Spring has sprung! This incredible Bananamania record has got me in the sunshine mood big time. I missed out on their first release and I'm kicking myself - this is such an awesome little package. Cheeky psych-rock-disco vibes, like a house party version of History Clock. The Velvet Underground-esque banana sleeve and the name of the record 'Better Than Italians' gives a pretty good indication of where Los Massieras is coming from. Insanely fun.

This one comes courtesy of (stolen from) Alain Finkielkrautock - thanks guys! El maestro Todd Terje balearicises (like that one?) an already mellow guitar groove. The backing track sounds like one of the demo songs from a cheesy old Casio with everything on top performed in the living room by some Sting enthusiast. Don't go stroking beards; approach with a sense of humour and prepare to be rewarded. Chris Rea... What a heartthrob. Also check out this killer TT set on RBMA Radio, perfect for seeing in the warmer months. In case you're not aware, The Todd is playing Adult Disco next Saturday the 18th at the Civic. Highly bonerific.

Expecting to be smashing some seasonal deep house in the coming months. This beautiful deep yet light rework of George Duke's fluttery 'I Want You For Myself' locks hard into a groove and carefully constructs itself around the bare bones of the original. I'm toootally loving all this Keep Schtum stuff. Check out Michael's SoundCloud for loads of freshness to either populate your upcoming summer playlist or, if you're one of the unlucky northerners, stockpile some sunny goodness for nostalgia's sake during bitter winter hibernation.
