Real Lies – Seven Sisters

This fun track is a throwback to my days living in London. I used to travel through the Seven Sisters area on a daily basis. Feels like a lifetime ago.

Real Lies are from London and remind me more than a little of the Pet Shop Boys.


The Smiths – The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

I remembered listening to a cassette version of The Queen Is Dead on my yellow Sony Walkman! I find Morrissey a little tiresome truth be told but he had some serious game and that album saw The Smiths at just about the peak of their powers.

Jeff Buckley – Grace

This track is taken from the spectacular album of the same name. I had never heard anything like it before when I first came across it in high school. I was transfixed by it’s sheer intensity.


Glen Hansard – McCormack’s Wall

This is taken from on of my favourite albums of 2015: Didn’t He Ramble by Glen Hansard. My relationship with Irish music can be complicated; sometimes it is nice to reminded of home, sometimes I find it too twee by half.

However, I encountered this record at a time when my mind was drawn from Berkeley to the Emerald Isle which made it’s traditional sound perfect. This is especially true of this track which reminded me of my rurual small town adolescence.
