Monday Mixtape – Miscellania

Happy Monday!

Today’s mixtape is just a bunch of stuff I’ve enjoyed in the last few weeks. No overarching theme, nothing big and clever, just some music I’m currently enjoying. In the interests of full disclosure, I got some of this music as payment for a little work I did, from a friend at Fat Cat Records, who frankly, I’d have done it for for free (both the label and the friend!).

Firstly, last night’s Oscars had my favourite song of last year performed live. You go, rapping Andy Samberg.

Next up, some Hot Chip, who are back again, still great, and still charmingly odd as ever.

And here is some Tal National, a Malian band that I know next to nothing about, but damn they are good.

And as I’ve listened to is a stupid amount over the last week, here is SL2, as I’m obsessed. I’m listening to 1992 music at the moment as part of The Now Project, my ambitious (read as stupid) plan to listen to, and review, every UK Now That’s What I Call Music album. I’m up to Now 22, and there are 90 to get through. Please feel free to have a click through and examine the idiocy of a man unperturbed by pointlessness.

And finally, Blur are back! With Graham Coxon, so actual Blur, not a Damon Albarn vanity project! I am rather happy about this.
