|12:25 pm - Best Song Ever (of the month)|
Swimming Pool by Emmy The Great
A gentle, shining, enchanting love song that is ever-so-slightly off-kilter. Beautifully evokes a feeling of immersion and the play of sunlight on water, not to mention the feeling of giving in and drowning in a new love.

|10:33 pm - Songs I'm excited about|
Take Me To Church - Hozier
A real gem of blue-eyed soul. This track just might rip your heart out and stomp on it.
Waking the Witch - Kate Bush
This song is a wild ride through Kate's subconscious, featuring the characters who live there. It has to be listened to to be appreciated, as no description could possibly be adequate.
Continental Shelf - Viet Cong
Sinister, eerie, imposing. This is a powerful and strange track, full of mystery.
Inspector Norse - Todd Terje
Easy-going instrumental electro track with a great groove.
Mary - John Cale
Mesmerising song with seemingly nonsense lyrics that catch the ear just perfectly. Wistful and poignant.
Sinnerman - Nina Simone
A real epic of a song, if I ever heard one. Reminds me of the Divine Comedy.
Uptight Downtown - La Roux
Irresistible pop music! Get your shimmy on with BowieGirl!
Not Dark Yet - Bob Dylan
Slow and meditative, like a cool, late evening in summer. A sad, beautiful, relatively new track from Bob.
Ali Baba - John Holt
Wonderful vocal on this one. John tells us a story about a wild dream he had last night.
Touch The Leather - Fat White Family
Pervy, weird, and funny, kind of like The Sex Pistols crossed with Lou Reed. (Video is pretty fucking funny and/or hot - can't decide - but also NSFW!)

|04:16 pm - New music and great thoughts about music|
David Bowie's new song, Sue (Or In A Season of Crime)
Love this new track. Reminds me of 1. Outside, a very very good thing!
