Banjo or Freakout?

Wonderful video for Banjo Or Freakout's "Upside Down" directed by Blake Salzman. I adore this record - it has truly sound-tracked my summer of beachy days and cider-filled nights.
Here's hoping for an Indian summer.

Ghetto Thursdays

Ghetto Mouse

I love that all the way through this song he says "You know I'm straight" but still, I think the best line is: "I'm making more cake without 'em".
Now I'm off to make some cake.

House of Rackets

Housse de Racket

This song has been in my head for a week or so now and I'm thinking that if I post about it then maybe I can inflict this on someone else. Don't get me wrong I flippin' love it but I'm going round the place mumbling about pop stars...

Five of the Best: Metronomy Remixes

Lost In ParisThe night Joe Metronomy's mouth turned into the Lost In Paris logo

Now of course we love Metronomy's original releases 'Pip Paine...' and 'Nights Out' but there's just something about their remixes; where anything they touch seems to turn to musical gold. Kate Nash, Sebastian Tellier and Charlotte Gainsbourg are just a few of the stars who have commissioned a remix and successfully so. We've picked out our top five (which was a job in itself) to share with you...

Good Shoes - Morden (Metronomy Remix)

Architecture In Helsinki - Do The Whirlwind (Metronomy Remix)

The Klaxons - Atlantis To Interzone (Metronomy Remix)

Get Cape Wear Cape Fly - I Spy (Metronomy Remix)

Lykke Li - I'm Good I'm Gone (Metronomy Remix)
