Jay Som – SLOW

“Sinking ’til I cannot swim” When people describe the feeling of a burgeoning relationship, the effect of gravity is never far away from their thoughts and they’re in one of three stages; about to fall, are falling or have fallen in love with the other person. For some this process is as easy as breathing,…


[edit] radio’s 2016 Recollection Mix

Welcome to [edit] radio’s recollection mix for 2016! After the positive feedback I received from last year’s mix, I decided that it’s going to become a permanent fixture in our yearly output. Essentially each mix details what we think are the best/most interesting tracks from the past 12 months of podcasting and this year it features over 100 songs split into…


Radiohead – Glass Eyes

Radiohead – Glass Eyes: Hey it’s me, I just got off the train… It was a Thursday morning, just before lunch, when my sister called and told me: “Mum has had a stroke.” FUCK… Hayley only had a few details for me, she was in a specialist ward in Winchester and couldn’t really tell me how bad…


New: Wild Beasts – Get My Bang

Wild Beasts ‘Get My Bang’ – Just Let Them Eat Cake The majority of Wild Beasts’ output has obsessed about the idea modern masculinity. A dissection of modern Englishmen that pits the northern machismo of their Yorkshire upbringing against the politically correct metro-sexuality of the arty London circles of their adult lives. The results of…


Track: Kanye West – Real Friends

Kanye West ‘Real Friends’ – Any argument, the media’ll extend it How many of us are real friends? It’s a question that millions of Facebook users (myself included) ask themselves when the stream of funny videos and GIFs give way to a mind numbing succession of vanity status updates.  After all, do we really care about the pictures of a distant…



Used: Cymbals Eat Guitars – Aerobed

The singing whisper of my piss on porcelain When an important friendship is pushed beyond breaking point the fallout can be unbearable and it’s the theme that sits behind this one off single by Cymbals Eat Guitars. Produced by Brand New frontman Jesse Lacy, the track is a brutally honest ode to the reasons that…


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

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….
