The show: Some might call it lazy DJing…

…but Fraserhead prefers to think of it as giving the music some room and letting it breathe. WTF? That’s right, The Herb Whisperer is away today so Fraserhead is flying solo. Expect sparse voice breaks, minimal mixing, lots of triple plays, and maybe some Kenny Loggins.

Huge thanks to regular listener Greg Dodds for tipping us off about TRAAMS. Could happily leave this on repeat for the w-h-o-l-e show. But won’t. Have a listen below though…

PS: Wouldn’t “Kenny Login” be a fantastic DJ name especially if they specialised in 8-Bit Punk? UPDATE: Damn. Someone thought of it already.

The show: Shall we go a little retro?

If you need some fresh ideas and fresh music allow us to recommend freaky French label Circus Company. Free mixes and podcasts are available from their Soundcloud page or podcasts page. Fill your boots. Or iPod. Or harddrive. Or whatever.

The Mole (Circus Company Radio) mix from December 2011 is a real treat. Lots of old Motown soul and funk and a few surprises. Very classy. Got me digging out Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell records at home. And if you like those retro soul, funk, and electro sounds then you can’t go too wrong plundering Milk Crate Breaks.

The show: We witnessed the fitness

Roots Manuva at The Bedford, Moorhouse Avenue, Christchurch.

Roots Manuva at The Bedford, Moorhouse Avenue, last night.

Pssst… The Herb Whisperer recommends buying the February 2012 issue of Mojo. The covermount CD is New Order’s 1983 masterpiece “Power, Corruption & Lies” covered, Blue Monday revisited, and  bonus tracks. Could have been a recipe for a disaster but you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Have a sneak preview of the tracks here.

Ed Muzik “A Song Falls in the Woods”

In case you missed it here’s the new video for Ed Muzik’s “A Song Falls In The Woods”.

Bit gutted because we were meant to be in the “audience” scene and finally get our 15 seconds of fame.

But we blew it.

Sorry Ed for not returning your calls. We weren’t listening. But your video is probably better for it.
