Wow. Many childhood memories. Much shouting.

Got to love a track with a great bassline. Especially one that finishes with what feels a bit like an aural glimpse of hell. It’s rare those things are so masterfully combined for some reason.

In my opinion, Grace Mitchell didn’t shine on last year’s soundtrack to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty covering Hall and Oates’s Maneater, but the track she put out on Soundcloud last week, Your Design is interesting, but Broken Over You is the one I keep coming back to. I love the simplicity of the chorus, the drums towards the end, but overall just the heartwrenching, but reticent lyrics. It’ll be interesting to see what more she has to offer in the future.

Great track by Kindness. Love the way the beat comes in, love the sax riff. Awesome bass dancing all over the top of it.

Enjoying the FKA Twigs album on my day off. Hard to believe it’s a debut.

Listening through Pitchfork’s top 200 songs of 2010-2014 has prompted me to listen to the majestic Dancing On My Own by Robyn again, and that’s no bad thing.

Love the vocals on this, and I’m a sucker for a bass solo.
