Having returned from Splendour in a rather shady state I don't feel very confident about writing any kind of coherent post. This Los Charly's Orchestra record is fuckin great - no bullshit, just top quality live disco business made by two legends in the UK. The B2 seriously does it for me with funky-wunky bass and nice bright horns. Awesome writing, awesome performance, top notch 12".

Big love for this Beat Broker edit of Jerry Williams on Ghost Town. The original is fantastic too but this reworking just gives it a bit more drive and conviction. Lots of reverb and echoing and all kinds of effecty fluttering going, it's well nice. Surprise bonus on the B with a sub-90bpm rock bumper.

Shiit this little Bop Singlayer 10" out on Really Swing has really got me frothing. Listening to one song won't do it justice - there are 8 tracks crammed onto that little disc, each a brief brilliant idea with an overall vibe that smooshes together all kinds of genres.

40 Thieves have churned out some superb stuff in the last little while, one of my favourites being this release on Leng. Lovely groovy spacey sorta stuff. My brain is collapsing and I'm really running out of words here, everybody knows 40 Thieves are always absolutely top quality and this is one of their finest. Buy it, hey.
