It would be great if you were never here.

Today's lunchtime concert on Radio 3 was superb in the "I've-actually-stopped-doing-what-I-should-to-listen" kind of way. The first half of Bach and Lute is pleasent and well-performed, but it's the rendition of Steve Reich's "Electric Counterpart" that really stood out. I only really know his "Different Trains" and have struggled to get into his other work, but for some reason was hooked by this.

It's at around the 38 minute mark in the episode on Sounds but you can hear a sample on the programme page. If you have a spare 15 minutes, it's worth a listen. The rendition of Maxwell Davis's "Farewell to Stromness" was a charming way to end (can never tire of it).

Run the Jewels just surprise dropped their new album RTJ4, and it's free if you want:

After his incredible verse on the the last album I'm looking forward to hearing what Zack de la Rocha has come up with this time around.

Though worth noting that anything you pay goes to the Mass Defence Program, which provides legal support to black protesters, so worth paying for it.

And it's also brilliant. Not heard an opening track with such a statement of intent for a long time.

Aye, I sent them over a tenner while I was there. I'm only just now listening to the Zak de la Rocha tune and it largely uses that new sort of stuttering off-beat rhythm (I don't know how to describe it) that every fucker is doing these days and I hate. The whole style needs to die. It does drop that at some point, and for his verse, though which is a relief.

I'm with you, that's my least favourite track on the album. I hate that style of production. Perhaps not a coincidence that Pharrel's on it too.

In this month's Q.magazine, I was reading about that Help! Charity album released in the late 1990s and how good it was. Especially the KLF's The Magnificent 7 theme remix. I recalled the film and remembered that Yul Brynner was a Liverpool fan. And he didn't like aftershave. In fact Yul never wore cologne.
