This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Eleven for Autumn September 22, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture, This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....
We start with perhaps the greatest Irish single ever… Discuss.
The Blades – Ghost of a Chance
Tame Impala – Apocalypse Dream
Some psychedelia from Australia. Perth to be exact. There you go.
mind.in.a.box – Control
An acquired taste, particularly the vocals but it works for me.
Bonobo – We Could Forever
Downtempo, trip-hop, chillout, whatever, a lot to like here.
Hal Hartley – Trust
A nice simple composition from the film director Hal Hartley and this from what I think is his best film.
Regular Fries - Africa Take Me Back
Take me back? Had they ever been? But a great track from a seriously underrated group.
Epic 45 – The Future is Blinding
Post-rock and something (well, quite a lot actually) of Disco Inferno about them.
Turbonegro - You Give Me Worms
New singer, new album, you either love this, or you hate it.
Dexy’s Midnight Runners - This is What She’s Like
Weirdly genius-like from a great and overtly political album.
Violent Femmes – Gone Daddy Gone
There was a time, circa Autumn 1984 when almost every student bedsit in Dublin was infested by at least one copy on tape or vinyl of Violent Femmes, released a year earlier. Which stopped me listening to them for years. My loss. But in anticipation of the return of the xylophone to the heart of popular(ish) music, here’s a track from that album.
New Order – Here to Stay
A bit like Hawkwind, there’s never not an excuse (for me) to listen to New Order. This is an oddity that was linked to the film 24 Hour Party People (which on a slight tangent I tend to think is vastly superior to Control), and never released on album (bar a singles collection) and it’s a fine song.
