Efterklang – The Soft Beating

Well, I’m still coming to terms with the fact that Mark Linkous shot himself on Saturday. But his music will always live on, and I played some tonight, along with, it has to be said, some marvellous new tunes. These were they:

Soulsavers – Some Misunderstanding
Nice Nice – Big Bounce
Sparklehorse – Spirit Ditch
The Loves – Sweet Sister Delia
Liars – Goodnight Everything
Carter Tutti – Too Much, Too Much (from Liars ‘Sisterworld’ album CD2)
Archie Bronson Outfit – Run Gospel Singer
Mahalia Jackson – Come on children, let’s sing
Efterklang – The Soft Beating
Autechre – d-sho qub
Field Music – Share the words
Fursaxa – Poplar Moon
Sparklehorse – Hey, Joe
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Deanna

Something to feel Springy about

The Morning Benders “Excuses” on Vimeo.

As spring finally tries to get its act into gear and we see a few more sunny days coming our way, there’s nothing nicer than a bit of uplifting musical talent. And thanks to The Morning Benders that oh-so-appropriate track is here. The video for ‘Excuses’, from their new album ‘Big Echo’ (to be released on the 9th March 2010) manages to just miss the super cheesiness usually achieved by these sort of videos. The happy group of coincidentally ultra-talented musical friends bash out a rough and ready but spot on version of this loveable track.

So stay inside where it’s warm, look out the window at the sunshine and pretend it’s summer already…

Well am gonna chat about the geeky topic of video games.
