Soooo yeah come along to GoodGod tomorrow night for this blog party thang we're doing with Danimals, Ted & Francis and Matt from Van She. It'll be fuun! Or of Saturday's more your thing, also come to GoodGod for Picnic with Hey Convict! who I've only just recently realised are quite spectacular. I'm way late to the game here but their Time To Noodle mix from 2006 is truly something to behold. After checking out a few of their mixes I'm getting a bit of a Lovefingers meets The Avalanches kinda vibe. Plenty of psychedelic goodies. Seriously can't endorse this enough!

Ooh boy this latest Max Essa record on Is It Balearic? is a stunner. The 20-minute long A side 'Panorama Suite' is just sublime, a really beautiful lush journey that could easily run for another 20 minutes if it would fit on the 12". The flip side is lovely too, a gently funky jam 'Uptown Vibration' that's coupled with a shit hot remix by Mark Seven. If you can still find a copy of this in stores I highly recommend picking one up for springtime listening bliss.

Ermm and I really dig these tracks too. One from the first Cookhouse record and a cheeky obscure cut from an Albion record on Ambassador's Reception.
The Piemen - Meat & Potato
Albion - Milky Way
