Speed Of Dark

Emiliana Torrini’s Speed Of Dark from last year’s album Tookah- slow, dreamy, soft focus, a touch of 80s electro-pop about it but modern too.

I think today is Christmas tree buying and decorating day.

Packing

We had friends round for tea and a couple of glasses of wine each and we’re now trying to pack to go on holiday tomorrow. And I’m mucking about on the internet.

I missed this absolute gem of a song and only discovered it by accident earlier today- from last year, Emiliana Torrini and Steve Mason, noisy and way up there. The noise, I’ve just discovered, is provided by Toy.

I Go Out

And this, a remix of Lana Del Rey’s Video Games by Dreadzone’s Greg Dread. Lovely.

Right. How many pairs of shorts do I need?

Speed Of Dark

Mr Weatherall’s been very busy recently, remixes pouring out hither and thither- another newbie can be found here. It’s a ten minute spacey job of Iceland’s Emiliana Torrini (and there’s a free download button too). Mid-tempo, chuggy, synth workout that goes on and on and on.

Picture spot- Raymond Poulidor, the best rider never to win the Tour de France. Eternally second.
