Playlist 55

Here we go then another twenty of the best. I really don't feel like talking today because my stomach feels like it's got a whole army of badgers bouncing around in it. I wonder if it might have something to do with the brown sauce I put on my fish & chips the oher day which was best before sometime in 2004.
Anyway enjoy the tunes and don't forget to pop over to the
forum for a natter.

1. Distimia - Never Again (Wicked Area) Taken from the e.p. “Breakcore Hates Girls”.
2. Kim Gordon & Thurston Moore - Come Across (?)
3. Sarandon - The Completists Library (Slumberland)
This little gem comes from the new Sarandon album “Kill Twee Pop” which is utterly fantastic and will be avaliable from 28th April. Buy Here
4. 65daysofstatic - Dance Parties (Mechanised) Taken from the Sheffield bands new E.P. “The Distant & Mechanical Sound Of Eastern European Dance Parties” which will be released through Monotreme on 7th April. Buy Here
5. The Fall - 50 Year Old Man (Castle) The new album “Imperial Wax Solvent” hits the shops on 28th April and once again we can worship at the alter of Mark E. Smith. I think it’s a better record than last years “Reformation” album which itself was no slouch. This track is definitely one of the highlights of the new record and sees Smith at his lyrical best. Buy Here
6. Mr King - Never Do You That (Promo)
7. Jakes - Titan (H.E.N.C.H) 12″ vinyl.
Buy Here
8. Shit & Shine - Am I A Nice Guy (Southern) Taken from the superb new album “Cherry”. Out 14th April. Buy Here
9. Air Waves - Lightning (Catbird) Taken from the Brooklyn bands new five track e.p. Buy Here
10. My Disco - An Even Sun (Stomp) Produced by the legendary Steve Albini this record has some of the best guitar sounds you’ll hear this year and this track is particularly monsterous. It comes from the Melbourne bands second album “Paradise” which seems to have taken up residence on my i-pod. I read a review somewhere which said that this album is quite minimal compared with the first. If that’s the case I really will make an effort to track that elusive debut down. Buy Here
11. Emperor - My Lady (Promo)
12. Algernon Cadwallader - Motivational Song ()
Taken from the album “Some Kind Of Cadwallader”. There seems to be some kind of buzz about this band at moment....oh's just my tinitus playing up again.
13. Chapterhouse - Pearl (Dedicated) Another request from Mr Vincent. It’s always good to hear this record again. The album “Whirlpool” was re-issued in 2006 through Cherry Red with quite a few extra tracks. The early Chapterhouse stuff really was quite special but I just wish they had split up after the first album instead of spending the next few years churning out what I though was sub-standard material. I think sometimes bands just can’t see when it’s time to call it a day and do something different. I mean just look at The Charlatans to take one example. Back in 1990 they were the dogs gonads. Eighteen years later they’re still at it and their new album is so stale it makes the bread in my cupboard look edible.
14. Shameboy - Heartcore (DIM Remix) (541) Another beautifully manufactured slab of vinyl.
15. Revolution - Who Do You Think You Are (Make Moves Studio) Taken from the album “Fyah Everywhere”. Nice sleeve!
16. Lovvers - Laughing Man (Jonson Family) Latest 7″ single from the mighty Lovvers. I think this might have been around for a while but I’ve only just got a copy of it, or to be more precise Vince has only just got a copy for me. I’m looking forward to seeing these later in the month when they will be supporting Los Campesinos! in Bradford. I hope Lovvers have a t-shirts for sale because my whole body yearns to be decorated with Lovvers. I think it was Vince who was wondering if there’s going to be a Lovvers album. I kind of hope not really because I’d prefer them to keep on releasing 7″ ep’s instead, still no-one ever listens to me so I expect the album will be just around the corner.
17. Why? - Close To Me (?) Yes it is that one…..
18. The Orb - God Less America/Gorgeous (Kompact) This comes from a 12″ issued last year on which you get The Orb on one side and The Rice Twins on the other. Somehow I managed to miss it at the time but better late than never.
19. Our Sleepless Forest - White Bird (Resonant) Taken from the bands self-titled debut album. Out 28th April. Buy Here
20. Tokyo Police Club - Nursey Academy (Memphis Industries) Taken from the album “Elephant Shell” which is growing on me in quite a big way. Out 5th May. Buy Here FILE REMOVED
