Now In Haiku! Amanda Palmer, Belle and Sebastian, Boston Spaceships, Kevin Drew and Jeff Healey

Further to a recent conversation with James, I have (lately) been feeling the urge to try to write haiku. Don’t ask me why, just accept the spasms of my brain. Mind you, it does tie in nicely with my attempt to encapsulate my thoughts in a more succint manner.

Of course, I am terrible at haiku but, of course, this does not stop me. So, here are the first ever haiku for the KMA, comprised of stuff that’s been in my ears this week.

You’ll probably read these in 20 seconds and think I’m copping out, but this was a fun project and you’d be doing yourself a disservice to so quickly dismiss them. It’s difficult to get an album’s-worth of impressions into 17 syllables. Any comments would be appreciated (even in haiku!), so let’s hear it from you, Faithful KMA Readers…

Amanda Palmer – Who Killed Amanda Palmer?

piano freak girl
same, but now solo from Dolls
redeeming poems

Belle And Sebastian – The BBC Sessions

twee gods live and free
open, bright spare gorgeous tracks
as it is heard best

Boston Spaceships – The Planets Are Blasted

Spaceships overhead
dropping rawk bombs on the weak
as ever, genius

Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew – Spirit If

gleeful noise and pop
full indie affectations
played to great effect

Jeff Healey – Mess Of Blues

posthumous release
only makes me miss him more
sweet covers and blues
