It finally happened .... and a day early to boot! Not given it a proper listen through yet but I do like 'Lotus Flower' and the accompanying video . Also in my news, long-time friend of the blog Hostage sent over his new track and it kicks and bumps in all the right places.... then decides to slap you in the face with its huge clubby balls. Dope! Finally, just finished watching Spaced again and this Lemon Jelly song rounds off what is probably one of my favourite TV programs ever. DANCE [...]
RANT ALERT ! Don't you find it annoying when bands blatantly rip off other bands? I've been noticing it a lot lately when listening to 6music . Now I don't mean "taking inspiration from and going their own way" - I mean slap-you-in-the-chops rip-off. Can't remember what the band were called but if they'd sounded any more like Animal Collective I'd have phoned up to make sure they hadn't got the track name wrong. RANT OO'ER ! There's only 1 Panda Bear thankfuck, and his new [...]

So as 2010 winds to a close (not before Xmas/my birthday!!) and 2011 comes into view it's time for the old blogaroo to name the best albums of the year. Here goes. 13. Massive Attack - Heligoland This one kinda came out of left field for me. Paid absolutely fuck all attention to it around the release date and it probably would've slid under the rug were it not for True Blood using one of the songs from it ('Paradise Circus') in a key scene . I had to [...]

Forgot to post this amazing James Blake cover a while back and the radio keeps giving me gentle reminders - so this is for all you who haven't heard a future genius-in-the-making.

What I like about Hostage is that he tries his hand at different styles and doesn't just sit in his comfort zone. Case in point is 'Sweet Sweet Riddim' a Prodigy-style rave-a-thon.
