Quasi, Tiga, Penguin Prison, Shout Out Louds, Biscope, Citadels, Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia, Don Diablo, Boy George, Holy Ghost!



This post is dedicated to Stacey-Lee who tragicly taken from us last week friday night

As mentioned, on a more somber note, a friend of mine (not close, we met a few times and chatted over facebook, was supposed to meet for drinks in London when I was there last, but didn’t get to) was killed on Friday night by a taxi going through an intersection. I am saddened by this as she was a lovely person whom had just returned to South Africa from London started a new business and was generally excited about the prospects. I last saw her at Cool Runnings in Fourways along with her friend and business partner Daniele, please look at this blog set up as a remembrance for her
Stacey-Lee Wilkinson the post by my good friend Steven Brimelow is worth a read as well. Another light has been extinguished too soon.

I spoke to my father yesterday, he is suffering from pancreatic cancer, he seems to be getting worse, I hope I get to see him before anything happens.

And now, you have to read this story of this POW dude,if ever you think you have it bad, read this guys story, you don't have it bad, life is beautiful and managable:
POW survival story to end all survival stories, from WWII, insane
And then, one of those "Where are they now" stories, I always had a soft spot for the
Thompson Twins, they were HUGE for a few years in the 80's, as big as Duran Duran for a while, they mde FANTASTIC pop music with an eclectic and weird twist...


Anyhoo, music heals all matters of woes, my heart is heavy, but I find solace in excellent music and it doesn’t come more excellent than my good friend Richard and his brother Roberts Biscope:

Well, that’s everyone that has submitted tracks to me this week, now it’s time for RCRD LBL and its usual awesomeness:

Shout Out Louds
Fall Hard (Passion Pit’s Summertime Radio Mix)
This rerub for Sweden’s Shout Out Louds slows but doesn’t sully that jubilant floatiness that is Passion Pit, and, if we’re being honest, also sort of sounds like Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips, which is hardly a bad thing.

Shout Out Louds Web

Penguin Prison
Something I’m Not
“Something I’m Not” is twitchy, hyper-emotive soul owes a lot to MJ—but it’s also wholly futuristic, a groundswell of icy nano-synths and nimble-fingered programming. Basically, the kind of pop that makes you want to wear suits all the time.
Penguin Prison - Something I’m Not
Penguin Prison Mon Espacio

Tiga
What You Need (Chromeo Remix)
Tiga’s Montreal neighbors, Chromeo, completely reconstruct “What You Need” to their own synthed-up, funked-up specifications.
Tiga - What You Need (Chromeo Remix)
Tiga Web Tiga MySpandex


Quasi
Repulsion
“Repulsion” sounds like the opposite of its title (it’s melodic in a careening way) and, like the band, is full-throttled, shambolic but finessed and the pinnacle of giving 150%.

And to end this with an AWESOME video, been out for a while, it has a HUGE amount of hits, sent this band from unknowns to internet sensations, wicked 8-bit…Thanks Renate:


Okay, thanks for reading and stuff, life seems more precious the more it is taken away from around us, live to the fullest that you can, love in the purest way possible and be as selfless as you can be.
Peace
