I was going to wait to review this until Sunday, but as I’ve listened to it a fair few times over the last 24 hours I thought it was worth sharing. Window Sills by The Wind Whistles – They think they sound like the Violent Femmes and the Lemonheads. Other people compare them with The […]
I wrote a blog post a couple of years ago (maybe longer) on how I sometimes really like to listen to songs sung in languages I don’t understand. I think I’d rather not know what the lyrics mean than to hear them and be disappointed that they don’t do the music justice. I’ve been listening […]
http://teknostatik.co.uk/jamendo.php I’ll update this as and when I find new things. It’s a very quickly thrown together MySQL database with a PHP front end.
Due to weddings and holidays, I’ve got a 10 album + backlog of things to write about. But as I’m off on my travels tomorrow I thought I’d mention a couple of the albums I’ll be taking with me to keep me occupied at the airport and on the plane to Verona. Midnight Snow by […]

As promised, a few scribbles on things I’ve downloaded this week (mostly from Jamendo). All are rated on the Sound Opinions “Buy it/Burn it/Trash it” scale. Ze first cidi by Delph’ sans les pattes – Very French, but very beautiful, this is a style of music I like a lot but didn’t own much of […]
The new Girl Talk album is now available for somewhere between free and whatever you want to pay for it. I like this stuff, if only because my inner music geek likes to work out where all the samples come from.
Wilco are today’s featured article on the Wikipedia main page. I think this is the 21st century equivalent of New Order on Top of the Pops.
“The Slip” now available for free download. I’ve not heard all of it yet, but I thought NIN fans might need this album asap.
