Monday Uncertainty

Another week and I feel the same once again. Let's not dwell on feels and instead songs. Songs that will be coming up as per us after the bit of art.

Betty Goodwin - Moving Towards Fire (1983)

Taking a trip back to the 1990's again with Everything But The Girl again. I think I might have said before that the album's aged pretty well, which *might* not be entirely true. The Drum & Bass parts hold up great for sure, but parts of it (and this track in particular) are mid-to-late 90's in audio form. But to be honest who doesn't like to indulge in some of that every now and then?

I've not posted anything from Felix in a long time. A bit of a shame really because after Daft Punk he's the one responsible for me getting serious into the wide world of electronic music. I'll admit He Was King has a couple really duff moments on it but I adore most of it; I saw one review complain it was Felix trying (and failing) to recapture the glory days of Kittenz & Thee Glitz but I don't see it that way, to me this is Felix revisiting the inspirations that led to the Glitz sound one last time, with an extra 8 years of experience.

Yet another reminder of things I need to pick up again. I've been out of the loop on all things Simian Mobile Disco for a loooooong time now. So in an effort to spur me on to actually check them out again I am going to post one of my favourites from Temporary Pleasure.
