28 June 2016

Some special treats for you today. Strap in.

Martha - Ice Cream And Sunscreen
From the town of Pity Me in County Durham. This is off their second LP Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart.

Mutineers - Infidelity
From 2010. Not sure how this passed me by, but still worth coming back to. Friends, Lovers, Rivals is the album. Definite New Order vibe there.

Wedding Present - Bear
New stuff from Dave Gedge's evergreen collective. Still going, still great.

Featured Album: De La Soul - Stakes Is High
Stakes Is High
The Bizness feat. Common
Twenty years ago almost to the day, Stakes Is High was released. It marked a new direction for De La Soul and a change of sound, their first LP without Prince Paul on production. It's a comment on the state of hip-hop at the time.

Atmosphere - Ringo
Minnesota duo with their eighth LP Fishing Blues.

Fightmilk - Some Boys
Don't know much about these apart from this is really good.

Palm Honey - You Stole My Blackout
Another one I know little of. Apart from they're from Reading.

Evans The Death - Haunted Wheelchair
London next. Off the LP Vanilla which came out a couple of weeks ago.

Ought - Beautiful Blue Sky
Another one from a while back - only a year this time. The Montreal band released Sun Coming Down in 2015, but this is a sublime track. Absolutely stunning.

Featured Album: De La Soul - Stakes Is High
Another cracking track from our featured LP. They were unmatched in this period.

Portishead - SOS
A cover of the ABBA record in memoriam of Jo Cox. Haunting, beautiful.

Alone - Hold Hands Over Borders
Another track inspired by recent events. 8-bit cool.

Aphex Twin - Cirklon3
NEW APHEX TWIN STUFF! Get you some of that.

Here's that on Youtube:

and Soundcloud:

and we'll have another go at it next week.
