stanton requires the brain power of a rosin bag, a hitter of his prowess welcomed even on the ’27 Yankees, whose regular right fielder was none other than Babe Ruth. Who couldn’t use ...

Journeys

As I get older, as I watch more and more cricket - well, more and more cricket and more and more rugby union, for these are the sports which dominate my consciousness during many of my waking hours - I become increasingly aware of, and fascinated by, the nature of the journey (this is the type of expression which people employ to describe their progress through reality television programmes, but for once it feels like the right expression to use).Not just my journey, although if you stop to cons...
