[Track Of The Day: Night Manager “Ghost”]

  You know what the shitty end of the running-your-own-thing-by-one’s-lonesome stick is? On brilliantly sunny days like this, you still have to fucking stay in and work. And by work, we actually mean it this time, as we’ve been recently been informed that “parking yourself on Facebook all day doesn’t count as work” – which … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Meursault “Flittin'”]

  Speedy-speedy-cha-cha-real-smooth-now-y’all type post. Seems like we haven’t just blasted one of these out for quite some time now, which is surprising given the amount of good shit we’ve had to get on with. Although that’s probably not really the case. Anyway, Edinburgh’s Meursault is what we wanna chat to you about. There’s about, like, … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Shuga “The Darkness”]

  Today may well have represented the end of our self-inflicted but duly-warranted sense of scepticism that we’ve fine-tuned as of late. The beginning involved waking up for the first time in months not REM-sleep deprived and/or hungover, in fact revitalised for once in what feels like a lifetime of almost sustained anaemia (we say … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Entertainment “Shine”]

  Certain bands are not easy to find on t’interweb. Keeping track of some of those bands is even harder. See, it’s nigh on impossible to keep track of most things when you’re running your own shop. Right now, for example, we’re buried in invoices, contracts pertaining to a certain producer-buddy of ours, purchase orders … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Playlounge “Revolution Summer”]

  Off the cuff, we’re finding it very hard indeed to find something about Playlounge that we don’t approve of. Let’s disseminate. Analyse. Break it down for ya. The best place to start, as always, is the music. Like a bat of of hell, Revolution Summer does more for us in under a minute-and-a-half than … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Battleships “In Retrospect”]

  We sort of promised ourselves we wouldn’t do any “work” this weekend, in light of us reaching the near-exhaustion point round about Thursday this week just gone (truthfully, we nearly fell asleep in one of those big-boy label meetings that you can often find us attempting to be so charmingly befuddled in) having acheived … Continue reading

[Second Stab: Drenge “Dogmeat” and Story Books “Peregrine”]

  The theme of this week for us, both personally and professionally, has been to face facts (or as Daddy Killing Moon has just put it to us, given that we’re lounging around our parent’s living room right now having not spent much quality time with the folks recently through absolutely no fault of our … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Secret Son “Jenny”]

  So we and Draper have been having a rather insightful conversation on the ol’ Skypey this evening – whilst he’s not remixing the crap out of some silly thing, and we’re not answering the phone or emails and trying to get on with our basic needs like eating if we’re lucky – and our … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: Eliza And The Bear “Brother’s Boat”]

  We have exactly 20 minutes to write, format, source pictures and embed codes for and, ultimately, flounder about this here blog post. Why on earth are we feeling so pressured at this point in the evening? Well, several reasons, seeing as you asked. No, it’s cool, we’ve got time. We’ve been in meetings non-stop … Continue reading

[Track Of The Day: History Of The Trade “One Arm’s Length”]

  There’s actually something quite endearing about living a life of struggle. Having just written that, we realise that there probably isn’t in fact for a lot of people, but of course we’re talking about us, so bear with. To put this in context, say you had worked in a job that on paper (i.e. … Continue reading
