Sunday Mixtape #42 - Real Life - mp3

This week's mix is designed to be filling like a big Sunday dinner. It's got lots of unusual flavors that meld together into a exciting musical melange. It's a bit disco and uplifting and dancy, which is unusual for a Sunday I suppose, but it's meant to pick up your spirits despite the fact the weekend is coming to a close. There is a little fun treat hidden in there which is a song from an old band I was in that has since been re-jigged into a song for my current band. Ooooh sneaky.

Friday Mixtape #41 - Nothing But A Heartache - mp3

Last week I gave you love... so it's only fair that I give you some songs from the other side, the heartbreak side. That's right, this is a mixtape chock full of anti-love songs for the cynic that lives inside all of us. Come on, life isn't all roses and chocolates.

So settle yourself into your couch, grab that tub of Ben & Jerry's and the remote, and have an anti-love night all to yourself.

Friday Mixtape #40 - Boys & Girls In Love - mp3

I've never been a big sap that's worried about Valentines Day traditions. Yeah I'm guilty of being smug and in a relationship and all, but I'm a bigger fan of romantic gestures that aren't suggested by a card company or restaurant offering a prix fixe.


I do love a good love song, and what better time to let my inner sap who enjoys romantic music come out but at Saint Valentines... right? So here you go. Go on and burn it on a CD and pretend you made the mixtape yerself... (except for that bit where I talk at the start... so maybe nevermind)

Anyways, enjoy all you lovers and non-lovers and wannabe lovers... this mix is for you <3

Friday Mixtape #39 - Weekend - mp3

This week's mix demonstrates, without a doubt, that my taste is quite varied - starting with an oh so brand new remix of Noah & The Whale, before descending into a spangly cowbell-laden disco section, until moving into garage music, new & old, and then finishing off with some trusty girl groups. Dreamy electro? Yep. Shameless disco. Uh huh. Cher? Sure! Belarussian Garage? Well of course!

There's more info on the main site: - but you're clearly just here for the music.
