Through the Jungle

it’s a new month – music mix time. i know things have been kind of slow on the blog lately, but i’m totally blaming it on the mass of public holidays we’ve had around here. been having too much fun offline during the holiday time – as i’m sure is…

17 it was a good day

It was a good day

mid-month music mix is here. there’s no rhyme or reason to this one, just a bunch of tunes i have been enjoying & playing to death lately. i decided not to over think it this time round. truth. It was a good day. playlist: Fleet Foxes – Lorelai The Wilderness…

Last of the country gentlemen

Josh T. Pearson promised himself he wouldn’t shave until he put out a second record. Now he hasn’t seen his face in “over ten fucking years” and doesn’t know what he’ll do with the length of ashen fodder he’s grown when his new album Last of the Country Gentlemen is…

R/MX

perhaps you have noticed a common thread that pulls together most of the mixes so far… there is usually always a remix in there somewhere. i simply love them, and experience a serious thrill every time i discover one of my favourite artists has been remixed –  especially when it’s…

I’d rather dance with you

thanks to lance for reminding me of this brilliant video. i was just reliving this song the other day, particularly these lyrics: Even if I could hear what you said I doubt my reply would be interesting for you to hear Because I haven’t read a single book all year…

Ships In The Night

hello again. you may have noticed things look pretty different around here… a redesign is almost as good as a holiday. almost. thanks for all those link recommendations, i have been making my way through them slowly but surely. i always appreciate it when people take the time to comment – it…

Formative Years

i have always been a music lover. i would often sit in the living room on my parents’ brown corduroy couches (yeah) listening to their old records and cds. when my older brothers weren’t around i’d sneak into their bedrooms and sample hits from the eighties (a-ha is still a…

15 get into it

get into it

the mid-month music mix is coming to you courtesy of a reader request, I get up quite early and start at the office well before anybody else arrives. Nothing better than having coffee and some loud music then, to start the day. So, my request, could you do a morning playlist? Something that…

14 there's something about us

there’s something about us

february music mix is here! as much as i kind of despise valentines day/month i have to admit i was thinking about it when putting this mix together. it’s not 100% love songs, in fact there are a number of songs on here that are distinctly un-love songs. you know,…

10 of 2010

i was pretty damn thrilled when i received a mail from steph who hosts a radio show at american university in washington dc. she kindly asked me to contribute a playlist to their programme (called “muzak to make your booty clap” – hehe) and my first thought was, “YES! an actual…

10 golden years

golden years

it’s december. wow. 2010 went by so quickly, yet i can barely remember january. this was my first post of 2010 where i declared that i would ‘go out and see more stuff’. i’m not sure i lived up to my resolution. i’d like to be hopeful in thinking that 2011…

got something for you

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.
