The latest podcast from Folkcast is now available. If you love good music I strongly recommend that you give it a try. Of particular merit this month is a wonderful track called Ulv, Ræv og Hare (Wolf, Fox and Hare) by Danish band Phønix. I tried to buy a copy of their latest album on the strength of this, but Amazon UK don’t seem to have it yet and I didn’t want to order it from Denmark. I could have had it as a download but I’m not too keen on the subscription services that stock it and the others all seem to require me to run Windows, which just isn’t going to happen. I guess I’ll just have to wait until Amazon have it or I find it elsewhere.
Update: After checking the prices of the band’s other albums on Amazon, where they’re available as imports from Germany, it became obvious that it would be cheaper for me to order the CD direct from Denmark, so I have. Including postage to the UK and Danish VAT (25%!!) it worked out at DKK 159.00, which I reckon is £15.73. Bargain.
