The Monkees – Listen To The Band

A quick one tonight. I have loaded Up a load more stuff on the old, usb stick and was flicking through, when stuck in traffic, when this beauty came on.   I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Monkees and many will know that Mike Nesmith released some excellent country rock stuff around the time of Gram Parsons, Gene Clark etc. He wrote great tracks like Different Drum. This late Monkees track showed where he was headed and...

Parcels – Herefore (Roisto Remix)

It's a Bank Holiday weekend, so lets get the week rolling with a nice up tempo slice of happy clappy dance music from blog favourite Roisto, and his superb remix of Herefore by Parcels.   As with most tracks by Roisto it's pure unadulterated poppy disco, and that's a good thing.    The original track by Parcels (below) is about as far removed from Roisto's remix as you can get. Down tempo half time loungey eletronica. I'm not going...

The Revenge – Conkers

Tracks from the Revenge are a regular occurrence on this blog, be it slow mo or deep house Monsieur Clark's music just strikes a chord with me and over the weekend i picked up the both the "Intimate Collection" and the "Roar Groove meets the Dirt Crew" Ep's, both are great and I could have featured any number of tracks but I opted for Conkers because, well, it just rocks.   One of the things i've...

Fort Romeau – Secrets & Lies

I've been a bit absent without leave for the last week or so, so I wanted to come back with an absolutely killer track. Luckily I've been listening to some great music of late, and I decided to opt for Secret & Lies by Fort Romeau.   It's an interesting track that sits across a multitude of time periods, the late 80's early 90's Acid wig out of Aphex Twin, the snappy deep tech house drums of the early 90's...

Half Man Half Biscuit – Took Problem Chimp To The Ideal Home Show

I'm sorry but this had to be done. It came on this morning and it had to go up. It's a bit out there and unless you are from the Uk you probably won't get the references. But it should go up for the name alone.   I have always had a soft spot for Half Man Half Biscuit. Their indie plus humour approach has always been vastly superior to many bands who try. Mainly because they...

Childish Gambino – Sober (Oliver Nelson remix)

Just a quick one tonight as I am flat out knackered and I'm not going to lie to you, I didn't listen to this track on the way to work, in fact I came across it on Facebook and then I noticed Aapie and I had been sent a copy. But I tell you what, I will be blasting it out of my car on the way to work tomorrow. It's really warming up in Malta (apparently...

Hot 8 Brass Band – Sexual Healing & Williams Fairey Brass Band – Voodoo Ray

So it's a two for one , brass band cover version kind of thing tonight. I have been meaning to put the Hot 8 Brass Band cover version since it came out, but when it came on this morning it gave me the opportunity to do so.   So, these kind of things, genre bending cover versions, can be a bit hit and miss. Plus there are some tracks that you really don't touch. I...

Lauryn Hill – Lost Ones

Been delving into my hip hop vaults lately and somehow ended up listening to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill which in turn reminded me how brilliant a track "Lost Ones" was, so that's my choice today.   Now fair play, it's not exactly a track, or album, that flew under the radar, off the back off the Fugees success Hill's album was always going to be huge and of course was. In reality i'm not a massive...

sir Was – Falcon

Just a quick one tonight, but it's a fantastic track so I had to stick it up as I have been really playing it to death. And it's from a relatively new artist that we featured a few weeks back, the Gothenbrerg based sir Was.   He is due to release his debut ep on City Slang at the start of June and this is a track from it. Following on from the tremendous a Minor...

Ceiling Demons – Stones

Hip Hop is a very interesting genre, it means a lot of things to lots of different people and it's a style of music everyone has an opinion on. so here's mine. I think Hip Hop in it's truest form is all about expressing yourselves in a way that is uniquely individual, for me that's when it’s at it’s best – like punk it was about expressing yourself, and that individuality is what has really defined all the...
