The wind is whistlinnnnnnng
King Of The Mountain hit Radio 2 today
and should hit iTunes next week...
I think it's safe to call it a grower. I don't want to ruin anyone's first impressions, but I will say it has grown on me after some initial disappointment. Be prepared for something subtle and downtempo. I particularly like the weird backing vocals that sound alternately like the wind, somebody singing over your shoulder or a bunch of old school Kate Wiccan types!
To find it, go to this linked radio show from Ken Bruce at BBC2: Fast forward 15 mins twice and 5 mins once. It comes in just after Roxy Music's "Virginia Plain". This link may not hold for very long, so do it fast!
UPDATE: Go to Kofi's Hat
