The Show: Ruff, ruff goes the beagle to the terrier…

One of those shows where we somehow got the gentle ambient field recordings of birds, rainfall, running water and accompanying beats (thank you HAAST – HĀWEA, SODA LITE, THOMAS L. BIGELOW, MASAHIRO TAKAHASHI and OV PAIN) to somehow co-exist with the more crunchier numbers (looking at you HAVENS and BLACK DRESSES). Plus all sorts of other things in between (like the welcome returns of KITTIN, THE HACKER and DESTROYER). #somuchgoodmusicnotenoughtimeforitall

And on with the show…

The Show: Cleanin’ out our closet

In the absence of any spare time during the holiday season to listen to our usual quota of new tunes, we’ve had to re-examine the songs that didn’t make the playlist cut first time around.

Good job too. How could we have originally overlooked Eris Drew’s attempt to cram 30+ years of classic dance music loops, beats, breaks and samples into one album? Or the post-punk crunch of M(h)aol? Or Lucy Duncombe’s soaring, sweeping voice? Or… or… or…
