Nights At The Roundtable with Massive Attack tonight and a track probably familiar to a lot of people, but still pretty unforgettable - Paradise Circus (featuring Hope Sandoval) - (Gui Boratto remix)
February 12, 2011

Massive Attack - familiar territory for an unfamiliar night.

I suspect millions of people have heard this track, and heard it quite a bit. But it seems completely appropriate for a Friday night, and this Friday night especially.

Massive Attack have achieved a wide ranging popularity the past few years. They have gone off into completely uncharted territory with their music. The end result has been an overwhelmingly powerful message, and one which certainly compliments this set of times we're currently witnessing.

And maybe it's for that reason that I was so struck by tonight's track, Paradise Circus featuring Hope Sandoval on vocals (the Gui Boratto remix version).

Maybe not one of those songs with a "spot-on" message (thank god), but a hopeful one and a cautiously optimistic one.

Just like today is.
