Teleman – Cristina

November 26, 2012 § Leave a comment


Released on Moshi Moshi 13/1/2013 (link)

#Monday. Ever succumb to the suspicion that all you’re hearing are bad songwriters being passed off as good and mediocre pop songs with lazy production being touted as classic examples of their genre? It seems without realising it that we’ve allowed a certain amount of musical faith to ebb in recent days. The debut from Teleman might not shake the funk from us completely, but it’s certainly got some strong medicinal properties that we encourage you to try out if you are suffering from any similar maladies.

Family Of The Year – St. Croix (Hooray for Earth Mix)

November 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

Taken from the ‘St. Croix EP’
Out now on tinyOGRE (iTunes)

Stan says: #Monday. This remix has been enticing our eardrums for a while now but it’s never felt quite as appropriate to us as it does this morning. Something to do with a lack of sleep over the weekend and an entirely predictable but growing desire to go on a very slow moving holiday in the Caribbean as soon as possible perhaps. At the time of going to press you can still grab a free download (on sign up) of the original version of ‘St. Croix’ from the Family Of The Year website here and Rolling Stone are hosting an MP3 version of the remix here.

Afghan Whigs – Crazy

October 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

Taken from the album ‘1965’
Buy on iTunes here

Stan says: #Friday. #Songsthatcouldhavebeenhits. There’s been a long held view around these parts that if music consumption were half way to logical then this Afghan Whigs tune could have been half way to a classic by now and not just another for Greg Dulli enthusiasts to enjoy in their private time.
