Twerps – I Don’t Mind

This sleepy slice of Slacker-Indie feels like the shrugged answer to a bunch of humdrum questions; what shall we have for dinner tonight? Where are we going for drinks on Friday? What do you want for your Birthday? It’s a melodic abdication of responsibility, a decision to make no decision. Against the backdrop of our…


Foals – What Went Down

They threw me a party, there was no one around I find Foals an incredibly frustrating band. Since their formation in 2005 they’ve released some of the most ambitious-yet-catchy indie tracks to have come out of the UK. Songs like Red Sock Pugie, Spanish Sahara, Inhaler, My Number and What Went Down are all definitive proof that Yannis Philippakis has a knack…


Edit Radio’s 2015 Recollection Mix

Here’s [edit] radios 2015 (and first) recollection mix, featuring 80 tracks across a bunch of genres and podcasts from the year. This post originally started life as a rundown of my 50 best tracks for 2015, during which I planned to write a few thoughts about each song and list them in some order of quality….




Miguel – Coffee

Pick a star in the sky, we’ll both say goodbye No matter how many times I listen to Coffee by Miguel, I can’t help shake the feeling that it’s the Millennial successor to Spandau Ballets [in]famous track True, which I know sounds weird but let me explain. A while back I remembering reading a piece in the…


HEALTH – Stonefist!

And we both know, love’s not in our hearts! It’s probably down to my own love of the three and half minute pop song but Industrial isn’t really a type of music that I’m mega into. Like most music fans I’ve dipped my toe into the sound palette through it’s most notable artists – Throbbing Gristle and Nine…


Day Wave – Nothing At All

What Am I Good For? Somebody tell me! If there is a unifying theme that defines young adult life in the developed Internet age, it’s the abundance of choice. It doesn’t matter if it’s 2am in the morning and you fancy a spot of shopping because ASOS or Amazon will probably sate that desire. Is the struggle…


Julio Bashmore – Holding On

I don’t know why, why I adore you? I haven’t previously bought into the idea that Julio Bashmore was as ‘hot shit’ as most of the music press and my pals were saying. It might have been that most of the people hyping his music were snapback sporting twats with wanky top knot hair cuts…


Sufjan Stevens – Fourth Of July

Everything was fiction, future and prediction In his 2001 book Fooled By Randomness, academic Nassim Nicholas Taleb introduced an idea he called ‘Black Swan Theory‘. He hypothesised that there are events in human history that are so extreme that they complete alter our perception of the world after they’ve happened. His ideas are supposed to applied…
