The week after next will see our best of 2007 playlist go live. I must admit I'm having a bit of a headache compiling this. I just can't seem to get the list below 52 tracks. Thanks to all those who have been in touch with suggestions for the list, as many of your selections as possible will be on there. If you have any particular tracks which you believe should be on this playlist then please get in touch before Friday 21st December and I'll try and include as many as possible.
On with the tunes....
1. The Shackeltons - Tremble (Loveless) Taken from the bands self titled debut album which should be released at the end of January. I think you’ll be hearing a lot more from this lot on these playlists in the future.
2. Atlas Sound - A Ghost Story (Kranky) Taken from the album “Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel” which I’m led to believe will be in the shops on February 19th.
3. Reverend & The Makers - Open Your Window (Club Mix) (Wall Of Sound) I must confess I’ve never been that impressed by the works of Reverend & The Makers but I do rather like this mix of their current single which can be found on the CD version. Buy Here
4. These New Puritans - Swords Of Truth (Angular) First offering from this weeks featured album. Following on from their brilliant “Colours/Numbers” single a couple of months ago the Southend-On-Sea four piece are finally ready to unleash their debut album “Beat Pyramid” on a suspecting world on the 28th January. Two more tracks before the end of the playlist. Buy Here.
5. No Name On The Bullet - Now I Warn You (Self-Released) I’m really into these guys at the moment. This comes from their latest offering the “Physician EP”. I’ve also managed to track down their earlier “John Gant” ep which is equally brilliant and if I remember I’ll include a track in next weeks playlist.
6. The Agony Scene - Preditation (Century Media) Taken from the album “Get Damned”.
7. Fuck Buttons - Colours Move (Download) Current favorites in my house. Can’t wait for some new stuff.
8. Chris T-T - In The Dressing Room (Xtra Mile) One of the extra tracks on the current “This Gun Is Not A Gun” ep. For some reason I could have sworn I had already played you the title track in a previous program but scanning back through previous tracklistings this appears not to be the case so memory permitting I’ll stick it in next weeks program. Buy Here
9. Rebekah Higgs - Parables (Outside Music) Taken from the cunningly titled album “Rebekah Higgs”. Buy Here
10. Tad - Jack Pepsi (Sub Pop) Classic 7″ single.
11. Shady Bard - Penguins (Static Caraven) Taken from the album “From The Ground Up”. Buy Here
12. These New Puritans - 4 Pounds (Angular) Second track from this weeks featured album “Beat Pyramid”. Out 28th January. Buy Here
13. We Are Terrorists - Ground Zero
14. Boxcutter - J Dub (Planet Mu) Taken from the album Glyphic. Buy Here
15. Cilvaringz - Death To America
16. Kiss Kiss - Iris & Eye (Eyeball) Taken from the album “Reality Vs The Optimist”. Buy Here
17. Kitchens Of Distinction - Quick As Rainbows (One Little Indian) Kitchens Of Distiction are one of the most underrated bands ever. Their 1990 album "Strange Free World" still sound excellent today and if you have never heard this band I would recommend you start here. Buy Here.
18. These New Puritans - Mkk3 (Angular) Final track from this weeks featured album. “Beat Pyramid” will be released on 28th January. Buy Here.
