September’s Here Again

Achingly beautiful, David Sylvian’s September is a dusty old photograph of a song. It’s a snapshot of Satie-style piano, oblique and wistful: the flickering memories of a great summer. The vocal is mannered, coming from Sylvian’s early solo work, but the effect is wonderful. I live for summer and worship the sun, and this song is my annual ritual. Autumn’s in the air…

  1. Your words flow and I am in the September slide into autumn….. Tried to find the recording but no luck?

    • I think the video above has an iTunes link on its YouTube page. There is a remastered version from a few years ago.

  2. Herman

    The two-disc compilation ‘A Victim of Stars: 1982-2012’ is a great way to discover David Sylvian.

    • Thanks Herman. I go right back to the rock n roll version of Japan, thanks to my older brother. I love Nightporter, Polaroids and Brilliant Trees. Have yet to explore his later stuff.

Let me know what you think...
