New tunes from Van The Man’s thirty-third studio album can be streamed at Lost Highway’s site. We missed the performance in Austin Wednesday night — Van kept it soulful, but free of cell phones and booze, according to NME. If you dig the bluesy, Celtic shuffle of this Simple stuff, there’s even more at BBC Radio 2, along with Q&A (“Nobody knows me,” he grumbles to DJ Paul Jones; then they break out the dictionary and define entrainment). To add a bit of our own pipe dreams to the Morrison news, over SXSW weekend, we were thinking ATP/Don’t Look Back should try to stage Astral Weeks. Anyhow, happy St. Patrick’s Day.
