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...

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...

Lovers & Poets – That’s The Way It Goes

The Sun is out in Paris, and when I say it's out, it's blisteringly hot, so it's pertinent that today’s choice is taken from a wonderfully summery vibe laden album Lovers & Poets II album by the group of the same name.   Lovers & Poets are Shannon and Ben Hurley, a singer songwriting duo from LA, tasting success in various other outfits this is one of their many projects focusing on slow melodic chilled out pop, it's really...

Parcels – Herefore (Roisto Remix)

It's a Bank Holiday weekend, so lets get the week rolling with a nice up tempo slice of happy clappy dance music from blog favourite Roisto, and his superb remix of Herefore by Parcels.   As with most tracks by Roisto it's pure unadulterated poppy disco, and that's a good thing.    The original track by Parcels (below) is about as far removed from Roisto's remix as you can get. Down tempo half time loungey eletronica. I'm not going...

Childish Gambino – Sober (Oliver Nelson remix)

Just a quick one tonight as I am flat out knackered and I'm not going to lie to you, I didn't listen to this track on the way to work, in fact I came across it on Facebook and then I noticed Aapie and I had been sent a copy. But I tell you what, I will be blasting it out of my car on the way to work tomorrow. It's really warming up in Malta (apparently...

Disco Despair – You Are Girl (Feat. Jeremey David)

We've featured Disco Despair a couple of times on here, I'm an unashamed fan of their disco dinged pop tinged house. So I was interested to see they had a new track coming out on Youth Control (a label that regularly features on the blog) and was extremely happy to find it in my inbox earlier this week.   It's another very strong outing from the Finnish label, an instant feel good sing along pop tune. In...

Prefab Sprout – Cars and Girls

It's a very lazy choice from me today, as it's been a long few days with a sickly son and a ton of studying to do, so I've been delving into a lot of old music that reminded me of school days (must be the exercise books) and stumbled back upon Cars and Girls by Prefab Sprout. I actually flagged it up late last week to FourbearsJr on facebook, but it seems to have stuck around for a few...

Men I Trust – Break For Lovers Ft. Helena

Something both of us on the blog are deeply in love with is melancholic music. The more (happy) sad a piece of music is the bigger a pair suckers for it you could not find. The sadder the better really.   Which leads me to my choice for today, Men I Trust's "Break for Lovers" feat Helena.   It's quite hard to put my finger on why I like it so much, in some ways it reminds me...

Sniff ‘n the tears – Driver’s seat

I had a day a day off today, so i'm again going with a pick me up freebie, Sniff 'n the tears – Driver's Seat.   Most people will know we like a bit of late 70's/early 80's nostalgia around here, it's not surprising as both fourbears jr and myself were just starting to listen to music around then (think I was 7 when this came out), so it's often a period we identify with on here be...

Evil Cowards – Moving Through Security

One group I always enjoyed was Electric Six, yeah fair enough like everyone else I got sick of people singing Gay Bar in my face, but High Voltage was pretty awesome (just ask Jack White), and though criminally under rated they’ve been steadily producing funny yet accomplished albums for the last 12 years or so. Growing up in the 80’s you couldn’t help but be exposed to some seriously tongue in cheek music. Groups like Devo...
