DRUNKEN GNOME

December 30, 2009

Swedish label Despotz sent me an email with some nice tracks. The nicest of which was a song by singer Titiyo. A massive confrontation with enormous, dark and epic soundscapes. Taken from the album Hidden that has just been released in Europe.

MP3 Titiyo – Drunken Gnome

FRANKIE CRISP

December 27, 2009

After The Beatles called it quits in 1970, all of the members went on to do solo work. Aside from maybe Lennon´s Imagine album, Harrison´s double effort All Things Must Pass is probably the most satisfying. I recently discovered this album, and in my yuletide joy I´de like to share my favorite track with you.

MP3 George Harrison – Ballade of Frankie Crisp (Let it Roll)

RIDING HOOD

December 13, 2009

Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs´ 1966 hit “Lil´Red Riding hood” didn´t set the world on fire, but it´s a nice silly song that refuses to die.

MP3 Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs – Lil´Red Riding Hood

SENSUALITY

December 9, 2009

Another contribution from Norway´s musical equivalent to Al Pacino, namely Stanley Steel. This is a dance floor track with all the trimmings, based on a track (by the same name) by The Isley Brothers.

MP3 Stanley Steel – Sensuality

METRONOME

December 2, 2009

Cousin Cole is, by now, no stranger to the readers of this blog. Nice as he is, he sent over this four minute preview of an remix he did of late 70´s punk band Manicured Noise.

“Hey guys
Here’s my latest remix, coming out Monday on Caroline True records. Manicured Noise was a late 70s post-punk band from Manchester — I was asked to remix their song “Metronome” for a remix EP along with mixes from Pocketknife, Jon Da Silva (resident at the legendary Hacienda club in the 80s/90s), and Wedderkopp + Taylor.

I took the song on a pretty different direction from the original (big sax!) and it has gotten a great response with all kinds of crowds as I’ve been playing it out over the past few months — probably the biggest response of anything I’ve done recently.

The label gave me a short edit to send out to blogs, so feel free to post this. It’s missing the second half of the track (with the big breakdown), but it’s a good bitrate.”
