currently listening...

1. The Field : The Sound of Light EP - four fifteen minute tracks of slow-burning genius
2. Les Amazones De Guinée : Wamato LP - glorious; see my review here
3. Foals : 'The French Open' (from the Antidotes LP) - it feels desperately calculated, but those afrobeat rhythms, I can't resist 'em.
4. Astroid Power-Up : 'Kanveh' - from the ace Twisted Nerve compilation A Kind of Awe and Reverence and Wonder
5. Hercules & Love Affair : 'Classique No. 2' - squelchy detroit techno with a pure pop heart - unbelievable
6. LCD Soundsytem : 'Freak Out / Starry Eyes' - lovely LCD newbie; get it here, quick
7. David Bowie : 'Ashes to Ashes' - blame Gene Hunt
8. Grupo Oba Ilu : Santeria LP - tremendous Soul Jazz collection of Afro-tinged Cuban music.
9. John Fahey : 'On the Sunny Side of the Ocean' - from his The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death LP
10. Shocking Pinks - 'Dressed To Please' (Deepchord Remix) - sorry for all the DFA stuff this week. I'm chasing cool, not cool.
