Records I Like Best of 2020 Part Three

Just some rambling notes……. I have never compiled as many best-of mixes as I have done this year. Given that I have been based at home since the middle of February and listened to tons of music I should not really be surprised. This has meant a record (no pun intended) number of blog posts in 2020, double the number of views and distinct visitors … Continue reading Records I Like Best of 2020 Part Three

Records I Like Best of 2020 Part Two

The second part of Records I Like Best of 2020. To be honest I have listened to so much stuff this year that a third volume is more than likely so the words I had prepared for this volume will most probably appear when that’s published. As ever enjoy the mix. Full tracklisting: Nah… Perfect Game (Taken from the single Perfect Game) The Shop Window … Continue reading Records I Like Best of 2020 Part Two

Records I Like Best of 2020 Part One

So it’s that time of year again where I start assessing what I have listened to this year. This first mix is pretty diverse and reflects that working from home since mid-February has had an impact on my listening habits expanding far outside of this blog’s self-imposed remit.

So it’s another Saturday after a Bandcamp Friday post so here is a 10 track “mixtape” of some of the tunes I picked up featuring indiepop, post-punk, synthpop, krautrock and garage. I picked up plenty more, so much so that PayPal thought they were fraudulent transactions.

Even on a Sunday. Factice Factory – Weimar (Facebook … Continue reading Isolation…..
