The Kinks – Father Christmas

As i've said many times, I love Christmas, so every year I try to put up a Christmas Song. So here goes for this year..and its a track I have to say has only been in my Christmas playlist for a couple of years. But I think its ace.   So im sure you have all heard of the Kinks, so not much to be said there. And this is a typical Kinks track, catchy,...

MTNS – Waves

It's quite rare I get sent an E.P and I'm genuinely stuck on which track I want to feature but it does happen and the Like a Stone EP  from Brisbane based Australian Trio MTNS is one of those occasions.   From the minute I first put it on two tracks jumped out at me, Waves and Slow Motion they are both absolutely wonderful tracks. I'm going to opt for Waves as the feature but regardless you...

Kauf – Regrowth LP

So regular readers will know we've long been fans of Kauf and his melancholic melodic emotion-laden brand of Electonica and finally we have an album and surprise surprise it's quite wonderful.   Regrowth as an LP is that rare thing in modern music a cohesive journey. In a time where, I'd say, 99% of albums feel pieced together after the fact an album like this where it's clearly been curated to fill out the details of a...

Hatchie – Sure

So as Aapie said yesterday, its been a funny old time with him being out of action and me frankly being all over the place. Anyway, we are back now, so all is good. And like Aapie i have been using the time to catch up on some music. While doing that I came across tonight’s gem.   Look, I love a bit of Indie Pop, and frankly, i don't really trust anyone who doesn’t. Hatchie is Harriette Pilbeam,...

This Is The Kit – Hotter Colder

Tonights track has been all over BBC 6 music for weeks now and relentlessly on my car stereo…and for good reason. It is absolutely, off the scale stunning. In fact, the first time i heard it, it came on my internet radio in the kitchen and i thought to myself, hello, what is this. At exactly the same moment my wife asked what it was. Its the sort of track that creates that impact.  ...

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

To be honest i could get away with writing nothing and just posting tonight’s track. Such is the magnitude of this song and the band who released it.  For some reason, this song seems to come on  via random more than others when i am cruising to work and every time it does…i go a little bit bonkers. In fact, i still get the same emotion/thrill when i hear as i did the first time....

Kauf – Limestone

I think I speak for both Fourbearsjr and myself in stressing how important emotion is in the music we enjoy.   I understand that emotion is a very difficult quality to pinpoint in words with any subtleness. Love, Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Pain! All great words that convey an emotional point and leave no real room for interpretation. But when you move away from the written medium emotion becomes much harder to explain. Yet it's something that really...

Yumi Zouma – Persephone

A journey that should have taken me about 15 minutes took me over an hour today. That's the way it is in Malta sometimes if there is an accident or a breakdown. But usually the sun is shining and the music is playing so it kind of makes up for it. I also had a colleague with me who i picked up on the way so I didn't subject him to my music taste so...

Vulfpeck – Back Pocket

Posts have been a bit thin on the ground between Aapie and I for a number of reasons. Mostly to do with us being old gits with jobs and families (neither of those are bad things by the way and I'm not complaining). additionally, i have been meaning to post this track fooooorrrreevvvvvvvveeeer.   Why? well because it is funky as hell. You have probably heard of Vulfpeck, the American funk/indie band. Their last album got...
