Mid-summer music

July 9th, 2010

So I realised I haven’t written anything for four whole gosh-darn months, no excuses – although there are many reasons: impending childbirth, self-employment, idleness, etc – and even this is going to be a flippin’ link to some music!

Well that’s the way I’m rolling right now, and whilst I’ve been to the Lakes, Snowdonia and Cornwall this year, the travel writing has taken a back seat to listening to new music via the many excellent resources out there now giving away tracks. These include the links below, and I recommend they be checked out, signed up to, followed, stalked, maimed then devoured in your own time:

I’ve “done” a compilation loosely based around the summer. I say loosely as it’s stuff I’ve been listening to since May so it should probably be called “Rob’s Summer Tunes 2010” and released on K-Tel, but while I wait for confirmation of a release date for that, feel free to download the zippedy-doo file and prick up yr ears, etc and so on.


  1. Sleigh Bells – “Tell ‘Em”
  2. School Of Seven Bells – “Babelonia”
  3. The Drums – “Let’s Go Surfing (The Raveonettes Remix)”
  4. Cate Le Bon – “Shoeing The Bones”
  5. Violens – “Acid Reign”
  6. !!! – “AM/FM”
  7. Stornoway – “Here Comes the Blackout…!”
  8. Craft Spells – “The Fog Rose High”
  9. Crystal Castles – “Celestica (Thurston Moore Remix)”
  10. Stars – “We Don’t Want Your Body”
  11. HEALTH – “Die Slow (Tobacco Remix)”
  12. The Whigs – “Dying”
  13. Philip Selway – “By Some Miracle”
  14. School of Seven Bells – “Half Asleep (Lusine Remix)”
  15. Underworld – “Scribble”

This is the link to the file (it’s massive – 116mb, but worth it)

    Oh my gosh……what a nice music list!!! I mostly love Violens – “Acid Reign”. I didn’t find the song in youtube. Would you mind as possible just updating the download links. Best wishes….
