Midweek Madness, again!
I took a break for a few days. Staff party plus a few lovely spacey days chilling out, making breakfast for peoples, charity shopping, going for pints. Awful good fun.
Here are a few gems I picked up over the past few days!
David Byrne (Talking Heads, loads of other bands) and Fatboy Slim are collaborating! They're making a concept album about former first lady of the Phillipines, Imelda Marcos and her relationship with a servant from childhood. Good lord. It's due out next month, and here's a track from it featuring Santigold
David Byrne & Fatboy Slim - Please Don't (ft. Santigold)
Another concept album, this time from Titus Andronicus. They're a good old rockin' band that I listened to for the first time today!
Titus Andronicus - Forever
Sweet tune from Ali Love, I really liked his last single Diminishing Returns, this one's another nice dancey number.
Ali Love - Love Harder
More collaborations! This time from the King of Collaborations and generally interesting music Damon Albarn! Fresh from reviving one of the best bands in the world for a summer of frolicking around festivals he's back with more Gorillaz! Damon's virtual friends return with their third album, Plastic Beach, on March 8th. The guestlist reads like a who's who of awesome dudes! Barry Gibb, Mos Def, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack, De La Soul and Lou Reed. This one features Mos and Bobby!
Gorillaz - Stylo
Finally, funnily enough I got up this morning and put on Magnetic Fields wonderful 2008 release Distortion. Today I found out they're due to release another, Reality will be out on the 26th of this month
Magnetic Fields - You Must Be Out Of Your Mind
Here's my favourite song from Hot Chip's new album One Life Stand. It's out Feb 8th
Hot Chip - I Feel Better
