THAT FUZZY FEELING: CRACKPOT – ROBOPOTAMUS.
This is taken from an excellent album by Melbourne based act Crackpot. It was given to me by a very nice man at my regular gig at The Player in Soho. I listened to it all the way through the next morning and chose this tune as tune of the week. It’s quirky, alt.poppy downtempo, sort of new and familiar at the same time.
SEPALCURE – LOVE PRESSURE REMIXES
Remixes of one of my favourite Sepalcure tracks coming soon on the ever-reliable Hotflush record label with takes from XI, Falty DL, Jimmy Edgar, Daedelus and Lando Kal.
A STRANGE JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD OF THE BLUE MOON
a couple of weeks ago I played on a boat in Greece. ONe of the requirements was music for the full moon. Naively I imagined everyone standing around admiring the sea and the moon as we cruised across the silvery Aegean. Of course, they actually wanted party music, but I did do some research into tunes with moon in the title. Some of them feature in this week’s show.
Wings – C Moon – Apple
Nat King Cole – Blue Moon – Capitol
Tom Waits – I’ll Shoot The Moon – Alka-Seltzer
Lightnin’ Hopkins – Shining Moon – RST Records
Chet Baker – Moon Love – Capitol
