Today when I got up, I received a very nice email from Matthew at Song, By Toad saying that he had got me listed at the Hype Machine. Thank you, sir, maybe people will actually read this blog now!
Anyway, just fancied posting some stuff I like, with no particular theme. Though it goes without saying: if you like what you hear, go and buy it!
Blur-’Popscene.’ mp3 (Time this was available properly, guys)
Dizzee Rascal -’Wannabe (feat Lily allen).’ mp3 (For everyone who is fed up with wannabe gangsters who just do not get it.)
Calexico -’The Ballad Of Cable Hogue.’ mp3 (Still one of my favourite tracks of the decade)
Adam and the Ants-’Cartrouble.’ mp3 (Why do so many Ants compilations leave off the pre Kings of the Wild Frontier stuff?)
Malcolm Middleton -’A Brighter Beat.’ mp3
(A very serious contender for both album and single of the year).
Ghostface Killah featuring Amy Winehouse -’You Know I’m No Good.’ mp3 (Well, actually i still love your music, Amy, but for God’s sake, PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER).
Roisin Murphy -’Overpowered.’ mp3 (Ace solo track from former Moloko frontwoman)
The Dream Academy -’Life In A Northern Town.’ mp3 (Still gorgeous, all these years later…)
Bob Marley -’Redemption Song.’ mp3 (Some things are better left unsaid)
Roll Deep -’Celebrate(Instrumental).’ mp3 (GRIME rules over Gangsta, anyday)
