First off, i've never blogged before so don't expect any groundbreaking blogging techniques. Do expect, however, a mediocre blog of all things great and musical that please me. Anything from 8-bit chiptunes, right through to mega-twee-indie-pop! That said....... Let's start.

So I went to see my favourite Swedish band of the moment Hemstad play the other week, amidst a crowd of middle aged, middle class folk who were clearly not there to see Hemstad. Still, they made themselves heard and produced a rip-roaringly good show. Chris and Ake being the nice guys they are also gave me some CD's of their solo projects Das Kometen and James Ausfahrt respectively. FUN and ROMP are the words that comes to mind. See for yourself.

Das Kometen - Das Kometen


James Ausfahrt - Distroy

Also discovered theres more to Belgian electro than Stijn and Soulwax too. Belgian electro merchants GOOSE bring us a grinding disco pulse and insistent four to the floor stomp with single release ‘Black Gloves’. It’s a tune that you could run around walls to - and I’ve got the footprints on my fridge door to prove it! It serves as a wonderful reminder of Belgium’s third area of expertise, not usually acknowledged with such widespread appreciation as the nation’s excellent beer and chocolate-making skills. Also the video is 24 kinds of awesome! CHECK!
