Stateless – Bloodstream

 

Part Radiohead, part UNKLE, part Coldplay diffused with electronica and clicky-pop-scratch piano chords and you get the picture.

Jim Noir – My Patch

600px-tower_of_love.jpg

In case this one slipped by you in 05, I’m here to bring it back.   Easily one of the best song of 2005 from one of the best albums of 2005.   “My Patch” is found on the “Tower of Power” album from Jim Noir.Part Beatles, part Beta Band,   part ELO and a Beach Boys (think Pet Sounds) bridge thrown in for good measure and you have the main ingredients for “My Patch”.   This album also produced such hits as, “Eanie Meany, & “Computer Song”.

Dragonett – I Get Around (Midnight Juggernaut Mix)

Clicky-pop-dance remix of Dragonett’s “I Get Around” by the Midnight Juggernauts, which sounds a lot more fun to me than the original.   There’s certain playfulness with this remix that I thought was missing from the original.

Candie Payne – By Tomorrow

candiepayne.jpg

Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.
