Records I Like Mix June 2020

If I said to myself in 1988 I would be compiling a “mixtape” in 2020 featuring The Flatmates, The Wolfhounds, Wendy Pickles from The Popguns and ex Popgun/Weddoes drummer Shaun Charman I would have said I was a bit bonkers. Well, 32 years later it seems I am bonkers after all as they all feature on this months mix which features tracks covering indie-pop, jangle-pop, shoegaze and alt-rock. It’s nice to see kosmische (“Krautrock”) creeping into indie and dream pop too. Enjoy! Full Tracklisting and details: The Flatmates – If You Love Me Let Me Know Taken from the new … Continue reading Records I Like Mix June 2020

Records I Like Mix May 2020

The latest mix featuring tracks released in the past month or so. Enjoy! Tracklisting: Die Zärtlichkeit – Chaos That track, titled Chaos, opens the EP and it’s a vintage sounding indie/jangle pop song which gets things off to a fine start. No Suits in Miami – What We Have Strong female vocals soar above the guitars which, depending on your viewpoint, are either influenced by 1981 Glasgow or 1988 Bristol. Dreams of Empire – Broken Keys I am not sure if I have ever heard a song that references both the Sparks and Plastic Bertrand before but Broken Dreams does … Continue reading Records I Like Mix May 2020

Records I Like Mix April 2020 #1

Well, I think March musically was one of the busiest months for a while for obvious reasons. I have listened too more than usual. The Bandcamp revenue waiving fundraiser saw plenty of additions to my collection too. So much so that April’s Mix is spread over two parts. Here is part one. Enjoy! Full Tracklisting Ferri-Chrome – Glad To See You Songs like Asteroid and Glad to See You are two of the finest songs I have heard this side of lock down Marcos y Molduras – Un Nuevo Ano Starting off gently it features harmonious boy/girl vocals and these … Continue reading Records I Like Mix April 2020 #1

Records I Like Mix March 2020

Another mix collating tracks released in the past month or so. Lots to listen too here (hear?). Full tracklisting: The Tubs – I Don’t Know How It Works The debut single from another offshoot from Joanna Gruesome. The Empty Shell – You Can’t Hide The same is true for You Can’t Hide which gives nods towards the likes of The Wake and The Sea Urchins both musically and lyrically. Pop at Summer – Sunny Day Parade With a band name like Pop At Summer and a song title of Sunny Day Parade I will guess most people will fathom how … Continue reading Records I Like Mix March 2020

Records I Like Mix February 2020

Well a bit later than usual but finally here is the mix for February 2020 featuring tracks released in the past month or so – some a bit longer. 60 minutes of listening pleasure! Details and full tracklisting: Golden Teardrops – I Won’t Be Fooled Again Is that a bit of floor stompin’ northern soul I can hear creeping into to their brand of baroque/sunshine pop? I think it is you know! The Lousy Pop Group – Days It’s a gentle, wistful track that harks back to 1980s indiepop/twee and which fades away far too soon. Wild Nothing – Blue … Continue reading Records I Like Mix February 2020
