August/July "PottaCast"

Side A (right click, "save as...")
Side B (right click, "save as...")

A delayed missive, one from 'up the flue' as it were, dug out and sieved from my summer listening. It includes some traditional 'summer faves' like carnival choices Royal Rasses and Tempo 70, less traditionally summery old faves like Rapeman's cover of ZZ Tops "Just Got Paid" , the House of Love and a lot of new stuff as well, M.I.A, Hull's Thief, the slinky girl funk of Belleruche, Stars, Bullion's 'dillaed' take on pet sounds and Department of Eagles amongst them.

The Department of Eagles record is a particularly 'odd' record. I love the first three tracks and then was completely ambivalent towards the rest. "Noam Chomsky Spring Break: 2002" is though, one of the best song titles I have stumbled across in the last few years. I can never believe Thief are from Hull. They sound nothing like a band from Hull, in my ears at any rate, should sound like. Thankfully though, they are nothing like the Beautiful South. Or The Housemartins. There are two tracks from Caribou included (and Robin Guthrie musters two as well): Caribou 'cos one is a Four Tet re-work and Robin Guthrie just because I have really been enjoying his 'old-gaze' through our miserable, rainy July and August...
