Rather less stress around 17 Seconds towers today, which is nice. My review of Emma Pollock has been added to legendary scottish music magazine/website Is This Music?, and as always am flattered by a few comments that have come way about this blog.
Today also saw me visit a record shop. Now just in case Mrs. 17 Seconds is reading this and flips, I did not pick up all of these today, but I picked up some great remixes of tracks by the Gossip, and the recent Hot Chip 12″ single. And just in case any of you fine people out there hadn’t heard these, I just had to make you aware of them!
The Gossip -‘Standing In The Way Of Control.’ mp3
The Gossip -‘Standing In The way Of Control (Soulwax nite version).’ mp3
The Gossip -‘Standing In the Way Of Control (Le Tigre remix).’ mp3
The Gossip -‘Listen Up.’ mp3
The Gossip -‘Listen Up (MSTRKRFT mix).’ mp3
And this track, which vies with ‘D.A.N.C.E.’ by Justice as the track of the summer.
Hot Chip -‘My Piano.’ mp3
And just writing that has made me itchy for Justice, whose album I am listening to as I type this, so go on! (Said in the tone of an exasperated but friendly uncle).
Justice -‘D.A.N.C.E.’ mp3
Justice -‘D.A.N.C.E.(MSTRKRFT remix).’ mp3
Justice -‘D.A.N.C.E. (extended mix).’ mp3
Justice -‘Waters Of Nazareth.’ mp3
As always, links will be up for one week. If you like what you hear, please support the artists involved, preferably through your local independent record store.
Phew, rock ‘n’ roll…
