...and then there's this. Just when you thought you could never hear anything more from the Cocteau Twins...

Hey by the way when I first heard this I was living here:


My room was on the ground floor (the bay and french windows you can see at the bottom left of the building). Just outside was the lamppost where Mr. Tumnus is first seen by Lucy (for real, C.S. Lewis used to live a few hundred yards away).

When I heard this mix, it was as if I'd heard the song (“Heaven or Las Vegas”) for the first time one sparkling frosty snowy morning in early December 1989. Precisely because the mix was different. It's how metaphor (translation, OOO fans) can put you in touch with the molten core of an object.
