Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas Still Relevant

On an release-wise unusually boring January, the return of Leonard Cohen has unexpectedly become the most exciting thing the record industry got on offer, unless you really dig Lana Del Rey’s album. The veteran writer, who recently came to London for a record presentation where Jarvis Cocker led a funny interview, has crafted his stronger collection since ‘I’m Your Man’ and ‘Come Healing’, one of Old Ideas’ standout tracks, tops the current edition of the loop.

Among the entries of the week we can find the latest offerings by Ladyhawke, Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen ; The Men and Greg Dulli whom, fresh from announcing a comeback tour with The Afghan Whigs, is one of the chosen artists to cover a selection of (again) Leonard Cohen’s classics in the video series ‘Old Ideas By New Friends’ alongside Cults, Bradford Cox; New Pornographer A.C. Newman; etc.

The Loop Special: A Look At 2012

Before we kickstart our end of the year review, let’s have a last minute edition of our loop, anticipating the most interesting new releases announced for the first months of the New Year and featuring previews of long awaited debuts from artists who generated a strong buzz during 2011, headed by Lana Del Rey, whose first album to be released in January, feels a bit rushed out trying to cash on the enormous success of ‘Video Games’. Frank Ocean; Azealia Banks; A$ap Rocky and Friends are also being tipped for big things in many sound of 2012 forecasts.

Among the big returns, Leonard Cohen will launch his twelfth studio album, ‘Old Ideas’, Lambchop, Leila & Raekwon also got new material ready and Sharon Van Etten; Gonjasufi; Cities Aviv; Perfume Genius and Field Music are generously giving away new tracks previewing their respective new efforts. Mark Lanegan Band; Shearwater or School Of Seven Bells arrived too late to be included, but they will certainly be making waves too.
