Man Like Me ‘Squeeze’

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you just might have noticed me banging on about this track a LOT. That’s because it’s brilliant. This is Mighty Boosh style pop- intelligent, complusive, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Above all though, this track will put a big old smile on your face, and you’ll want to tell all your friends about it.

Squeeze is out on iTunes now. Buy it. Let’s have something good in the charts for once.


I’m currently practicing being a vegetarian a bit for when I eventually move to LA and become a vegan, which is just how things work. As such, I have started to get excited (read:smug) by places that do excellent vegetarian food. Tupelo Honey on Camden’s Parkway not only does a delightful line in veggie lasagnas and posh salads, it also does really good coffee, and really good cake. Triple threat. Go there.

1000 cool not-quite-vegan-yet points (oh PS they also do meat)

Syron ‘Breaking’

Expect big things from this one. This is Syron a.k.a 19 year old Daisy Syron from London, and her debut 'Breaking’ has already been all over Radio 1, 1Xtra, and MTV, which isn’t bad going.

Syron has managed to dig up everything that was great about garage in the 90s and make it cool again. LOVE.

Here is what happened in my brain this afternoon: ‘Oh that was a nice meeting, now I’ll just go back home…well, might as well walk down Marylebone High Street, just to see what’s in the windows, it’s basically on the way, oh look, Sandro has a sale on…WHAT.IS.THAT? Hello 1000 cool points nominee of the day.’

I’m paraphrasing,  but that’s essentially how it went. This shirt is the coolest thing I have found so far this year and the picture doesn’t even do it justice. Well done Sandro. You win.

Mikky Ekko ‘Pull Me Down’

Wow. OK I am really sorry that it is Jan 5th and everyone is miserable and all I am doing today is posting emo, gorgeous vocally stuff when I should probs be going in on psychadelia and rap or something for the greater good, but listen to this guy! His voice is glorious.

The production on this is hip-hop esque, if that helps…atmospheric and dreamy, look out for Mikky Ekko in 2013. Apparently his debut album is due out this year featuring collabs with some major producers, so he’s kind of a big deal.

AlunaGeorge ‘Watching Over You’


I totally LOVE AlunaGeorge. Every single track they have made so far has been brilliant, and hence has appeared on this blog, and will continue to do so until they make something not brilliant, which I hope never happens.

Enjoy.

Get ready to have your mind blown wide open. This is almost too much for a Sunday afternoon head. Srsly. How does this not have more views? This = the future. 

I did a new thing today, one of those ‘New Year, New Me’ things, perhaps (/ boredom/ slow news day). Anyway, I went to the cinema by myself. The snacks were gross, the midday completely empty screening made me feel like maybe there were better things I should be doing with my time, but the film itself was INCREDIBLE.

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful The Artist is. Moving, charming, gripping, funny. I genuinely didn’t expect a feature length silent movie to be able to hold my somewhat limited attention span, but I didn’t even check my phone once, that’s how good it is.

Go and see it now, now, now.

Ten thousand 1920’s cool points. (Inflation happened or something, that’s approx 1000 in real terms)

Eugene McGuinness ‘Shotgun’


You will be walking round your house singing this by the end of the day. Guaranteed.

Crystal Castles ‘Wrath of God’

Just a modestly titled track to lead up to the next album, then. This is Wrath of God from Crystal Castles’ forthcoming album (III), and it’s big, in a sort of 5am at a rave everyone is off their nut and there’s a strobe light sort of a way.

Do not listen on a hangover. Do listen in all other scenarios.

Friday Jam.

Nicki Minaj ‘Beez In The Trap’.

Hello weekend. Shall we just start this thing now?

youtube

The Blow ‘True Affection’

THIS SONG IS SO GOOD THAT IT ALMOST DOEN’T MATTER THAT I’M CIRCA 3 YEARS LATE ON IT.


Word on the street is that after a few years touring/ regrouping/ recording, we can expect new material from The Blow soon, so actually in some ways this post is vaguely topical and relevant.

1000 belated cool points.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM 1000 Cool Points! Let’s start this right, shall we? Here is Scissor Sisters’ ‘Shady Love’: Massive tune, sick production from one of my all time favourite DJs in life ever, Boys Noize, and featuring a young lady who is about to kill it this year, Krystal Pepsy aka Azealia Banks.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 2012.
