Anaxander- An Orderly Life

It's been a strange day, woke up to the referendum news in my home country I'm dissapointed and that's all i'll say on it.   Had to cheer myself up with some music on the way into work and decided to get on the deep house train. Been revisiting a lot of my favourite deep house of late and stumbled back upon one of my favourite tracks of the last year in Anaxander- An Orderly Life.  ...

Kauf – A Ruin

This weekend was mainly spent packing our home up ahead of the moves coming in. The result of which was as the TV disappeared I was free to play music too my hearts content. I've got a pretty big music collection but it never ceases to amaze me how you can get fixated on one track for a prolonged period of time, and over the weekend my wife and son must have been sick of hearing A Ruin...

Sophomore – Duck and Cover

One of the most difficult things in electronic music is to make it sound natural, less rigid in feel. I guess the word I'm searching for is more organic. It's a strange word to use, but for me music in it's best form does evolve and grow.   Shedding the feel of that grid, the preciseness of the computer is no easy feat, and that's why analog or outboard gear is so essential in the creating...

Wye Oak – Watching The Waiting

I have known about Wye Oak and dipped in and out of their stuff for a while, but I have to say that I love today's track and I was in a stonkingly good mood by the time I got to work having blasted it out a few times.   Watching the waiting is from their 8 track album just released, Tween, which is a collection of tracks from 2011 to 2014 that never made it on to other releases. What...

Marquis Hawkes – Ode To A Broken Heart

Just a quick one tonight, pretty shattered after a heavily broken night of sleep (damn those children, it's a common complaint on this blog by Aapie and I). I have been trying to get back into the habit of checking new stuff out and over the weekend I spent some time listening to new stuff and came across this release on the excellent Houndstooth label by Marquis Hawkes.   I am only starting to get...

Tycho – The Disconnect

Maybe it's old age, but i spent the whole of the weekend trying to find this specific track, bugging Fourbearsjr about it, making him trawl through his music to find this one track by Tycho only to realise I had it on my hard drive all along. So onto the Nexus it went, and hammered it got, and on the blog it now sits.    Taken from the first Tycho album, Past Is Prologue, I guess many people wil class...

Mary Lattimore – Wawa By The Ocean

My journey to work this morning was a bit crazy and was taken up, musically, by my son demanding to listen to Green Day. I like a bit of Green Day, so no problem, but they are not going up on the blog tonight. To be fair, I knew exactly what I was going to put up tonight as it is a piece of music that has quite honestly blown me away.   Wawa By...

Turtle – Floor

Life is a 100 mph at the moment, we're moving in a couple of weeks and whereas in the past i'd just chuck my scant belongings in a bin bag with a family it's a major logistical operation. Part of that process has been backing up as much of the music on my hard drive as possible, and in the process of doing that over the weekend I started listening to the Colours EP by Turtle on Beatknik Creative...

Jeremy Glenn – New Life

Things have been insane around here the last couple of weeks, and as such i've been absent without leave for a a while – things are getting back to normal but I'm going to delve into the vaults today as my ability to deal with new music has been severely hampered during this time, and I’ve mainly been chilling with old tracks that happen to be on my phone.   I've lumped for the uber wonderful...

Stereolab – Miss Modular

So there I am, driving to work, having a good listen to some stuff that I have loaded on the old usb, when a mix comp that my friend did for me pops up. And what should be on said comp, none other than the outstanding Peng 33 by the truly majestic Stereolab. And that is when It dawned on me, that after doing this blog for a number of years, I think we have only posted...
