The Wednesday Mix

The Yearning has gone all ABBA on us as the new single Only When I’m Dancing demonstrates. The flip side Moonlight Fantasy errs on the side of disco. It all brings up images of wide lapels, flares, tassels, sparkling dresses and glitter balls. It’s very nice and fun too – check out the video. I wonder if they will move onto the 1980s next? When I’m Dancing is out now in digital formats via Elefant Records. Atlanta’s Bathe Alone has released six tracks since last September with new track In Deep being the latest. It’s an indie-rock track that tells … Continue reading The Wednesday Mix

Music For Gloves

Music For Gloves is a charity project by a group of independent record labels from Spain to help fight against coronavirus. All money raised will be used to buy medical gloves and masks for hospital workers which becomes more telling as I have just read cornonavirus death toll in Spain has now overtaken that of China. Currently there are 12 labels involved but I have only managed to listen to the contribution from Meritorio Records which features unreleased tracks from The Maureens, Girlatones and Holy Tunics. EDIT: I have also enjoyed the EP contributed by Pretty Olivia Records especially the … Continue reading Music For Gloves

Something For The Weekend? Three Albums

Literally straight from the opening bars of first track Els llacs which blends seamlessly into Incendi and then into current favourite Tornar A Casa it’s a dreamy journey throughout.

Alaska is an indiepop/dreampop album you can fully immerse yourself in and just let go. Divine. Alaska is available on vinyl … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three Albums

Capitol – Blondie

Canadian band Capitol used to be known as UK Cinema who, if you remember, released the excellent English Girls a couple of years ago. I am not sure what has bought on the name change but thankfully musically nothing has changed. Blondie still has that retro feel as misshapen vocals collide with twisted melodic guitars that ring out throughout. The clever lyrics remind me of the writing of Lloyd Cole, Matt Johnson and Edwyn Collins. It’s a promising first single from the forthcoming debut album Dream Noise, which will be jointly released on Meritorio Records (EU) and Kingfisher Bluez (US/CANADA) … Continue reading Capitol – Blondie
