Orphic Oxtra from La Blogotheque

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in Film, Music, Video | No Comments

I’ve written on here before about how much enjoyment I get out of La Blogotheque. It’s a place where I can meander for hours and discover so much new and brilliant music. It’s been an unsettling week for me and for some reason this spoke to me as soon as I heard it. I love ...

Just a video and some blurb from me this week. I’ve had an influx of Take Five requests and finding the time to write and research those along with a post has been near impossible. So, here is my latest musical enjoyment and another recommendation from the modcast. I also like the t-shirt worn by the ...

Allah-Las – Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)

Posted by on Nov 23, 2012 in Modernism, Music, Video | No Comments

I love finding new music. By new of course, I mean new to me. I followed a few links around the other night and came across this band. It’s pretty obvious they’re from California, their sound unmistakably of that West Coast influence. Their music conjurs thoughts of that culture; the perfect mixture of sand, sea ...

Yesterday (last night) Em and me went out. True story. Our localish drinking establishment had a music night on which was a bit of a folky affair. All of the acts were excellent. As always I was excited to discover some new music and really enjoyed the main act Boat to Row. Particularly their plethora ...

Janice Graham Band – Murder

Posted by on May 3, 2012 in Music, Video | No Comments

I first heard of this band through the incredibly insightful Modcast. One of those sit up and shout ‘Who is this?’ moments. As you can see/hear an excellent band. One foot in the past and one in the future. Clearly Janice Graham Band show their influences, of which there are many, but they have that ability ...

Introducing – Get a Move On

Posted by on Feb 19, 2012 in Jazz, Music, Video | No Comments

I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this band before. Known for their amazing cover of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing album, Introducing are now putting Mr Scruff to the er, test? No. Not test… um… no, can’t think of it. Wait. Introducing are now covering Mr Scruff. Yes – that sounds right. Everytime I’ve seen Mr ...
