First Album by Miss Kittin And The Hacker

If I had to choose a handful of albums that I needed, actually couldn't live without, during a bizarre epidemic then surely one of those albums would be the quietly seminial First Album by Miss Kittin And The Hacker.

Doppelganger by Curve

Back in the early noughties, while at college being bored and boring, I found myself ditching my classmates to wander around Glasgow alone. Self-isolation has always been very easy for me, maybe a bit too easy. But I wasn't lonely. I had an entire city to discover! Yes, I knew Glasgow. It was an extension… Continue reading Doppelganger by Curve

Princess Superstar Is

It started with Bad Babysitter, of course. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Drugs, sex, violence, and babysitting all in the span of three minutes and thirty five seconds. The song itself sounds perky and fun thanks to the horns in the background. Misadventure rarely sounds so fun. Of course, I had to find… Continue reading Princess Superstar Is

Songs To Lose Your Wig Over: Tape Loop by Morcheeba

Tape Loop is a downtempo masterpiece of mood and atmosphere. I say that with complete confidence. Whenever I listen to it, I reckon it sounds like the most ‘90s song ever.

Frankenchrist by Dead Kennedys

The Dead Kennedys. They're the most 'punk' punk band of all time. They represent the highest standard in which all other punk bands should be judged. As a band, as a force, they were political, righteous, and always willing to fight for their beliefs. What a lot of people didn't get (and still don't) is… Continue reading Frankenchrist by Dead Kennedys
