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...

Netsiah – Two Lives

In the uk at the moment, arrived yesterday as the sad event was taking place in London. This morning I travelled to work on the tube from my dad's and while people were going about their business as normal there was a sadness in the air. I plugged in my headphones and turned on some tunes to cheer me up.   On came today's track, a track we were sent and I have been playing a fair...

Voluntary Butler Scheme – Trading Things In.

I thought I would end the week with a bit of fun and maybe try to give you a song that will be stuck in your head for the weekend and beyond.   I'm sure I have mentioned before that I am a sucker for the 2 minute or so pop/indie song and tonight's track just about makes it in at 2.33. But it certainly passes the catchy as hell criteria. I was put on...

Sun Kil Moon – Neverending Math Equation

So it's going to be a short one tonight as I have covered mark kozelek/sun kil moon before and he is well known to most. I am a big fan of his work and I have been meaning to stick this track up for forever so when it came on today I did.   the weather in malta is really getting great now, beautiful, warm sunshine in the morning as I cruise to work and...

Half Waif – Frost Burn

A quick one tonight but a track I have been meaning to put up for a while. It follows on from the Half Waif track I posted a couple of weeks ago- it's so good it had to go up.   While I loved Severed Logic I like Frost Burn even more. It's the second single from her upcoming ep. Again it is a lovely blend of vocal electronica but I love the synth riff build that then breaks into the...

Baby Charles – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Look, I am going to make this really easy for you. This came on this morning and made me remember how good it is. New funk and funk covers became/are quite common/popular. Some miss, but this just works brilliantly.   obviously it helps that the arctic monkeys original is a truly immense track but it suits funk so well, plus it is done so well. The drums/percussion just fire it along and the vocal is...

Half Waif – Severed Logic

As Aapie mentioned, it was a pretty difficult start to the year for us. But things are getting back to normal and I have been catching up on stuff that we have been sent over the last couple of months and there is some fantastic stuff in there. Today's track is one of those.   Half Waif is Nadi Rose Plunkett. Who has an interesting background, the daughter of an Indian refugee and an American father of...

Archivist – Same High

Sometimes it really does take me a while to get round to posting stuff up. I have come across Archivists stuff before but its only now that i am going to post something as this has been a tune i have been doing some proper laid back cruising too (especially as the traffic is abating a bit in Malta with a couple of bank holidays and the lead up to christmas).   Archivist are a...
