this intrigues me...steve lamacq has been talking about this upcoming cd release quite a bit on his show and has been predicting a shoegaze revival for 2009. i'm crossing my fingers.

i think he chose a really weak slowdive track and i'm surprised to not see any MBV. hmmm...and i would have picked a better ride song as well, but i guess they don't pay me to mix cd's now, do they?
jungle drum was a track-o-the-year.
i found big jumps to be kind of watered-down feist.
the album before (fisherman's woman) blew me away - esp. nothing brings me down, and serenade. and she's super cute.
this 'heavenly wine and roses' mix i made last week. i'm a little proud of the dnb>cowboy junkies>dnb transition in one hour. The books covering nick drake is amazing - dead accurate with the cello work, but all of the fingerpicking is done with plucky little synths. the vocals suffice. The prefuse - like everything off the new LP - is really catchy.
