Thick Plastic

All roads point to "Busy Town" at the moment as my brain, eyes and chest seize up and scream out for a remedy!

I found myself conked out on the couch at 3am, playing Springsteen's "Nebraska" on repeat […]

I have been slipping deep into a weather induced Jazz binge the last few weeks. It seems the weather has turned from dry hot days of Kenny Dorham's "Afro-Cuban" to the deep blue, wet city streets of Ornet Coleman's "Shape of Jazz to Come".

The Explorers – Stellar Haze

A band that have been working hard on their sound in the last few months The Explorers have consistantly lingered on the edge of electro-pop rock while still maintaining a real hard edge to their sound. This recent effort posted on their Soundcloud page is no different and instantly made our ears warm with bubbly summer happiness in the DirtyCloud. Check out this tune Stellar Haze and then check out […]

Bonobo – Black Sands

This new release from Bonobo has been ingraining itself on my brain for the last week. Every time I stick it on its like I've been listening to it for years, such is the depth of character and honesty in its production. Four years since the "Days to Come" LP hit the stores, Black Sands is a welcome addition to an already glittering 2010 of music. Just when you thought […]
