Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.33)

Another nicely varied collection of tracks on Volume 33. The New Pornos, Röyksopp and Haiku Salut bring the pop. Dawn of the Replicants, Tapes ’n’ Tapes, dEUS, Jello Biafra and Rev Horton Heat bring us the (slight) weirdness. Biffy, Clutch, Six by Seven, Meatbodies and The Veils bring the rock. Various other beauties fill up […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.32)

A bit of classic goth kicks off Volume 32, followed by some mathy goodness from Youthmovies (shame we never saw another album from them) and Adebisi Shank. There are a couple of good if a little odd cover versions later on the mix, Ministry doing a quite restrained cover of Dylan’s Lay Lady Lay and […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.31)

We resume after the end of year Best Of list season with Volume 31. Massive Attack’s Three is track three, I’m bloody hilarious me. Some very pleasant indie pop leads us to the beautiful Songs: Ohia and the majestic Built To Spill! We get a little dirtier and raucous towards the end, with me possibly […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.30)

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)

Some crackers on Volume 27, Nick Cave’s beautiful track off my favourite Bad Seeds album Henry’s Dream, the oddly titled but beautiful Catherine Wheel tune, one of my favourite Tindersticks songs, the Alkaline Trio track that never fails to make me want to jump around the room madly, and the epic 12 minute motorik synth […]
