Marcos Valle – Estrelar

This killer piece of Brazilian Boogie from Marcos Valle holds the much-coveted accolade of my favourite record this week. If only his mother knew.  She’d be mighty proud. By all accounts, Marcos had a long and varied music career, working his way through pretty much every genre of Brazilian music, and on to psychedelic rock…

The The – GIANT

What an appropriate name for a record. I was reminded of this gem on Facebook recently when the ever generous Rob J had another of his infamous late-night youtube musical spam-fests where he divulges record after record of pretty reliably awesome music.

Harmony Cats’ Theme is one of their earlier recordings and…

Disclosure – Flow

Yeah so I know Disclosure are EVERYWHERE right now, but damn, they deserve to be. These youngsters are literally dripping in talent (how a pair of teenage brothers can make their shit sound this good is beyond me). For those of you who are even slower off the mark than me, these two are producing some…

Glitterball @ Secret Garden Party 2012

Good day! Due to a CIA level court injunction, we’ve had to stay relatively schtum about this until now – but finally we can reveal that we’re playing at Secret Garden Party this year! We’ll be joined by Mr. Patrick Pringle – original Glitterball party cog and purveyor of fine Bavarian humming funk – at the Belvadere tent by…
