“I think I’m supposed to be having a midlife crisis, you know? I’ve got the fast motorcycle and the young girlfriend, I’m considering buying a speedboat, my hair’s getting bigger and bigger. But I don’t feel old mentally in any way, shape or form,”
I know what you mean dude Read more:
And what about this ‘lil flick, Harvey djing in a motorhome by the shore of a sunny LA beach break. Are you fucking joking me! Being able to snag a few waves whilst having Harveys beats in earshot, its so rad I might go on fire. (Edit: it was perfect right up til the moment a SUP’er slides into the party)
Just heard this on a great Kevin Parker Mixcloud set and perfectly suited todays blustery, brooding weather.
I can feel the heat in the air and taste the cerveza, perfect blissed out summmer evening beat.
I just heard this on 6music and it reminded me how fucking great KOL were when they first arrived on our shores ten years ago (really, 10 years) Youth and Young Manhood will always be one of my go to albums, although I became completely uninterested by anything by them after Aha Shake. Its like all that Sex on Fire shit was created by bad robot Kings of Leons and the real ones are tied up in a record company broom cupboard still to this day, perfectly preserved with beards, flares and Slade fringes still intact.
This’ll get your Friday evening going in the right direction, whether its a night in front of the big speakers or just dancing around the kitchen. Ninja Tunes back on form again.
Wow first track of this year to knock me off my feet. Discovered this gem via the Ubiquitous Gilles Peterson radio show as usual. The more I learn about this cat Om’mas Keith the more I like, he was really charismatic on the show and chatted some true beat knowledge. Oh and did I mention he only bloomin went and produced Franck Oceans last album, ahhh now you get it. As a little Easter gift the album that features this killer track is available as a kosher FREE DOWNLOAD, yeah incredible ehh, Happy Easter.
Great track but the video is the star here, I’m not an authority on Wall of Deaths BUT I’ve seen a few and never ever seen a car on one let alone two cars and a couple of motorcycles. This is soo good.
For some reason I’m always more excited about new music in the early part of the year, suppose it because all last years tracks have been weighed and measured. So heres two that you really should listen to.
John Grant – Pale Green Ghosts
Apparently inspired by Icelandic night time driving experiences and I can hear how that suits this song perfectly. Hes quite an enigma John Grant and always seems to choose cool people to work with, his last record was with the incredible Midlake and I think Gus Gus have a hand in producing his new stuff and which is a really good thing.
Jagwar Ma – The Throw
Australian youth channeling the sound of Manchester 25 years ago which is fine by me. Unfortunately that original scene went down hill really quick, but before Northside and Candy Flip ruined the party there was some great music too. This is reminiscent of Bummed era Mondays, Paris Angels and maybe even a bit New FADs, look that one up kids.
Every schoolboys fantasy accompanied by the perfect song. Tame Impala still can do no wrong in my book.
The title says it all really, theres just something very quaint about these designs. Pete and Carl have always seemed somewhat self-styled anachronistic little urchins so this suits them perfectly. See the full set here.
