Moments of_Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, BRMC
This is gritty, dirty, incoherent and hums along so uncomfortably good, any Spacemen 3 fan will fill right at home.
Cut_ Loop Di Li
Moments of_ Grace Jones, Blood Orange, Twin Shadow, Happy Mondays
Bryan Ferry’s 15th album, the uber cool man of groove and swagger does no wrong on this track. It oozes such smooth grooves and Ferry’s voice sooths like honey like no other. Smashing track.
Artist_ Foo Fighters
Cut_ What Did I Do?/God as My Witness
Moments of_ Band of Horses, Pearl Jam, Bush
Formula perhaps, because you know what you are getting with the Foo Fighters these days. This track, one of the better ones from their latest album, has all the usual FF elements, nothing new here, but consistency rules with these fellas.
Cut_ Move With The Season (Beyond The Wizards Sleeve Reanimation)
Moments of_ Syd Barrett, The Beach Boys, Foxygen, Tame Impala
Temples had a magnifcent 2014 with the release of their debut Sun Sructures and the pletharo of 5* reviews that followed. With the release of a slightly self-indulgent album of track mixes that are layered with pyschedlic goodness.
Artist_ Ariel Pink
Cut_ Put Your Number in My Phone
Moments of_ Foxygen, David Bowie, Syd Barrett
A tripped out track from a peculiar album and a peculiar man, what else would you expect from Ariel Pink. It is a 3 minute wonder and offers just enough blissed out vibe to suit a swayable punter.
Artist_ The Velvet Underground
Cut_ Beginning To See The Light
Moments of_ The Velver Underground
Its been 45 years, yep, 45 years since the release of the self-titled album The Velvet Underground (actually they had many) but listening to this today, it still holds its own. Thank you Lou Reed.
