Track Of The Day: The Great Sadness (aka Stephen Jones, ex-Babybird) - Music Is My Only Friend

Stephen Jones, formerly the creative force behind Babybird has been a very busy man this year. After the Death Of The Neighbourhood album 'Redux' arrived at the tail end of 2012, he has since released no less than EIGHT records as Black Reindeer, his largely instrumental project recalling soundtrack music. But fans of his more familiar happy-sad, pretty-dark twisted pop have been waiting a while for him to release something more reminiscent of the much-loved Babybird. 

With his new alias The Great Sadness, Jones has made a return to the achingly beautiful melancholia of his earlier efforts and yet still continues to develop and grow as an artist. The splendid 'Music Is My Only Friend' is the first taster from an upcoming album, expected later in the year on ATIC Records... To hear those excellent Black Reindeer albums, along with a load of rare Babybird treasures, solo material and much more from the hugely prolific Jones, go to his Bandcamp page HERE...
