The Broken West - Perfect Game (2008)
Sometimes, for whatever reason, you don't hear a song when it's released. I've only discovered this week - and I cannot stop playing it! "Perfect Games" by "The Broken West", to me, is summer bottled into a song, whether it's imagining the drive up the Pacific Coast highway - or the reality of driving to Tenby - this song just picks me up. It's a bit like Foster the people's "pumped up kicks"....so good when the sun is out! Enjoy!

Marry Waterson & Oliver Knight - 'Windy Day' (2011)
This is not that new but was released in March this year. It has been hovering around on my playlist for sometime and I often wake up with the melody in my head and I can't shake it off. I just felt I had to share it. It's a beautiful, sad, haunting song with some a luvely sax, well I think its sax. I believe it is about suicide but I probably got that wrong as well. Anyway I hope you like it.
Marry Waterson and her brother Oliver Knight belong to the best-known folk dynasty in Britain. Their mother was Lal Waterson, the singer and experimental songwriter who died in 1998, their aunt and uncle are Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy, and their cousin is Eliza Carthy. Keep it in the family, comes to mind.
La Canaille - 'J'ai Faim feat Napoleon Maddox' (2011)
Great track with a killer bass and on point delivery. It even has American rapper Napoleon Maddox managing to rhyme 'Pastis' in a verse....fantastique! It reminds me a bit of the Tom Morello side project, Street Sweeper Social Club with it's Rap/Rock style.
I'm usually first in on my early shift at work (04h30), it's a ridiculous and an inhumane time for anyone to have to deal with. One advantage is that I can lay claim to the wireless before anyone else comes in and says 'what's this bloody shit'? Recently I have been listening to French Radio London as they do a playlist from about midnight to 6 am which is a pretty chilled and continous eclectic mix of French and English language tunes. Being half French, not only do I get my French fix but I also get to listen to stuff I wouldn't normally be exposed to, like this tune. I lost touch with French Hip Hop but this prompted me to get back into it! C'est super chouette!
