26 November 2013

Eyes down for a full house...

Dum Dum Girls - Lost Boys And Girls Club
From LA and off an album called 'Too True' which comes out early next year. I can see this being a reasonable hit. And good luck to them.

B Negao e Seletores De Frequencia - Essa E Pra Tocar No Baile (Chernobyl Atomic mix)
More adventures of my trip into Brazilian music with next years World Cup in mind. No idea what they're on about. Apologies to any Portuguese speakers if it offends, but I reckon that's a cracker.

Kagoule - Adjust The Way
Something a bit closer to home. These are from Nottingham and this is available as a free download.

Cover Version Corner
SOS Band - Just Be Good To Me
Beats International - Dub Be Good To Me
That Beats International record still sounds so good. From 1990, would you believe, and of course it was Norman Cook's first post-Housemartins project. Amazing how much the addition of a Clash sample transforms it from the original which now does sound rather dated. That's off an album called 'On The Rise' from 1983.

Maximo Park - Brain Cells
New stuff from these is always a treat. This is the first single from the forthcoming album 'Too Much Information' which is due out early in the new year. Can't believe we're already talking about next year...

Lazyboy - Pica Disco
Time for a Tuesday banger. Lazyboy are Dan Carey and Radio 1's Rod Da Bank. That's a cracking tune. Out now on Sunday Best records.

Silver Arm - Steady Like A Vein
A new single from these. It's not normally the sort of stuff I go for, but there's an undeniable energy about it all that draws me in.

One Degree of Separation
Hey, Rube! - Bali Hai
Dino Lenny vs The Housemartins - Change The World (Dub mix)
Your link here is Hull, the beautiful and cultured city of Hull. The naming of the place as the 2017 Capital of Culture was easy to scoff at, which is why so many did, I presume. Hence why I put this 12-track playlist of Hull music up the other day and these are two favourites from that. The Hey, Rube! track is off last year's 'Can You Hear Me Mutha?' album, while the second is old favourites the Housemartins being mashed up in a rub-a-dub stylee by Italian DJ Dino Lenny.

Grandaddy - AM 180
Time for a couple more. First this, from 1997's 'Under The Western Freeway' album and which you may know from Charlie Brooker's TV shows.

Giorgio Moroder - The Chase
Throwing forward to Phil Brook's Down Tempo show which follows us, this from the Oscar-winning soundtrack to Midnight Express back in 1978.

And that'll do you. You can listen to these via a combination of the power of YouTube or via our Soundcloud page. Not all are on both, but you know what you're doing with a computer - you'll work it out.
