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.

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.
