after a little too much red wine last night, amid MUCH DANCING, decided that this is the most joyous thing ever.
Still have to start this northern soul night i've been threatening for 5 years - here's another killer. check the horn crescendo around 1.12... and tremble.
finally, was reminded by a friends post on Faceberk the other day about how when i was in third year juniors my teacher Mr Fretwell used to, shout at me "AHHHHHH Dean Taylor - there's a ghost in my house!"
although, i often find when a song is more focused like this one, i get bored more quickly In fact, think i might have even been getting bored before that one finished. Expect a big push for this lot and broadsheet features that nobody reads apart from the band, label and publicist.
I'm always loathe to post stuff from artists i work with (or for) on here business and pleasure and all, but this is really rather lovely. I Too Was Untrue by Sun Green
check out his bands album too, which is one of those records that doesn't belong in the internet age (ie it rewards patience) Driver Drive Faster – Open House
Driver Drive Faster are from Manchester, as is this next artist. Liz Green is certainly one of, if not the most interesting artist to come out of the rainy city in a long while. Need evidence?
Ok, so this is the best Hip-Hop album album i've heard in quite a while
not available on Spotify yet, but you could actually BUY it....
Anybody who's read my blog over the last few years would know that i got quite excited about the 'Chillwave' phenomenon a few years back, but to be honest most of the acts second albums have left me a little cold as opposed to the requisite 'chilled' (Panda Bear, Memory Tapes, Washed Out, i'm looking at you). However, the good news is that John Maus, credited by some (i dont fucking know who, Pitchfork maybe?) as the 'Godfather of Chillwave' (yes i am aware of how ridiculous this sounds), has produced a rather lovely little album.
Do you like Nu-Folk?... No, me neither, however, absolutely no idea who this man is, but he does that sort of cosmic Wicker Man vibe pretty well
if you like videos, or, if you have spotify, this is the song that keeps me running at the gym. (Yes, i have a very odd soundtrack for the gym, i often look around and wonder who else could possibly be listening to Bat Chain Puller By Captain Beefheart...) Alexander Tucker – Matter
