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...

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...

Generationals feat. Sarah Quintana- In Green

Just a quick one tonight (i think that may well be my catchphrase), but its a track that i have been playing a lot from a band i very much like the work of.    I have featured Generationals on the blog before, the fantastic Put A Light on from a few years back. That track is a lovely blend of roughed up beats and pop hooks. Tonight's track is more of the same although this...

The Only Ones – Another Girl Another Planet

Ok, so today's track didn't come on while driving to work, but it did come on via 6 music as I was in a sleepy haze, having breakfast with my son. I was immediately a happy man.   So this is a classic track, no surprises, but when a classic comes on sometimes you just have to go with it. Plus, I have been listening to this song for near on 27 years and I...

Lust For Youth – Illume

So it's a really quick one from me tonight as I am pretty knackered what with work and a poorly child. But it's a track I've been listening to quite a bit since I stuck it on a Spotify playlist to remind me to check out their new album from 2016.   Im sure many will be familiar with Lust for Youth and their Scandinavian, chillwave, electro pop. For some reason this track has always stuck...

H1 2016 Mix

So, as you know Aapie and I have full time jobs and families, so we do this on the side, when we can. We often talk about doing mixes or summaries of posts we have stuck up but rarely get time to do it. In fact i pretty much did a mix of a few tracks from 2015 that i never got round to finishing. Anyway, i finally pulled my finger out and complete a...

Th Radio Dept – Repeated Sodomy

After a final 2 pretty crazy weeks i am now on 2 weeks holiday, with little plans other than to relax with the family in the Malta sunshine. So my track picks for the next couple of weeks will be more about what im listening to / we are getting sent than the journey to work. Todays track was inspired by those (quite often annoying) facebook reminders of posts you put up in the past....

Extraperlo – Chill Aqui

Im not going to mess about tonight, straight in and out as i have only just managed to get the two littlest fourbears to sleep. Plus, i have posted about the Barcelona band Extraperlo before, a track fom the fantastic album from 2009 Desayuno Continental. Apparently they released something in 2012 which somehow managed to pass me by (damn the sheer volume of digitally released music these days), but which i will most definitely be checking out.  ...
