I’ll write it here so I can’t break it – my new April’s resolution (?) is to start blogging again! I’ve managed to build the blog up to a reasonable readership, then I just stopped for 2 months, without good reason. I’m sorry – I have awaken from my stupor, and I’m back, and I promise from here on in this blog will only continue to get bigger and better!
Now musically, I don’t really know where to start, because although those two months have not been as fruitful musically as some others, there’s still plenty I could and should have shared. To get things moving along, I’ll post some stuff that I’ve got really recently.
Jamie xx – Boiler Room #35, Unknown Track
So I actually don’t have a clue what this is. New Harmonix has been suggested. I’m posting it here for two reasons – firstly, it sound like it’s pretty good – somewhere between Burial and Hudson Mohawke. The second reason is to ask you guys. If anyone knows what this is, please, I beg you comment below!
Jamie Lidell – A Little Bit More (Luke Vibert Mix)
This track is unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. It takes aspects of all sorts of genres and crosses them into one, giving this song a really unusual feel – does it belong on a high energy dancefloor or in a relaxed living room? It also gives me another question – why hasn’t it become any more popular?!
David Morales – Needin’ U
If you live anywhere near me, you’ll be experiencing the weather that, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have been waiting for for the last eight months. What better way to celebrate the sunkissed state of affairs than with this early 00′s house anthem from David Morales?
Quantic – Not So Blue
I’ve always wanted a friend who listened to different but good music to me – and now it looks like I found one! So cheers buddy, you know who you are. This 2002 track from Quantic blurs the boundaries between electronic jazz and instrumental hip-hop.
Tall Ships – Chemistry
Those who were reading this blog when Foals last album came out will remember my disappointment at the loss of the ‘original’ Foals sound and it’s lack of a replacement. Well, eventually my woes have been brought to an end by Brighton-ers Tall Ships, who compose a similar type of maths-rock aesthetic. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys.
Well those highly varied songs are enough to be going on with I think. I will bring more soon, and it won’t be in such a jumbled fashion as this. Thankyou for reading.
