Declan Mckenna – Sagitarrius A

A return to the work of Showsec does that thing I enjoy about it best- puts me into a world of music I never normally get close to. McKenna’s Sagittarius – and a song about rockets which I haven’t been able to find yet – are stand outs in an interesting, but intentful, show.

Culture Club – Church of the Poison Mind

A recent obsession with the CC continues and even though Church was posted farily recently, and I feel bad to other records I have on repeat most months but don’t always reference here, this one’s on so much i’d feel bad to not give it a mention.

Blossoms – Your girlfiend

A gig at the Academy gives me opportunity to listen properly to a band I know consider, alongside the 1975, to be the natural successors to Duran Duran. Your girlfriend and my swimming brain standing out as almost perfect pop.

Lo-Fidelity Allstars

This may be my favourite dance tune of all time – absolute perfection.

Paul Simon – You can call me Al

I watched the Graduate, put Simon and Garfunkle on repeat, moved on to Graceland, then kept You can call me Al on repeat for about 90 minutes.

Delays – Hey Girl

Gutted to hear about the death of Greg – the Delays were a huge part of my mid 20’s, giving me the confidence to believe that being a man didnt always mean having to have muscles and tattoos. Thanks for the melodies- you made the world seem bigger.
