Bjork loves James Blake, Bjorkestra playing the Bell House
The New Yorker’s Alex Ross asked Bjork what her favorite albums are. Her choices include Nico’s 1970 album “Desertshore”, Aphex Twin’s 2005 album “Drukqs”, Kate Bush’s 1982 album “The Dreaming”, and James Blake’s 2011 album “James Blake”. On her own website, Bjork also says she’s been listening to Beyonce (and James Blake) lately. Bjork saw James Blake live, at least once, at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
We’re still waiting for Bjork to announce those US Biophilia shows. Meanwhile Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra can be heard at the Bell House in Brooklyn tonight (11/16). “The Travis Sullivan Quartet will be kicking the evening off with a short set of Sullivan originals, followed by an evening of Sullivan arrangements with the 12 piece band!”
Speaking of Kate Bush, she has a new album out in less than a week that is streaming online now.
