Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.30)

Easing in gently with the woozy, blissed out post rock of The Sound of Rescue before kicking it up a notch with the classic Withnail sampling Ride tune and the funky sleaze of the Neon Neon track featuring Har Mar Superstar! Other highlights are the incredible Michael Yonkers Band track that I stumbled across on […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.29)

After the electronic squonk of Aphex Twin we ease into a short period of indie and Americana before The Icarus Line come storming in to fuck shit up! 🙂 A few classics follow before we hit the “Amber trio” and start to calm down before AWVFTS sets us adrift on a sea of dreamy tranquility […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.28)

Highlights of volume 28 include the stellar Unkle remix of Ian Brown’s already great track F.E.A.R., Dinosaur Jr’s cover of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven and Martin Rossiter’s (Gene) modest tune I Must Be Jesus from his solo record of 2012 The Defenestration of St Martin which is highly recommended. As always have a listen […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.27)

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.25)

As Bon Jovi once said, woaah we’re half way there! Volume number 25 takes us on another genre hopping trip, where the idea came from to include track 10 I’ve no idea, I don’t even remember ever downloading that, clearly one of those random dodgy downloads from the days of Soulseek! 1. Grandaddy – He’s […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.24)

A CD can hold 80 minutes of music, Volume 24 clocks in at 1hr20min, boom! Very pleasing! (this mix is slightly shorter because of the, er, mixing) Lots of other pleasures once play is pressed too, such as the wonderful opener from BoC, segueing rather nicely into the Cornelius track. An excellent Grumbling Fur track, […]
