Cut_ Hypnotized

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.



Artist_Bryan Ferrybryan ferry

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 FightersFoo-Fighters1-1600x1200

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 PinkAriel-Pink-2

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 Undergroundvu

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.
