Leavin' On A Jet Plane

Holiday time for the Foxbat. In my absence please report all problems or whatever to Adam, your temporary admin! also I'll be scheduling some posts to go up even when I'm away so don't get weirded out that I'm still around. As such I've been prepping my in-flight soundtrack, lets get stuck in.

Roy Lichtenstein - Blam (1962)

I said before it's tradition I always try recreate the bit from Hackers on planes, and this time will be no different. Classic tune that always reminds me of those 90's trips over to España.

No trip to the beach would be complete without a sprinkling of Gorillaz's Plastic Beach. It's chock full of chiller tropical sounds that are sure to go down a treat. Perhaps a little too downbeat in parts but the second half more than makes up for that.

Now typically I associate my favourite Norwegians with the colder months, but going through my libary I've found some of the bits on The Understanding go quite well. Seeing as I haven't dug this one out in a while I think it'll be one of the many tracks accompanying me abroad.
