Kaptein Robyn Hitchcock Strikes Again

Scrufy's personal King of Cool, Robyn Hitchcock, is back at it, releasing another new collection that you should buy post-haste. Why? Because it's more Hitchcock at his best, finely-crafted melodies, unusual lyrical turns, joyful harmonies, sonic drama, whimsy and deep you need more? Pre-order now at his website and you'll get the digital version immediately. Here's the info from the horse's mouth:

"Norwegian label Hype City release a new collection of songs by Robyn Hitchcock on April 8th, TROMSØ, KAPTEIN (pronounced ‘Tromser, Cap-tine’), on LP and CD. Produced by Paul Noble, the record features 8 new RH compositions and well as a re-recording of ‘Raining Twilight Coast’ from EYE and a new Norwegian language version of GOODNIGHT OSLO. The record will be available outside Norway in surviving record shops, and also available by mail order from this site."
