It has been a while since I have shared some music!
Frank Sinatra's 1956 Lp 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers' is a album filled with one great tune after an other. I have played it over the years and never tire of it. A true sign of a classic album.
Frank Sinatra- 'You make me feel so young':
You am I- the Lp 'Hourly Daily' is a relatively modern classic album and has been re-released recently to celebrate 20 years since You am I's debut Lp 'Sound as Ever', was originally released.
A track off the Hourly Daily Lp, which has a swear word in it, is this simple and honest track 'Please don't ask me to smile'.
You am I-'Please don't ask me to smile'
This is a group I want to like, but haven't really heard anything that has grabbed me... I don't mind this new tune though.
Fuck Buttons- 'The Red Wing'
I like this track off the Pet Shop boy's new Dance Album, 'electric'. I do have to admit,, that tt is sometimes on the ipod, as I dance/walk my way to work.
Pet Shop Boys- 'Vocal'
I read a bit of hype about the new Boards of Canada Lp, a "return to form", Blah, blah, blah.. who would have thought they were right? It is great and I have it on vinyl.
Boards of Canada- 'Reach for the Dead'
A couple of Aussie groups/artists in Triple J's 'like a version, covering overseas tracks.
I love San Cisco, I think they sound great and yes i am still meaning to buy their debut album. I actually prefer their cover of Daft Punks 'Get lucky', to the original. Maybe fast forward to the 1:13 mark, to miss all the chat
San Cisco: 'Get Lucky'
Ash Grunwald and Andy and Scott from The Living End are joined by Urthboy to cover 'Feel Good Inc' by Gorillaz. Again, maybe fast forward to the 1:16 mark, to miss all the chat:
Only because this clip has some wonderful blue lighting!
Cold war kids: 'Lost that easy'
