Marie Davidson - Good Vibes (Mocking Bird) kids had this on in the car on the way to the preschool running club I run in the park. Totally got us up for the day.

This thread is probably 10% Marie but you know...she's awesome.

The new Protomartyr Relatives in Descent is decent.

David, do you remember Glaswegians Life Without Buildings?
I know they broke up in 02 but do you know if any of them go on do to other stuff of note?
Besides Tompkins and her performance art.

Johnny Marr and Maxine Peake music video: The Priest

Johnny Marr and Maxine Peake's music video The Priest, about a young homeless girl's experiences of life on the street

I listen for Maxine, who I consider Britains finest actress, I guess most here will go with Johnny.

Beta Evers - Canto I Listening to this again makes me wonder if it goes in here. A little like the judges that follow race walkers with little flags waiting to penalise them for 'running', I think Beta is getting into singing! What is the world coming to?

Still a delicious Dante treat for all the family.

C.A.R. x Anna Lann - Cholera (Anna Lann Runway Edition) I love this. It's so cheeky, playful and dadaist with the way it's built on a bricolage of stolen pop lyrics and Coco Chanel quotes. Free download of two versions/edits if that's all you want to pay but if you give them 50p you can add it to your bandcamp.

It's a remix of this; C.A.R. - Cholera which is also spoken wordy.
