Records I Like – The Best of 2019 (Part One)

So another year over and it was one of the best I can remember but given my memory of late that’s no strong ask. It started strongly in January and never looked back. It was a painstaking task compiling the Top 50 (well 51!) and for the past couple of weeks I have been adding tracks, removing tracks and adding them back in again.

Face Myself – A (Bonus!) Post-Punk Mix

Well that was a few enjoyable days in Budapest and this mix was on my player during the trip. Why another post-punk mix so soon you ask? Whilst putting together the Silent & Alone mix I had a number of tracks that did not fit in that mix, were left over or, in the case of one or two, forgotten. So, primarily for my commute, I put together another mix and thought I would share the end results as I think it works really well. Anyway enjoy!
