Bardeux-When We Kiss

With news that the new Chromatics album is finally being released on Vinyl, I'd thought I'd share something not too dissimilar from Johnny Jewel's output. I first discovered this track on the most flawless blog on the planet Beat Electric (who have started repressing some seriously rare shit) a couple of years ago. My appreciation for this track was rekindled was by this excellent mix from Nick Acid Tree (who I have had the privilege to play with before) on the excellent Emotional Pop website that was shared recently. It was the only track I recognised as Nick's mixes are always sort of the shit that you want, that you don't have and can probably never find! A serious digger.

Girls Against Boys-She's Lost Control

Remember seeing this belter of a cover version on Alternative Nation back in the mid 90s. What a show that was. Who even watches MTV anymore? After the shite of Oasis, I was at pains to delve into Mancunian music too much and relied heavily instead on underground and not so underground alternative music from the other side of the pond. A cover version that delivers.

It suddenly morning when you listen to this track. The last ten hours of your life are suddenly a distant memory, and all that's left is you.

Ace boogie shuffle from 2008. The label that released this gem, Thriller (an offshoot from Actress's label) was only short lived which was a shame, as this was a promising start.

Headphones-Gas and Matches

David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) has been a steady fave of mine for well over a decade. Pleasingly his back catalogue is getting remastered and repressed on vinyl. His short-loved electronic project 'Headphones' is an album I return to often. Opener 'Gas & Matches' opens the door of cynism and bleakness with a bloody tale of revenge. Fucking people over comes back to haunt you eventually.
