I have a very large soft-spot for synthy dance pop, and Touché definitely massage that soft spot and make a nice little divot in there suitable for holding small items like candy or tchotchkes. Hm. That came out weird. But my point is, Touché’s new album It’s Fate… is great. The leading track and single “I’m A Man Not A Machine” grabbed me, but the album just kept doing that. Continue reading
It’s a lovely day in the park. Your herd is having a wonderful time, grazing, playing ball, hugging and playing circle-run!

As such, shortly after he started getting swamped, the agent set a new policy where one day a week, on Tuesdays, he would devote half of his day, from 9am to lunch (which he preferred to take at 12.30, but could go as late as 1.15 if he wasn’t particularly hungry that day) to screening new acts.
