10 Facts from your Librarian XO

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me doing a little factoid thingy the other night. Let's face it, it's a world of hearsay, so here are ten (plus one!) actual current musical truths.

Fact #2: One of the new Paul Epworth-produced Florence & The Machine songs is called Strangeness and Charm. Evidence

Fact #3: Nada Surf has recorded a lovely and very faithful cover of Kate Bush's Love And Anger. Evidence

Fact #4: The always gorgeously orchestrated The Divine Comedy has a new record out May 31 called Bang Goes The Knighthood. Evidence

Fact #5: Joan Jett, a woman who has climbed the mountain of Rock, has a new face. Whatever, she fucking rawks. Evidence

Fact #6: The embattled BBC6 has a podcast I've downloaded for about a year - Music Week. Love it. One of the hosts used to be in Menswear. Evidence
