My Bloody Valentine

On this week’s show we turned the buzz-saw guitars up to full volume and stared firmly at our shoes as we celebrated 20 years of My Bloody Valentine’s mighty ‘Loveless’ LP. You excelled yourselves at compiling an MBV inspired playlist, from Ride to Ringo Deathstarr...and even a long-lost Kevin Shields remix of the The Frank & Walters. Cripes.

There was also new music from The Horrors and Drake, a trawl through #nowplaying digging up a forgotten slice of early 90s hip hip from Arrested Development  and a 6 song playlist from continent straddling blog Cougar Microbes


What We Played 

My Bloody Valentine
What You Want 

#Digital Digest


*The annual US Music Hackday has come up with a fun -  if somewhat pointless -  Spotify & boozing mashup, called Drinkify.  

*The Antlers are the latest band to cover the xx. You can download their cover of VCR from Pitchfork 

*and talking of the xx, the Drake album has leaked - and - oh my, someone call the autotune police - he’s done a version of THAT Jamie xx tune.  


#Now Viewing


*The wonderful Andrew Weatherall has delivered a 90 min lecture on dance music, downloading and bouffant facial hair (Vimeo)

*Lana Del Ray’s been captured on video premiering a new tune, though be warned, it does contain some ripe language  (YouTube)

*the latest edition of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert features spectral Swedish sensation Jens Lekman  

*and The Horrors have gone all Thin White Duke on us, with a cracking cover of ‘Suffragette City‘ (via Abeano)
