Album of the year so far.......

Is this: "Twenty Three" by Sukpatch. (Follow links for Myspace page, videos etc)
There's a gorgeous lazy psychedelic feel to it, a warm, buzzing melancholia.....parts remind me of The Heliosequence (who I raved about on this blog a long, long time ago) or a spectaclularly stoned Meat Puppets. If you like what you hear on the myspace page, the album is on itunes. It's the sound of summer 2006, enjoy.

Full of food........

Of Eton mess, to be absolutely precise.
A nice Sunday today...As ever, full of sound ("Some Justice" by Urban Shakedown), taste (Roast Chicken and the above pudding) and that Sunday siesta that means so much to me. I'm sure I was a sloth in a previous life;or at the very least, some sort of dormouse. The rain is now tapping gently on the roof of the conservatory (a few hours ago it was a deluge) and the TV is bibbling to itself in the background. The Pinot Noir is empty, the fire is down to its embers, the rose incense cones are dust in the hearth, the cat is sound asleep on it's blanket. I have a glass of Strega to soothe my soul and a copy of this upstairs to lull me to sleep. I hope your weekend brought similar joys. I'll bid you goodnight.

Life goes on....

But i've got to say, that news about Martin has made me so very very miserable. I'll miss his smile, his honesty and his presence in so many ways.
Anyway.....Zutons last night at KCLSU, great venue (if a little smoky) and a great night out.
You know, i've been doing this blog for AGES now and i've never ever posted any tunes up, so I thought I should rectify things. So, here's Bonjay covering "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs over the South Rakkas Crew's "Bionic Ras" riddim. Wonderful. Enjoy.
