  • God DAYUM that sleep was amazing. In the office till damn near 11ish we were. Concerned text messages from Brother Tim ensued. He wanted to know where we were at, lest our ritualistic endeavour of sitting around on the living room sofas watching South Park and moaning about pretty much everything ever whilst trying to finally reach the penultimate chapter of Understanding Rap: Lyrics That Both You and Your Grandmother Can Comprehend diminishes into nowt-at-all (all of this is true, FYI. We are this fucking cool). He laughed at us as we ascended up the stairs of our wonderfully-situated Highgate abode with half a Pizza Hut in tow. For that, he did not get to eat any of it, and we kept it for ourselves. Yes, it is safe to say that we are more or less a slave to the proverbial groove this week. All work. No fun. Work can be fun, right? For example, we're going to a work-related thingy that involves dressing as a Hawaiian, which we're pretty good at. We may...

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd we’re back. How you doing? Did you miss us? Resort to some seriously spicy alternative shit to get your new musical kicks whilst we spontaneously took off? But you missed the swearing, didn’t you? Sure, there are blogs out there who are more on-it than we are; who have hype machine plaudits coming out … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Jack and Eliza "Hold The Line"]

Kinda lost ourselves for a minute there huh. Pardon us. We did the done-thing of having a few drinks into the wee hours and by gum we are paying for it now. Today is going slow. Reeeeeeeeeeal slow. Thankfully there was nothing in the not-even-remotely-proverbial diary this morning. Now there is plenty. Some chaps from … Read more

[Release: Racing Glaciers Announce Free Download of "VHS" Ahead Of Releasing New EP]

We’ve never been particularly good at keeping a secret; especially when it comes to expressing personal sentiments of bitterness, resentment, and the occasional burst of clandestine self-loathing. It is ironic that the ostensible forum-turned-amplifier for these sentiments known as the internet can be simultaneously a catalyst for both the positive and negative implications of spilling … Read more

[Track Of The Day (Premiere): OOFJ "Snakehips (Night Version)"]

We seriously dig alternative versions. Reworks. Remixes. Re-whatever. Think it’s great. Infinite diversities in infinite combinations. Given that we’ve been in the throws of A&R mode lately, particularly in regards to two particular producer types that we roll deep with on the reg, one might imagine how many versions of the same tracks we’ve been … Read more

[Track Of The Day: JOY. "Captured"]

Y’all ever seen a flying ant give birth to another flying ant right in front of you? Didn’t think so. It’s really quite disgraceful. Not only did these little shits have the audacity to flutter and blutter like the prickly pears they are – even on several occassions going for a swan-dive into our reassuringly-expensive … Read more

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Sorry. For swearing (yeah, right). How you doing? Yeah? Cool, shut up. We’re worried we’ve fractured our brain. We’ve ingested so much caffeine on this day that we’re basically crying decaff. It’s all good though. Lots and lots of good stuff serving as a more-than-ample and very welcome distraction to the several-million bits and … Read more

[Track Of The Day: This Be The Verse "Consequences"]

Okay. So we had a few drinks last night. We’re sorry, we thought this was ‘Mericuh. The utilitarian dream. Do what the fuck you want, so long as it doesn’t fuck with other people’s shit. In the initial stages, we thought we were just having a casual catch up with our boy Draper given that … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Highs "Summer Dress"]

Now, THAT was a Monday kids. We be blitzing through all kindsa crap that more often than not is the kind of thing that stresses us the hell out. Well, not today. Label management and/or A&R demolition is in full effect. You lot won’t even see it coming. It’ll be glorious.  On that, we’ve even … Read more

We rather gleefully set about traversing the length and bredth of London yesterday. It was the last day of Ealing Beer Festival. We’re somewhat nostalgically reminded of where we were; who we were with; what we were doing at precisely this time last year, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t take much these days seeing as … Read more
