In response to Nielu by Olli Aarni, released October last year on Florabelle.
“And why do you think that is?”
“Mull it over for a while. Until next week.”
But where to start?
On this park bench, late afternoon, early spring.
I guess. It’s as good a place as any.
Weak sunshine through the branches.
Shoppers hurry by as they head home, bulging bags and coffee to go.
It’s just a nagging thought really.
More a vague notion. If anything.
Round and round, round and round.
Dog-walkers, joggers, lovers. Oh great.
Round and round.
Sun’s gone now. Gathering gloom.
It’s getting late.
There’s been no-one for a while.
It’s getting cold.
There’s no-one now.
And that’s it.
For a proper review of this excellent album, please read James Catchpole’s words at Fluid Radio here.
I would definitely recommend a vinyl copy of the album. There are very few remaining on Florabelle’s Bandcamp page. I got mine from Stashed Goods but they have long since sold out.
