The Radio Dept – I don’t need love, I’ve got my band

Tonight is a track i have been meaning to put up for some time as it just keeps coming on , on my drive to work. On top of that its by one of my favourite bands and it has possibly the best Indie song title ever.   I have posted a few tracks by the Swedish band, The Radio Dept…there isn’t much more to say other than they manage to some how mine the...

Pilooski – Can’t there be Love

A little bit of a funny story behind why i'm posting this blast from the past, and it's kind of purely for my own amusement, essentially I was sat listening to some music and on came the Pilooski re-edit of Dee Edwards Why can't there be Love. As it starts I can see across the room my seven-year-old son tapping his finger along to the opening intro only to turn to me when the chopping...

MAM – Crushed Ice

My journey to walk is currently about 10 minutes drive, via school, so I don't really get much time to listen to music on the way into work, but hey ho, such is life. it just means that I have to use my spare time more wisely and make the most of it. Luckily we're a house that nearly always has some kind of music on, be it the Radio or my Son's youtube playlist which...

Depth Charge – Shaolin Buddha Finger

I have been off work quite a bit this week due to this rubbish flu thing going around. So to cheer myself up I am going to stick up something from way back that I’ve always loved.   Im actually astounded that I haven’t posted a track by Depth Charge before. I was a big fan of J Saul Kane’s work and have most of the stuff he released. I was also a big fan...

Lukid – Fela

Been really digging in the crates of late and stumbled back upon this killer cut up by Lukid of Fela Kuti (I can't place the sample right now) and decided to post it.   Despite how great it sounds there isn't anything particularly clever about this cut up, it's a pretty simple chop up and in reality, it's purely and simply a DJ track. But, contrasting with that the track starts out with a frenetic pace and...

Chromeo – Juice

Always found Chromeo a bit of an odd group, not odd weird, but odd in that I felt they always had so much potential but found them slightly the wrong side of tongue in cheek. Don't get me wrong I liked their stuff but I always just felt there was so much more potential in their music then was actually delivered.   That's maybe a little harsh, because it's hard to deny that when they hit their straps they are a...

The Go Team – Semicircle Song

I know i said this last time I posted about The Go Team, but, I absolutely, f’ing love The Go Team. And frankly i can’t see things changing with their new album that comes out on 19th Jan.   Last year they put out a few tracks from that up coming album. All are great, but OMG, the semicircle song completely makes me lose my shit. It is so, so, so, so clearly The Go Team. Noisy, melodic...

Idjut Boys – Vorn (A Man called Adam re-edit)

First up, happy New Year from me. I hope you had a great Xmas and new year and the year has started wonderfully for you.   Switching things up a little bit around these parts, and I'm going to kick off my selection with an utterly insane track from way-way back in 1997 – with the A Man Called Adam re-edit of Vorn by the Idjut Boys.   In all honesty, this track completely blew my fragile little mind...

Tune-Yards – Look At Your Hands

Happy New Year from us here at the Walk To Work. Hope you had a good one and that Santa brought you plenty of good music.   This is our first post for a while and i thought i would start the year with a track from an upcoming album that I am really looking forward to. Tune-Yards (which is now a duo) are releasing their album on 19th January – I can feel you creep...
