23 June 2015

Back refreshed and ready to go again.

Slug - Running To Get Past Your Heart
Another track from the album Ripe which I cannot recommend strongly enough.

Blossoms - Cut Me And I'll Bleed
A Manchester band we've played before. This is their second single which came out in March, but I've only just got round to after it appeared on a compilation album from the Hope Not Hate organisation which is well worth it.

Kagoule - Glue
From Nottingham and with an album called Urth due out in August. Very much looking forward to it too.

Cover Version Corner
Moody Blues - Nights In White Satin
Girogio Moroder - Knights In White Satin
Bloody love that Moody Blues track. Always have. From the 1967 album Days Of Future Passed. Then nine years later and with an added K and off the album of the same name. I play that as Giorgio Moroder has a new album out soon.

Dave McCabe and The Ramifications - Too Damn Good
Ex-Zutons front man Dave McCabe's new project which is pretty damn good. Church Of Miami is the album and it's out in September.

La Casa Al Mare - Sunflowers
To Rome now for some shoegaze. This came out last November and I know pretty much nothing apart from that. And that I like it.

Real Lies - Dab Housing
I wasn't sure about this one, but it's alright really. Their new single.

The Smoking Trees - Trips
From LA and off the album TST that comes out next month. That's a bit laid back as well. Almost like I planned this.

Wetdog - Chocky
An all-female three-piece from London whose album Divine Times came out last month. Perky, spiky. Like it.

Cheerleader - The Sunshine Of Your Youth
Dream-pop from Philadelphia now. Off an album of the same name, also out last month.

One Degree of Separation
Lonely Boy - Everything
Lonelady - Into The Cave
Maybe we should get these two together if they're that lonely. Lonelady is Julie Campbell from Manchester and that's off her critically acclaimed LP Hinterland which is out now. Before that, a track from an LA producer that I know next to nothing about.

The Octopus Project - Pyramid Kosmos
Three tracks left today and we're going all electronic, starting with this. They're from Austin, Texas and this is off their 2013 album Fever Forms.

bblos - Empty Promises
Ecuador now, which is a first. All hail the technology which allows people from all over to share stuff and be influenced by stuff.

Lockah - Some Velvet Evening
And finally, Tom Banks is Lockah and that's off his album Donky Pitch which came out last May, as in 2014 that is.

Here's that on YouTube:

and Soundcloud:

and I'll be back next week.
