New Wave Of Music #23

Good evening fine people, here's a tasty selection of wicked tunes for you to consume if you're hungry. Just a little point, you may have noticed some posts have been going missing lately (not just this blog, others blogspot blogs too). Not sure why which is pretty frustrating, but i'm trying to recover as many of the posts as I can so please bare with me. 15/10/08 - EDIT - ALL MP3's HAVE BEEN REMOVED BY REQUEST

The Laughing Light Of Plenty - The Rose
This song is so awesome! It's pure disco genius from Thomas Bullock (Map of Africa, Rub N Tug, ex-A.R.E. Weapons) and Eddie Ruscha who make up The Laughing Light Of Plenty. It's got such a great groove and reminds me very much of the classic disco tunes from the 80's. Bust that move! More!

Coldplay - Lost!
Coldplay are one of my guilty pleasure bands i'm afraid, especially tracks like this epic. I know I won't get much credit from you journalistic types, but they just seem to grab me and get into my head. More!

The Killers - Human
Here's another band that could be considered a guilty pleasure. This track grows on me more every time I listen to it, The Killers are particuarly great at writing songs like that. Yes it's nothing ground-breaking, but sometimes who cares! More!

Klaxons - Golden Skans (SebastiAn remix)
Throughout the past few months i've picked up on French(?) producer SebastiAn for his unique approach to remixing songs. Basically to rip them up and destroy them! This is quite a spacey, trippy take on those Klaxon boys. More!

Mongrel - The Menace
Another supergroup, another flop? Well not on the basis of this song. Mongrel features members of the Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles, Reverend And The Makers, and the hugely talented rapper Lowkey. Album is done, but already cancelled shows...mmm. More!

Middle Class Rut - All Walks Of Life
Don't know too much about these Californian rockers, apart from knowing that they make me want to nod my head and tap my foot! They sound quite grungey but also quite contemporary, certainly looking to find out more about them. More!


  1. Good call on Middle Class Rut - I'm really liking the sound. Liking the blog, keep up the good work!
