JP Marat and Big Barking Dog present "Hats" by The Blue Nile

Very few people today know about, a remarkably talented and idiosyncratic band called "The Blue Nile." While eschewing the spot light they gained the admiration and support of Peter Gabriel and Rickie Lee Jones. Today we offer tracks from "Hats", an album that earned the highest accolades from Mojo, NME, Pitchfork, Q and many other musical/cultural magazines. If you look for hidden gems to impress your audiophile friends . . . . consider this a lucky day.
