Playlist 52

Another week, another set of great tunes. This weeks featured artist is the awesome Carsick Cars from Beijing. Their debut album is totally brilliant but I get the impression it might be a bit tricky to track down. Other highlights this week include a track from the new These New Puritans ep, a track from the new and suprisingly good Chumbawamba album and a couple of oldies from Babes In Toyland and the mighty Half Man Half Biscuit a new album from whom must be due soon. You might have noticed the link at the top of this page to the new Burning World Record Shop where you can purchase most of the records included in these playlists and please do use the shop and support new music and this site. The shop is basically affiliated through Amazon so it's as safe as houses. Burning World does get a tiny percentage of any sales which is just as well because webspace and hardrives don't grow on trees and I am far from rich so your support is always appreciated.
Also please use the forum to talk about stuff and let us know if there is anything you want to see on the site. I have been asked to post some old Peel Sessions on here since The Perfumed Garden is no longer alive so again if there are any in particular you want to hear just pop onto the forum and let us know.

Anyway, on with the tunes......

1. Baltic Fleet - 3 Dollar Dress (Blow Up) Taken from the bands self titled debut album.
2. Mount Eerie - Domesticated Dog (P.W. Elverum & Sun) Taken from the 10″ album “Black Wooden Ceiling Opening”
3. Carsick Cars - Kindliness (Maybe Mars) First track from this weeks featured artist. Carsick Cars are one of my favorite bands at the moment for sure and their debut album makes one hell of a sound. The first time I heard it I was reminded of Sonic Youth at their best, but this lot are even better than that. I’m not sure if this is a proper release or not but you really must track one down.
4. Tatact - W.U.W.H. (Zanzatraxx) 12″ Vinyl.

Another track from the fine “Colorloss Record” e.p.
