Junk Son – Over (Ross from Friends Remix)

I've featured Ross from Friends before, there is just something about that f*cked up overly compressed and EQ'd sound that makes me think of desperately hunting around for a cassette before my favourite track comes on the radio. It's a quite unique sound and in this day and age that's quite a rare thing.   In Over you that sound is cranked up to the Nth degree, taking the lovely soulful electronica of Junk Son and...

Booker T & The MG’s – Soul Limbo

They don't create them tunes like this anymore. So, the other day I was driving to work just randomly playing through stuff on the USB stick in my car when todays track came on and it got me thinking.   Maybe it's because I'm older, maybe it's because the internet has demystified finding out what the name of a track is or who it's by, but I can't think of many theme tunes these days where I...

The Revenge – Our Own Thing

Something I love is going back to a track some months on and realising it's actually an absolutely outstanding gem of a tune. Case in point todays track, Our Own Thing by The Revenge. I've had it for months, it's actually the bonus track on the Intimate Connection EP from last March, but it's only in listening to it this last week I've been trully sucked in by it. Not that I didn't like then it's...

Generationals feat. Sarah Quintana- In Green

Just a quick one tonight (i think that may well be my catchphrase), but its a track that i have been playing a lot from a band i very much like the work of.    I have featured Generationals on the blog before, the fantastic Put A Light on from a few years back. That track is a lovely blend of roughed up beats and pop hooks. Tonight's track is more of the same although this...

Kauf – Pacify

I always feel like I start any post about Kauf with "we're big fans around here" but it's a truth that Kaufs music has never failed to disappoint us. Emotive, melodic, dark and light in equal measures. Sometimes an artist just resonates with you and I think i speak for both myself and Fourbearsjr in saying, uhm, we're big fans of Kauf around these parts. 🙂   So it was not without much glee that...

Rhymefest – One Hand Pushup

I think we’ve been running this blog for about 5 years now and I don't think we've ever featured Rhymefest, which is frankly quite incredible, considering how bloody good he is.I went for One Hand Push because it's not that well known up but could have gone for any number of tracks by Mr Che Smith. Grammy winning Mr Smith i should add.    Rhymefest is probably best known for writing Kanye's wicked "Jesus Walk's" and...

Danny & The Champions Of The World – (Never Stop Building) That Old Space Rocket

Something a little different tonight but honestly, i think this song is impossible to dislike. Since a good friend of mine (John) came to stay in Malta over the summer and played me this track, i have been hammering it on and off on the way to work. So if anyone sees me screaming like a maniac in my car on the roads of Malta, its probably because i am playing this track.   I honestly...

Grand National – Peanut Dreams

Sometimes you've just got to dive into the crates and pluck out some of your favourite tracks and I'm doing that today (maybe even this week) and today opting for the utterly magnificent Peanut Dreams by Grand National.   I can clearly remember hearing Peanut Dreams for the first time time. It was on a mix CD of indie Dance that FourbearsJr gave me when he came to visit. We were sat with a beer and...

The Only Ones – Another Girl Another Planet

Ok, so today's track didn't come on while driving to work, but it did come on via 6 music as I was in a sleepy haze, having breakfast with my son. I was immediately a happy man.   So this is a classic track, no surprises, but when a classic comes on sometimes you just have to go with it. Plus, I have been listening to this song for near on 27 years and I...

Birdee – Hold On

I've not been able to post for a fair while due to travelling with work, flying is a complete pain in the balls, but it does give me a chance to listen to music and this week my various treks across the globe have been sound tracked by the New Youth Control EP, Birdee – Three Sides of Love.   It's an interesting EP, I guess in some ways Birdee's EP is a bit of departure...
