Former Pulp frontman and all-round legend Jarvis Cocker has taken to posting weekly bedtime stories.

These are for adults more than kids, with the first being Richard Brautigan’s Times Square in Montana, while this week’s is Tove Jansson’s The Spring Tune.

We can think of much worse things than drifting off to sleepy-bobos land with the dulcet tones of Mr Cocker echoing in our ears. Hear both stories just below.

Meanwhile, Jarvis has put together a new, post-Pulp band, named Jarv Is…, and they have an album coming out on September 4 entitled Beyond the Pale. Skip over the two stories below for a taste if it.
