Digital Roundup: 12/10/14
New this week in the Rhino Room at iTunes:
Thompson Twins, “Bombers in the Sky,” “Come Inside,” “Come Inside/The Saint,” “Groove On,” “Play with Me (Jane),” “Play with Me (Jane)/The Saint,” “Sugar Daddy,” and “The Saint”: You may recall how, a few months back, we chatted with Tom Bailey about how Thompson Twins’ final two studio albums, Big Trash and Queer, had been added to our digital catalog at long last, but now we’ve got eight – count ‘em – eight new additions that’ll make fans of the Twins kick up their heels and get ready to hit the dancefloor. Whether you need them all will depend on how much of a Thompson Twins fan you consider yourself to be, since there’s obviously a bit of title duplication in the midst of the list (that’s because of how the singles were released, of course), but they’re here if you want them, so…you’re welcome!
Babble, “Beautiful/Tribe,” “Love Has No Name,” and “Take Me Away”: Aaaaaaand in other Tom Bailey news, you’ll also note that we’ve added three singles from Bailey’s post-TT project, Babble, which he and musical collaborator / former life partner Alannah Currie embarked upon when they felt as though they needed a fresh start. The music might be a bit more challenging than, say, “Hold Me Now,” but it’s still pretty great if you’re fond of Bailey and Currie.
