Track of the week : John Cale & Brian Eno – Spinning Away

This week’s track of the week is by no means a new song, but it’s new to me at least. I had no idea that back in 1990 John Cale & Brian Eno had released an album together, but if I had, given their musical history, I would have expected it to be at the experimental, avant-garde end of the spectrum.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Lush, melodic, even poppy, it’s an absolutely gorgeous record. I’d recommend seeking out the entire album, but why not start with ‘Spinning Away’ which amongst its’ myriad charms has strings to die for.
