Songs of the Month: March 2017

The last month has been an incredible one in terms of new music, with new releases from some artists I’m very fond of.  But having fantastic new music from artists that you’ve never heard of, but that turn out to be pretty great in their own right makes things that bit better. Picking just six songs to sum up March has been tough, but here’s the cream of the musical crop as spring shuffles in: Martin Jensen – “Solo Dance” Tropical house is getting to — Read more →

Songs of the Month: February 2017

An eclectic mix as there’s likely ever been on this list, February’s has been a mash of tunes from different places but they’ve all fused together to create a great soundtrack to the month.

Songs of the Month: December 2015

LCD Soundsystem – “Christmas Will Break Your Heart” A Christmas miracle that could only really have been topped by the second coming of Jesus himself, LCD Soundsystem came back from the abyss on Christmas Eve with a new single that sparks further hope into the rumours they are set for a reunion. The song itself is like meeting an old friend.  Things have changed and moved on in the years gone by, but you instantly fall back into the same rhythms you were in before — Read more →
