Friday Mixtape #53 - Totally Wired - mp3

We are back. After a three month break I felt ready to re-visit this little podcast. Inspired by events upcoming this weekend. That's right, Ireland is gearing up once again for the Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally. It's our own mini-Glasto.

I don't think I'll be making the trip down this year, it isn't much fun when your best mates aren't there, so we've all decided we'll make our own fun here at home. Not sure if it will cheer me up, or tide me over, but I've put together a mix of some of the artists that are going to be down the country this weekend.

Enjoy! No promises as to when I'll be back for the next mix, so go ahead and subscribe or simply watch this space!

Friday Mixtape #52 - The Birthday Mix - mp3

Happy Birthday to the mixes!
Okay, well admittedly it's been over a year since I've started making the mixes, but this is the official 52nd mix making it the birthday mix. Boo-yeah. Also, since it's late, I've made it a double... 20 songs for your listening pleasures.

After this I won't be making the mixes quite every week. They've been really fun to do, but at the moment I have a few too many things on my plate making it nearly impossible to get them out... the fact that this mix is over 2 weeks late is the proof.

But fear not, I'm not giving them up completely, they just won't be weekly. And of course you can always catch my monthly radio show I'm still doing for Radio Nowhere.

Anyways, enjoy this mix, enjoy the summer and keep subscribed so you don't miss the next mix, whenever that may be. xoxo

(and yes... that is actually me on my 1st birthday)

Friday Mixtape #51 - The Chills - mp3

This week, rejuvenated from a small break, I've been inspired but a lot of disco-y-electro-hip-pop. But with a certain down-played relaxed vibe running throughout at the same time. A diverse group of artists who all probably fancy dancing late into the night and sitting and talking until the sun rises.

I also have to thank my brother for introducing me to a few of these fun mashed-up tunes. Oh yeah, and of course included my own band's brand new track. Ha.

Friday Mixtape #50 - Distant - mp3

A breezy jangly all-over-the-place mix this week. It's up and down and in the wind and indecisive about what it wants to be when it grows up. I can certainly relate.

Here's hoping those who are distant have the chance to return now that that pesky volcano has stopped his belly rumbles. In fact, so distracted was I by the pleasant tunes, I didn't even notice there were only 9 songs! Oops, forgive me.

Listen to and/or download:

Included this week:
1. Eternal Summers - Fall Straight Back
2. Elvis Costello & The Attractions - I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down
3. Orange Juice - Poor Old Soul

5. Groove Armada - Paper Romance (Classixx Remix)

Friday Mixtape #49 - Season in the Sun - mp3

It's Friday! and the weather outside is puttin us in the mood for some blissed out, sunny oh-man-it's-nearly-summertime kind of music. The music you imagine blasting out down the street during the day where you sit around on grass clutching some cider and wishing time would just stop.

It's also my ode to my homeland of California. A lot of blissed out California themed songs included. Been missing that place a lot lately... and lucky me, I'll be there visiting in just a few weeks. Yay!

Friday Mixtape #48 - The Reflex - mp3

Spring has sprung! Yet I give you some dark electro and 80s. What can I say, that's how I roll. Get your sexy slow drum machine on tonight, life is too short. At Love Action headquarters we're definitely mourning the loss of Malcolm McLaren, so I've included two acts that were his brainchild. I've also included... to the public's ears for the very first time the official remix of my band's song Bad Boyfriend. It's the 'Cast Aside Brides Remix' and it's dark and epic and makes our band want to float away off stage in a giant hot dog. I'll be sending a link to download that track soon.
