Parisian Soul – Keep On Dancing

It's been a while since I posted, mainly because I've been flogged at work, and stuck traveling a lot. I literally only got back yesterday form two weeks away so today being my first day off in similar time I decided to catch up on some new music and was promptly gob smacked by the new Parisian Soul 12, and the track Keep on Dancing.   It's about as simple a track as you'll get, a thumping...

Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

When I decided to do todays post I had to check back through the archives because i just couldn't believe neither of us had blogged it at any point. Yes, it's a chestnut, but for good reason as it might just be one of the best songs ever written (actually no might about it – it is). It's certainly a point where Fourbearsjr and myself's musical taste really first converged, as kids we both listened to...

TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio – Put Your Hands Up For Detroit

Absolute blast from the past here in TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio funked up cover version of Put Your Hands Up For Detroit by Fedde Le Grand and it's pretty much exactly what you think, a super funk version performed by a life band.   I was always a fan of TM Juke ever since i heard "Life, Rainfall" many years ago. That was a very sample heavy track, and it's nice to see how he's...

Dreamcast & Sasac – Liquid Deep

Just a quick post tonight but I wanted to stick something up as I have been coming across some really lovely stuff which I have been blasting out as I cruise to work (oh yeah).   I actually came across this track while flicking through soundcloud (I think) and to be fair I don't know a huge amount about the artists/label other than the first is from Sweden and the later is Washington DC based PPU. But what...

Sugar Chile Robinson – Christmas Boogie

Every year I try to post up at least 1 Christmas track, so here goes. Every year I bang on about how much I love Christmas. It's true, I do. Like most things some of my best memories of Christmas are of the music that was played, even carols (I really love carols)   Then over the years i have picked up more Christmas songs that I add to the playlist. A few years ago I came across...

Tiaan – Devils Touch

Sometimes you need to indulge in some guilty pleasure, and todays choice, Devils Touch, is just such a track.   Don't really know much about Tiaan, other than she's form Australia and daughter of Doug Williams and in truth Devils Touch passed me by at the time picking it up a fair while after it broke the charts. But it's a wonderful electronic-tinged scando-pop song, reminding me a lot of artitsts such as Aluna George and the whole Naked Music sound and in...

Kon – Awe Baby (Medlar Remix)

It's been wonderfully hot this past weekend, like 37° hot, and clear and dry and basically wonderful, so I've been chilling out around the pool with some pretty mellow tunes over the last few days, top pick of which is the wonderfully brilliant Medlar remix of Kon's "Awe Baby" on BBE.   If you've heard the original from Kon's 2013 LP "On my Way" the remix will be familiar but different enough it worth while. Taking the bulk...

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...

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...

Merry Clayton – Southern Man (Scrimshire Edit)

I do love a cheeky cover version, especially when someone takes a version of a classic and absolutely owns it, as is the case with this awesome Merry Clayton version of the Neil Young favourite Southern Man.   The story behind Southern Man should be well known, briefly it's a commentary on the racism of the US’s Southern States. As Neil young tracks go it's pretty darn funky, but the Merry Clayton version turns the...
