House Music

I’m moving house and there’s gonna be no time to update this blog, so instead here are twenty tracks that I’m addicted to at the moment:

Four brand new Hip-Hop cuts:
Akala – Electro Livin’ mp3
Arrested Development – Miracles mp3
Lupe Fiasco – Superstar (Feat. Matthew Santos) mp3
Taggy Matcher – Rapoors Delaught mp3

Two Soul tunes, old and new:
Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On (Truth & Rights Remix) mp3
The Rumble Strips – Time mp3

Four tracks with an electronic flavour:
David E. Sugar – I Still Like Your Clothes mp3
Hot Chip – Shake A Fist mp3
Prinzhorn Dance School – You Are The Space Invader (An Optimo (Espacio) Mix) mp3
Sonny J – I’m So Heavy mp3

Three songs from gifted songwriters with gorgeous voices:
Laura Marling – New Romantic mp3
Luke Toms – Peace By Myself mp3
Richard Hawley – Water Boy mp3

Three exciting Indie recordings:
The Pan I Am – The Final Ecstasy Of Jeremiah Ghost mp3
Simply Luke Leighfield – The Rain Will Come Again mp3
Battle – Demons mp3

Two violent Rock-n-Roll monsters:
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – In The Garden mp3
The Wallbangers – Kick The Drugs mp3

And finally two oldie/goldie mp3s, one’s a song the other is a riotously funny standup routine:
Chuck Berry – Too Much Monkey Business mp3
Bob Newhart – Driving Instructor (Pilot Script For A New TV Series) mp3

That should keep you going. If you like the tracks go to Amazon, HMV, Rough Trade, 7Digital etc and buy some of their CDs (Xmas is approaching!).

  3. GREAT post-cheers for that.
    I agree with Jon-that Sonny J track is great.

    Best of luck moving house.


  4. Some amazing tracks there. Its provided my listening pleasure all the way to work.
    Not sure I’d have shared the Rumble Strips track a week before it comes out as a single though?

  5. Thanks for these tracks. I hadn’t heard the Luke Toms song before, and I really like it. Did you notice the bit near the end (around 3:18) when he’s singing backwards? I was curious, so I reversed that part — it’s him singing lyrics that also appear in the midpoint of the song: “but the glimmer of hope / helps you to cope / lets you believe / that it’s ok here…” Pretty trippy!

  6. These tracks are great! Anything Marvin Gaye is especially fantastic! Still loving your site!

  7. I was searching for this kind of a blog for months now. Actually lost the hope of finding one, but here i am 🙂 Thanks for the great articles! Looking forward for a little read after dinner 🙂

  8. would love to hear that marvin song. seems it’s offline … 😦

  9. PLEEEZE re-up the Marvin Gaye bootie!

    Thanks, and keep up the good work!


  10. Can you hook up a RE:UP of the Taggy Matcher track? I ordered three of the other 7″s but I’ve been fiending to hear more!
