Here’s another selection of fine mp3s rocking my personal world at the mo’ (Instead of proper reviews).
I’ve long been a fan of the peculiar way Adam Green combines lush orchestration and crooner vocals with his disturbing and nonsensical lyrics. His brand new ‘Sixes & Sevens’ album jumps genres with gleeful abandon and ‘Twee Twee Dee’ represents a fun jaunt into summery Disco-Pop.

Various Production’s last single made it into my Top 100 Of 2007 so I had to pick up this Remix. They give the track an extra Electronic shine enhancing the weird stoned Hip-Hop vocal.
Dave Cloud – Puff Rider (Various Production Remix) mp3

A few people have been covering this Rhianna hit (Personally I hate the original song). The Manics do a good job at convincing me I was wrong.
Manic Street Preachers – Umbrella mp3
Here’s another version of The Wire’s theme tune. This is from the first series and it’s still probably the best.
The Blind Boys Of Alabama – Way Down In The Hole mp3
