When Doves fly
I have the lead story on Pop Matters today -- an interview with Doves. I last interviewed the band around the release of their debut, "Lost Souls," but have been keeping up with every release and tour ever since. In the interview, Jimi Goodwin explains why the trio's latest, took several years to make and why he still hasn't recovered from the birthing pains. The result is a fine record. Not quite the hyper leap I'd hoped for but, as a consolidation of their strengths, this is one I'll be listening to for many months. For starters, "Compulsion" and "The Greatest Denier" are shoo-ins for a future Doves 'Best Of.'
