  • The sun is shining. There are smiles and piss-takes going on everywhere in the office. Ben Soep has shaved a significant chunk of his beard off. Intern Tom is cracking on a sorting out some super special secret shit that we're getting up to at Great Escape. Adam Foster from 5B is casually strutting his stuff to the kitchen whilst giving us the all-knowing all-telling eyeball. And we're genuinely excited to shut down for a couple of precious days wandering around the medieval theme park that is Bruges, albeit we have been reminded of the various challenges ahead consisting of (a) don't piss off The Finn, (b) seriously, don't piss off The Finn and (c) definitely don't piss off The Finn by answering any work-related correspondence whilst we're supposed to be chilling out. Life is pretty great right now. And it just got that little bit better with this new effort from Tall Ships, who we have been balls-deep in love with for quite some time to the extent that we tried to bring in the proverbial heavies in over the last couple of years as far as they were...

We could get used to those 4-working-day-weeks that we’ve been enjoying as of late, as have a lot of our peers we’d imagine. As a matter of fact, we’re going to have to seeing as we’re doing a proverbial one to Bruges this week with the special ladyfriend. Gonna get all Colin Ferrell about it. … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Beginners "Who Knows"]

  Anyone else feel like the four-day week in addition to the ol’ daylight savings switcheroo just beforehand has fucked everything right up? Yeah, it totally has. We kinda like it. Routines have been buggered up; in contrast to most weeks – which we have slowly started to admit to our own personal board of … Read more

It’s the middle of the week. We’ve got a million things to do, and about a millionth of the time we need to do it in. You know what that means – yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah kids, it’s lets-see-how-quickly-we-can-write-up-this-bad-boy time! Speed writing! Fuck the facts! We’ve got to get as much stuff to as many people as is … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Will Samson "Sanctuary"]

Still saturating ourselves in the calm, y’all. It’s bloody great. This whole new approach of tackling things systematically and one thing at a time rather than trying to bite off everything and digesting it in one go is working like a charm that has been tied to our next this whole time but we’ve been … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Neighbour "Darling"]

The long, long weekend has been most tranquil. Matter of fact, it very much still is. Currently we’re sat in our wonderfully-lit and comfortably-warm flat overlooking a sundrenched Hornsey area and a big-ass Alexandra Palace. Sherlock is on the telly (via the medium of the DVD box set we had originally purchased for our parents … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Chantaiman "Headshot"]

The long weekend has seemingly arrived at a super convenient time – around about the 3pm mark today, we only just recognised how fucking tired we are. More poignantly than our generic ramblings about our day-to-day are the several draining aspects happening behind the scenes, one of which came to true fruition last night upon … Read more

[Track Of The Day (Premiere): Broken Fires "Elephants"]

Fucking HELL. Today, mate. When it rains, it rains really fucking hard. Good rain, we mean. The kinda rain that makes you wanna get all Shawshank Redemption about it. Yeah, just go outside, whip all your clothes off and stand there like a lanky plank in a prolonged Jesus pose so you can show all … Read more

[Track Of The Day: FORINT "Prisoner"]

  How the bloody hell was your weekend? Ours was great ta, cheers for asking. We did a talk thingy to some people who allegedly wanted to hear us talk (as you might imagine, we like to talk a lot) for our chums at the PRS who thought it’d be great to put us on … Read more

[Track Of The Day: RedFaces "We Ain't Going Down"]

“Do you like RedFaces mate?” we were asked this afternoon by Killing Moon land baron-turned-infrequent requester of management contacts (and now we guess we can add tipster to his ever-growing list of accolades) Andy Allen of BSI Merch infamy. “Sure”, we replied. “We’re used to embarrassing the fucking shit out of everyone we speak to”. … Read more
