Quote of the day

"It can be as important to know when not to fill a void, something it took us a long time to realise."

Haiku Salut's Sophie Barkerwood writing on their blog about new single 'Traction', the fourth to be taken from their soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film The General.

The less-is-more philosophy also shines through in her comments about the value of self-imposed constraints with respect to creativity: "Sometimes it can be overwhelming to have everything at your disposal. You can become paralysed by endless possibilities. Having boundaries and working within their limitations pushed us to create in different ways and make points by different means."

They were a revelation at Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest last month, personally speaking, and sentiments like these only endear them to me more, given my love for the likes of Low and Codeine and the title of this 'ere site.
